1 Kwathi ke eIkoniyo, bangena kunye endlwini yesikhungu yamaYuda, bathetha ngokokude kukholwe inkitha enkulu yamaYuda kwanamaGrike.

4 Yahlulelana ke inkoliso yomzi; inxenye yangakumaYuda, inxenye yangakubapostile.
5 Bathe ke, bakubon’ ukuba abeentlanga nabangamaYuda, kunye nabaphathi bawo, bangxamele ukubaphatha kakubi, babagibisele ngamatye:
6 bakuqiqa oko bona, basabela emizini yelaseLikawoni, iListra neDerbhe, nakuloo mimandla;

8 Kwakuhleli ke ndoda ithile eListra, ife iinyawo, isisiqhwala kwasesizalweni sonina, ingazanga ihambe.
9 Yona leyo yayimva uPawulos ethetha; owathi, eqwalasele kuyo, ebona ukuba inokholo lokusindiswa,
10 wathi ngezwi elikhulu, Suka, ume ngeenyawo zakho, uthi nkqo; yesuka umtsi, yahambahamba.
11 Ke kaloku iindimbane, zakukubona oko akwenzileyo uPawulos, zaphakamisa izwi lazo ngokwesiLikawoni, zisithi, Oothixo bahlile beza kuthi, befana nabantu.
12 Kanjalo zazimbiza uBharnabhas ngokuthi nguZeyus, noPawulos ngokuthi nguHermes, ekubeni ke ibinguye obesisithethi.
13 Kuthe ke umbingeleli kaZeyus, obephambi komzi wabo, wazisa iinkunzi zeenkomo nezidanga zeentyantyambo emasangweni, wafuna ukubingelela, kunye neendimbane.
14 Bekuvile ke oko abapostile, ooBharnabhas noPawulos, bazikrazula iingubo zabo, batsiba phakathi kwendimbane, bedanduluka,
15 besithi, Madoda, yini na ukuba nenjenje? Nathi singabantu abeva enikuvayo nina; sinishumayeza iindaba ezilungileyo zokuba nibuye kwaba thixo bangento, nibuyele kuThixo ophilileyo, owenza izulu nomhlaba nolwandle, neento zonke ezikwezo zinto;
16 owathi ezizukulwaneni ezadlulayo waziyeka zonke iintlanga, ukuba zihambe ngezazo iindlela;
17 kanti ke noko akayekanga ukuzingqinela, esenza okulungileyo, esinika imvula evela ezulwini, namaxesha aneendyebo, ezanelisa iintliziyo zethu ngokudla nangemihlali.
18 Besitsho, kwaba ngenkankulu ukuzidambisa iindimbane, ukuba zingabingeleli kubo.
19 Ke kaloku kwafika amaYuda evela kwa-Antiyokwe naseIkoniyo, azixhokonxa iindimbane, amxuluba ngamatye uPawulos, amrholela ngaphandle komzi, eba ufile.
20 Uthe, bakubon’ ukuba bamngqongile ke abafundi, wavuka waya kungena kuwo umzi. Ngengomso waphuma enoBharnabhas, waya eDerbhe.
21 Bewushumayezile loo mzi iindaba ezilungileyo, benze nabafundi abaneleyo, babuya beza eListra, naseIkoniyo, nakwa-Antiyokwe,
22 besomeleza imiphefumlo yabafundi, bebavuselela ukuba bahlale behleli elukholweni; besithi, Simelwe kukuphumela ezimbandezelweni ezininzi, ukungena ebukumkanini bukaThixo.
23 Bathe ke bakuba benyule amadoda amakhulu kwibandla ngebandla, bethandazile kunye nokuzila ukudla, bawayaleza eNkosini awayekholwe kuyo.
24 Betyhutyhe elasePisidi, bafika kwelasePamfili.
25 Bathi, belithethile ilizwi ePerga; behla baya kwa-Atali.
26 Besuka khona apho ngomkhombe, baya kwa-Antiyokwe, apho babenikelwe khona elubabalweni lukaThixo, ukuba baye emsebenzini, lo ke bawufezileyo.
27 Befikile ke, balihlanganisa ibandla, balibikela oko zingako izinto awazenzayo uThixo enabo, nokokuba iintlanga wazivulela ucango lokholo.
28 Balibala ke khona apho ixesha elingelincinane, ndawonye nabafundi.
