||The brothers who were at Lystra and Iconium rendered good testimony to him.
||Paul wanted this man to travel with him, and taking him, he circumcised him, because of the Jews who were in those places. For they all knew that his father was a Gentile.
||And as they were traveling through the cities, they delivered to them the dogmas to be kept, which were decreed by the Apostles and elders who were at Jerusalem.
||And certainly, the Churches were being strengthened in faith and were increasing in number every day.
||Then, while crossing through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the Word in Asia.
||But when they had arrived in Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not permit them.
||Then, when they had crossed through Mysia, they descended to Troas.
||And a vision in the night was revealed to Paul of a certain man of Macedonia, standing and pleading with him, and saying: “Cross into Macedonia and help us!”
||Then, after he saw the vision, immediately we sought to set out for Macedonia, having been assured that God had called us to evangelize to them.
