Bible: Acts 14:14-18
14:14 But when the apostles 1 Barnabas and Paul heard about 2 it, they tore 3 their clothes and rushed out 4 into the crowd, shouting, 5 14:15 “Men, why are you doing these things? We too are men, with human natures 6 just like you! We are proclaiming the good news to you, so that you should turn 7 from these worthless 8 things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, 9 the sea, and everything that is in them. 14:16 In 10 past 11 generations he allowed all the nations 12 to go their own ways, 14:17 yet he did not leave himself without a witness by doing good, 13 by giving you rain from heaven 14 and fruitful seasons, satisfying you 15 with food and your hearts with joy.” 16 14:18 Even by saying 17 these things, they scarcely persuaded 18 the crowds not to offer sacrifice to them.
