Acts 17:27-29 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

27 that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way towards him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, 28 for

“‘In him we live and move and have our being’;[a]

as even some of your own poets have said,

“‘For we are indeed his offspring.’[b]

29 Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man.
