Paul and Barnabas are persecuted from Iconium.
Acts 14:1 And it fortuned in Iconium, that they went both together into þe synagoge of the Iewes, and so spake, that a greate multytude both of the Iewes and also of þe Grekes beleued. Acts 14:2 But þe vnbeleuyng Iewes, steryd vp, and vnquieted the myndes of the gentyls agaynste the brethren. Acts 14:3 Longe tyme abode they there, and quyt them selues boldly with the helpe of the Lord, which gaue testimony vnto the worde of his grace, & graunted sygnes and wondres to be done by their handes. Acts 14:4 But the multitude of the cytie was deuyded: and parte helde with the Iewes, & parte with the Apostles. Acts 14:5 When ther was an assaute made both of the Gentyles & also of the Iewes with their rulers, to do them violence, and to stone them Acts 14:6 they were ware of it, and fled vnto Lystra and Derba, cyties of Lycaonia, and vnto the regyon that lyeth ronnde aboute, Acts 14:7 and there preached the Gospell.
At Lystra Paul healeth a cripple, whereupon they are reputed as gods.
Acts 14:8 And ther sate a certayne man at Lystra weake in hys fete, beynge creple from his mothers wombe, and neuer had walked. Acts 14:9 The same hearde Paul preache. Which beholdynge hym, and perceauynge that he had fayth to be whole, Acts 14:10 sayd with a loude voyce: stande vpryght on thy fete: And he stert vp, and walked. Acts 14:11 And when the people sawe what Paul had done, they lyfte vp their voyces, sayinge in the speache of Lycaonia: Goddes are come downe to vs in the lyknes of men. Acts 14:12 And they called Barnabas Iupiter, and Paul Mercurius, because he was the preacher, Acts 14:13 Then Iupiters preste, which dwelt before their cytie, brought oxen and garlandes vnto the porche, and wolde haue done sacryfice with the people. Acts 14:14 Which when the Apostles, Barnabas and Paul herde of, they rent their clothes, and ran in amonge the people, cryinge Acts 14:15 and sayinge: syrs why do ye this? We are mortall men like vnto you, and preache vnto you, that ye shulde turne from these vanyties vnto the lyuinge God, which made heauen and erth and the see and all thynges that are ther in: Acts 14:16 the which in tymes past suffred all nacyons to walcke in theyr awne wayes. Acts 14:17 Neuerthelesse, he left not hym selfe withoute wytnes, in that he shewed hys beuefytes from heauen, in geuynge vs rayne and frutefull ceasons, fyllyng oure hertes with fode and gladnes. Acts 14:18 And with these sayinges, sease refrayned they the people, that they had not done sacryfyce vnto them.
Paul is stoned.
Acts 14:19 Thyther came certayne Iewes from Antioche and Iconium: which (whan they had obtayned the peoples consent and had stoned Paul) drew him out of the cytie, suppoge he had bene deed. Acts 14:20 Howbeit as þe disciples stode rounde about him, he arose vp, and came into the cytie. And the nexte daye he departed with Barnabas to Derba.
They pass through divers churches, confirming the disciples in faith and patience.
Acts 14:21 And whan they had preached to that cytie, & had taught many, they returned agayne to Lystra, and to Iconium and Antioche, Acts 14:22 and strengthed þe discyples soules agayne, and exhorted them to contynue in the fayth affirmynge that we must thorowe moche tribulacyon enntre into the kyngdome of God. Acts 14:23 And whan they had ordened them elders by eleccyon in euery congregacyon, and had prayde and fasted, they commended them to the Lorde on whom they beleued. Acts 14:24 And whan they had gone thorowe out Pisidia, they came to Pamphilia, Acts 14:25 & whan they had preached the worde in Perga, they descended into the cyte Attalia,
Returning to Antioch, they report what God had done with them.
Acts 14:26 and thence departed by shyppe to Antioche from whence they were committed vnto the grace of God to þe worcke which they fulfylled. Acts 14:27 When they were come, and had gathered the congregacion together, they rehersed all that God had doue by them and how he had opened the dore of fayth vnto the Gentyls. Acts 14:28 And there they abode longe tyme with the discyples.
