  • 1. Now  there  were  in  the  church  at  An/och   prophets  and  teachers,  Barnabas,  Simeon  who   was  called  Niger,  Lucius  of  Cyrene,  Manaen  a   lifelong  friend  of  Herod  the  tetrarch,  and  Saul.   While  they  were  worshiping  the  Lord  and   fas/ng,  the  Holy  Spirit  said,  “Set  apart  for  me   Barnabas  and  Saul  for  the  work  to  which  I  have   called  them.”  Then  aHer  fas/ng  and  praying  they   laid  their  hands  on  them  and  sent  them  off.  
  • 2. So,  being  sent  out  by  the  Holy  Spirit,  they  went   down  to  Seleucia,  and  from  there  they  sailed  to   Cyprus.  When  they  arrived  at  Salamis,  they   proclaimed  the  word  of  God  in  the  synagogues  of   the  Jews.  And  they  had  John  to  assist  them.  When   they  had  gone  through  the  whole  island  as  far  as   Paphos,  they  came  upon  a  certain  magician,  a   Jewish  false  prophet  named  Bar-­‐Jesus.  He  was  with   the  proconsul,  Sergius  Paulus,  a  man  of  intelligence,   who  summoned  Barnabas  and  Saul  and  sought  to   hear  the  word  of  God.    
  • 3. But  Elymas  the  magician  (for  that  is  the  meaning  of   his  name)  opposed  them,  seeking  to  turn  the   proconsul  away  from  the  faith.     But  Saul,  who  was  also  called  Paul,  filled  with  the   Holy  Spirit,  looked  intently  at  him  and  said,  “You   son  of  the  devil,  you  enemy  of  all  righteousness,  full   of  all  deceit  and  villainy,  will  you  not  stop  making   crooked  the  straight  paths  of  the  Lord?  And  now,   behold,  the  hand  of  the  Lord  is  upon  you,  and  you   will  be  blind  and  unable  to  see  the  sun  for  a  /me.”   Immediately  mist  and  darkness  fell  upon  him,  and   he  went  about  seeking  people  to  lead  him  by  the   hand.    
  • 4. Then  the  proconsul  believed,  when  he  saw  what   had  occurred,  for  he  was  astonished  at  the   teaching  of  the  Lord.   Now  Paul  and  his  companions  set  sail  from   Paphos  and  came  to  Perga  in  Pamphylia.  And   John  leH  them  and  returned  to  Jerusalem,  but   they  went  on  from  Perga  and  came  to  An/och  in   Pisidia.  And  on  the  Sabbath  day  they  went  into   the  synagogue  and  sat  down.    
  • 5. AHer  the  reading  from  the  Law  and  the   Prophets,  the  rulers  of  the  synagogue  sent  a   message  to  them,  saying,  “Brothers,  if  you  have   any  word  of  encouragement  for  the  people,  say   it.”  So  Paul  stood  up,  and  mo/oning  with  his   hand  said:   “Men  of  Israel  and  you  who  fear  God,  listen.   Acts  13:1-­‐16  (ESV)
