Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass in Iconium that they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews and so spoke that a very great multitude both of the Jews and of the Greeks did believe. 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 unbelieving Jews stirred up and incensed the minds of the Gentiles against the brethren. 2 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.
3 A long time therefore they abode there, dealing confidently in the Lord, who gave testimony to the word of his grace, granting 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 of them indeed held with the Jews, but some with the apostles. 4 The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles.
5 And when there was an assault made by the Gentiles and the Jews with their rulers, to use them contumeliously and to 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, understanding it, fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the whole country round about: 6 But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country,
7 (14-6) and were there preaching the gospel. 7 where they continued to preach the good news.
8 (14-7) And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked. 8 In Lystra there sat a man crippled in his feet, who was lame from birth and had never walked.
9 (14-8) This same heard Paul speaking. Who looking upon 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 (14-9) Said with a loud voice: Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped up and walked. 10 and called out, "Stand up on your feet!" At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.
11 (14-10) And when the multitudes had seen what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice in the Lycaonian tongue, saying: The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. 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 (14-11) And they called Barnabas, Jupiter: but Paul, Mercury: because he was chief speaker. 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker.
13 (14-12) The priest also of Jupiter that was before the city, bringing oxen and garlands before the gate, would have offered sacrifice with the people. 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 (14-13) Which, when the apostles Barnabas and Paul had heard, rending their clothes, they leaped out among the people, crying, 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting:
15 (14-14) And saying: Ye men, why do ye these things? We also are mortals, men like unto you, preaching to you to be converted from these vain things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all things that are 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 (14-15) Who in times past, suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 16 In the past, he let all nations go their own way.
17 (14-16) Nevertheless he left not himself without testimony, doing good from heaven, giving rains and fruitful Seasons, filling our 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 (14-17) And speaking these things, they scarce restrained the people from sacrificing to them. 18 Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them.
19 (14-18) Now there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium: and, persuading the multitude and stoning Paul, drew him out of the city, thinking him to be dead. 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 (14-19) But as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up and entered into the city: and the next day he departed 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 (14-20) And when they had preached the gospel to that city and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra and to Iconium and to 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 (14-21) Confirming the souls of the disciples and exhorting them to continue 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 (14-22) And when they had ordained to them priests in every church and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, in whom they 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 (14-23) And passing through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia. 24 After going through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia,
25 (14-24) And having spoken the word of the Lord in Perge, they went down into Attalia. 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia.
26 (14-25) And thence they sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been delivered to the grace of God, unto the work which they accomplished. 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 (14-26) And when they were come and had assembled the church, they related what great things God had done with them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. 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 (14-27) And they abode no small time with the disciples. 28 And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.
