Acts 12:14 — Acts 13:8

14 And when she recognized Peter’s voice, she did not open the gate for joy, but ran in and reported that Peter was standing before the entry.

15 But they said to her, You are crazy! But she insisted that it was so. And they said, It is his angel.

16 But Peter continued knocking; and when they had opened the gate, they saw him and were beside themselves.

17 And motioning to them with his hand to be silent, he related to them how the Lord had led him out of the prison, and he said, Report these things to James and the brothers. And going out, he went to another place.

18 Now when it became day, there was no small disturbance among the soldiers, they not knowing what had become of Peter.

19 And when Herod searched for him and did not find him, he examined the guards and ordered that they be led off to execution. And he went down from Judea to Caesarea and spent time there.

20 Now he was furious with the Tyrians and Sidonians. And they came to him with one accord; and having persuaded Blastus, the king’s chamberlain, they asked for peace, because their country was fed from the king’s country.

21 And on an appointed day Herod arrayed himself in royal clothing and sat on the judgment seat; and he delivered a public address to them.

22 And the populace cried out, The voice of a god and not of a man!

23 And instantly an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give the glory to God; and he was eaten by worms and expired.

24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.

25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, having completed the dispensing; and they took along with them John, who was surnamed Mark.

1 Now there were in Antioch, in the local church, prophets and teachers: Barnabas and Simeon, who was called Niger, and Lucius the Cyrenian, and Manaen, the foster brother of Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.

2 And as they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, Set apart for Me now Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.

3 Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.

4 They then, having been sent out by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia; and from there they sailed away to Cyprus.

5 And when they were in Salamis, they announced the word of God in the synagogues of the JEWS. And they also had John as their attendant.

6 And when they had passed through the whole island as far as Paphos, they found a certain man, a magician and Jewish false prophet, whose name was Bar-jesus,

7 Who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man; the latter called Barnabas and Saul to him and sought to hear the word of God.

8 But Elymas the magician (for so his name is translated) opposed them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
