(22) And having stood in the midst of the Areopagus Sha’ul said, “Men of Athens, I see that you are too superstitious in every matter. (23) “For passing through and observing the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO THE UNKNOWN MIGHTY ONE. Not knowing then whom you worship, I make Him known to you: (24) “YAHUAH, who made the world and all that is in it, this One being Master of heaven and earth, does not dwell in dwellings made with hands. (25) “Nor is He served with men’s hands – as if needing any – Himself giving to all life, and breath, and all else. (26) “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, having ordained beforehand the times and the boundaries of their dwelling, (27) to seek the Master, if at least they would reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. (28) “For in Him we live and move and are, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ (29) “Now then, since we are the offspring of Aluahim, we should not think that the Aluahim is like gold or silver or stone, an image made by the skill and thought of man. (30) “Truly, then, having overlooked these times of ignorance, Aluahim now commands all men everywhere to repent, (31) because He has set a day on which He is going to judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed, having given proof of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” (32) And hearing of the resurrection of the dead, some indeed mocked, while others said, “We shall hear you again concerning this.” (33) And so Sha’ul went out from among them. (34) But some men joined him and believed, among them Dionusios the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.
Note: Like the Athenians of Sha’ul’s day, many people today are too superstitious or very religious. They worship idols made by the hands of men and pray “TO THE UNKNOWN MIGHTY ONE”. We, who know the true Names of our Creator and His Son, are commanded to proclaim to the people, and to witness that it is YAHUSHUA who was appointed by YAHUAH to be Judge of the living and the dead. And that through His Name, everyone believing in Him does receive forgiveness of sins (Acts 10:42-43).
