b. To Derbe and Lystra
1 And he came also to aDerbe and to Lystra. And behold, a certain disciple named bTimothy was there, the son of a cJewish woman who was a believer, but of a Greek father;
2 He was well attested to by the abrothers in bLystra and cIconium.
3 Paul wanted this one to go forth with him; and he took him and 1acircumcised him 2because of the bJews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.
4 And as they went through the cities, they delivered to them the adecrees to keep which had been decided upon by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem.
5 And so the 1achurches were strengthened in the bfaith and cincreased in number ddaily.
