And certainG5100 men which cameG2718 downG2718 from JudaeaG2449 taughtG1321 the brothers,G80 and said, ExceptG3362 you be circumcisedG4059 after the mannerG1485 of Moses,G3475 you cannotG3756 G1410 be saved.G4982
When thereforeG3767 PaulG3972 and BarnabasG921 hadG1096 noG3756 smallG3641 dissensionG4714 and disputationG4803 with them, they determinedG5021 that PaulG3972 and Barnabas,G921 and certainG5100 otherG243 of them, should goG305 up to JerusalemG2419 to the apostlesG652 and eldersG4245 aboutG4012 thisG5127 question.G2213
And being broughtG4311 on their wayG4311 by the church,G1577 they passedG1330 throughG1330 PheniceG5403 and Samaria,G4540 declaringG1555 the conversionG1995 of the Gentiles:G1484 and they causedG4160 greatG3173 joyG5479 to allG3956 the brothers.G80
And when they were comeG3854 to Jerusalem,G2419 they were receivedG588 of the church,G1577 and of the apostlesG652 and elders,G4245 and they declaredG312 allG3745 things that GodG2316 had doneG4160 with them.
But there roseG1817 up certainG5100 of the sectG139 of the PhariseesG5330 which believed,G4100 saying,G3004 That it was needfulG1163 to circumciseG4059 them, and to commandG3853 them to keepG5083 the lawG3551 of Moses.G3475
And the apostlesG652 and eldersG4245 cameG4863 togetherG4863 for to considerG1492 of thisG5127 matter.G3056
And when there had beenG1096 muchG4183 disputing,G4803 PeterG4074 roseG450 up, and saidG2036 to them, MenG435 and brothers,G80 you knowG1987 how that a good whileG2250 agoG575 GodG2316 madeG1586 choiceG1586 amongG1722 us, that the GentilesG1484 by my mouthG4750 should hearG191 the wordG3056 of the gospel,G2098 and believe.G4100
And God,G2316 which knowsG2589 the hearts,G2589 boreG3140 them witness,G3140 givingG1325 them the HolyG40 Ghost,G4151 evenG2532 as he did to us;
And putG1252 noG3762 differenceG1252 betweenG3342 us and them, purifyingG2511 their heartsG2588 by faith.G4102
NowG3568 thereforeG3767 whyG5101 temptG3985 you God,G2316 to putG2007 a yokeG2218 on the neckG5137 of the disciples,G3101 whichG3739 neitherG3777 our fathersG3962 norG3777 we were ableG2480 to bear?G941
But we believeG4100 that throughG1223 the graceG5485 of the LORDG2962 JesusG2424 ChristG5547 we shall be saved,G4982 evenG2548 as they.
ThenG1161 allG3956 the multitudeG4128 keptG4601 silence,G4601 and gave audienceG191 to BarnabasG921 and Paul,G3972 declaringG1834 whatG3745 miraclesG4592 and wondersG5059 GodG2316 had workedG4160 amongG1722 the GentilesG1484 by them.
And afterG3326 they had heldG4601 their peace,G4601 JamesG2385 answered,G611 saying,G3004 MenG435 and brothers,G80 listenG191 to me:
SimeonG4826 has declaredG1834 howG2531 GodG2316 at the firstG4412 did visitG1980 the Gentiles,G1484 to takeG2983 out of them a peopleG2992 for his name.G3686
And to thisG5129 agreeG4856 the wordsG3056 of the prophets;G4396 as it is written,G1125
AfterG3326 thisG5023 I will return,G390 and will buildG456 againG456 the tabernacleG4633 of David,G1138 whichG3588 is fallenG4098 down; and I will buildG456 againG456 the ruinsG2679 thereof,G846 and I will setG461 it up:
That the residueG2645 of menG444 might seekG1567 afterG1567 the Lord,G2962 and allG3956 the Gentiles,G1484 on whomG3739 my nameG3686 is called,G1941 saidG3004 the Lord,G2962 whoG3588 doesG4160 allG3956 theseG5023 things.
KnownG1110 to GodG2316 are allG3956 his worksG2041 from the beginning of the world.G165
WhyG1352 my sentenceG2919 is, that we troubleG3926 not them, whichG3588 from amongG575 the GentilesG1484 are turnedG1994 to God:G2316
But that we writeG1989 to them, that they abstainG567 from pollutionsG234 of idols,G1497 and from fornication,G4202 and from things strangled,G4156 and from blood.G129
For MosesG3475 of oldG744 timeG1074 hasG2192 in everyG2596 cityG4172 them that preachG2784 him, being readG314 in the synagoguesG4864 everyG3956 sabbathG4521 day.
ThenG5119 pleasedG1380 it the apostlesG652 and elders G4245with the wholeG3650 church,G1577 to sendG3992 chosenG1586 menG435 of their own company to AntiochG490 with PaulG3972 and Barnabas;G921 namely, JudasG2455 surnamedG1941 Barsabas G923and Silas,G4609 chiefG2233 menG435 amongG1722 the brothers:G80
And they wroteG1125 letters by them after thisG3592 manner;G3592 The apostlesG652 and eldersG4245 and brothersG80 send greetingG5463 to the brothersG80 whichG3588 are of the GentilesG1484 in AntiochG490 and SyriaG4947 and Cilicia.G2791
For as muchG1894 as we have heard,G191 that certainG5100 which wentG1831 out from us have troubledG5015 you with words,G3056 subvertingG384 yourG5216 souls,G5590 saying,G3004 You must be circumcised,G4059 and keepG5083 the law:G3551 to whomG3739 we gaveG1291 noG3756 such commandment:G1291
It seemedG1380 good to us, being assembledG1096 with oneG3661 accord,G3661 to sendG3992 chosenG1586 menG435 to you with our belovedG27 BarnabasG921 and Paul,G3972
MenG444 that have hazardedG3860 their livesG5590 for the nameG3686 of our LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ.G5547
We have sentG649 thereforeG3767 JudasG2455 and Silas,G4609 whoG846 shall alsoG2532 tellG518 you the sameG846 things by mouth.G3056
For it seemedG1380 good to the HolyG40 Ghost,G4151 and to us, to layG2007 on you noG3367 greaterG4119 burdenG922 thanG4133 theseG5130 necessaryG1876 things;
That you abstainG567 from meats offeredG1494 to idols,G1494 and from blood,G129 and from things strangled,G4156 and from fornication:G4202 from whichG3739 if you keepG1301 yourselves,G1438 you shall doG4238 well.G2095 FareG4517 you well.G2095
SoG3767 when they were dismissed,G630 they cameG2064 to Antioch:G490 and when they had gatheredG4863 the multitudeG4128 together,G4863 they deliveredG1929 the letter:G1992
Which when they had read,G314 they rejoicedG5463 for the consolation.G3874
And JudasG2455 and Silas,G4609 beingG5607 prophetsG4396 alsoG2532 themselves,G846 exhortedG3870 the brothersG80 with manyG4183 words,G3056 and confirmedG1991 them.
And after they had tarriedG4160 there a space,G5550 they were letG630 goG630 in peaceG1515 from the brothersG80 to the apostles.
Notwithstanding it pleasedG1380 SilasG4609 to abideG1961 thereG847 still.
PaulG3972 alsoG1161 and BarnabasG921 continuedG1304 in Antioch,G490 teachingG1321 and preachingG2097 the wordG3056 of the Lord,G2962 with manyG4183 othersG2087 also.G2532
And someG5100 daysG2250 afterG3326 PaulG3972 saidG2036 to Barnabas,G921 Let us goG1994 againG1994 and visitG1980 our brothersG80 in everyG3956 cityG4172 whereG1722 G3739 we have preachedG2605 the wordG3056 of the LORD,G2962 and see howG4459 they do.G2192
And BarnabasG921 determinedG1011 to takeG4838 with them John,G2491 whoseG3588 surnameG2564 was Mark.G3138
But PaulG3972 thought not goodG515 to takeG4838 him with them, whoG3588 departedG868 from them from Pamphylia,G3828 and wentG4905 not with them to the work.G2041
And the contentionG3948 was soG5620 sharp between them, that they departedG673 asunderG673 oneG240 from the other:G240 and soG5037 BarnabasG921 tookG3880 Mark,G3138 and sailedG1602 to Cyprus;G2954
And PaulG3972 choseG1951 Silas,G4609 and departed,G1831 being recommendedG3860 by the brothersG80 to the graceG5485 of God.G2316
And he wentG1330 throughG1352 SyriaG4947 and Cilicia,G2791 confirmingG1991 the churches.G1577
