Acts 14:20-21

Context
14:20 But after the disciples had surrounded him, he got up and went back 1  into the city. On 2  the next day he left with Barnabas for Derbe. 3 

Paul and Barnabas Return to Antioch in Syria

14:21 After they had proclaimed the good news in that city and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, 4  to Iconium, 5  and to Antioch. 6 

1 tn Grk “and entered”; the word “back” is not in the Greek text but is implied.

2 tn Grk “And on.” Because of the difference between Greek style, which often begins sentences or clauses with “and,” and English style, which generally does not, καί (kai) has not been translated here.

3 sn Derbe was a city in Lycaonia about 35 mi (60 km) southeast of Lystra. This was the easternmost point of the journey.
