(dehr' bih) Important city in region of Lycaonia in province of Galatia in Asia minor. It is apparently near modern Kerti Huyuk. The residents of Derbe and Lystra spoke a different language from the people to the north in Iconium. Paul visited Derbe on his first missionary journey (Acts 14:6 ), fleeing from Iconium. Persecution in Lystra led to a successful preaching mission in Derbe (Acts 14:20-21 ). On the second journey, Paul returned to Derbe (Acts 16:1 ). He apparently visited again on the third journey (Acts 18:23 ). Paul's fellow minister Gaius was from Derbe (Acts 20:4 ).
