katapi HOME Acts 14:8-20 - Paul and Barnabas at Lystra  Ac.14.8-20 (Lystra)

14 8 Now at Lystra there was a man sitting, who could not use his feet; he was a cripple from birth, who had never walked. 14 9 He listened to Paul speaking; and Paul, looking intently at him and seeing that he had faith to be made well, 14 10 said in a loud voice, "Stand upright on your feet." And he sprang up and walked. 14 11 And when the crowds saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian, "The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!" 14 12 Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, because he was the chief speaker, they called Hermes. 14 13 And the priest of Zeus, whose temple was in front of the city, brought oxen and garlands to the gates and wanted to offer sacrifice with the people. 14 14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of it, they tore their garments and rushed out among the multitude, crying, 14 15 [ Ex.20.11, Ps.146.6. ] "Men, why are you doing this? We also are men, of like nature with you, and bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. 14 16 In past generations he allowed all the nations to walk in their own ways; 14 17 yet he did not leave himself without witness, for he did good and gave you from heaven rains and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness." 14 18 With these words they scarcely restrained the people from offering sacrifice to them.

14 19 But Jews came there from Antioch and Iconium; and having persuaded the people, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. 14 20 But when the disciples gathered about him, he rose up and entered the city; and on the next day he went on with Barnabas to Derbe.
