1And it came to passinIconium, that theywentbothtogetherinto the synagogue of the Jews,andsospake , that a greatmultitudeboth of the Jews and also of the Greeksbelieved .
2But the unbelievingJews stirred up the Gentiles,andmade their minds evil affectedagainst the brethren.3Longtimethereforeabodethey speaking boldlyin the Lord,which gave testimony unto the word of hisgrace,andgrantedsignsandwonders to be donebytheirhands.4But the multitude of the city was divided : andpartheldwith the Jews,and part with the apostles.5Andwhen there was an assaultmadeboth of the Gentiles, and also of the Jewswiththeirrulers, to use them despitefully , and to stonethem,6
They were ware of it, and fleduntoLystraandDerbe,cities of Lycaonia,and unto the region that lieth round about:7
And there they preached the gospel .
8And there sat a certainmanatLystra,impotent in his feet,being a cripplefromhismother'swomb,whonever had walked :
The sameheardPaulspeak : who stedfastly beholdinghim,andperceivingthat he hadfaith to be healed ,
10Said with a loudvoice,Standuprightonthyfeet.And he leapedandwalked .
11And when the peoplesawwhatPaul had done , they lifted uptheirvoices,saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come downtous in the likeness of men.12And they calledBarnabas , Jupiter;andPaul,Mercurius,becausehewas the chiefspeaker.13Then the priest of Jupiter,whichwasbeforetheircity,broughtoxenandgarlandsunto the gates, and would have done sacrificewith the people.14
Which when the apostles,BarnabasandPaul,heard of, they renttheirclothes, and ran in among the people, crying out ,
15Andsaying , Sirs,why do ye these things?Wealsoaremen of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turnfromthesevanitiesunto the livingGod,whichmadeheaven,andearth,and the sea,and all things that are therein :
16Whointimespastsufferedallnations to walk in their ownways.17Neverthelessheleftnothimself without witness, in that he did good , and gaveusrain from heaven,andfruitfulseasons,fillingourhearts with foodandgladness.18And with thesesayingsscarce restrained they the people, that they hadnot done sacrifice unto them.19And there came thither certain JewsfromAntiochandIconium,whopersuaded the people,and, having stonedPaul,drew him out of the city,supposinghe had been dead .
20Howbeit, as the disciples stood round abouthim, he rose up , and cameinto the city:and the next day he departedwithBarnabastoDerbe.21And when they had preached the gospel to thatcity,and had taughtmany,a they returned againtoLystra,and to Iconium,andAntioch,22Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith,andthatwemustthroughmuchtribulationenterinto the kingdom of God.23And when they had ordainedthemelders in everychurch, and had prayedwithfasting, they commendedthem to the Lord,onwhom they believed .
24And after they had passed throughoutPisidia, they cametoPamphylia.25And when they had preached the wordinPerga, they went downintoAttalia:26
And thencesailedtoAntioch, from whence they had beenrecommended to the grace of Godfor the workwhich they fulfilled .
