Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass in Iconium, that they did enter together into the synagogue of the Jews, and spake, so that there believed both of Jews and Greeks a great multitude; 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 and the unbelieving Jews did stir up and made evil the souls of the nations against the brethren; 2 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers.
3 long time, indeed, therefore, did they abide speaking boldly in the Lord, who is testifying to the word of His grace, and granting signs and wonders to come to pass through 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 there was a purpose both of the nations and of the Jews with their rulers to use [them] despitefully, 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 having become aware, did flee to the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra, and Derbe, and to the region 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 and there they were proclaiming good news. 7 where they continued to preach the good news.
8 And a certain man in Lystra, impotent in the feet, was sitting, being lame from the womb of his mother -- 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 this one was hearing Paul speaking, who, having stedfastly beheld him, and having seen that he hath faith to be saved, 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, `Stand up on thy feet upright;' and he was springing and walking, 10 and called out, "Stand up on your feet!" At that, the man jumped up and began to walk.
11 and the multitudes having seen what Paul did, did lift up their voice, in the speech of Lycaonia, saying, `The gods, having become like men, did come down unto 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 they were calling also Barnabas Zeus, and Paul Hermes, since he was the leader in speaking. 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker.
13 And the priest of the Zeus that is before their city, oxen and garlands unto the porches having brought, with the multitudes did wish to sacrifice, 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 and having heard, the apostles Barnabas and Paul, having rent their garments, did spring into the multitude, 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 these things do ye? and we are men like-affected with you, proclaiming good news to you, from these vanities to turn unto the living God, who made the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and all the 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 did suffer all the nations to go on in their ways, 16 In the past, he let all nations go their own way.
17 though, indeed, without witness He did not leave himself, doing good -- from heaven giving rains to us, 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 and these things saying, scarcely did they restrain the multitudes from sacrificing to them. 18 Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them.
19 And there came thither, from Antioch and Iconium, Jews, and they having persuaded the multitudes, and having stoned Paul, drew him outside of the city, having supposed 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 and the disciples having surrounded him, having risen he entered into the city, and on the morrow he went forth 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 Having proclaimed good news also to that city, and having discipled many, they turned back 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 confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting to remain in the faith, and that through many tribulations it behoveth us to enter into the reign 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 appointed to them by vote elders in every assembly, having prayed with fastings, they commended them to the Lord in 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 in Perga the word, they went down to Attalia, 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia.
26 and thence did sail to Antioch, whence they had been given by the grace of God for the work that they 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 come and gathered together the assembly, they declared as many things as God did with them, and that He did open to the nations a door of faith; 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 abode there not a little time with the disciples. 28 And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.
