The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass in Iconium that they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake that a great multitude of both Jews and Greeks believed. 1 At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Gentiles believed.
2 But the Jews who did not believe stirred up the minds of [those of] the nations and made [them] evil-affected against the brethren. 2 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.
3 They stayed therefore a good while, speaking boldly, [confiding] in the Lord, who gave witness to the word of his grace, giving signs and wonders to be done by their hands. 3 So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders.
4 And the multitude of the city was divided, and some were with the Jews and some with the apostles. 4 The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles.
5 And when an assault was making, both of [those of] the nations and [the] Jews with their rulers, to use [them] ill and stone them, 5 There was a plot afoot among the Gentiles and Jews, together with their leaders, to mistreat them and stone them.
6 they, being aware of it, fled to the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra and Derbe, and the surrounding country, 6 But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country,
7 and there they were announcing the glad tidings. 7 where they continued to preach the good news.
8 And a certain man in Lystra, impotent in his feet, sat, [being] lame from his mother's womb, who had never walked. 8 In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked.
9 This [man] heard Paul speaking, who, fixing his eyes on him, and seeing that he had faith to be healed, 9 He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed
10 said with a loud voice, Rise up straight upon thy feet: and he sprang up and walked. 10 and called out, "Stand up on your feet!" At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.
11 But the crowds, who saw what Paul had done, lifted up their voices in Lycaonian, saying, The gods, having made themselves like men, are come down to us. 11 When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in human form!"
12 And they called Barnabas Jupiter, and Paul Mercury, because he took the lead in speaking. 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker.
13 And the priest of Jupiter who was before the city, having brought bulls and garlands to the gates, would have done sacrifice along with the crowds. 13 The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.
14 But the apostles Barnabas and Paul, having heard [it], rent their garments, and rushed out to the crowd, crying 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting:
15 and saying, Men, why do ye these things? *We* also are men of like passions with you, preaching to you to turn from these vanities to the living God, who made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and all things in them; 15 "Men, why are you doing this? We too are only men, human like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made heaven and earth and sea and everything in them.
16 who in the past generations suffered all the nations to go in their own ways, 16 In the past, he let all nations go their own way.
17 though indeed he did not leave himself without witness, doing good, and giving to you from heaven rain and fruitful seasons, filling your hearts with food and gladness. 17 Yet he has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy."
18 And saying these things, they with difficulty kept the crowds from sacrificing to them. 18 Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them.
19 But there came Jews from Antioch and Iconium, and having persuaded the crowds and stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing him to have died. 19 Then some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead.
20 But while the disciples encircled him, he rose up and entered into the city. And on the morrow he went away with Barnabas to Derbe. 20 But after the disciples had gathered around him, he got up and went back into the city. The next day he and Barnabas left for Derbe.
21 And having announced the glad tidings to that city, and having made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, and Iconium, and Antioch, 21 They preached the good news in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch,
22 establishing the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to abide in the faith, and that through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God. 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. "We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God," they said.
23 And having chosen them elders in each assembly, having prayed with fastings, they committed them to the Lord, on whom they had believed. 23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.
24 And having passed through Pisidia they came to Pamphylia, 24 After going through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia,
25 and having spoken the word in Perga, they came down to Attalia; 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia.
26 and thence they sailed away to Antioch, whence they had been committed to the grace of God for the work which they had fulfilled. 26 From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work they had now completed.
27 And having arrived, and having brought together the assembly, they related to them all that God had done with them, and that he had opened a door of faith to the nations. 27 On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.
28 And they stayed no little time with the disciples. 28 And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.
