Went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia - Both were provinces of Asia Minor: see on Acts 2:10 (note).

His first journey is mentioned Acts 9:26; his second, Acts 11:30; his third, Acts 15:4; and his fourth, Acts 18:22, the place above.

Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia.
While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples
As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God's curse!
