Acts 14

ASV 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 both of Jews and of Greeks believed. NIV 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 Greeks believed. ASV 2 But the Jews that were disobedient stirred up the souls of the Gentiles, and made them evil affected against the brethren. NIV 2 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the other Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. ASV 3 Long time therefore they tarried [there] speaking boldly in the Lord, who bare witness unto the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. NIV 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 perform signs and wonders. ASV 4 But the multitude of the city was divided; and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles. NIV 4 The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles. ASV 5 And when there was made an onset both of the Gentiles and of the Jews with their rulers, to treat them shamefully and to stone them, NIV 5 There was a plot afoot among both Gentiles and Jews, together with their leaders, to mistreat them and stone them. ASV 6 they became aware of it, and fled unto the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra and Derbe, and the region round about: NIV 6 But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country, ASV 7 and there they preached the gospel. NIV 7 where they continued to preach the gospel. ASV 8 And at Lystra there sat a certain man, impotent in his feet, a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked. NIV 8 In Lystra there sat a man who was lame. He had been that way from birth and had never walked. ASV 9 The same heard Paul speaking, who, fastening eyes upon him, and seeing that he had faith to be made whole, NIV 9 He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed ASV 10 said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped up and walked. NIV 10 and called out, “Stand up on your feet!” At that, the man jumped up and began to walk. ASV 11 And when the multitude saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. NIV 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!” ASV 12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercury, because he was the chief speaker. NIV 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker. ASV 13 And the priest of Jupiter whose [temple] was before the city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the multitudes. NIV 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. ASV 14 But when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of it, they rent their garments, and sprang forth among the multitude, crying out NIV 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting: ASV 15 and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and bring you good tidings, that ye should turn from these vain things unto a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that in them is: NIV 15 “Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them. ASV 16 who in the generations gone by suffered all the nations to walk in their own ways. NIV 16 In the past, he let all nations go their own way. ASV 17 And yet He left not himself without witness, in that he did good and gave you from heaven rains and fruitful seasons, filling your hearts with food and gladness. NIV 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.” ASV 18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the multitudes from doing sacrifice unto them. NIV 18 Even with these words, they had difficulty keeping the crowd from sacrificing to them. ASV 19 But there came Jews thither from Antioch and Iconium: and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul, and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. NIV 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. ASV 20 But as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and entered into the city: and on the morrow he went forth with Barnabas to Derbe. NIV 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. ASV 21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, and to Iconium, and to Antioch, NIV 21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, ASV 22 confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God. NIV 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. ASV 23 And when they had appointed for them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they had believed. NIV 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. ASV 24 And they passed through Pisidia, and came to Pamphylia. NIV 24 After going through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia, ASV 25 And when they had spoken the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia; NIV 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia. ASV 26 and thence they sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been committed to the grace of God for the work which they had fulfilled. NIV 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. ASV 27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all things that God had done with them, and that he had opened a door of faith unto the Gentiles. NIV 27 On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. ASV 28 And they tarried no little time with the disciples. NIV 28 And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.
