NASB — Acts 13 — KJV

First Missionary Journey

1 Now there were at aAntioch, in the bchurch that was [there], cprophets and dteachers: eBarnabas, and Simeon who was called Niger, and Lucius of fCyrene, and Manaen who had been brought up with gHerod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, athe Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me bBarnabas and Saul for cthe work to which I have called them.” 3 Then, when they had fasted and aprayed and blaid their hands on them, cthey sent them away.

4 ¶ So, being asent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia and from there they sailed to bCyprus. 5 When they reached Salamis, they [began] to proclaim the word of God in athe synagogues of the Jews; and they also had bJohn as their helper. 6 When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they found a amagician, a Jewish bfalse prophet whose name was Bar-Jesus, 7 who was with the aproconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the amagician (for so his name is translated) was opposing them, seeking to turn the bproconsul away from cthe faith. 9 But Saul, who was also [known as] Paul, Iafilled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze on him, 10 and said, “You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you ason of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked bthe straight ways of the Lord? 11 Now, behold, athe hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a time.” And immediately a mist and a darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking those who would lead him by the hand. 12 Then the aproconsul believed when he saw what had happened, being amazed at bthe teaching of the Lord.

13 ¶ Now Paul and his companions put out to sea from aPaphos and came to bPerga in cPamphylia; but dJohn left them and returned to Jerusalem. 14 But going on from Perga, they arrived at aPisidian bAntioch, and on cthe Sabbath day they went into dthe synagogue and sat down. 15 After athe reading of the Law and bthe Prophets cthe synagogue officials sent to them, saying, “Brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, say it.” 16 Paul stood up, and amotioning with his hand said,

¶ “Men of Israel, and byou who fear God, listen: 17 The God of this people Israel achose our fathers and Ibmade the people great during their stay in the land of Egypt, and with an uplifted arm cHe led them out from it. 18 For aa period of about forty years bHe put up with them in the wilderness. 19 aWhen He had destroyed bseven nations in the land of Canaan, He cdistributed their land as an inheritance—[all of which took] dabout four hundred and fifty years. 20 After these things He agave [them] judges until bSamuel the prophet. 21 Then they aasked for a king, and God gave them bSaul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. 22 After He had aremoved him, He raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘bI HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My Iwill.’ 23 aFrom the descendants of this man, baccording to promise, God has brought to Israel ca Savior, Jesus, 24 after aJohn had proclaimed before IHis coming a bbaptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. 25 And while John awas completing his course, bhe kept saying, ‘What do you suppose that I am? I am not [He]. But behold, one is coming after me the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie.’

26 ¶ “Brethren, sons of Abraham’s family, and those among you who fear God, to us the message of athis salvation has been sent. 27 For those who live in Jerusalem, and their arulers, brecognizing neither Him nor the Iutterances of cthe prophets which are dread every Sabbath, fulfilled [these] by condemning [Him]. 28 And though they found no ground for [putting Him to] death, they aasked Pilate that He be Iexecuted. 29 When they had acarried out all that was written concerning Him, bthey took Him down from cthe Icross and dlaid Him in a tomb. 30 But God araised Him from the dead; 31 and for many days aHe appeared to those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, the very ones who are now bHis witnesses to the people. 32 And we apreach to you the good news of bthe promise made to the fathers, 33 that God has fulfilled this [promise] Ito our children in that He araised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘bYOU ARE MY SON; TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.’ 34 [As for the fact] that He araised Him up from the dead, no longer to return to decay, He has spoken in this way: ‘bI WILL GIVE YOU THE HOLY [and] ISURE [blessings] OF DAVID.’ 35 Therefore He also says in another [Psalm], ‘aYOU WILL NOT IALLOW YOUR IIHOLY ONE TO IIIUNDERGO DECAY.’ 36 For aDavid, after he had Iserved bthe purpose of God in his own generation, cfell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and IIunderwent decay; 37 but He whom God araised did not Iundergo decay. 38 Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that athrough IHim forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, 39 and Ithrough Him aeveryone who believes is IIfreed IIIfrom all things, from which you could not be IIfreed IIIthrough the Law of Moses. 40 Therefore take heed, so that the thing spoken of ain the Prophets may not come upon [you]:

Paul Turns to the Gentiles

44 ¶ The next aSabbath nearly the whole city assembled to hear the word of Ithe Lord. 45 But when athe Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy and [began] contradicting the things spoken by Paul, and were Iblaspheming. 46 Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you afirst; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, bwe are turning to the Gentiles. 47 For so the Lord has commanded us,
  ‘aI HAVE PLACED YOU AS A bLIGHT FOR THE GENTILES,
  THAT YOU MAY IBRING SALVATION TO THE END OF THE EARTH.’”

Paul and Barnabas are chosen to go to the Gentiles.

1 ¶ Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. 3 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid [their] hands on them, they sent [them] away.

4 ¶ So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus. 5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to [their] minister. 6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name [was] Barjesus:

Of Sergius Paulus, and Elymas the sorcerer.

7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. 9 Then Saul, (who also [is called] Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, [thou] child of the devil, [thou] enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord [is] upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord. 13 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.

Paul preacheth at Antioch, that Jesus is Chist.

14 ¶ But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down. 15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, [Ye] men [and] brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on. 16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with [his] hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience. 17 The God of this people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought he them out of it. 18 And about the time of forty years suffered he their manners in the wilderness. 19 And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land to them by lot. 20 And after that he gave [unto them] judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet. 21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years. 22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the [son] of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will. 23 Of this man's seed hath God according to [his] promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus: 24 When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. 25 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not [he]. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of [his] feet I am not worthy to loose. 26 Men [and] brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent. 27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled [them] in condemning [him]. 28 And though they found no cause of death [in him], yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain. 29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took [him] down from the tree, and laid [him] in a sepulchre. 30 But God raised him from the dead: 31 And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people. 32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. 34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, [now] no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David. 35 Wherefore he saith also in another [psalm], Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: 37 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.

The Gentiles believe:

42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. 43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.

45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.

whereupon they turn to the Gentiles.

46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, [saying], I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.

As many as were ordained to live believed.

48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. 49 And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region. 50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts. 51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.
