Pisidia


Pisid’ia (pitchy) was a district in Asia Minor north of Pamphylia, and reached to and was partly included in Phrygia. Thus Antioch in Pisidia was sometimes called a Phrygian town. St. Paul passed through Pisidia twice, with Barnabas, on the first missionary journey, i.e., both in going from Perga to Iconium, Acts 13:13, 14, 51, and in returning. Acts 14:21, 24, 25; comp. 2 Tim. 3:11. It is probable also that he traversed the northern part of the district, with Silas and Timotheus, on the second missionary journey, Acts 16:6; but the word Pisidia does not occur except in reference to the former journey.
