Acts Chapter 7:1-19 in the King James and Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Versions

Acts 7
King James Version (KJV)
Alternate with Word Pictures and Reiterations (AWPR) 

1 Then said the high priest, Are these things so?   (KJV)

1)    Then said the First Priest - the High Priest,
               'If     [conditionally if]     there it follows that
                these things      hold (and continue to possess)?

2 And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,  (KJV)

2)    The he shined forth in his answer and said, 
             'Men, brothers, and fathers.
              Listen intently and hear.
              The GOD of glory (to whom honor is duly rendered)
              was seen and beheld and perceived with the eyes
              to the Father of us, Abraham,
              being in Mesopotamia      prior to / before
              he dwelt in a permanent fixed dwelling place
              in Haran.
3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.    (KJV)

3)          And said up to and alongside with him,
                    'Go away out of this land of you,
                     and out from the relatives / kindred  of you;
                     and here to this place, come,
                     into a land which to you 
                     I will show - exhibit - display 
                     [for you to see]. '


4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.    (KJV)

4)     Then at that time, going forth out of (the) Land of Chaldea,
         he dwelt and resided in a permanent  fixed dwelling place
         in Haran.

         And from that place, after the dying off   [by natural causes]
         of the father of him, 
         moved the house dwelling of himself into this Land,
         in which you now dwell.

5 And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.     (KJV)

5)     And  [GOD]  He certainly not gave him  [Abraham] 
         of His [/ of GOD's]  own good will and accord 
         an inheritance in it, nor a step of a foot
         [not even a single step forward]:
          and   [GOD]   commanded by proclamation or decree /
          and   [GOD]  promised     
          him of His own good will and accord to give (it) 
          into a possession to own it,
          and to the seed of him [to the seed of Abraham] after him,
          (there) certainly not being or existing to him a child.

6 And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.    (KJV)

6)     Then GOD spoke thus at random in this manner,
         that the seed of him  [the seed of Abraham] 
         will be a sojourner   [comparable to a resident alien]
         in another (of a different kind) / in a strange (even hostile) 
         and they will subjugate - enslave it,
         and will do evil with injury, 400 years.

7 And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.     (KJV)

7)          'And the ethnic nation to whom they may 
              be deprived of freedom and serve  (as subjects to),
              I will judge, (and exact a punishment upon)'   said GOD.
              'But after these    will come out / will depart
               and will      serve for / worship to     Me
               in this place.'

8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.     (KJV)

8)    And He [GOD]    gave (of His own good will and accord)
        to him  [Abraham]    
        a Testament - a  Disposition to order - a Will of intent
        of Circumcision;
        and in this manner, thus he  [Abraham]  begat - he fathered
        Isaac, and circumcised him on the 8th day.

        And Isaac  [begat] Jacob, 
        and Jacob   [begat]  the 12 Patriarchs.

9 And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,     (KJV)

9)   And the Patriarchs being filled with (envious and jealous) zeal,
       gave over (for payment)  Joseph into Egypt:  
       but GOD was with him,

10 And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.    (KJV)

10)    And took him out - plucked him out
          of all the crushing and squeezing (to the point of breaking)
          afflictions - tribulations    of him;
          and of His own accord and good will  [GOD]
          gave him  [Joseph]   rejoicing benevolent grace
          and wisdom / knowledge with understanding and (cunning) 
          in against / opposite / before / in the presence of
          Pharaoh, King of Egypt;
          and he set down - and he placed  (in office) him   [Joseph] 
          (as) Leader - Ruler     over Egypt
          and the whole house of him.

11 Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and great affliction: and our fathers found no sustenance.   (KJV)   

11)  Then came a famine - starvation - great suffering for lack of food
        (for a long period)      upon all the land of Egypt and Canaan,
         and great crushing and squeezing (to the point of breaking)
         affliction / tribulation;
         and the fathers of us certainly did not find 
         edible vegetation  [of the Earth, whether for men or 
         domesticated animals]
         whether by search or inquiry.


12 But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.   (KJV)

12)     Then Jacob, having listened intently - having heard of existing
           wheat - corn - grain(s)    in Egypt,
           he sent away out forth the fathers of us first.

13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.   (KJV)

 13)    And in the second   [journey]  Joseph was made known again
           to the brothers of him;
           and the offspring - lineage - family - race of Joseph 
           came into being as shining forth and revealed  to Pharaoh.

14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.  (KJV)

 14)    Then Joseph sending forth   sent for - called for - summoned
           (by invitation)  Jacob his father 
            and all the gathered together relatives of him:
            in souls, 75.  

15 So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers,  (KJV)

15)    Then Jacob descended down - went down into Egypt
          and came to a completion / and died,
          he, and the fathers of us.  

16 And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.  (KJV)

16)    And they were transported - transferred into Shechem,
          and were set and placed 
          in the memorial sepulchre / in the tomb
          which Abraham bought - purchased 
          near to the sons of Hamor of Shechem
          (for) a price - (for) a value      of silver.


17 But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,   (KJV)

17)    Then as the time of the Promise which GOD swore  by oath
          to Abraham drew near,
          the people increased in number - the people grew,
          and were multiplied to fullness as of a great multitude
          in Egypt 

18 Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph.   (KJV)  

18)   Continually until (there) rose up - stood up another 
         king of a different kind, who certainly knew not
         nor saw Joseph.

19 The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.   (KJV)

19)    This one   down against wisdom / 
          This one with deceitful treacherous cunning

          [that subtility used to deceive with reasoning that is 
           used to cheat, delude, gain advantage, ensnare, or 
           overcome righteous opposition] 

          with the offspring - family - lineage - race of us,
          dealt dishonestly out of       the doing good / the good (labor)
          of the fathers of us  (because the fathers of us were good),
          to bring about - cause - make exposed and put or cast out to die
          the babes of them into that (which they) 
          might not be giving life as preserved alive.
