Paul and Barnabas are chosen to go to the Gentiles.
Acts 13:1 There were at Antioche in the congregacion certayne Prophetes and teachers: as Barnabas and Simon called Niger and Lucius of Cerene and Manahen Herode the Tetrarkes norsfelowe and Saul. Acts 13:2 As they mynistred to the Lorde and fasted the holy goost sayde: separate me Barnabas and Saul for ye worke where vnto I have called them. Acts 13:3 Then fasted they and prayed and put their hondes on them and let them goo.
Acts 13:4 And they after they were sent of the holy goost came vnto Seleutia and from thence they sayled to Cyprus. Acts 13:5 And when they were come to Salamine they shewed ye worde of God in ye synagoges of ye Iewes. And they had Iohn to their minister. Acts 13:6 When they had gone thorowout ye yle vnto ye cite of Paphos they foude a certayne sorserer a falce prophet which was a Iewe named Bariesu
Of Sergius Paulus, and Elymas the sorcerer.
Acts 13:7 which was with ye ruler of the countre won Sergius Paulus a prudet man. The same ruler called vnto him Barnabas and Saul and desyred to heare the worde of God. Acts 13:8 But Elemas the sorcerar (for so was his name by interpretacion) wt stode them and sought to turne awaye the ruler fro the fayth. Acts 13:9 Then Saul which also is called Paul beinge full of the holy goost set his eyes on him Acts 13:10 and sayde: O full of all sutteltie and disseytfulnes the chylde of the devyll and ye enemye of all righteousnes thou ceasest not to pervert the strayght wayes of the Lorde. Acts 13:11 And now beholde the honde of the Lorde is vpon the and thou shalt be blinde and not se the sunne for a season. And immediatly ther fell on him a myste and a darcknes and he went aboute sekinge them that shuld leade him by the honde. Acts 13:12 Then the rular when he sawe what had happened beleved and wodred at the doctryne of the Lorde. Acts 13:13 When they that were with Paule were departed by shyppe fro Paphus they cam to Perga a cite of Pamphilia: and there Iohn departed from them and returned to Ierusalem.
Paul preacheth at Antioch, that Jesus is Chist.
Acts 13:14 But they wandred thorowe the countres fro Perga to Antioche a cite of the coutre of Pisidia and wet in to the synagoge on the saboth daye and sate doune. Acts 13:15 And after the lawe and ye Prophetes were redde ye rulers of the synagoge sent vnto them sayinge: Ye men and brethren yf ye have eny sermo to exhorte ye people saye on. Acts 13:16 Then Paul stode vp and beckened with the honde and sayde: Men of Israel and ye that feare God geve audiece. Acts 13:17 The God of this people chose oure fathers and exalted the people whe they dwelt as straugers in ye londe of Egypt and with a mighty arme brought them oute of it Acts 13:18 and aboute the tyme of .xl. yeares suffred he their maners in the wyldernes. Acts 13:19 And he destroyed. vii nacios in the londe of Canaan and devided their londe to them by lot. Acts 13:20 And after warde he gave vnto them iudges aboute the space of .iiii.C. and .l. yeres vnto the tyme of Samuel ye Prophet. Acts 13:21 And after that they desyred a kinge and God gave vnto them Saul the sonne of Cis a man of the tribe of Beniamin by the space of .xl. yeres. Acts 13:22 And after he had put him doune he set vp David to be their kynge of whome he reported sayinge: I have founde David the sonne of Iesse a man after myne awne hert he shall fulfill all my will. Acts 13:23 Of this manes seed hath God (accordinge to his promes) brought forth to the people of Israel a saviour one Iesus Acts 13:24 when Iohn had fyrst preached before his cominge the baptyme of repentauce to Israel. Acts 13:25 And when Iohn had fulfylled his course he sayde: whome ye thinke that I am the same am I not. But beholde ther cometh one after me whose shewes of his fete I am not worthy to lowse. Acts 13:26 Ye men and brethren chyldren of the generacion of Abraham and whosoever amoge you feareth God to you is this worde of salvacio sent. Acts 13:27 The inhabiters of Ierusalem and their rulers because they knewe him not nor yet the voyces of the Prophetes which are redde every Saboth daye they have fulfilled them in condepninge him. Acts 13:28 And when they founde no cause of deeth in him yet desyred they Pylate to kyll him. Acts 13:29 And when they had fulfilled all that were written of him they toke him doune from the tree and put him in a sepulcre. Acts 13:30 But God raysed him agayne from deeth Acts 13:31 and he was sene many dayes of them which came wt him fro Galile to Ierusalem. Which are his witnesses vnto the people. Acts 13:32 And we declare vnto you how that ye promes made vnto the fathers Acts 13:33 God hath fulfilled vnto vs their chyldre in that he reysed vp Iesus agayne eve as it is written in the fyrste psalme: Thou arte my sonne this same daye begat I the. Acts 13:34 As concernynge that he reysed him vp from deeth now no more to returne to corrupcion he sayde on this wyse: The holy promyses made to David I will geve them faithfully to you. Acts 13:35 Wherfore he saith also in another place: Thou shalt not soffre thyne holye to se corrupcion. Acts 13:36 Howbe it David after he had in his tyme fulfilled the will of God he slepte and was layde with his fathers and sawe corrupcion. Acts 13:37 But he whom God reysed agayne sawe no corrupcion.
Acts 13:38 Be it knowne vnto you therfore ye men and brethre that thorow this man is preached vnto you the forgevenes of synnes Acts 13:39 and yt by him are all yt beleve iustified fro all thinges fro the which ye coulde not be iustified by ye lawe of Moses. Acts 13:40 Beware therfore lest that fall on you which is spoken of in the Prophetes: Acts 13:41 Beholde ye despisers and wonder and perishe ye: for I do aworke in youre dayes which ye shall not beleve yf a ma wolde declare it you.
The Gentiles believe:
Acts 13:42 When they were come out of the Synagoge of the Iewes the getyls besought yt they wolde preache the worde to them bitwene the Saboth dayes. Acts 13:43 When the congregacion was broken vp many of the Iewes and verteous covertes folowed Paul and Barnabas which spake to them and exhorted them to cotinue in the grace of God.
Acts 13:44 And ye nexte Saboth daye came almoste the whole cite to gether to heare the worde of God.
but the Jews gainsay and blaspheme:
Acts 13:45 When ye Iewes sawe the people they were full of indignacion and spake agaynst those thinges which were spoken of Paul spekinge agaynst it and raylinge on it.
whereupon they turn to the Gentiles.
Acts 13:46 Then Paul and Barnabas wexed bolde and sayde: it was mete that the worde of God shulde fyrst have bene preached to you. But seinge ye put it from you and thinke youre selfes onworthy of everlastinge lyfe: lo we turne to the gentyls. Acts 13:47 For so hath the Lorde comaunded vs: I have made ye a light to the getyls yt thou be salvacio vnto ye ende of ye worlde.
As many as were ordained to live believed.
Acts 13:48 The getyls hearde and were glad and glorified the worde of ye Lorde and beleved: eve as many as were ordeyned vnto eternall lyfe. Acts 13:49 And ye worde of the Lorde was publisshed thorowe oute all the region. Acts 13:50 But the Iewes moved ye worshypfull and honorable wemen and the chefe men of the cyte and reysed persecucio agaynst Paul and Barnabas and expelled them oute of their costes. Acts 13:51 And they shouke of ye duste of their fete agaynst them and came vnto Iconiu. Acts 13:52 And the disciples were filled with ioye and with the holy goost.
