katapi HOME Acts 28:1-10 - Paul on the Island of Malta  Ac.28.1-10 (Melita, Malta)

28 1 After we had escaped, we then learned that the island was called Malta. 28 2 And the natives showed us unusual kindness, for they kindled a fire and welcomed us all, because it had begun to rain and was cold. 28 3 Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and put them on the fire, when a viper came out because of the heat and fastened on his hand. 28 4 When the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, "No doubt this man is a murderer. Though he has escaped from the sea, justice has not allowed him to live." 28 5 He, however, shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm. 28 6 They waited, expecting him to swell up or suddenly fall down dead; but when they had waited a long time and saw no misfortune come to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god.

28 7 Now in the neighbourhood of that place were lands belonging to the chief man of the island, named Publius, who received us and entertained us hospitably for three days. 28 8 It happened that the father of Publius lay sick with fever and dysentery; and Paul visited him and prayed, and putting his hands on him healed him. 28 9 And when this had taken place, the rest of the people on the island who had diseases also came and were cured. 28 10 They presented many gifts to us; and when we sailed, they put on board whatever we needed.
