Acts 13

CHAPTER 13

Paul and Barnabas

And there were some in Antioch, according to the [2being there 1assembly], prophets and teachers, both Barnabas and Simeon, the one called Niger, and Lucius the Cyrenian, and Manaen [2of Herod 3the 4tetrarch 1a companion], and Saul. [3officiating 1And 2of their] to the Lord, and fasting, [4said 1the 3spirit 2holy], Separate indeed to me Barnabas and Saul for the work which I have called them. Then fasting and praying, and placing the hands upon them, they dismissed them. These indeed then having gone forth by the [2spirit 1holy], went down unto Seleucia; and from there they sailed away unto Cyprus. And having come unto Salamis, they announced the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews; and they also had John as an assistant. And having gone through the island as far as Paphos, they found a certain magus, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Barjesus, which was with the proconsul Sergius Paulus, [2man 1a discerning]. This one calling on Barnabas and Saul, sought anxiously to hear the word of God.

Elymas the Magus

[5opposed 1But 6them 2Elymas 3the 4magus], (for so is translated his name,) seeking to turn aside the proconsul from the belief. And Saul, the one also called Paul, being filled [2spirit 1of holy], and having gazed at him, 10 said, O one full of all treachery, and all villainy, O son of the devil, O enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease turning aside the [2ways 3of the Lord 1straight]? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind, not seeing the sun for a time. And immediately there fell upon him a mistiness and darkness; and leading about he sought ones to guide him by hand. 12 Then [3beholding 1the 2proconsul] the thing having taken place, believed, being overwhelmed over the teaching of the Lord. 13 And having embarked from Paphos, the ones around Paul, they came unto Perga of Pamphylia. And John retreated from them and returned unto Jerusalem. 14 And they having gone through from Perga, they came into Antioch of Pisidia; and having entered into the synagogue on the day of the Sabbath, they sat. 15 And after the reading of the law and of the prophets, [3sent 1the 2chiefs of the synagogue] to them, saying, Men, brethren, if there is a word in you of comfort to the people, speak! 16 [3having risen up 1And 2Paul], and waving the hand, said, Men, Israelites, and ones fearing God, hearken! 17 The God of this people Israel chose our fathers, and [2the 3people 1exalted] in the sojourn in the land of Egypt, and with [2arm 1a high] he led them out of it. 18 And about forty years time he bore with them in the wilderness. 19 And having demolished [2nations 1seven] in the land of Canaan, he divided [3by lot 1to them 2their land]. 20 And after these things, about [4years 1four hundred 2and 3fifty], he gave judges, until Samuel the prophet. 21 And from there they asked for a king. And [2gave 3to them 1God] Saul son of Kis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin -- [2years 1for forty]. 22 And having removed him, he raised up to them David for king, to whom also [2he said 1having borne witness], I found David the one of Jesse, a man according to my heart, which shall do all my wants. 23 [5of this one 1God 2from 3the 4seed], according to the promise, raised up deliverance to Israel -- a deliverer, Jesus. 24 Which John having publicly proclaimed before the presence of his entrance, an immersion for repentance to all the people of Israel. 25 And as John was fulfilling the race, he said, Who do you suspect me to be? I am not he. But behold, comes after me, one of whom I am not worthy [2the 3sandal 4of his 5feet 1to untie]. 26 Men, brethren, sons of the race of Abraham, and the ones among you fearing God -- to you the word of this deliverance was sent. 27 For the ones dwelling in Jerusalem, and their rulers, [2this one 1not having known], nor the voices of the prophets [2on 3every 4Sabbath 1being read], [2having judged him 1they fulfilled them]. 28 And not one reason for death having found, they asked Pilate to do away with him. 29 And as they finished all the things [2concerning 3him 1being written], lowering him from the tree, they put him into a tomb. 30  But God raised him from the dead, 31 who appeared for [2days 1many] to the ones having gone up with him from Galilee unto Jerusalem, who are witnesses of him to the people. 32 And we announce you good news -- the [2to 3the 4fathers 1promise] taking place, 33 that this thing God has fulfilled [2their children 1to us], having raised up Jesus; and as in the [2Psalm 1second] it has been written, [2my son 1You are], I today have engendered you. 34 And that he raised him from the dead, no longer to be about to return unto corruption, thus he has spoken that, I will give to you the [2sacred things 3of David 1trustworthy]. 35 Wherefore also in another he says, You shall not give your sacred one to see corruption. 36 [2David 3indeed 1For 5his own 6generation 4having assisted] by the counsel of God, went to sleep, and was added to his fathers, and saw corruption. 37 But the one whom God raised, did not see corruption. 38 [2made known 3then 1Let it be] to you men, brethren, that through this one [4to you 1a release 2of sins 3is announced], 39 and from all things of which you were not able in the law of Moses to be justified, in this one every one believing is justified. 40 Take heed then, that it should not come upon you, the thing being spoken by the prophets, 41 Behold, O despisers, and wonder and vanish! For a work I work during your days, which in no way should you believe if one should tell you in detail. 42 And exiting from out of the synagogue of the Jews, [3appealed to them 1the 2nations] in the time between the Sabbath to speak to them these things. 43 [4being dismissed 1And 2the 3synagogue], [7followed 1many 2of the 3Jews 4and 5worshiping 6converts] Paul and Barnabas; who speaking, persuaded them to continue in the favor of God. 44 And on the coming Sabbath, nearly all the city gathered to hear the word of God. 45 [4beholding 1But 2the 3Jews] the multitudes, they were filled with jealousy, and spoke against the things [2by 3Paul 1being spoken], disputing and blaspheming. 46 But speaking openly, Paul and Barnabas said, To you it was important first [4to be spoken 1for the 2word 3of God]; but since you thrust it away, and do not [3worthy 1judge 2yourselves] of eternal life, behold, we turn unto the nations. 47 For thus [3has given charge 4to us 1the 2Lord], saying, I have put you for a light of nations, for you to be for deliverance unto the end of the earth. 48 And hearing, the nations rejoiced, and glorified the word of the Lord; and [7believed 1as many as 2were 3being arranged 4for 5life 6eternal]. 49 [6was carried 1And 2the 3word 4of the 5Lord] through the entire region. 50 But the Jews instigated the worshiping women, and the decent and the foremost men of the city; and they roused up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and cast them from their borders. 51 And they, having shaken off the dust of their feet against them, came unto Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy and [2spirit 1holy].
