14 From Perga they went on to Pisidian Antioch.(A) On the Sabbath(B) they entered the synagogue(C) and sat down. 15 After the reading from the Law(D) and the Prophets, the leaders of the synagogue sent word to them, saying, “Brothers, if you have a word of exhortation for the people, please speak.”

16 Standing up, Paul motioned with his hand(E) and said: “Fellow Israelites and you Gentiles who worship God, listen to me! 17 The God of the people of Israel chose our ancestors; he made the people prosper during their stay in Egypt; with mighty power he led them out of that country;(F) 18 for about forty years he endured their conduct[a](G) in the wilderness;(H) 19 and he overthrew seven nations in Canaan,(I) giving their land to his people(J) as their inheritance.(K) 20 All this took about 450 years.

“After this, God gave them judges(L) until the time of Samuel the prophet.(M) 21 Then the people asked for a king,(N) and he gave them Saul(O) son of Kish, of the tribe of Benjamin,(P) who ruled forty years. 22 After removing Saul,(Q) he made David their king.(R) God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart;(S) he will do everything I want him to do.’(T)

23 “From this man’s descendants(U) God has brought to Israel the Savior(V) Jesus,(W) as he promised.(X) 24 Before the coming of Jesus, John preached repentance and baptism to all the people of Israel.(Y) 25 As John was completing his work,(Z) he said: ‘Who do you suppose I am? I am not the one you are looking for.(AA) But there is one coming after me whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.’(AB)

26 “Fellow children of Abraham(AC) and you God-fearing Gentiles, it is to us that this message of salvation(AD) has been sent. 27 The people of Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize Jesus,(AE) yet in condemning him they fulfilled the words of the prophets(AF) that are read every Sabbath. 28 Though they found no proper ground for a death sentence, they asked Pilate to have him executed.(AG) 29 When they had carried out all that was written about him,(AH) they took him down from the cross(AI) and laid him in a tomb.(AJ) 30 But God raised him from the dead,(AK) 31 and for many days he was seen by those who had traveled with him from Galilee to Jerusalem.(AL) They are now his witnesses(AM) to our people.

32 “We tell you the good news:(AN) What God promised our ancestors(AO) 33 he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus.(AP) As it is written in the second Psalm:

“‘You are my son;
    today I have become your father.’[b](AQ)

34 God raised him from the dead so that he will never be subject to decay. As God has said,

“‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.’[c](AR)

35 So it is also stated elsewhere:

“‘You will not let your holy one see decay.’[d](AS)

36 “Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep;(AT) he was buried with his ancestors(AU) and his body decayed. 37 But the one whom God raised from the dead(AV) did not see decay.

38 “Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.(AW) 39 Through him everyone who believes(AX) is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.(AY) 40 Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:

41 “‘Look, you scoffers,
    wonder and perish,
for I am going to do something in your days
    that you would never believe,
    even if someone told you.’[e](AZ)

42 As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue,(BA) the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. 43 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.(BB)

44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord. 45 When the Jews saw the crowds, they were filled with jealousy. They began to contradict what Paul was saying(BC) and heaped abuse(BD) on him.

46 Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first.(BE) Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles.(BF) 47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us:

“‘I have made you[f] a light for the Gentiles,(BG)
    that you[g] may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’[h](BH)

48 When the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and honored the word of the Lord;(BI) and all who were appointed for eternal life believed.

49 The word of the Lord(BJ) spread through the whole region. 50 But the Jewish leaders incited the God-fearing women of high standing and the leading men of the city. They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region.(BK) 51 So they shook the dust off their feet(BL) as a warning to them and went to Iconium.(BM) 52 And the disciples(BN) were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.(BO)

Jesus Drives Out an Impure Spirit(A)

31 Then he went down to Capernaum,(B) a town in Galilee, and on the Sabbath he taught the people. 32 They were amazed at his teaching,(C) because his words had authority.(D)

33 In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, 34 “Go away! What do you want with us,(E) Jesus of Nazareth?(F) Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are(G)—the Holy One of God!”(H)

35 “Be quiet!” Jesus said sternly.(I) “Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him.

36 All the people were amazed(J) and said to each other, “What words these are! With authority(K) and power he gives orders to impure spirits and they come out!” 37 And the news about him spread throughout the surrounding area.(L)
