1It 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. 2The but unbelieving Jews stirred up and imbittered the souls of the Gentiles against the brethren. 3Considerable 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. 4Was divided and the multitude of the city and these indeed were with the Jews, those and with the apostles. 5As and was a rush of the Gentiles and also of Jews with the rulers of them, to insult and to stone them, 6seeing they fled into the cities of the Lycaonia, Lystra and Derbe, and the surrounding country; 7and there they were preaching glad tidings. 8And a certain man in Lystra unable in the feet was sitting, lame from womb of mother of himself, who never had walked about. 9This heard the Paul speaking; who having looked intently to him, and seeing that faith has of the to be saved, 10said loud with the voice: Do thou stand upon the feet of the erect. And he leaped up, and walked about. 11The 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. 12They called and indeed Barnabas, Jupiter; the and Paul, Mercury; because he was the leader of the word. 13The 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. 14Having heard and the apostles Barnabas and Paul, having rent the mantles of them, rushed out into the crowd, crying out, 15and 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; 16who in the having gone by generations permitted all the nations to go in the ways of themselves. 17Although 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. 18And these things saying, hardly they restrained the crowds the not to sacrifice to them. 19Came 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. 20Surrounding and him the disciples, having arisen entered into the city. And on the morrow he went with the Barnabas into Derbe. 21Having preached glad tidings and the city that, and having made disciples many, they returned to the Lystra and Iconium and Antioch; 22confirming 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. 23Having appointed and for them elders in every congregation, having prayed with fasting they commended them to the Lord, into whom they had believed. 24And having passed through the Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia; 25and having spoken in Perga the word, they went down into Attalia; 26and thence they sailed into Antioch, whence they were having been commended to the favor of the God for the work, which they fulfilled. 27Having 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. 28They remained and a time not a little with the disciples.
