2. Set Apart and Sent by the Holy Spirit
1 Now there were in aAntioch, in the local 1bchurch, 2cprophets and 3teachers: 4dBarnabas and Simeon, who was called 5Niger, and 6Lucius the Cyrenian, and 7Manaen, the foster brother of 8eHerod the tetrarch, and 9fSaul.
2 And as they were 1ministering to the Lord and fasting, the 2Holy aSpirit said, 3bSet apart for Me now Barnabas and Saul for the cwork to which I have dcalled them.
3 Then, when they had 1afasted and prayed and 2blaid their hands on them, they sent them away.
4 They then, having been sent out by the Holy 1Spirit, 2went down to Seleucia; and from there they sailed away to aCyprus.
