Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

14:1And it happened in Iconium, they went in together into the synagogue of the Jews, and spoke so as for a huge multitude of both Jews and Greeks to believe.
14:2But the unbelieving Jews raised up and made malignant the souls of the nations against the brothers.
14:3Then, indeed, they stayed a considerable time, speaking boldly on the Lord, witnessing to the Word of His grace, and He giving miracles and wonders to occur through their hands.
14:4And the multitude of the city was divided; and some were with the Jews, but others with the apostles.
14:5And when a rush of the nations occurred, and both the Jews and their rulers came to insult and to stone them,
14:6perceiving this , they fled to the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra and Derbe, and the surrounding country.
14:7And they were announcing the gospel there.
14:8And a certain man was sitting in Lystra, powerless in the feet, being lame from his mother's womb, who had never walked.
14:9This one heard Paul speaking, who, looking intently at him, and seeing that he had faith to be cured,
14:10he said with a loud voice, Stand upright on your feet! And he leaped up and walked about.
14:11And seeing what Paul did, the crowd lifted up their voice in Lycaonian, saying, The gods have come down to us, becoming like men.
14:12And they called Barnabas, Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the leader in speaking.
14:13And the priest of Zeus being before their city, carrying bulls and garlands to the gates, he wished to sacrifice along with the crowds.
14:14But Paul and Barnabas, the apostles, hearing, tearing their garments, they sprang into the crowd, crying out,
14:15and saying, Men, why do you do these things? We also are men of like feelings to you, announcing the gospel to you to turn you from these vanities to the living God, who "made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all things in them," Ex. 20:11
14:16who in the generations which have passed allowed all the nations to go in their own ways,
14:17though indeed He did not leave Himself without witness, doing good, giving rain and fruitful seasons to us from heaven, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
14:18And saying these things, they hardly stopped the crowds, that they not sacrifice to them.
14:19But Jews came there from Antioch and Iconium, and persuading the crowds, and stoning Paul, they dragged him outside the city, supposing him to have died.
14:20But the disciples surrounding him, arising he entered into the city. And on the morrow he went away with Barnabas to Derbe.
14:21And having announced the gospel to that city, and having made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and Iconium and Antioch,
14:22confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting to continue in the faith, and that through many afflictions we must enter into the kingdom of God.
14:23And having handpicked elders for them in every church, having prayed with fastings, they committed them to the Lord into whom they had believed.
14:24And passing through Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia.
14:25And speaking the Word in Perga, they came down to Attalia,
14:26and from there they sailed to Antioch, from where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled.
14:27And having arrived, and gathering the church, they reported what things God did with them and that He opened a door of faith to the nations.
14:28And they remained there not a little time with the disciples.
