(2) Rejected by the Jews
44 And on the following Sabbath almost all the city gathered together to hear the word of God.
45 But when the aJews saw the crowds, they were filled with bjealousy and contradicted the things being spoken by Paul and cblasphemed.
46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke aboldly and said, It was necessary for the bword of God to be spoken to you cfirst. Since you thrust it away and do 1not judge yourselves dworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the eGentiles.
47 For so the Lord has commanded us, "I have set 1you as a alight of the Gentiles, that you would be for salvation unto the buttermost part of the earth.''
48 And the Gentiles, hearing this, rejoiced and glorified the word of the Lord; and as many as were 1appointed to eternal life abelieved.
49 And the word of the Lord was carried through the whole region.
50 But the Jews aincited the bwomen of high standing who cworshipped God, and the chief men of the city, and draised up a epersecution against Paul and Barnabas and fcast them out from their borders.
51 But they ashook off the dust of their feet against them and came to bIconium.
52 And the disciples were 1filled with ajoy and with the Holy Spirit.
