13:1And in Antioch some among the existing church were prophets and teachers: both Barnabas and Simeon, he being called Niger, and Lucius the Cyrenian, and Manaen the foster brother of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
13:2And while they were doing service to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, So then separate both Barnabas and Saul to Me, for the work to which I have called them.
13:3Then, having fasted and prayed, and placing hands on them, they let them go.
13:4Then these indeed sent out by the Holy Spirit went down to Seleucia, and from there sailed away to Cyprus.
13:5And having been in Salamis, they announced the Word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. And they also had John as a helper.
13:6And passing through the island as far as Paphos, they found a certain conjurer, a false prophet, a Jew named Bar-jesus.
13:7He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This one having called Barnabas and Saul to him, he sought to hear the Word of God.
13:8But Elymas, the conjurer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
13:9But Saul, who is also Paul, being filled with the Holy Spirit, and looking intently on him,
13:10he said, O son of the Devil, full of all guile and of all cunning, enemy of all righteousness, will you not stop perverting the right ways of the Lord?
13:11And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is on you, and you will be blind, not seeing the sun until a time. And instantly a mist and darkness fell on him, and going about he sought some to lead him by the hand.
13:12Then seeing the thing happening, the proconsul believed, being astounded at the doctrine of the Lord.
13:13And putting out from Paphos with those around him , Paul came to Perga of Pamphylia. And separating from them, John returned to Jerusalem.
13:14But going through from Perga, they came to Antioch-Pisidia, and going into the synagogue on the day of the sabbaths, they sat down.

13:20And after these things, as four hundred and fifty years passed , He gave judges until Samuel the prophet.

13:22And removing him, He raised up to them David for a king, to whom He also said, witnessing, "I found David" the son of Jesse " to be a man according to My own heart, who will do all My will." 1 Samuel 13:14; Psa. 89:20; LXX-Isa. 44:28
13:23Of the seed of this one, according to promise, God raised up to Israel a Savior, Jesus;
13:24John going before to proclaim before the face of His entrance a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
13:25And as John fulfilled the course, he said, Whom do you suppose me to be? I am not He , but, behold, "He comes after me, of whom I am not worthy to loosen the sandal of His feet." John 1:27
13:26Men, brothers, sons of the race of Abraham, and the ones among you fearing God, to you the word of this salvation was sent.
13:27For those dwelling in Jerusalem, and their rulers, not having known this One, and the voices of the prophets being read throughout every sabbath, condemning Him , they fulfilled the Scriptures .
13:28And finding not one cause of death, they asked Pilate to do away with Him.
13:29And when they finished all the things having been written concerning Him, taking Him down from the tree, they laid Him in a tomb.
13:30But God raised Him from the dead;
13:31who appeared for many days to those coming up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are witnesses of Him to the people.
13:32And we preach the gospel to you, the promise made to the fathers,
13:33that this God has fulfilled to us, their children, raising up Jesus; as also it has been written in the second Psalm, "You are My Son, today I have begotten You." Psa. 2:7
13:34And that He raised Him from the dead, no more being about to return to corruption, so He has said, "I will give You" "the holy things of faithful David." Isa. 55:3
13:35So He also said in another, "You will not give Your Holy One to see corruption." LXX-Psa. 15:10; MT-Psa. 16:10
13:36For having served his own generation by the counsel of God, David truly fell asleep and was added to his fathers and saw corruption. 1 Kg. 2:10

13:42But the Jews having gone out of the synagogue, the nations begged that these words be spoken to them on the next sabbath.

13:44And in the coming sabbath, almost all the city was gathered to hear the Word of God.
13:45And the Jews seeing the crowds, they were filled with jealousy, and contradicted the things being spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
13:46But speaking boldly, Paul and Barnabas said, It was necessary for the Word of God to be spoken first to you; but since you indeed thrust it away and judge yourselves not worthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the nations.
13:47For so the Lord has commanded us, "I have set You for a Light of nations, that You be for salvation to the end of the earth." Isa. 49:6
13:48And hearing, the nations rejoiced and glorified the Word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.
13:49And the Word of the Lord was carried through all the country.
