Acts 13 (WEBP)
 Now in the assembly that was at Antioch there were some prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen the foster brother of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
 As they served the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Separate Barnabas and Saul for me, for the work to which I have called them.”
 Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia. From there they sailed to Cyprus.
 When they were at Salamis, they proclaimed God’s word in the Jewish synagogues. They also had John as their attendant.
 When they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar Jesus,
 who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of understanding. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul, and sought to hear the word of God.
 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
 But Saul, who is also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fastened his eyes on him
 and said, “You son of the devil, full of all deceit and all cunning, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
 Now, behold, the hand of the Lord is on you, and you will be blind, not seeing the sun for a season!” Immediately a mist and darkness fell on him. He went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.
 Then the proconsul, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord.
 Now Paul and his company set sail from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia. John departed from them and returned to Jerusalem.
 But they, passing on from Perga, came to Antioch of Pisidia. They went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day and sat down.
 After the reading of the law and the prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying, “Brothers, if you have any word of exhortation for the people, speak.”
 Paul stood up, and gesturing with his hand said, “Men of Israel, and you who fear God, listen.
 The God of this people° chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they stayed as aliens in the land of Egypt, and with an uplifted arm, he led them out of it.
 For a period of about forty years he put up with them in the wilderness.
 When he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, he gave them their land for an inheritance for about four hundred fifty years.
 After these things, he gave them judges until Samuel the prophet.
 Afterward they asked for a king, and God gave to them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years.
 When he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, to whom he also testified, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after my heart, who will do all my will.’
 From this man’s offspring, God has brought salvation° to Israel according to his promise,
 before his coming, when John had first preached the baptism of repentance to Israel.°
 As John was fulfilling his course, he said, ‘What do you suppose that I am? I am not he. But behold, one comes after me, the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie.’
 “Brothers, children of the stock of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, the word of this salvation is sent out to you.
 For those who dwell in Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they didn’t know him, nor the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, fulfilled them by condemning him.
 Though they found no cause for death, they still asked Pilate to have him killed.
 When they had fulfilled all things that were written about him, they took him down from the tree and laid him in a tomb.
 But God raised him from the dead,
 and he was seen for many days by those who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses to the people.
 We bring you good news of the promise made to the fathers,
 that God has fulfilled this to us, their children, in that he raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second psalm, ‘You are my Son. Today I have become your father.’†
 “Concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he has spoken thus: ‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David.’†
 Therefore he says also in another psalm, ‘You will not allow your Holy One to see decay.’†
 For David, after he had in his own generation served the counsel of God, fell asleep, was laid with his fathers, and saw decay.
 But he whom God raised up saw no decay.
 Be it known to you therefore, brothers,§ that through this man is proclaimed to you remission of sins;
 and by him everyone who believes is justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
 Beware therefore, lest that come on you which is spoken in the prophets:
 ‘Behold, you scoffers! Wonder and perish, for I work a work in your days, a work which you will in no way believe, if one declares it to you.’ ”†
 So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath.
 Now when the synagogue broke up, many of the Jews and of the devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas; who, speaking to them, urged them to continue in the grace of God.
 The next Sabbath, almost the whole city was gathered together to hear the word of God.
 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with jealousy, and contradicted the things which were spoken by Paul, and blasphemed.
 Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, and said, “It was necessary that God’s word should be spoken to you first. Since indeed you thrust it from yourselves, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.
 For so has the Lord commanded us, saying, ‘I have set you as a light for the Gentiles, that you should bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.’ ”†
 As the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of God. As many as were appointed to eternal life believed.
 The Lord’s word was spread abroad throughout all the region.
 But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, and stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and threw them out of their borders.
 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came to Iconium.
 The disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

Acts 13 (KJVS)
 Now G1161 there were G2258 (ImpfInd) in G2596 the church G1577 that was G5607 (PresPtc) at G1722 Antioch G490 certain G5100 prophets G4396 and G2532 teachers G1320; as G5037 Barnabas G921, and G2532 Simeon G4826 that was called G2564 (PresPasPtc) Niger G3526, and G2532 Lucius G3066 of Cyrene G2956, and G5037 Manaen G3127, which had been brought up G4939 with Herod G2264 the tetrarch G5076, and G2532 Saul G4569.
 As G1161 they G846 ministered G3008 (PresActPtc) to the Lord G2962, and G2532 fasted G3522 (PresActPtc), the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), G1211 Separate G873 (AorActImpr) me G3427 G5037 Barnabas G921 and G2532 Saul G4569 for G1519 the work G2041 whereunto G3739 I have called G4341 (PerfMidPasDepInd) them G846.
 And G5119 when they had fasted G3522 (AorActPtc) and G2532 prayed G4336 (AorMidDepPtc), and G2532 laid G2007 [their] hands G5495 on G2007 (Aor2ActPtc) them G846, they sent [them] away G630 (AorActInd).
 So G3303 G3767 they G3778, being sent forth G1599 (AorPasPtc) by G5259 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151, departed G2718 (Aor2ActInd) unto G1519 Seleucia G4581; and from G1564 thence G5037 they sailed G636 (AorActInd) to G1519 Cyprus G2954.
 And G2532 when they were G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) at G1722 Salamis G4529, they preached G2605 (ImpfActInd) the word G3056 of God G2316 in G1722 the synagogues G4864 of the Jews G2453: and G1161 they had G2192 (ImpfActInd) also G2532 John G2491 to [their] minister G5257.
 And G1161 when they had gone through G1330 (Aor2ActPtc) the isle G3520 unto G891 Paphos G3974, they found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) a certain G5100 sorcerer G3097, a false prophet G5578, a Jew G2453, whose G3739 name G3686 [was] Barjesus G919:
 Which G3739 was G2258 (ImpfInd) with G4862 the deputy of the country G446, Sergius G4588 Paulus G3972, a prudent G4908 man G435; who G3778 called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) for Barnabas G921 and G2532 Saul G4569, and desired G1934 (AorActInd) to hear G191 (AorActInf) the word G3056 of God G2316.
 But G1161 Elymas G1681 the sorcerer G3097 (for G1063 so G3779 is his G846 name G3686 by interpretation G3177 (PresPasInd)) withstood G436 (ImpfMidInd) them G846, seeking G2212 (PresActPtc) to turn away G1294 (AorActInf) the deputy G446 from G575 the faith G4102.
 Then G1161 Saul G4569, (who G3588 also G2532 [is called] Paul G3972,) filled with G4130 (AorPasPtc) the Holy G40 Ghost G4151, G2532 set his eyes G816 (AorActPtc) on G1519 him G846,
 And said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), O G5599 full G4134 of all G3956 subtilty G1388 and G2532 all G3956 mischief G4468, [thou] child G5207 of the devil G1228, [thou] enemy G2190 of all G3956 righteousness G1343, wilt thou G3973 not G3756 cease G3973 (FutMidDepInd) to pervert G1294 (PresActPtc) the right G2117 ways G3598 of the Lord G2962?
 And G2532 now G3568, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), the hand G5495 of the Lord G2962 [is] upon G1909 thee G4571, and G2532 thou shalt be G2071 (FutInd) blind G5185, not G3361 seeing G991 (PresActPtc) the sun G2246 for G891 a season G2540. And G1161 immediately G3916 there fell G1968 (Aor2ActInd) on G1909 him G846 a mist G887 and G2532 a darkness G4655; and G2532 he went about G4013 (PresActPtc) seeking G2212 (ImpfActInd) some to lead him by the hand G5497.
 Then G5119 the deputy G446, when he saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) what was done G1096 (Perf2ActPtc), believed G4100 (AorActInd), being astonished G1605 (PresPasPtc) at G1909 the doctrine G1322 of the Lord G2962.
 Now G1161 when Paul G3972 and his company G4012 loosed G321 (AorPasPtc) from G575 Paphos G3974, they came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Perga G4011 in Pamphylia G3828: and G1161 John G2491 departing G672 (AorActPtc) from G575 them G846 returned G5290 (AorActInd) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414.
 But G1161 when they G846 departed G1330 (Aor2ActPtc) from G575 Perga G4011, they came G3854 (Aor2MidDepInd) to G1519 Antioch G490 in Pisidia G4099, and G2532 went G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 the synagogue G4864 on the sabbath G4521 day G2250, and sat down G2523 (AorActInd).
 And G1161 after G3326 the reading G320 of the law G3551 and G2532 the prophets G4396 the rulers of the synagogue G752 sent G649 (AorActInd) unto G4314 them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), [Ye] men G435 [and] brethren G80, if G1487 ye have G2076 (PresInd) G1722 G5213 any word G3056 of exhortation G3874 for G4314 the people G2992, say on G3004 (PresActImpr).
 Then G1161 Paul G3972 stood up G450 (Aor2ActPtc), and G2532 beckoning G2678 (AorActPtc) with [his] hand G5495 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Men G435 of Israel G2475, and G2532 ye that fear G5399 (PresMidPasDepPtc) God G2316, give audience G191 (AorActImpr).
 The God G2316 of this G5127 people G2992 of Israel G2474 chose G1586 (AorMidInd) our G2257 fathers G3962, and G2532 exalted G5312 (AorActInd) the people G2992 when G1722 they dwelt as strangers G3940 in G1722 the land G1093 of Egypt G125, and G2532 with G3326 an high G5308 arm G1023 brought he G1806 (Aor2ActInd) them G846 out of G1537 it G846.
 And G2532 about G5613 the time G5550 of forty years G5063 suffered he G5159 their G846 manners G5159 (AorActInd) in G1722 the wilderness G2048.
 And G2532 when he had destroyed G2507 (Aor2ActPtc) seven G2033 nations G1484 in G1722 the land G1093 of Chanaan G5477, he divided G2624 their G846 land G1093 to them G846 by lot G2624 (AorActInd).
 And G2532 after G3326 that G5023 he gave G1325 (AorActInd) [unto them] judges G2923 about G5613 the space of four hundred G5071 and G2532 fifty G4004 years G2094, until G2193 Samuel G4545 the prophet G4396.
 And afterward G2547 they desired G154 (AorMidInd) a king G935: and G2532 God G2316 gave G1325 (AorActInd) unto them G846 Saul G4549 the son G5207 of Cis G2797, a man G435 of G1537 the tribe G5443 of Benjamin G958, by the space of forty G5062 years G2094.
 And G2532 when he had removed G3179 (AorActPtc) him G846, he raised up G1453 (AorActInd) unto them G846 David G1138 to be G1519 their king G935; to whom G3739 also G2532 he gave testimony G3140 (AorActPtc), and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), I have found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) David G1138 the [son] of Jesse G2421, a man G435 after G2596 mine own G3450 heart G2588, which G3739 shall fulfil G4160 (FutActInd) all G3956 my G3450 will G2307.
 Of G575 this man’s G5127 seed G4690 hath G1453 God G2316 according G2596 to [his] promise G1860 raised G1453 (AorActInd) unto Israel G2474 a Saviour G4990, Jesus G2424:
 When John G2491 had first preached G4296 (AorActPtc) before G4253 his G846 coming G4383 G1529 the baptism G908 of repentance G3341 to all G3956 the people G2992 of Israel G2474.
 And G1161 as G5613 John G2491 fulfilled G4137 (ImpfActInd) his course G1408, he said G3004 (ImpfActInd), Whom G5101 think ye G5282 (PresActInd) that I G3165 am G1511 (PresInf)? I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) not G3756 [he]. But G235, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), there cometh one G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd) after G3326 me G1691, whose G3739 shoes G5266 of [his] feet G4228 I am G1510 (PresInd) not G3756 worthy G514 to loose G3089 (AorActInf).
 Men G435 [and] brethren G80, children G5207 of the stock G1085 of Abraham G11, and G2532 whosoever among G1722 you G5213 feareth G5399 (PresMidPasDepPtc) God G2316, to you G5213 is G649 the word G3056 of this G5026 salvation G4991 sent G649 (Aor2PasDepSubj).
 For G1063 they that dwell G2730 (PresActPtc) at G1722 Jerusalem G2419, and G2532 their G846 rulers G758, because they knew G50 him G5126 not G50 (AorActPtc), nor yet G2532 the voices G5456 of the prophets G4396 which G3588 are read G314 (PresPasPtc) G2596 every G3956 sabbath day G4521, they have fulfilled G4137 (AorActInd) [them] in condemning G2919 (AorActPtc) [him].
 And G2532 though they found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) no G3367 cause G156 of death G2288 [in him], yet desired they G154 (AorMidInd) Pilate G4091 that he G846 should be slain G337 (AorPasInf).
 And G1161 when G5613 they had fulfilled G5055 (AorActInd) all G537 that was written G1125 (PerfPasPtc) of G4012 him G846, they took [him] down G2507 (Aor2ActPtc) from G575 the tree G3586, and laid G5087 (AorActInd) [him] in G1519 a sepulchre G3419.
 But G1161 God G2316 raised G1453 (AorActInd) him G846 from G1537 the dead G3498:
 And he G3739 was seen G3700 (AorPasInd) many G1909 G4119 days G2250 of them which came up with G4872 (Aor2ActPtc) him G846 from G575 Galilee G1056 to G1519 Jerusalem G2419, who G3748 are G1526 (PresInd) his G846 witnesses G3144 unto G4314 the people G2992.
 And G2532 we G2249 declare G2097 unto you G5209 glad tidings G2097 (PresMidInd), how that G3754 the promise G1860 which was made G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) unto G4314 the fathers G3962,
 God G2316 hath fulfilled G1603 (PerfActInd) the same G5026 unto us G2254 their G846 children G5043, in that he hath raised up G450 Jesus G2424 again G450 (AorActPtc); as G5613 it is G1125 also G2532 written G1125 (PerfPasInd) in G1722 the second G1208 psalm G5568, Thou G4771 art G1488 (PresInd) my G3450 Son G5207, this day G4594 have I G1473 begotten G1080 (PerfActInd) thee G4571.
 And G1161 as concerning that G3754 he raised G450 him G846 up G450 (AorActInd) from G1537 the dead G3498, [now] no more G3371 to G3195 (PresActPtc) return G5290 (PresActInf) to G1519 corruption G1312, he said G2046 (PerfActInd) on this wise G3779, G3754 I will give G1325 (FutActInd) you G5213 the sure G4103 mercies G3741 of David G1138.
 Wherefore G1352 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) also G2532 in G1722 another G2087 [psalm], Thou shalt G1325 not G3756 suffer G1325 (FutActInd) thine G4675 Holy One G3741 to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) corruption G1312.
 For G1063 G3303 David G1138, after he had served G5256 (AorActPtc) his own G2398 generation G1074 by the will G1012 of God G2316, fell on sleep G2837 (AorPasInd), and G2532 was laid G4369 (AorPasInd) unto G4314 his G846 fathers G3962, and G2532 saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) corruption G1312:
 But G1161 he, whom G3739 God G2316 raised again G1453 (AorActInd), saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) no G3756 corruption G1312.
 Be it G2077 (PresImpr) known G1110 unto you G5213 therefore G3767, men G435 [and] brethren G80, that G3754 through G1223 this man G5127 is preached G2605 (PresPasInd) unto you G5213 the forgiveness G859 of sins G266:
 And G2532 by G1722 him G5129 all G3956 that believe G4100 (PresActPtc) are justified G1344 (PresPasInd) from G575 all things G3956, from which G3739 ye could G1410 (AorPasDepInd) not G3756 be justified G1344 (AorPasInf) by G1722 the law G3551 of Moses G3475.
 Beware G991 (PresActImpr) therefore G3767, lest that G3361 come G1904 (Aor2ActSubj) upon G1909 you G5209, which is spoken of G2046 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 the prophets G4396;
 Behold G1492 (Aor2ActImpr), ye despisers G2707, and G2532 wonder G2296 (AorActImpr), and G2532 perish G853 (AorPasImpr): for G3754 I G1473 work G2038 (PresMidPasDepInd) a work G2041 in G1722 your G5216 days G2250, a work G2041 which G3739 ye shall G4100 in no wise G3364 believe G4100 (AorActSubj), though G1437 a man G5100 declare it G1555 (PresMidPasDepSubj) unto you G5213.
 And G1161 when the Jews G2453 were gone G1826 (Aor2Ptc) out of G1537 the synagogue G4864, the Gentiles G1484 besought G3870 (ImpfActInd) that these G5023 words G4487 might be preached G2980 (AorPasInf) to them G846 G1519 the next G3342 sabbath G4521.
 Now G1161 when the congregation G4864 was broken up G3089 (AorPasPtc), many G4183 of the Jews G2453 and G2532 religious G4576 (PresMidPasDepPtc) proselytes G4339 followed G190 (AorActInd) Paul G3972 and G2532 Barnabas G921: who G3748, speaking G4354 (PresActPtc) to them G846, persuaded G3982 (ImpfActInd) them G846 to continue G1961 (PresActInf) in the grace G5485 of God G2316.
 And G1161 the next G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) sabbath day G4521 came G4863 almost G4975 the whole G3956 city G4172 together G4863 (AorPasInd) to hear G191 (AorActInf) the word G3056 of God G2316.
 But G1161 when the Jews G2453 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) the multitudes G3793, they were filled G4130 (AorPasInd) with envy G2205, and G2532 spake against G483 (ImpfActInd) those things which were spoken G3004 (PresPasPtc) by G5259 Paul G3972, contradicting G483 (PresActPtc) and G2532 blaspheming G987 (PresActPtc).
 Then G1161 Paul G3972 and G2532 Barnabas G921 waxed bold G3955 (AorMidDepPtc), and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), It was G2258 (ImpfInd) necessary G316 that the word G3056 of God G2316 should G2980 first G4412 have been spoken G2980 (AorPasInf) to you G5213: but G1161 seeing G1894 ye put G683 it G846 from you G683 (PresMidPasDepInd), and G2532 judge G2919 (PresActInd) yourselves G1438 unworthy G3756 G514 of everlasting G166 life G2222, lo G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), we turn G4762 (PresPasInd) to G1519 the Gentiles G1484.
 For G1063 so G3779 hath G1781 the Lord G2962 commanded G1781 (PerfPasInd) us G2254, [saying], I have set G5087 (PerfActInd) thee G4571 to be G1519 a light G5457 of the Gentiles G1484, that thou G4571 shouldest be G1511 (PresInf) for G1519 salvation G4991 unto G2193 the ends G2078 of the earth G1093.
 And G1161 when the Gentiles G1484 heard this G191 (PresActPtc), they were glad G5463 (ImpfActInd), and G2532 glorified G1392 (ImpfActInd) the word G3056 of the Lord G2962: and G2532 as many as G3745 were G2258 (ImpfInd) ordained G5021 (PerfPasPtc) to G1519 eternal G166 life G2222 believed G4100 (AorActInd).
 And G1161 the word G3056 of the Lord G2962 was published G1308 (ImpfPasInd) throughout G1223 all G3650 the region G5561.
 But G1161 the Jews G2453 stirred up G3951 (AorActInd) the devout G4576 (PresMidPasDepPtc) and G2532 honourable G2158 women G1135, and G2532 the chief men G4413 of the city G4172, and G2532 raised G1892 (AorActInd) persecution G1375 against G1909 Paul G3972 and G2532 Barnabas G921, and G2532 expelled G1544 (Aor2ActInd) them G846 out of G575 their G846 coasts G3725.
 But G1161 they shook off G1621 (AorMidPtc) the dust G2868 of their G846 feet G4228 against G1909 them G846, and came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) unto G1519 Iconium G2430.
 And G1161 the disciples G3101 were filled with G4137 (ImpfPasInd) joy G5479, and G2532 with the Holy G40 Ghost G4151.
Young’s Literal Translation
Acts 13 (YLT)
 And there were certain in Antioch, in the assembly there, prophets and teachers; both Barnabas, and Simeon who is called Niger, and Lucius the Cyrenian, Manaen also-Herod the tetrarch’s foster-brother-and Saul;
 and in their ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Separate ye to me both Barnabas and Saul to the work to which I have called them,’
 then having fasted, and having prayed, and having laid the hands on them, they sent them away.
 These, indeed, then, having been sent forth by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia, thence also they sailed to Cyprus,
 and having come unto Salamis, they declared the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews, and they had also John as a ministrant;
 and having gone through the island unto Paphos, they found a certain magian, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name is Bar-Jesus;
 who was with the proconsul Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man; this one having called for Barnabas and Saul, did desire to hear the word of God,
 and there withstood them Elymas the magian-for so is his name interpreted-seeking to pervert the proconsul from the faith.
 And Saul-who also is Paul-having been filled with the Holy Spirit, and having looked stedfastly on him,
 said, ‘O full of all guile, and all profligacy, son of a devil, enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease perverting the right ways of the Lord?
 and now, lo, a hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season;’ and presently there fell upon him a mist and darkness, and he, going about, was seeking some to lead him by the hand;
 then the proconsul having seen what hath come to pass, did believe, being astonished at the teaching of the Lord.
 And those about Paul having set sail from Paphos, came to Perga of Pamphylia, and John having departed from them, did turn back to Jerusalem,
 and they having gone through from Perga, came to Antioch of Pisidia, and having gone into the synagogue on the sabbath-day, they sat down,
 and after the reading of the law and of the prophets, the chief men of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, ‘Men, brethren, if there be a word in you of exhortation unto the people-say on.’
 And Paul having risen, and having beckoned with the hand, said, ‘Men, Israelites, and those fearing God, hearken:
 the God of this people Israel did choose our fathers, and the people He did exalt in their sojourning in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm did He bring them out of it;
 and about a period of forty years He did suffer their manners in the wilderness,
 and having destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, He did divide by lot to them their land.
 ‘And after these things, about four hundred and fifty years, He gave judges-till Samuel the prophet;
 and thereafter they asked for a king, and God did give to them Saul, son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years;
 and having removed him, He did raise up to them David for king, to whom also having testified, he said, I found David, the son of Jesse, a man according to My heart, who shall do all My will.
 ‘Of this one’s seed God, according to promise, did raise to Israel a Saviour-Jesus,
 John having first preached, before his coming, a baptism of reformation to all the people of Israel;
 and as John was fulfilling the course, he said, Whom me do ye suppose to be? I am not he, but, lo, he doth come after me, of whom I am not worthy to loose the sandal of his feet.
 ‘Men, brethren, sons of the race of Abraham, and those among you fearing God, to you was the word of this salvation sent,
 for those dwelling in Jerusalem, and their chiefs, this one not having known, also the voices of the prophets, which every sabbath are being read-having judged him-did fulfil,
 and no cause of death having found, they did ask of Pilate that he should be slain,
 and when they did complete all the things written about him, having taken him down from the tree, they laid him in a tomb;
 and God did raise him out of the dead,
 and he was seen for many days of those who did come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
 ‘And we to you do proclaim good news-that the promise made unto the fathers,
 God hath in full completed this to us their children, having raised up Jesus, as also in the second Psalm it hath been written, My Son thou art-I to-day have begotten thee.
 ‘And that He did raise him up out of the dead, no more to return to corruption, he hath said thus-I will give to you the faithful kindnesses of David;
 wherefore also in another place he saith, Thou shalt not give Thy kind One to see corruption,
 for David, indeed, his own generation having served by the will of God, did fall asleep, and was added unto his fathers, and saw corruption,
 but he whom God did raise up, did not see corruption.
 ‘Let it therefore be known to you, men, brethren, that through this one to you is the forgiveness of sins declared,
 and from all things from which ye were not able in the law of Moses to be declared righteous, in this one every one who is believing is declared righteous;
 see, therefore, it may not come upon you that hath been spoken in the prophets:
 See, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish, because a work I-I do work in your days, a work in which ye may not believe, though any one may declare it to you.’
 And having gone forth out of the synagogue of the Jews, the nations were calling upon them that on the next sabbath these sayings may be spoken to them,
 and the synagogue having been dismissed, many of the Jews and of the devout proselytes did follow Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were persuading them to remain in the grace of God.
 And on the coming sabbath, almost all the city was gathered together to hear the word of God,
 and the Jews having seen the multitudes, were filled with zeal, and did contradict the things spoken by Paul-contradicting and speaking evil.
 And speaking boldly, Paul and Barnabas said, ‘To you it was necessary that first the word of God be spoken, and seeing ye do thrust it away, and do not judge yourselves worthy of the life age-during, lo, we do turn to the nations;
 for so hath the Lord commanded us: I have set thee for a light of nations-for thy being for salvation unto the end of the earth.’
 And the nations hearing were glad, and were glorifying the word of the Lord, and did believe-as many as were appointed to life age-during;
 and the word of the Lord was spread abroad through all the region.
 And the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the first men of the city, and did raise persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and did put them out from their borders;
 and they having shaken off the dust of their feet against them, came to Iconium,
 and the disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit.
