Acts 6
King James Version (KJV)

Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations (AWPR)

1 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration.   (KJV)

1)    Then in these days, the pupil disciples - learners 
        - -  multiplying and increasing greatly in number - -   
        (there) came into being a grumbling of the Hellenists
        up alongside with the Hebrews because
        the widows of them (were) looked to the point of, but aside /
        the widows of them were (though seen, intentionally) ignored
        in the daily ministration service  
        [that distribution made to each who had financial need].

2 Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.    (KJV)

2)    Then the 12, having called 
        the multitude - fulness (of people) - throng
        up to and alongside with the pupil disciples - learners,
        they said,
              'It is certainly not pleasing - satisfying to us 
               to leave behind and forsake the intelligent Word of GOD
               to serve /  to wait       upon tables.

3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.    (KJV)

3)           Look upon and observe closely now, brothers,
              (for) 7 men from out of you (are) 
              to be testified - witnessed to
              (as) full (of) / (as) complete (in)   
              (the) Holy Spirit
              and of wisdom:
              whom we will set down and place / whom we will appoint
              upon this need / upon this necessity.

4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.     (KJV)

4)           Then we will endure and remain stedfast 
               up to and alongside
               to prayer and the service - ministry - administration
               of the intelligent Word.'

5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:     (KJV)

5)    And the intelligent speech was accommodating 
        and pleasing      
        in the face of all the multitude,
       and they selected out - chose out     Stephen,
       a man fully covered - full - complete   
       of trusting believing faith
       and the Holy Spirit;
       and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, 
       and Timon, and Parmenas,
       and Nicolas a proselyte  [a converted Gentile to Judaism]
       of Antioch:

6 Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.    (KJV)

6)    Whom they caused to stand, and placed 
        in the face of  - in the presence of - before 
        the Apostles:
        and having prayed (with worship - petition - giving thanks)
        they laid - placed upon       them the hands.

7 And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.    (KJV)

7)    And the Word of GOD grew - increased 
        and was fully multiplied,
        the number of pupil disciples - learners in Jerusalem
        (being) vehemently much, 
         and the (newly) made into a crowd of the priests
        [of the Temple as Kohenim pupil disciples - learners]
        listened to and obeyed - yielded to - believed 
        the Faith.

8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.     (KJV)

8)    Then Stephen, full of trusting believing faith
         and power,
         did - performed - brought about 
         wonders - amazing miracles
         (that were watched and remembered)
         and great miraculous signs 
         [that served a Divine purpose]
         in the people.


9 Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen.     (KJV)

9)   Then rose up and stood again [in opposition]
        those out of the Synagogue of (the) Libertines /
        the Synagogue of Freed Men,
        and Cyrenians and Alexandrians and those from
        Cilicia and Asia seeking  together - questioning and 
        disputing        with Stephen.  

10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.    (KJV)

10)   And (they) were certainly not strong enough 
         to stand alone - to resist
         the wisdom - knowledge with 
         understanding and (cunning) insight  
         and the spirit with which he spoke at random.


11 Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.     (KJV)

11)    Then at that time (they)
         threw under - suborned - placed under (collusion)
         men  laying down definite words, saying,
               'We have listened intently  and heard from him
                 speaking at random
                 blasphemous - abusive - reviling and 
                 wickedly slanderous    
                 statements - speeches - sayings - words 
                 into / toward 
                 Moses and GOD.'


12 And they stirred up the people, and the elders, and the scribes, and came upon him, and caught him, and brought him to the council,    (KJV)

12)    And they stirred up together and roused up 
          the people and the Presbyters / Elders and the Scribes
          [into a mob frenzy].

          And (in hostility) approaching upon (him),
          they together seized and took him (in violence),
          and led (him) away into the Sanhedrin.


13 And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:     (KJV)

13)    And they caused to stand false witnesses - lying witnesses
         laying down definite words, saying,
               'This man certainly not 
                pauses - stops - takes a rest - ceases 
                speaking at random
               blasphemous - abusive - reviling and 
               wickedly slanderous    
               statements - speeches - sayings - words 
               down against this Holy Place and the Law:

14 For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.     (KJV) 

14)        For we have intently listened to and heard him
             laying down definite words, saying,
             ' ' Jesus - Yeshua     the Nazarene,
                this One will unfasten - loose and throw down - destroy
                this Place,
                and will change - transform
                the Customs - Customary Practices
                which Moses gave over - delivered over     to us.' '

15 And all that sat in the council, looking stedfastly on him, saw his face as it had been the face of an angel.     (KJV)

15)   And straining (the eyes), intently looking into him,
        all those sitting down in the Sanhedrin 
        beheld and saw the face of him
        as if the face of an angel
        [as if radiating forth brilliant light]
