Acts 14

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 multitude bothe of the Iewes, and also of the grekes beleued. Acts 14:2 But the vnbeleuynge Iewes stered vp, and vnquieted the myndes of the gentyls agaynst the brethren. Acts 14:3 Long tyme abode they there, and quyt them selues boldely with the helpe of the Lorde, which gaue testimonye vnto the worde of hys grace, & caused signes and wondres to be done by theyr handes. Acts 14:4 The people of the citie were deuyded: and parte helde with the Iewes, and parte wt the Apostles. Acts 14:5 When there was a sault made both of the gentyls, and also of the Iewes with theyr rulars, to put them to shame and to stone them, Acts 14:6 they were ware of it, and fled vnto Lystra & Darba, cities of Lycaonia, and vnto the regyon that lyeth rounde aboute, Acts 14:7 and there preached the Gospel.

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

Acts 14:8 And there sate a certayne man at Listra weake in hys fete, beyng creple from hys mothers wombe, and neuer walked. Acts 14:9 The same hearde Paule preache. Whiche behelde hym, and perceyued that he had faythe to be whole, Acts 14:10 and sayed with a loude voyce stande vpryght on the fete. And he sterte vp, & walked. Acts 14:11 And when the people sawe, what Paule had done, they lyfte vp theyr voyces, saiynge in the speache of Lycaonia: Goddes are come doune to vs in the lykenes of men. Acts 14:12 And they called Barnabas Iupiter and Paul Mercurius, because he was the preacher. Acts 14:13 Then Iupiters prieste whiche dwelte before theyr citie, brought oxen and garlandes to the churche porche, and woulde haue done sacrifice with þe people. Acts 14:14 But when the Apostles Barnabas & Paul hearde that, they rent theyr clothes, and ran in amonge the people, criynge, Acts 14:15 and saiynge: Syrs why do ye thys? We are mortall men lyke vnto you, and preache vnto you, that ye shoulde turne from these vanities vnto the liuynge God, which made heauen and earthe and the sea, and all that in them is: Acts 14:16 the whiche in tymes paste suffered all nacyons to walke in theyr owne wayes. Acts 14:17 Neuerthelesse he lefte not hym selfe without wytnes, in that he shewed hys benefytes, in geuynge vs rayne from heauen, and fruteful ceasons, fyllyng our hertes with fode and gladnes. Acts 14:18 And with these saiynges scace refrayned they the people þt they had not done sacrifyce vnto them.

Paul is stoned.

Acts 14:19 Thyther came certayne Iewes from Antioche and Iconium, and obtayned the peoples consent, and stoned Paul, and drewe him out of the citie, supposyng he had bene dead. Acts 14:20 Howbeit as the disciples stode rounde about him, he arose vp, and came into the citie. And þe next daye, he departed with Barnabas to Derba.

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

Acts 14:21 After they had preached to that citie, and had taughte manye, they returned agayne to Lystra, and to Iconium and Antioche, Acts 14:22 and strengthed the disciples soules exhortynge them to continue in the faith, affyrmyng that we must thorowe muche tribulacion enter into the kingdome of God. Acts 14:23 And when they had ordeyned them elders by election in euery congregacion, and after they had prayed and fasted, they commended them to God on whom they beleued. Acts 14:24 And they wente thorowout Pisidia and came into Pamphilia, Acts 14:25 and when they had preached the worde of God in Perga, they descended into 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 delyuered vnto the grace of god, to the worke which they had fulfylled. Acts 14:27 When they were come & had gathered the congregation together, they rehearsed all that God had done by them, and how he had opened the dore of fayth to the gentyls. Acts 14:28 And there they abode longe tyme with the discyples.
