Atos 14

1 It happened and in Iconium, at the same to enter them into the synagogue of the Jews, and to speak so, that to believe of Jews and also Greeks a great multitude.

2 The but unbelieving Jews stirred up and imbittered the souls of the Gentiles against the brethren.

3 Considerable indeed then time they remained speaking freely about the Lord, that testifying to the word of the favor of himself, granting signs and prodigies to be done through the hands of them.

4 Was divided and the multitude of the city and these indeed were with the Jews, those and with the apostles.

5 As and was a rush of the Gentiles and also of Jews with the rulers of them, to insult and to stone them,

6 seeing they fled into the cities of the Lycaonia, Lystra and Derbe, and the surrounding country;

7 and there they were preaching glad tidings.

8 And a certain man in Lystra unable in the feet was sitting, lame from womb of mother of himself, who never had walked about.

9 This heard the Paul speaking; who having looked intently to him, and seeing that faith has of the to be saved,

10 said loud with the voice: Do thou stand upon the feet of the erect. And he leaped up, and walked about.

11 The and crowds, seeing what did the Paul, lifted up the voice of them, in Lycaonian language saying: The gods being like men came down to us.

12 They called and indeed Barnabas, Jupiter; the and Paul, Mercury; because he was the leader of the word.

13 The and priest of the Jupiter of that being before the city, bulls and garlands to the gates having brought, with the crowds wished to sacrifice.

14 Having heard and the apostles Barnabas and Paul, having rent the mantles of them, rushed out into the crowd, crying out,

15 and saying: Men, why these things do you? also we being like are to you men, announcing glad tidings you from these the superstitions to turn to the God the living, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all the things in them;

16 who in the having gone by generations permitted all the nations to go in the ways of themselves.

17 Although indeed not without witness himself left, doing good, from heaven to you rains giving and seasons fruitful, being full of food and of joy the hearts of you.

18 And these things saying, hardly they restrained the crowds the not to sacrifice to them.

19 Came and from Antioch and Iconium Jews; and having persuaded the crowds, and having stoned the Paul, they dragged outside of the city, supposing him to be dead.

20 Surrounding and him the disciples, having arisen entered into the city. And on the morrow he went with the Barnabas into Derbe.

21 Having preached glad tidings and the city that, and having made disciples many, they returned to the Lystra and Iconium and Antioch;

22 confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting to abide in the faith, and that through many afflictions it behooves us to enter into the kingdom of the God.

23 Having appointed and for them elders in every congregation, having prayed with fasting they commended them to the Lord, into whom they had believed.

24 And having passed through the Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia;

25 and having spoken in Perga the word, they went down into Attalia;

26 and thence they sailed into Antioch, whence they were having been commended to the favor of the God for the work, which they fulfilled.

27 Having arrived and and having assembled the congregation, they related what things did the God with them, and that he opened to the Gentiles a door of faith.

28 They remained and a time not a little with the disciples.
