Yehudah and Sila, also being prophets themselves, encouraged the brothers with many words, and strengthened them.
After they had spent some time there, they were sent back with greetings from the brothers to the apostles.
But Sha'ul and Bar-Nabba stayed in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others also.
After some days Sha'ul said to Bar-Nabba, "Let's return now and visit our brothers in every city in which we proclaimed the word of the Lord, to see how they are doing."
Bar-Nabba planned to take Yochanan with them also, who was called Mark.
But Sha'ul didn't think that it was a good idea to take with them someone who withdrew from them from Pamphylia, and didn't go with them to do the work.
Then there arose a sharp contention, so that they separated from each other. Bar-Nabba took Mark with him, and sailed away to Cyprus,
but Sha'ul chose Sila, and went out, being commended by the brothers to the grace of God.
He went through Aram and Cilicia, strengthening the assemblies.
