16 Wawagxotha esihlalweni sokugweba.
17 Ambamba ke onke amaGrike uSostene, umphathi wendlu yesikhungu, ambetha phambi kwesihlalo sokugweba. Akwabakho nanye yezo zinto ayikhathalelayo uGaliyo.

23 Enze ixesha elithile khona, wemka, walityhutyha ilizwe laseGalati, nelaseFrigi, ebomeleza bonke abafundi.
24 Ke kaloku wathi umYuda othile, ogama linguApolo, wakwa-Alesandire ngokuzalwa, umfo oliciko, wehla waya e-Efese, enobunkunkqele ezibhalweni.
25 Lowo ke wayeyifundisiwe ngomlomo indlela yeNkosi; waza evutha ngumoya wathetha, wafundisa ngokucokisekileyo izinto ezingayo iNkosi, esazi kakuhle ubhaptizo lukaYohane lodwa.
