8While they were at Lystra, Paul and Barnabas came upon a man with crippled feet. He had been that way from birth, so he had never walked. He was sitting9and listening as Paul preached. Looking straight at him, Paul realized he had faith to be healed.10So Paul called to him in a loud voice, “Stand up!” And the man jumped to his feet and started walking.11When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in their local dialect, “These men are gods in human form!”
19Then some Jews arrived from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowds to their side. They stoned Paul and dragged him out of town, thinking he was dead.20But as the believers gathered around him, he got up and went back into the town. The next day he left with Barnabas for Derbe.21After preaching the Good News in Derbe and making many disciples, Paul and Barnabas returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch of Pisidia,22where they strengthened the believers. They encouraged them to continue in the faith, reminding them that we must suffer many hardships to enter the Kingdom of God.23Paul and Barnabas also appointed elders in every church. With prayer and fasting, they turned the elders over to the care of the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.
