Acts Chapter 14
1 And it came to pass in Iconiumthat they went both togetherinto the synagogue of the Jewsand so spakethat a greatmultitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.
2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentilesand madetheir minds evil affected against the brethren.
3 Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord which gave testimony unto the word of his graceand grantedsigns and wonders to be done by their hands.
4 But the multitude of the city was dividedand part held withthe Jewsand part with the apostles.
5 And when there was an assault made both of the Gentilesandalso of the Jews with their rulersto use them despitefully and to stone them
6 They were ware of itand fled unto Lystra and Derbecitiesof Lycaoniaand unto the region that lieth round about
7 And there they preached the gospel.
8 And there sat a certain man at Lystraimpotent in his feetbeing a cripple from his mother s wombwho never had walked
9 The same heard Paul speakwho stedfastly beholding himandperceiving that he had faith to be healed
10 Said with a loud voiceStand upright on thy feet. And heleaped and walked.
11 And when the people saw what Paul had donethey lifted uptheir voicessaying in the speech of LycaoniaThe gods arecome down to us in the likeness of men.
12 And they called BarnabasJupiterand PaulMercurius because he was the chief speaker.
13 Then the priest of Jupiterwhich was before their city brought oxen and garlands unto the gatesand would have donesacrifice with the people.
14 Which when the apostlesBarnabas and Paulheard oftheyrent their clothesand ran in among the peoplecrying out
15 And sayingSirswhy do ye these thingsWe also are men oflike passions with youand preach unto you that ye shouldturn from these vanities unto the living Godwhich madeheavenand earthand the seaand all things that aretherein
16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their ownways.
17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witnessin that hedid goodand gave us rain from heavenand fruitful seasons filling our hearts with food and gladness.
18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the peoplethatthey had not done sacrifice unto them.
19 And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconiumwho persuaded the peopleand having stoned Pauldrew him outof the citysupposing he had been dead.
20 Howbeitas the disciples stood round about himhe rose upand came into the cityand the next day he departed withBarnabas to Derbe.
21 And when they had preached the gospel to that cityand hadtaught manythey returned again to Lystraand to Iconiumand Antioch
22 Confirming the souls of the disciplesand exhorting them tocontinue in the faithand that we must through muchtribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
23 And when they had ordained them elders in every churchandhad prayed with fastingthey commended them to the Lordonwhom they believed.
24 And after they had passed throughout Pisidiathey came toPamphylia.
25 And when they had preached the word in Pergathey went downinto Attalia
26 And thence sailed to Antiochfrom whence they had beenrecommended to the grace of God for the work which theyfulfilled.
27 And when they were comeand had gathered the church togetherthey rehearsed all that God had done with themand how he hadopened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
28 And there they abode long time with the disciples.
