23 And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him down because[a] he did not give the glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and[b] died. 24 But the word of God kept on increasing[c] and multiplying.

25 So Barnabas and Saul returned to[d] Jerusalem when they[e] had completed their[f] service, having taken along with them[g] John (who is also called Mark).
