1 Now there were at aAntioch, in the bchurch that was there, cprophets and dteachers: eBarnabas, and Simeon who was called Niger, and Lucius of fCyrene, and Manaen who had been brought up with gHerod the tetrarch, and Saul.
7 who was with the aproconsul, Sergius Paulus, a man of intelligence. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God.
11 “Now, behold, athe hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a time.” And immediately a mist and a darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking those who would lead him by the hand.
16 Paul stood up, and amotioning with his hand said,
“Men of Israel, and byou who fear God, listen:
26 “Brethren, sons of Abraham’s family, and those among you who fear God, to us the message of athis salvation has been sent.
30 “But God araised Him from the dead;
40 “Therefore take heed, so that the thing spoken of ain the Prophets may not come upon you:
For I am accomplishing a work in your days,
A work which you will never believe, though someone should describe it to you.’ ”
43 Now when the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and of the aGod-fearing 1bproselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, were urging them to continue in cthe grace of God.
46 Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly and said, “It was necessary that the word of God be spoken to you afirst; since you repudiate it and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, bwe are turning to the Gentiles.
That You may 1bring salvation to the end of the earth.’ ”
49 And athe word of the Lord was being spread through the whole region.
52 And the disciples were continually afilled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
