And having come down to Cesarea having gone up and greeted the church, he went down to Antioch.

And they having passed from Perga, approached Antioch of Pisidia, and having come into the synagogue on the day of the sabbaths, they sat down. And after reading of the law and the prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying, Men, brethren, if the word of encouragement is in you to the people, speak. And Paul having risen, and shaken with the hand, said, Men, Israelites, and ye fearing God, hear ye. read more.
God of this people Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people in sojourning the land of Egypt, and with high arm brought them out of it. And about forty years time he bare them in the desert. And having destroyed seven nations in the land of Chanaan, he gave them to inherit this land by lot. And after these, about four hundred and fifty years he gave judges, even to Samuel the prophet. And thence they desired a king; and God gave them Saul, son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, forty years. And having removed him, he raised up to them David for king; to whom also having testified, he said, I found David of Jesse, a man according to my heart, who shall do all my desires. From the seed of this has God according to promise raised up to Israel a Saviour, Jesus: John having proclaimed before the face of his coming the immersion of repentance to all the people of Israel. And as John completed the course, be said, Whom think ye me to be? I am not. But, behold, he comes after me, whose shoes of the feet I am not worthy to loose. Men, brethren, sons of Abraham's race, and those among you fearing God, to you was the word of this salvation sent. For they dwelling in Jerusalem, and their rulers, not having known him, and the voices of the prophets which being read in every sabbath, having judged, they filled up. And having found no cause of death, they desired Pilate to have him slain. And when they finished all things written concerning him, having taken down from the wood, they put in a tomb. And God raised him from the dead: Who was seen for many days to them having come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses to the people. And we announce good news to you, the promise made to our fathers, For this has God completed to us, their children, having raised up Jesus; as it has also been written in the second Psalms, Thou art my Son; to day have I begotten thee. And that he raised him from the dead, no more about to return to corruption, so he said, That I will give you the holy, faithful things of David. For also in another, he says, Thou shalt not give thy Holy one to see corruption. For David, truly having served his own generation by the will of God, was set to sleep, and was added to his fathers, and saw corruption: But whom God raised up, he saw no corruption. Be it known therefore to you, men, brethren, that for him remission of sins is announced to you. And from all which ye could not be justified by Moses' law, every one believing in him is justified. See ye, therefore, that that spoken by the prophets come not upon you. See, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, which ye would not believe if any recount to you. And the Jews having gone out of the synagogue, the nations besought to have these words spoken in the sabbath between. And the synagogue having been dissolved, many of the Jews and strangers worshipping, followed Paul and Barnabas: who speaking to them, persuaded them to remain in the grace of God. And the next sabbath nearly all the city was gathered together to hear the word of God. And the Jews, having seen the crowds, were filled with envy, and spake against the things said by Paul, contradicting and defaming. And Paul and Barnabas speaking freely, said, To you was it first necessary for the word of God to be spoken: but since ye reject it, and judge yourselves not worthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the nations. For so has the Lord commanded us, I have set thee for a light of the nations, for thee to be for salvation even to the last of the earth. And the nations having rejoiced, honoured the word of the Lord: and they believed, as many as were drawn out for eternal life. And the word of the Lord was conveyed through the whole country. And the Jews urged on the worshipping and distinguished women, and the first men of the city, and they raised up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and they cast them out of their bounds, And they, having shaken off the cloud of the dust of their feet against them, came into Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy, and the Holy Spirit.

Expulsions, sufferings, which were to me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra; what expulsions I endured: and the Lord delivered me from all.

And Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and having persuaded the crowds, and stoned Paul, drew out of the city, supposing him to be dead. And the disciples having surrounded him, having risen, he came into the city: and the morrow he came out with Barnabas to Derbe. And having announced that city the good news, and made disciples sufficient, they returned to Lystra, and Iconium, and Antioch, read more.
And supporting the souls of the disciples, beseeching to remain in the faith, that through many pressures we must come into the kingdom of God.

For if ye have ten thousand preceptors in Christ, but not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus by the good news I begat you.

If to others I am not sent, but surely I am to you: for the seal of my sending are ye in the Lord.


Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and acknowledged by all men: Made manifest that ye are the epistle of Christ served by us, not written with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables made of stone, but in fleshly tables of the heart.





But now without law the justice of God has been made apparent, being testified by the law and by the prophets; And the justice of God by faith of Jesus Christ to all and upon all believing: for there is no distinction:




Or know ye not that the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God Be ye not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites, Nor thieves; nor covetous, nor intoxicated, nor railers, nor rapacious, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And these were some of you: but ye were washed, but ye were consecrated, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.

For once we also were unwise disobedient, deceived, being slaves to eager desires and various pleasures, living in vexation and envy, hated, and hating one another. And when the kindness and philanthropy of our Saviour God was made evident, Not of works in justice which we did; but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and the renovation of the Holy Spirit; read more.
Which he poured out upon us richly by Jesus Christ our Saviour; That justified by his grace, we might be heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Who believed in our report? and to whom was the arm of Jehovah uncovered? He shall come up as a sucking child before him, and as a root out of a land of dryness: no form to him and no decoration; and we shall see him, and no appearance and we shall desire him. He was despised and forsaken of men; a man of griefs and knowing affliction: and as hiding the faces from him; he was despised and we regarded him not read more.
Surely he lifted up our afflictions, and our griefs he carried them: and we reckoned him to be smitten, struck of God, and afflicted. And he being wounded for our transgressions, and crushed from our iniquities; the correction of our peace upon him, and in the marks of his stripes it was healed to us. All we as sheep went astray; we turned a man to his way; and Jehovah caused the iniquity of us all to fall upon him. He was pressed, and he was afflicted, and he will not open his mouth: he was brought as a sheep for the slaughter, and as a sheep before his shearers being dumb and he will not open his mouth. From constraint and from judgment was he taken, and his generation who shall comprehend? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he struck for them. And he will give with the unjust his grave, and with the rich in his deaths, for he did no violence, and no deceit in his mouth. And Jehovah inclined to crash him; piercing him when his soul shall be set a sacrifice for sin, he shall see seed, he shall prolong the days, and the delight of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand. And be shall see of the labor of his soul, he shall be satisfied: by his knowledge my just servant shall justify for many; and he shall bear their iniquities..

For this has God completed to us, their children, having raised up Jesus; as it has also been written in the second Psalms, Thou art my Son; to day have I begotten thee. And that he raised him from the dead, no more about to return to corruption, so he said, That I will give you the holy, faithful things of David. For also in another, he says, Thou shalt not give thy Holy one to see corruption. read more.
For David, truly having served his own generation by the will of God, was set to sleep, and was added to his fathers, and saw corruption: But whom God raised up, he saw no corruption. Be it known therefore to you, men, brethren, that for him remission of sins is announced to you. And from all which ye could not be justified by Moses' law, every one believing in him is justified.

For all have sinned, and failed of the glory of God; Being justified as a gift by his grace by the redemption which is in Christ Jesus:

For yet Christ, we being weak, Recording to the time died for the impious. For scarcely for the just will any one die: yet for the good perhaps some also would venture to die. And God recommends his own love to us, that we yet being sinful, Christ died for us. read more.
Much more then, justified now in his blood, we shall be saved by him from wrath. For if, being enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, reconciled, we shall be saved in his life. And not only, but also boasting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received reconciliation. Therefore, as by one man sin came into the world, and by sin death; and so death passed upon all men, in that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: and sin is not charged, being no law. But death reigned from Adam to Moses, and upon them not having sinned upon the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is the type of him about to be. But not as the fall, so also the favor. For if for the fall of one many died, much more the grace of God, and the gift in grace, of one man, Jesus Christ, has abounded to many. And not as by one having sinned, the gift: for truly the judgment of one to condemnation, but the favor of many falls to justification. For if by the fall of one, death reigned by one; much more they receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of justice in life shall reign by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the fall of one for all men to condemnation; so also by the justification of one for all men to justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were constituted sinful, so also by the obedience of one shall many be constituted just.

Knowing that a man is not justified from the works of the law, but through faith of Jesus Christ, and we believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified from the faith of Christ, and not from the works of the law: therefore from the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. And it; seeking to be justified in Christ, we were found also ourselves sinners, is Christ therefore the servant of sin? It may not be. For if what I destroy, these I build again, I unite myself with the transgressor. read more.
For I through the law died to the law, that. I might live to God. I am crucified with Christ: and I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in we: and what I now live in the flesh I live in the faith of the Son of God, having loved me, and given himself for me.

Then he said, Behold, I am here to do, O God, thy will. He takes away the first, that he might set up the second. In which will we are consecrated by the bringing in of the body of Jesus Christ once. And truly every priest has stood daily, serving and bringing in many times the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: read more.
But this, having brought in one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; As to the rest, awaiting till his enemies be put a footstool of his feet. For by one offering has he perfected forever the consecrated.






Therefore as by the fall of one for all men to condemnation; so also by the justification of one for all men to justification of life.



What then shall we say? That the nations, not following justice, overtook justice, and the justice of faith.




For this has God completed to us, their children, having raised up Jesus; as it has also been written in the second Psalms, Thou art my Son; to day have I begotten thee. And that he raised him from the dead, no more about to return to corruption, so he said, That I will give you the holy, faithful things of David. For also in another, he says, Thou shalt not give thy Holy one to see corruption. read more.
For David, truly having served his own generation by the will of God, was set to sleep, and was added to his fathers, and saw corruption: But whom God raised up, he saw no corruption. Be it known therefore to you, men, brethren, that for him remission of sins is announced to you. And from all which ye could not be justified by Moses' law, every one believing in him is justified.

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it has been written, Cursed every one who remains not in all written in the book of the law to do them. And that none is justified in the law before God, is manifest: for, The just shall live of faith.

And wilt thou know, O empty man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, having brought up Isaac his son upon the altar Thou seest that faith cooperated with his works, and from works was faith perfected. read more.
And the writing was completed, saying, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him for justice: and he was called the Friend of God. Therefore ye see that man is justified from works, and not from faith alone.


In Jehovah shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

And we know that to them loving God, all things work together for good, to them being called according to the setting up. For whom he before knew, he also before determined of the form of the image of his Son, for him to be first born in many brethren. And whom he before determined, these he also called: and whom he called, these he also justified: and whom he justified, these he also glorified.

And from all which ye could not be justified by Moses' law, every one believing in him is justified.















Therefore now no condemnation to them in Christ Jesus, walking not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus freed me from the law of sin and death. For the impossibility of the law, in that it was weak by the flesh, God having sent his own Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: read more.
That the justification of the law be filled up in us, not walking according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.



For this has God completed to us, their children, having raised up Jesus; as it has also been written in the second Psalms, Thou art my Son; to day have I begotten thee.

As Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him for justice. Know ye therefore that they of faith, these are sons of Abraham. And the writing, foreseeing that of faith God justifies the nations, announced beforehand the good news to Abraham, That in thee shall all nations be praised. read more.
So that they of faith are praised with faithful Abraham. For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it has been written, Cursed every one who remains not in all written in the book of the law to do them.

For the law having a shadow of good things about to be, not the same image of the things, with these sacrifices which they bring in yearly in continuance never can render perfect them coming thereto. For would they not have ceased to be brought in? because they serving have no more consciousness of sins, once purified. But in these, a reminding of sins yearly. read more.
For the blood of bulls and he-goats cannot take away sins. Wherefore coming into the world, he says, Sacrifice and offering then wouldest not, but a body hast thou adjusted to me: And with whole burnt offering for sin wast thou not contented. Then said I, Behold, I am here (in the head of the book it was written of me,) O God, to do thy will. Farther back, saying, That sacrifice and bringing in and whole burnt offerings and for sin thou wouldest not, neither wert contented with; which are brought in according to law; Then he said, Behold, I am here to do, O God, thy will. He takes away the first, that he might set up the second. In which will we are consecrated by the bringing in of the body of Jesus Christ once. And truly every priest has stood daily, serving and bringing in many times the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this, having brought in one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; As to the rest, awaiting till his enemies be put a footstool of his feet. For by one offering has he perfected forever the consecrated. And also the Holy Spirit testifies to us: for after having said before,


And it was in Iconium according to the same, went they into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude of the Jews and also of Greeks believed.

And they having passed from Perga, approached Antioch of Pisidia, and having come into the synagogue on the day of the sabbaths, they sat down.

And he began to speak freely in the synagogue: and . Priscilla and Aquila having heard him, took him, and set forth to him the way of God more accurately.

And he came to Nazareth where he was brought up, and he went in, as was the custom to him in the day of the sabbaths, into the assembly, and stood up to read.

And quickly in the synagogues he proclaimed Jesus, that he is the Son of God.

And they were struck with amazement at his teaching: for his word was with power.

For Moses of ancient generations has them proclaiming him in every city, being read in the synagogues in every sabbath.

And having passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And according to custom to Paul, he went in to them, and upon three sabbaths discussed with them from the writings, Opening and setting before, that it was necessary for Christ to suffer, and rise from, the dead; and that this is Christ Jesus, whom I announce to you.
