Barnabas and Saul Sent Off
Now a in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: b Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, c Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, d "Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work e to which I have called them."
Then, f having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.
