Acts 131 Were and some in Antioch in the being congregation prophets and teachers, the both Barnabas and Simon that being called Black, and Lucius the Cyrenian, Manaen also, of Herod the tetrarch a foster brother, and Saul. 2 Serving and of them the Lord and fasting, said the spirit the holy: Separate you indeed for me the Barnabas and the Saul for the work, which I have called them. 3 Then having fasted and having prayed, and having laid the hands to them, they sent forth. 4 These indeed then having been sent forth by the spirit the holy, went down into the Seleucia, thence and sailed into the Cyprus. 5 And having arrived in Salamis, they announced the word of the God in the synagogues of the Jews; they had and also John an attendant. 6 Having gone through and whole the island to Paphos, they found a certain magian, a false prophet a Jew, to whom a name Bar-Jesus, 7 who was with the proconsul Sergius Paulus, a man intelligent. This having summoned Barnabas and Saul, desired to hear the word of the God. 8 Stood against but them Elymas the magian, (thus for it translated the name of him,) seeking to turn away the proconsul from the faith. 9 Saul but (he also Paul) being filled of spirit holy, and having looked earnestly on him, 10 said: O full of all deceit and of all ready working, O son of an accuser, enemy of all righteousness, not wilt thou cease perverting the ways of Lord the straight? 11 And now lo, a hand of Lord on thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun till a season. Immediately and fell on him a mist and darkness; and going about he sought guides. 12 Then seeing the proconsul that having been done, believed, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord. 13 Having set sail and from the Paphos those about the Paul, came into Perga of the Pamphylia. John but, having gone away from them, returned into Jerusalem. 14 They and having passed through from the Perga went to Antioch of the Pisidia, and having entered into the synagogue in the day of the sabbaths, they sat down. 15 After and the reading of the law and the prophets, sent the synagogue-rulers to them, saying: Men brethren, if is a word in you of consolation to the people, say you. 16 Having stood up and Paul, and having waved the hand, said: Men Israelites, and those fearing the God, hear you. 17 The God of the people this chose the fathers of you; and the people exalted in the sojourning in land of Egypt, and with an arm lifted up be brought them out of her; 18 and about forty years time he nourished them in the desert; 19 and having cast out nations seven in land of Canaan, he distributed by lot to them the land of them. 20 And after these things about years four hundred and fifty he gave judges, till Samuel the prophet. 21 And then they asked for a king, and gave to them the God the Saul son of Kish, a man of tribe of Benjamin, years forty. 22 And having removed him, he raised up to them the David for a king, to whom also he said having testified: I found David, that of the Jesse, a man according to the heart of me, who will do all the will of me. 23 This the God from the seed according to promise brought forth to the Israel a savior Jesus, 24 having announced before of John before face of the entrance of him a dipping of reformation to all the people Israel. 25 As and was fulfilling the John the race, he said: Who me do you suppose to be? not am I, but lo, comes after me, of whom not I am worthy the sandal of the feet to loose. 26 Men brethren, sons race of Abraham, and those among you fearing the God, to you the word of the salvation this is sent. 27 Those for dwelling in Jerusalem, and the rulers of them, him not knowing, and the voices of the prophets those in every sabbath being read, judging fulfilled. 28 And no one cause of death having found, they asked Pilate to kill him. 29 When and they finished all the things concerning him having been written, having taken down from the cross, they placed in a tomb. 30 The but God raised him out of dead ones, 31 who appeared on days many to those having gone up with him from of the Galilee into Jerusalem, who are witnesses of him to the people. 32 And we you address with glad tidings that to the fathers promise having been made, that this the God has fulfilled to the children of them to us, having raised up Jesus; 33 as also in the first psalm it is written: A son of me art thou, I to-day have begotten thee. 34 Because and he raised him out of dead ones, no more being about to return to corruption, thus he said: That I will give to you the holy things of David the faithful. 35 Therefore also in another he says: Not thou wilt permit the holy one of thee to see corruption. 36 David indeed for own generation having served by the of the God will fell asleep, and was laid with the fathers of himself and saw corruption; 37 whom but the God raised up, not saw corruption. 38 Know therefore let it be to you, men brethren, that through this to you forgiveness of sins is announced; 39 and from all things, which not you are able by the law of Moses to be justified in him every one the believing is justified. 40 See then, not may come upon you that having been spoken by the prophets; 41 behold you the despisers, and wonder you, and disappear you; because a work I work in the days of you, a work, which not not you would believe, if one should narrate to you. 42 Having gone out and of them, they desired on the next sabbath to be spoken to them the words these. 43 Being broken up and the synagogue, followed many of the Jews and of the worshiping proselytes the Paul and the Barnabas; who speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the favor of the God. 44 On the and coming sabbath, almost all the city came together to hear the word of the God. 45 Seeing and the Jews the crowds, they were filled of zeal, and spoke against the things by the Paul being spoken, contradicting and blaspheming. 46 Speaking freely and the Paul and the Barnabas said: To you it was necessary first to be spoken the word of the God; since but you trust away him, and not worthy judge yourselves of the age-lasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 Thus for has commanded us the Lord: I have set thee for a light of nations, the to be thee for salvation to end of the earth. 48 Having heard and the Gentiles rejoiced, and glorified the word of the Lord; and believed as many as were having been disposed for life age-lasting. 49 Was published and the word of the Lord through whole of the country. 50 The but Jews stirred up the religious women the honorable, and the chiefs of the city, and raised a persecution against the Paul and the Barnabas, and cast out them from the borders of them. 51 They but having shaken off the dust of the feet of them against them, came into Iconium. 52 The and disciples were filled joy and spirit holy.
