Acts 14 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

14 And it befelled at Iconium, that they entered together into the synagogue of Jews [Forsooth it was done at Iconium, that together they entered into the synagogue of Jews], and spake, so that [a] full great multitude of Jews and Greeks believed.

But the Jews that were unbelieveful, raised persecution, and stirred to wrath the souls of heathen men against the brethren [raised persecution, and to wrath stirred the souls of heathen men against the brethren]; but the Lord gave soon peace.

Therefore they dwelled much time, and did trustily in the Lord [doing trustily in the Lord], bearing witnessing to the word of his grace, giving signs and wonders to be made by the hands of them.

But the multitude of the city was parted, and some were with the Jews, and some with the apostles.

But when there was made an assault of the heathen men and the Jews, with their princes, to torment and to stone them [to punish with despisings, or false blamings, and to stone them],

they understood, and fled together to the cities of Lycaonia, and Lystra, and Derbe, and into all the country about [and all the country in compass].

And they preached there the gospel, and all the multitude was moved together in the teaching of them. Paul and Barnabas dwelt at Lystra.

And a man at Lystra was sick in the feet, and had sat crooked from his mother's womb, which never had gone. [And some man at Lystra, sick in the feet, sat crooked from his mother's womb, the which never had gone.]

This heard Paul speaking; and Paul beheld him and saw that he had faith [the which beholding him, and seeing for he had faith], that he should be made safe,

10 and said with a great voice [said with great voice], Rise thou upright on thy feet. And he leaped, and walked.

11 And the people, when they had seen that that Paul did, reared their voice in Lycaonian tongue, and said [saying], Gods made like to men be come down to us.

12 And they called Barnabas Jupiter, and Paul Mercury, for he was leader of the word.

13 And the priest of Jupiter that was before the city, brought bulls and crowns before the gates, with peoples, and would have made sacrifice.

14 And when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard this [Which thing, when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard], they rent their coats; and they skipped out among the people, and cried [crying],

15 and said [and saying], Men, what do ye this thing? and we be deadly men like [to] you, and show to you, that ye be converted from these vain things to the living God, that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that be in them;

16 which in generations passed suffered all folks to go into their own ways.

17 And yet he left not himself without witnessing in well-doing, for he gave rains from heaven, and times of bearing fruit, and full-filled your hearts with meat and gladness [full-filling with meat and gladness your hearts].

18 And they saying these things, scarcely assuaged the people, that they offered not to them.

19 But some Jews came over from Antioch and Iconium, and counseled the people, and stoned Paul, and drew him out of the city, and guessed that he was dead. [Forsooth some Jews came out from Antioch and Iconium, and, the companies sweetly stirred, they stoning Paul, drew out of the city, guessing him to be dead.]

20 But when [the] disciples were come about him, he rose, and went into the city; and in the day following he went forth with Barnabas into Derbe.[a]

21 And when they had preached to that city [And when they had evangelized to that city], and taught many, they turned again to Lystra, and Iconium, and to Antioch;

22 confirming the souls of the disciples, and admonishing, that they should dwell in the faith, and said [and saying], That by many tribulations it behooveth us to enter into the kingdom of heavens.

23 And when they had ordained priests to them by all cities, and had prayed with fastings, they betook them to the Lord, in whom they believed.

24 And they passed Pisidia, and came to Pamphylia; [And they passing Pisidia, came to Pamphylia;]

25 and they spake the word of the Lord in Perga, and came down into Italy. [and they speaking the word of the Lord in Perga, came down into Italy.]

26 And from thence they went by boat to Antioch, from whence they were taken to the grace of God, into the work that they filled [into the work that they fulfilled].

27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church, they told how great things God did with them [they told how many things God did with them], and that he had opened to heathen men the door of faith.

28 And they dwelled not a little time with the disciples. [Forsooth they dwelled a time not little with the disciples.]

Acts 14 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Paul and Barnabas preach at Iconium. Some believe, some stir up a revolt. At Lystra the people want to make sacrifice to Barnabas and Paul, who refuse it and exhort the people to worship the true God. Paul is stoned. After that, he goes to Derbe, and again to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch.

14 And it happened in Iconium that Paul and Barnabas went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great number both of the Jews, and also of the Greeks, believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up and disquieted the minds of the Gentiles against the brethren.

They remained there a long time, and acquitted themselves boldly with the help of the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, causing signs and wonders to be done by their hands. The people of the city were divided: part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles. When an assault was planned, both by the Gentiles and also by the Jews with their leaders, to put them to shame and to stone them, they were aware of it, and fled to Lystra and Derbe in Lycaonia and to the region that lies round about, and there preached the gospel.

And at Lystra there sat a certain man weak in his feet, being crippled from his mother’s womb, who had never walked. This man heard Paul preach. Paul looked at him and perceived that he had faith to be whole, 10 and said with a loud voice, Stand upright on your feet! And he started up and walked.

11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, Gods have come down to us in the likeness of men! 12 And they called Barnabas Jupiter, and Paul Mercurius, because he was the preacher. 13 Then the priest of Jupiter, who dwelt in front of their city, brought oxen and garlands to the temple porch, and wanted to make sacrifice with the people.

14 But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard this, they tore their clothes and ran in among the people, crying out and saying, 15 Sirs, why do you do this? We are mortal men like you, and preach to you that you should turn from these vanities to the living God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them – 16 who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Nevertheless, he did not leave himself without witness, in that he showed his goodness in giving us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. 18 And with these words, they barely refrained the people from making sacrifice to them.

19 But certain Jews from Antioch and lconium came there, and they won the people over, and stoned Paul and drew him out of the city, supposing him to be dead. 20 However as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up and went into the city.

And the next day, Paul departed with Barnabas to Derbe. 21 After they had preached to that city and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium and Antioch, 22 and strengthened the disciples’ souls, exhorting them to continue in the faith, affirming that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. 23 And they appointed elders by election in every congregation, and prayed and fasted, and committed them to God on whom they believed.

24 And they went through Pisidia, and came into Pamphylia. 25 And when they had preached the word of God in Perga, they descended into Attalia, 26 and from there returned by ship to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work that they had completed. 27 When they arrived and had gathered the congregation together, they described all that God had done by them, and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they remained there a long time with the disciples.

Acts 14 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

14 1 Paul and Barnabas 5 are persecuted at Iconium: 6 At Lystra Paul  10 healeth a cripple: 13 They are about to do sacrifice unto them, 18 but they forbid it. 19 Paul by the persuasion of certain Jews, is stoned: 23 From thence passing through divers Churches,  26 they return to Antioch.

And [a]it came to pass in [b]Iconium, that they went both together into the Synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and of the Grecians believed.

And the [c]unbelieving Jews stirred up, and corrupted the minds of the Gentiles against the brethren.

[d]So therefore they abode there a long time, and spake boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and caused signs and wonders to be done by their hands.

But the multitude of the city was divided: and some were with the Jews, and some with the Apostles.

And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles, and of the Jews with their rulers, to do them violence, and to stone them,

They were ware of it, and [e]fled unto Lystra, and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region round about,

And there preached the Gospel.

[f]Now there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, which was a cripple from his mother’s womb, who had never walked.

He heard Paul speak: who beholding him and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,

10 Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped up, and walked.

11 Then when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, Gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.

12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter: and Paul Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.

13 Then Jupiter’s Priest, which was before their city, brought bulls with garlands unto the [g]gates, and would have sacrificed with the people.

14 But when the Apostles, Barnabas and Paul heard it, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying,

15 [h]And saying, O men, why do ye these things? We are even men subject to the [i]like passions that ye be, and preach unto you, that ye should turn from these [j]vain things unto the living God, which made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all things that in them are:

16 [k]Who in times past [l]suffered all the Gentiles to walk in their own ways.

17 Nevertheless, he left not himself without witness, in that he did good and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food, and gladness.

18 And speaking these things, scarce appeased they the multitude, that they had not sacrificed unto them.

19 [m]Then there came certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, which when they had persuaded the people, stoned Paul, and drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.

20 Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he arose up, and came into the city, and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.

21 [n]And after they had preached the glad tidings of the Gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned to Lystra, and to Iconium, and to Antioch.

22 [o]Confirming the disciples hearts, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, affirming that we must through many afflictions enter into the kingdom of God.

23 [p]And when they had ordained them Elders by election in every Church, and prayed, and fasted, they commended them to the Lord in whom they believed.

24 [q]Thus they went throughout Pisidia, and came to Pamphylia.

25 And when they had preached the word in Perga, they came down to [r]Attalia,

26 And thence sailed to [s]Antioch, from whence they had been commended unto the grace of God, to the work, which they had fulfilled.

27 And when they were come and had gathered the Church together, they rehearsed all the things that God had done by them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.

28 So there they abode a long time with the disciples.

Acts 14 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

14 And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles, and made their minds evil affected against the brethren. Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands. But the multitude of the city was divided: and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles. And when there was an assault made both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews with their rulers, to use them despitefully, and to stone them, they were ware of it, and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about: and there they preached the gospel.

And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: the same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, 10 said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. 11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. 12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker. 13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people. 14 Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out, 15 and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein: 16 who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. 18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.

19 And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead. 20 Howbeit, as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. 21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch, 22 confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. 23 And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.

24 And after they had passed throughout Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia. 25 And when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down into Attalia: 26 and thence sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been recommended to the grace of God for the work which they fulfilled. 27 And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that God had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles. 28 And there they abode long time with the disciples.
