The same thing happened in the city of Iconium. Paul and Barnabas went into the synagogue and spoke in such a way that a large crowd of Jews and Greeks believed.
But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up some people who were not Jewish and poisoned their minds against the believers.
Paul and Barnabas stayed in the city of Iconium for a long time. They spoke boldly about the Lord, who confirmed their message about his good will by having them perform miracles and do amazing things.
But the people of Iconium were divided. Some were for the Jews, while others were for the apostles.
In the meantime, Paul and Barnabas found out that the non-Jewish people and the Jewish people with their rulers planned to attack them and stone them to death.
So they escaped to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding territory.
