11 And behold, immediately there were
three men already come unto the house where
I was, sent from Cesarea unto me.

The gospel preached at Antioch.

12 And ""the Spirit bade me go with them,
nothing doubting. Moreover, s^ these six bre-
thren accompanied me, and we entered into
the man's house :

13 '•And he shewed us how he had seen
an angel in his house, which stood and said
unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for
Simon, whose surname is Peter ;

14 Who shall tell thee words, whereby
thou and all thy house shall be saved.

15 And as I began to speak, the Holy
Ghost fell on them, 'as on us at the be-
ginning.

16 Then remembered I the word of the
Lord, how that he said, ''John indeed bap-
tized with water ; but ' ye shall be baptized
with the Holy Ghost.

17 ■" Forasmuch then as God gave them
the like gift as he did unto us, who believed
on the Lord Jesus Christ, " what was I, that

I could v/ithstand God ?

18 When they heard these things, they
held their peace, and glorified God, saying,
"Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted
repentance unto life.

V 19 Up Now they which were scattered
abroad upon the persecution that arose about
Stephen, travelled as far as Phenice, and
Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to
none but unto the Jews only.

20 And some of them were men of Cyprus
and Cyrene, which when they were come to
Antioch, spake unto ithe Grecians, preach-
ing the Lord Jesus.

21 And 'the hand of the Lord was with
them : and a great number believed, and
'turned unto the Lord.

22 IT Then tidings of these things came
unto the ears of the church which was in
Jerusalem : and they sent forth ' Barnabas,
that he should go as far as Antioch.

23 Who, when he came, and had seen the
■grace of God, was glad, and " exhorted them
all, that with purpose of heart they would
cleave unto the Lord.

24 For he was a good man, and ^ full of
the Holy Ghost, and of faith : y and much
people was added unto the Lord.

25 Then departed Barnabas to ^ Tarsus,
for to seek Saul :

26 And when he had found him, he brought
him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that
a whole year they assembled themselves

II with the church, and taught much people.
And the disciples were called Christians
first in Antioch.

27 IF And in these days came "prophets
from Jerusalem unto Antioch.

28 And there stood up one of them named
•"Agabus, and signified by the Spirit, that

Herod persccuteth the Christians.

there should be great dearth throughout all
the world : which came to pass in the days
of Claudius Cesar.

29 Then the disciples, every man accord-
ing to his ability, determined to send "relief
unto the brethren which dwelt in Judea.

30 ''Which also they did, and sent it to
the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

CHAP, Xli. ^

I King Herod persecuteth the Christiam, killeth James,
and imprisoneth Peter ; whom, art 'angel delivereth
upon the prayers oftheChurch, 20 In his pride taking
to himself the honour due to- God, he is stricken hy an
angel, and dieth miserably, 24 After his death, the
word of God prospereth.

"OW about that time, Herod the king,
_ II stre'tched forth his hands to vex cer-
tain of the church.

2 And he killed James ''the brother of
John with the sword.

3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews,
he proceeded further to take Peter also.
Then were ''the days of unleavened bread.

4 And <^when he had apprehended him,
he put him in prison, and delivered him to
four quaternions of soldiers to keep him ;
intending after Easter to bring him forth to
the people.

5 Peter therefore was kept in prison : but

II prayer was made without ceasing of the
Church unto God for him.

6 And when Herod would have brought
him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping
between two soldiers, bound with two chains ;
and the keepers before the door kept the
prison.

7 And behold, ''the angel of the Lord came
upon him, and a light shined in the prison ;
and he smote Peter on the side, and raised
him up, saying. Arise up quickly. And his
chains fell off from 7ms hands.

k 8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thy-
self, and bind on thy sandals: and so he did.
x\nd he saith unto him. Cast thy garment
about thee, and follow me.

9 And he went out, and followed him,
and *wist not that it was true which was
done by the angel; but thought ''he saw a
vision.

10 When they were past the first and the
second ward, they came unto the iron gate
that leadeth unto the city ; e which opened
to them of his own accord : and they went
out, and passed on through one street ; and
forthwith the angel departed from him.

11 And when Peter was come to himself,
he said, Now I know of a surety, that '' the-
Lord hath sent his angel, and 'hath delivered
me out of the hand of Herod, and from all
the expectation of the people of the Jews.

920



His miserable end.

12 And when he had considered the thing,
''he came to the house of Mary the mother
of 'John, whose surname was Mark; where
many were gathered together, ""praying.

13 And as Peter knocked at the door of
the gate, a damsel came || to hearken, named
Rhoda.

14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she
opened not the' gate for gladness, but ran in,
and told how Peter stood before the gate.

15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad.
But she constantly affirmed that it was even
so. Then said they, "It is his angel.

16 But Peter continued knocking. And
when they had opened the door, and saw him,
they were astonished.

17 But he "beckoning unto them with the
hand to hold their peace, declared unto them
how the Lord had brought him out of the
prison. And he said. Go shew these things
unto James, and to the brethren. And he
departed, and went into another place.

18 Now as soon as it was day, there was
no small stir among the soldiers, what was
become of Peter.

19 And when Herod had sought for" him,
and found him not, he examined the keepers,
and commanded that they should be put to
death. And he went down from Judea to
Cesarea, and there abode.

^ 20 H And Herod || was highly displeased
with them of Tyre and Sidon. But they
came with one accord to him, and having
made Blastus fthe king's chamberlain their
friend, desired peace, because p their country
tvas nourished by the king's country.

21 And upon a set day, Herod arrayed in
royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made
an oration unto them.

22 And the people gave a shout, saying,
It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.

23 And immediately the angel of the Lord
•J smote him, because "^he gave not God the
glory : and he was eaten of worms, and gave
up the ghost.

24 IT But nhe word of God grew and mul-
tiplied.

.25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from
Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their
II ministry, and Hook with them "John, whose
surname was Mark.

Barnabas and Saul are sent forth.

called Niger, and "= Lucius of C'yrene, and
Manaen, || which had been brought up with
rierod 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 U So they being sent forth by the Holy
Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from
thence they sailed to s Cyprus.

5 And when they were at Salamis, '' they
preached the word of God iaWie 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 sor-
cerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name
was Bar-jesus :

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, seek-
ing 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, "i^ow child of the devil, thou enemy
of all righteousness, wilt thou not xease to
pervert the right ways of the Lord ?

11 And now behold, "the hand of the
Lord is upon theCj and thou shalt be blind,
not seeing the sun for a season. And imme-
diately there fell on himi a mist 'and a dark-
ness; and he went about seeking some 40
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 p John departing from them,
returned to Jerusalem.

14 IT 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

921



Paul preacheth at Antioch,

17 The God of this people of Israel ^ chose
our fathers, and exalted the people ywhen
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
t suffered he their manners in the wilder-
ness.

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 f 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 g 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 nian's seed hath God, accord-
ing "to his promise, raised unto Israel "a
Saviour, Jesus.:

24 ° When John had first preached, be-
fore 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 mid brethren, children of the
stock of Abraham, and whosoever among
you feareth God, i to you Is the word of this
salvation sent.

21 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and
their' rulers, "^ because they knew him not,
noryetthe 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 y 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 se-
cond 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, si will give
you the sure f 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.

38 H Be it known unto you therefore, men
and brethren, that . ^ through this man is
preached unto you the forgiveness of sins ;

39 And 'by him all that believe are justi-
fied from all things, from which ye could not
be justified by the law of Moses.

40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon
you which is spoken of in ™the prophets;

41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and
perish : for I work a work in your days, a
work which ye shall in no wise believe, though
a man declare it unto you.

42 And when the Jews were gone out ot
the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that
these words might be preached to them fthe
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.

44 II And the next sabbath-day came
almost the whole city together to hear the
word of God.

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

46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold,
and said, ilt 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.

48 And when the Gentiles heard this,
they were glad, and glorified the word of the
Lord: "and as many as were ordained to
feternal life, believed.

49 And the word of the Lord was pub-
lished, throughout all the region.

Paul and Barnabas are persecuted.

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 yBut 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.

CHAP. XIV.

1 Fard and Barnabas are persecuted from Iconium. 7 At
Lystra Paul healeth a cripple, whereupon they are
reputed as gods. 19 Paul is stoned. 21 They pass
through divers churches, confirming the disciples in
-faith and patience. 26 Returning to Antioch, they
report what God had done with them.

AND it came to pass in Iconium, that
they went both together into the syna-
gogue 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 speak-
ing boldly in the Lord, ^ which gave testi-
mony 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 divi-
ded : 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.

8 IT ^And there sat a certain man at Lys-
tra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple
from his mother's womb, who never had
walked.

9 The same heard Paul speak : who stead-
fastly beholding him, and ^ perceiving that he
had faith to be healed,

10 Said with a loud voice, s Stand upright
on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.

11 And when the people saw what Paul
had done, they hfted up their voices, saying
in the speech of Lycaonia, '' The gods are
come down to us in the likeness of men.

12 And they oafled 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 sacri-
fice with the people.

14 Which vfhQn 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, P which made heaven, and earth, and
the sea, and all things that are therein :

16 iWho in times past sufiered all nations
to walk in their own ways.

17 ' Nevertheless he left not himself with-
out 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 restrain-
ed they the people," that they had not done
sacrifice unto them.

19 IF '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.

21 And when they had preached the gos-
pel to that city, ^ and t had taught many, they
returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium,
and Antioch,

22 Confirming the souls of the disciples,
and y exhorting them to continue in the
faith, and that ^we must through much tri-
bulation 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 :

26 And thence sailed to Antioch, '• from
whence they had been •= recommended to the
grace of God, for the work which they ful-
filled.

27 And when they were come, and had
gathered the church together, * they rehearsed
all that God had done with them, and how
he had « opened the door of faith unto the
Gentiles.

28 And there they abode long time with
the disciples. -
