19 v Then Jews from Antioch and Iconium came there; and having persuaded the multitudes, w they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing him to be x dead. 20 However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe. 21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city y and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, Iconium, and Antioch, 22 strengthening the souls of the disciples, z exhorting them to continue in the faith, and saying, a "We must through many tribulations enter the kingdom of God." 23 So when they had b appointed elders in every church, and prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord in whom they had believed.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
