And it came to pass in Iconium that they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake that a great multitude of both Jews and Greeks believed.
But the Jews that disobeyed stirred up the souls of the Gentiles and aggravated [them] against the brethren.
A considerable time therefore they stayed speaking boldly in reliance on the Lord that gave witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
But the multitude of the city was divided; and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.
And when an effort was made of both the Gentiles and Jews with their rulers to outrage and stone them,
becoming aware [of it] they fled unto the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra, and Derbe, and the [country] round about,
and there they were preaching the gospel.
And there sat a certain man at Lystra powerless in his feet, lame from his mother’s womb, who never had walked.
This [man] heard Paul speaking, who fastening his eyes upon him and seeing that he had faith to be made whole,
said with a loud voice, Rise upright on thy feet: and he leaped up and walked.
And the crowds seeing what Paul did, lifted up their voices in Lycaonian, saying, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.
And they called Barnabas Zeus, and Paul Hermes, because he took the lead in speaking.
And the priest of the Zeus that was before the city, having brought bulls and garlands unto the gates would have sacrificed with the crowds.
But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard [of it], they rent their garments, and sprang out unto the crowd, crying out,
and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like affections with you, preaching to you that ye should turn from these vain things unto a living God, who made the heaven and the earth, and the sea and all things in them;
who in the bygone generations suffered all the Gentiles to walk in their own ways.
And yet he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave you from heaven rains and fruitful seasons, filling your hearts with food and gladness.
And saying these things they with difficulty restrained the crowds from sacrificing to them.
But there arrived Jews from Antioch and Iconium and having persuaded the crowds and stoned Paul, they dragged [him] without the city, supposing that he was dead.
But as the disciples encircled him he rose up and entered into the city. And on the morrow he went forth with Barnabas to Derbe.
And, after preaching the gospel to that city and making many disciples, they returned unto Lystra and unto Iconium, and unto Antioch,
establishing the souls of the disciples, exhorting [them] to continue in the faith, and that through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God.
And when they chose for them elders in each assembly and prayed with fastings, they commended them to the Lord on whom they had believed.
And having passed through Pisidia they came unto Pamphylia;
and having spoken the word [of the Lord] in Perga, they went down unto Attalia;
and thence they sailed unto Antioch, whence they had been commended to the grace of God, for the work which they fulfilled.
And when they arrived and brought the assembly together, they repeated all things God had wrought with them, and how he had opened to the Gentiles a door of faith.
And they tarried no little time with the disciples.
