36 Now after some days Paul said to Barnabas, Let us return now and visit the brothers in aevery city in which we announced the word of the Lord, and see how they are doing.
37 And Barnabas intended to take aJohn, who is called Mark, along with them also;
38 But Paul did not consider it suitable to take with them this one who awithdrew from them in Pamphylia and did not go with them to the work.
39 And there was a 1sharp contention, so that they separated from each other; and Barnabas, taking Mark along, sailed away to aCyprus.
40 But Paul chose aSilas and 1went out, having been commended to the bgrace of the Lord by the brothers.
41 And he passed through aSyria and Cilicia, bconfirming the cchurches.
