In 1Iconium2they entered the synagogue of the Jewstogether , and spoke in such a manner3that a largenumber of peoplebelieved, both of Jews and of 4Greeks.
But 5the Jews who a6disbelievedstirred up the bminds of the Gentiles and embittered them against7the brethren.
3Therefore they spent a longtime there 8speakingboldly with reliance upon the Lord, who was testifying to the word of His grace, granting that c9signs and wonders be done by their hands.
410But the dpeople of the city were divided ; and someesided with 11the Jews, and some with 12the apostles.
And when an attempt was made by both the Gentiles and 13the Jews with their rulers, to mistreat and to 14stone them,
they became aware of it and fled to the cities of 15Lycaonia, 16Lystra and 17Derbe, and the surroundingregion ;
and there they continued to 18preach the gospel.
At 19Lystra20a man was sittingwho had nostrength in his feet, lame from his mother'swomb, who had neverwalked.
9Thisman was listening to Paul as he spoke, who, 21when he had fixed his gaze on him and had seen that he had22faith to be fmadewell,
10said with a loudvoice, "Standupright on your feet." 23And he leaped up and began to walk.
When the crowdssawwhatPaul had done, they raised their voice, saying in the 24Lycaonianlanguage, "25The gods have becomelikemen and have comedown to us."
And they began callingBarnabas, gZeus, and Paul, hHermes, because he was ithe chiefspeaker.
The priest of Zeus, whose temple was jjustoutside the city, broughtoxen and garlands to the gates, and 26wanted to offersacrifice with the crowds.
But when 27the apostlesBarnabas and Paulheard of it, they 28tore their krobes and rushed out into the crowd, crying out
and saying, "Men, why are you doingthesethings ? We are also29men of the samenature as you, and 30preach the gospel to you that you should turn from thesel31vainthings to a 32livingGod, 33WHOMADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM.
"mIn the generationsgone by He 34permittedall the nnations to 35go their own ways ;
and yet36He did not leaveHimselfwithoutwitness, in that He didgood and 37gave you rains from heaven and fruitfulseasons, osatisfying your hearts with food and gladness."
Even sayingthesethings, with difficulty they restrained the crowds from offeringsacrifice to them.
But 38Jewscame from 39Antioch and 40Iconium, and having wonover the crowds, they 41stonedPaul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead.
But while 42the disciplesstoodaround him, he got up and entered the city. The nextday he wentaway with Barnabas to 43Derbe.
After they had 44preached the gospel to that city and had 45mademanydisciples, they returned to 46Lystra and to 47Iconium and to 48Antioch,
22strengthening the souls of 49the disciples, encouraging them to continue in 50the faith, and saying, "51Throughmanytribulations we mustenter the kingdom of God."
When 52they had appointed53elders for them in everychurch, having 54prayed with fasting, they 55commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed.
They passedthrough56Pisidia and came into 57Pamphylia.
When they had spoken the word in 58Perga, they wentdown to Attalia.
From there they sailed to 59Antioch, from 60which they had been61commended to the grace of God for the work that they had paccomplished.
When they had arrived and gathered the churchtogether, they began to 62reportallthings that God had done with them and qhow He had opened a 63door of faith to the Gentiles.
And they spentra longtime with 64the disciples.
