1 Kwathi e-Ikoniyu bangena kanyekanye esinagogeni labaJuda, bakhuluma kwaze kwakholwa isixuku esikhulu sabaJuda namaGreki.
2 Kepha abaJuda abangakholwanga bavusa abezizwe, babenza nhliziyombi ngakubazalwane.
3 Nokho bahlala isikhathi eside, befundisa ngesibindi ngeNkosi eyafakazela izwi lomusa wayo, ibanika ukuba kwenziwe izibonakaliso nezimangaliso ngezandla zabo.
4 Kepha isixuku somuzi sahlukana phakathi, abanye baba ngakubaJuda nabanye ngakubaphostoli.
5 Kwathi ukuba basukelwe yisidumo sabezizwe nabaJuda kanye nababusi babo sokubaphatha kabi nokubakhanda ngamatshe,
6 bathi sebekwazi lokho, babalekela emizini yaseLikawoniya, iListra neDerbe, nasezweni langakhona,
7 bashumayela khona ivangeli.
8 EListra kwakuhlezi indoda ethile eyisilima ngezinyawo, eyisishosha selokhu yazalwa ngunina, engazange ihambe.
9 Yona yamuzwa uPawulu ekhuluma. Yena eyigqolozela wabona ukuthi inokukholwa kokuba iphiliswe,
10 wathi ngezwi elikhulu: “Sukuma, ume ngezinyawo zakho.” Yayisigxuma, yahamba.
11 Kwathi-ke izixuku zikubona lokho akwenzile uPawulu, zaphakamisa izwi lazo, zathi ngesiLikawoniya: “Onkulunkulu befana nabantu behlele kithi.”
12 UBarnaba bambiza ngokuthi uJupitheri, uPawulu ngokuthi uMerkuriyu, ngokuba kwakunguye owayehola ekukhulumeni.
13 Kepha umpristi kaJupitheri othempeli lakhe liphambi komuzi waletha izinkunzi nemigexo yezimbali ngasemasangweni, wafuna ukubahlabela ekanye nezixuku.
14 Kwathi ukuba bakuzwe lokho abaphostoli oBarnaba noPawulu, baklebhula izingubo zabo, baphonseka phakathi kwesixuku bememeza
15 bethi: “Madoda, nikwenzelani lokhu na? Nathi singabantu abanjengani ngemvelo, sinishumayeza ivangeli ukuba niphenduke kulokho okuyize, niphendukele kuNkulunkulu ophilayo owenza izulu nomhlaba, nolwandle, nakho konke okukukho,
16 othe ngezizukulwane ezidlulileyo wayeka izizwe zonke zihambe ngezindlela zazo.
17 Nokho akayekanga ukuzifakazela ngokwenza okuhle, waninika imvula yasezulwini nezikhathi zenala, egcwalisa izinhliziyo zenu ngokuhle nangokujabula.”
18 Bekusho lokho, baziyekisa kalukhuni izixuku ukuba zingabahlabeli.
19 Kodwa kwafika abaJuda, bevela e-Antiyokiya nase-Ikoniyu; sebezivumisile izixuku bamkhanda uPawulu ngamatshe, bamhudulela ngaphandle komuzi bethi usefile.
20 Kepha kwathi abafundi bembunganyele, wavuka, wangena emzini. Ngangomuso wamuka noBarnaba, baya eDerbe.
21 Sebelishumayele ivangeli kulowo muzi, bezuzile abafundi abaningi, babuyela eListra, nase-Ikoniyu, nase-Antiyokiya,
22 baqinisa imiphefumulo yabafundi bebaluleka ukuba beme ekukholweni, bethi: “Simelwe ukungena embusweni kaNkulunkulu ngezinhlupheko eziningi.”
23 Sebebakhethele amalunga amabandla ngamabandla, bakhuleka bezila ukudla, babanikela eNkosini asebekholwa yiyo.
24 Base bedabula iPhisidiya, baya ePhamfiliya.
25 Sebekhulumile izwi ePherge, behlela e-Ataliya.
26 Basuka lapho ngomkhumbi, baya e-Antiyokiya, lapho babenikelwe khona emseni kaNkulunkulu kulowo msebenzi asebewufezile.
27 Kwathi ukuba bafike, balibutha ibandla, balanda ngakho konke uNkulunkulu akwenzile ngabo nokuthi uvulele nabezizwe isango lokukholwa.
28 Base behlala nabafundi isikhathi esingesincane.
