OF THE APOSTLES
c. To Iconium
1 And in aIconium they entered together 1into the 2bsynagogue of the Jews and spoke in such a way that a great multitude of both Jews and Greeks believed.
2 But the Jews who were adisobedient bstirred up and ill-affected the 1minds of the Gentiles against the cbrothers.
3 Therefore they spent a considerable amount of time speaking with aboldness in the Lord, who btestified to the word of His 1cgrace by granting 2dsigns and wonders to be done through their hands.
4 But the multitude of the city was adivided, and bsome were with the Jews and some with the apostles.
5 And when a hostile attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews with their rulers to treat the apostles aoutrageously and to bstone them,
d. To Lystra and Derbe of Lycaonia
6 They became aware of it and afled to the cities of Lycaonia, bLystra and cDerbe, and the surrounding region.
7 And there they aannounced the gospel.
8 And in Lystra a certain man was sitting, without strength in his feet, alame from his mother's womb, who had never walked.
9 This man heard Paul speaking, who, looking intently at him and seeing that he had afaith to be 1healed,
10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on your feet. And he aleaped up and began to walk.
11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice, saying in Lycaonian, The agods have become like men and have come down to us.
12 And they called Barnabas, 1Zeus, and Paul, 2Hermes, since he was the one who took the lead in the discourse.
13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was before the city, brought bulls and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer a sacrifice with the crowds.
14 But when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard this, they atore their garments and rushed out into the crowd, crying out
15 And saying, 1Men, why are you doing these things? We also are amen of blike feeling as you, and cannounce the gospel to you that you should turn from these 2dvain things eto the fliving God, who gmade heaven and earth and the sea and all things in them;
16 Who in the generations agone by ballowed all the nations to go their ways.
17 And yet He did anot leave Himself without witness, in that He did good by giving you brain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling your chearts with dfood and gladness.
18 And saying these things, they restrained the crowds only with difficulty from offering sacrifices to them.
19 But aJews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having bpersuaded the crowds, they cstoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, supposing that he was dead.
20 But as the disciples surrounded him, he rose up and entered into the city. And on the next day he went out with Barnabas to aDerbe.
21 And when they had aannounced the gospel to that city and had made a considerable number of bdisciples, they returned to cLystra and to dIconium and to eAntioch,
e. Establishing the Disciples
and Appointing Elders on the Way Back
22 aEstablishing the 1souls of the disciples, exhorting them to 2bcontinue in the 3cfaith and saying that through many dtribulations we must enter into the 4ekingdom of God.
23 And when they had appointed 1aelders for them 2in every bchurch and had prayed with cfastings, they dcommitted them to the Lord into whom they had believed.
24 And they passed through Pisidia and came to aPamphylia.
25 And when they had spoken the 1word in Perga, they came down to Attalia.
f. Back to Antioch, Ending the First Journey
26 And from there they sailed away to aAntioch, where they had been commended to the 1grace of God for the work which they fulfilled.
27 And when they 1arrived and 2gathered the achurch together, they bdeclared the things that God had done with them and that He had copened a door of faith to the dGentiles.
28 And they spent no little time there with the disciples.
