Paul and Barnabas preach in Iconium and Lystra. Paul heals a cripple. They are taken for gods. Paul is stoned. They preach in Derbe and Perge.

[1] And it came to pass in Iconium, that they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a very great multitude both of the Jews and of the Greeks did believe. [2] But the unbelieving Jews stirred up and incensed the minds of the Gentiles against the brethren. [3] A long time therefore they abode there, dealing confidently in the Lord, who gave testimony to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

[15] Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.

[16] Nevertheless he left not himself without testimony, doing good from heaven, giving rains and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. [17] And speaking these things, they scarce restrained the people from sacrificing to them. [18] Now there came thither certain Jews from Antioch, and Iconium: and persuading the multitude, and stoning Paul, drew him out of the city, thinking him to be dead. [19] But as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up and entered into the city, and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. [20] And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and to Antioch:

[21] Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith: and that through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God. [22] And when they had ordained to them priests in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, in whom they believed. [23] And passing through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia. [24] And having spoken the word of the Lord in Perge, they went down into Attalia: [25] And thence they sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been delivered to the grace of God, unto the work which they accomplished.

[26] And when they were come, and had assembled the church, they related what great things God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. [27] And they abode no small time with the disciples.
