it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude
both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.
the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil affected against the brethren.
3Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony
unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
4But the multitude of the city was divided: and part held with the Jews, and part
with the apostles.
5And when there was an
assault made both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews with their rulers, to use them despitefully, and to stone them,
6They were ware of it, and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and
unto the region that lieth round about:
there they preached the gospel.
sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked:
9The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he
had faith to be healed,
10Said with a loud
voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.
when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down
to us in the likeness of men.
12And they called
Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.
13Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates,
and would have done sacrifice with the people.
when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,
15And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with
you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the
sea, and all things that are therein:
in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our
hearts with food and gladness.
these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.
19And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the
people, and having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.
20Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the
city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.
when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
22Confirming the souls of the disciples, and
exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
23And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting,
they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.
after they had passed throughout Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia.
25And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia:
26And thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace
of God for the work which they fulfilled.
when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had
opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
there they abode long time with the disciples.
