14 Now it happened in Iconium that they went together to the synagogue of the Jews, and so spoke that a great multitude both of the Jews and of the aGreeks believed. 2 But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and 1poisoned their 2minds against the brethren. 3 Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, bwho was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and cwonders to be done by their hands.
4 But the multitude of the city was ddivided: part sided with the Jews, and part with the eapostles. 5 And when a violent attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, fto abuse and stone them, 6 they became aware of it and gfled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding region. 7 And they were preaching the gospel there.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
