NASB — Acts 14 — KJV

Acceptance and Opposition

1 In aIconium bthey entered the synagogue of the Jews together, and spoke in such a manner cthat a large number of people believed, both of Jews and of dGreeks. 2 But athe Jews who Ibdisbelieved stirred up the IIminds of the Gentiles and embittered them against cthe brethren. 3 Therefore they spent a long time [there] aspeaking boldly [with reliance] upon the Lord, who was testifying to the word of His grace, granting that Ibsigns and wonders be done by their hands. 4 aBut the Ipeople of the city were divided; and some IIsided with bthe Jews, and some with cthe apostles. 5 And when an attempt was made by both the Gentiles and athe Jews with their rulers, to mistreat and to bstone them, 6 they became aware of it and fled to the cities of aLycaonia, bLystra and cDerbe, and the surrounding region; 7 and there they continued to apreach the gospel.

8 ¶ At aLystra ba man was sitting who had no strength in his feet, lame from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. 9 This man was listening to Paul as he spoke, who, awhen he had fixed his gaze on him and had seen that he had bfaith to be Imade well, 10 said with a loud voice, “Stand upright on your feet.” aAnd he leaped up and [began] to walk. 11 When the crowds saw what Paul had done, they raised their voice, saying in the aLycaonian language, “bThe gods have become like men and have come down to us.” 12 And they [began] calling Barnabas, IZeus, and Paul, IIHermes, because he was IIIthe chief speaker. 13 The priest of Zeus, whose [temple] was Ijust outside the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates, and awanted to offer sacrifice with the crowds. 14 But when athe apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they btore their Irobes and rushed out into the crowd, crying out 15 and saying, “Men, why are you doing these things? We are also amen of the same nature as you, and bpreach the gospel to you that you should turn from these Icvain things to a dliving God, eWHO MADE THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH AND THE SEA AND ALL THAT IS IN THEM. 16 IIn the generations gone by He apermitted all the IInations to bgo their own ways; 17 and yet aHe did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and bgave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, Isatisfying your hearts with food and gladness.” 18 [Even] saying these things, with difficulty they restrained the crowds from offering sacrifice to them.

19 ¶ But aJews came from bAntioch and cIconium, and having won over the crowds, they dstoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be dead. 20 But while athe disciples stood around him, he got up and entered the city.

Paul and Barnabas are persecuted from Iconium.

1 ¶ 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. 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil affected against the brethren. 3 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. 4 But the multitude of the city was divided: and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles. 5 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, 6 They were ware of [it], and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about: 7 And there they preached the gospel.

At Lystra Paul healeth a cripple, whereupon they are reputed as gods.

8 ¶ And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked: 9 The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, 10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. 11 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. 12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker. 13 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. 14 [Which] when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard [of], they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, 15 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: 16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 17 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. 18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.

Paul is stoned.

19 ¶ 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. 20 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.

They pass through divers churches, confirming the disciples in faith and patience.

21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and [to] Iconium, and Antioch, 22 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. 23 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. 24 And after they had passed throughout Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia. 25 And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia:
