044:014:001
And it came to pass in Iconium,
that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews,
and so spake,
that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.


044:014:002
But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles,
and made their minds evil affected against the brethren.


044:014:003
Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord,
which gave testimony unto the word of his grace,
and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.


044:014:004
But the multitude of the city was divided:
and part held with the Jews,
and part with the apostles.


044:014:005
And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles,
and also of the Jews with their rulers,
to use them despitefully,
and to stone them,


044:014:006
They were ware of it,
and fled unto Lystra and Derbe,
cities of Lycaonia,
and unto the region that lieth round about:


044:014:007
And there they preached the gospel.


044:014:008
And there sat a certain man at Lystra,
impotent in his feet,
being a cripple from his mother's womb,
who never had walked:


044:014:009
The same heard Paul speak:
who stedfastly beholding him,
and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,


044:014:010
Said with a loud voice,
Stand upright on thy feet.
And he leaped and walked.


044:014:011
And when the people saw what Paul had done,
they lifted up their voices,
saying in the speech of Lycaonia,
The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.


044:014:012
And they called Barnabas,
Jupiter;
and Paul,
Mercurius,
because he was the chief speaker.


044:014:013
Then the priest of Jupiter,
which was before their city,
brought oxen and garlands unto the gates,
and would have done sacrifice with the people.


044:014:014
Which when the apostles,
Barnabas and Paul,
heard of,
they rent their clothes,
and ran in among the people,
crying out,


044:014:015
And saying,
Sirs,
why do ye these things?
We also are men of like passions with you,
and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God,
which made heaven,
and earth,
and the sea,
and all things that are therein:


044:014:016
Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.


044:014:017
Nevertheless he left not himself without witness,
in that he did good,
and gave us rain from heaven,
and fruitful seasons,
filling our hearts with food and gladness.


044:014:018
And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people,
that they had not done sacrifice unto them.


044:014:019
And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium,
who persuaded the people,
and having stoned Paul,
drew him out of the city,
supposing he had been dead.


044:014:020
Howbeit,
as the disciples stood round about him,
he rose up,
and came into the city:
and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.


044:014:021
And when they had preached the gospel to that city,
and had taught many,
they returned again to Lystra,
and to Iconium,
and Antioch,


044:014:022
Confirming the souls of the disciples,
and exhorting them to continue in the faith,
and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.


044:014:023
And when they had ordained them elders in every church,
and had prayed with fasting,
they commended them to the Lord,
on whom they believed.


044:014:024
And after they had passed throughout Pisidia,
they came to Pamphylia.


044:014:025
And when they had preached the word in Perga,
they went down into Attalia:


044:014:026
And thence sailed to Antioch,
from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled.


044:014:027
And when they were come,
and had gathered the church together,
they rehearsed all that God had done with them,
and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.


044:014:028
And there they abode long time with the disciples.
