7 那地附近有些田产，是岛上的首领部百流所拥有的。他欢迎我们，善意招待我们三天。8 那时，部百流的父亲患了痢疾，发热卧病在床，保罗到他那里，为他祈祷按手，医好了他。9 这么一来，岛上其他有病的都来了，也都治好了。10 他们多方面尊敬我们；到开船的时候，又把我们所需要的东西送来。
7 There was an estate nearby that belonged to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and showed us generous hospitality for three days. 8 His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. 9 When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured. 10 They honoured us in many ways; and when we were ready to sail, they furnished us with the supplies we needed.
God made it clear how much he likes the kindness shown to people in misery and to foreigners. Even if the ones helped are not grateful or are not able to reward those who have done good to them, God himself will abundantly restore to men whatever they have given at his commandment.
