“Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:”
King James Version (KJV)
Ac 18:9 The spake the Lord to Paul. In some way he manifested his presence and cheered him in his work, by the assurance of great success. We know that the result was not only a flourishing church in Corinth, to which two epistles were written, but churches through Achaia, the province of which Corinth was the capital (2Co 1:1).
