During this time the Holy Spirit said to them, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul to do a special work for which I have chosen them."

NCV 5 When they came to Salamis, they preached the Good News of God in the Jewish synagogues. John Mark was with them to help.

The proconsul, an intelligent man, sent for Barnabas and Saul because he wanted to hear the word of God. NCV 8 But Elymas, the magician, was against them. (Elymas is the name for Bar-Jesus in the Greek language.) He tried to stop the governor from believing in Jesus.

NIV 10 “You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord? NCV 11 Now the Lord will touch you, and you will be blind. For a time you will not be able to see anything -- not even the light from the sun." Then everything became dark for Elymas, and he walked around, trying to find someone to lead him by the hand. NIV 11 Now the hand of the Lord is against you. You are going to be blind for a time, not even able to see the light of the sun.” Immediately mist and darkness came over him, and he groped about, seeking someone to lead him by the hand.

But you refuse to listen. You are judging yourselves not worthy of having eternal life! So we will now go to the people of other nations.

Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles. NCV 47 This is what the Lord told us to do, saying: 'I have made you a light for the nations; you will show people all over the world the way to be saved.'"
