1 And in Iconium they went together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake that a great multitude both of the Jews and Greeks believed.

2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil-affected against the brethren.

3 Yet they abode a long time speaking boldly in the Lord, who bare witness to the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

4 But the multitude of the city was divided; and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.

5 And when there was an assault both of the Gentiles and Jews with their rulers, to use them despitefully, and to stone them, Being aware of it,

6 they fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia,

7 And preached the gospel there.

8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, having been a cripple from his mother's womb, who had never walked.

9 This man heard Paul speaking; who fixing his eyes upon him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,

10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet.

11 And he leaped and walked. But the multitude, seeing what Paul had done, lifted up their voice, saying, in the Lycaonian language, The gods are come down to us, in the likeness of men.

12 And they called Barnabas Jupiter, and Paul Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.

13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought bulls and garlands to the gates, and with the multitude, would have sacrificed.

14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard it, they rent their clothes and sprang in among the people, crying out and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things?

15 We also are men of like passions with you, and preach to you, to turn from these vanities unto the living God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are therein: Who, in times past, suffered all nations to walk in their own ways:

16 Yet he left not himself without witness,

17 in that he did good, giving rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling their hearts with food and gladness.

18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the multitude from sacrificing to them.

19 But there came thither Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the multitude, and having stoned Paul, dragged him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.

20 But as the disciples stood round about him, he rose and went into the city; and the next day, he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.

21 And having preached the gospel to that city, and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, and Iconium, and Antioch,

22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith; and that we must through many tribulations enter into the kingdom of God.

23 And when they had ordained them presbyters in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they had believed.

24 And having passed through Pisidia,

25 they came to Pamphylia, And having preached the word in Perga,

26 they went down to Attalia, And thence sailed back to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God, for the work which they had fulfilled.

27 And being come and having gathered the church together, they related all that God had done with them, and that he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.

28 And they abode there a long time with the disciples.
