1And some men came down from Judea [and] began teaching the brothers, "Unless you are circumcised according to the custom [prescribed] by Moses, you cannot be saved.

2And [after] there was no little strife and debate by Paul and Barnabas against them, they appointed Paul and Barnabas and some others from among them to go up to the apostles and elders in Jerusalem concerning this issue.

3So they were sent on their way by the church, [and] passed through both Phoenicia and Samaria, telling in detail the conversion of the Gentiles and bringing great joy to all the brothers.

4And [when they] arrived in Jerusalem, they were received by the church and the apostles and the elders, and reported all that God had done with them.

5But some of those who had believed from the party of the Pharisees stood up, saying, "It is necessary to circumcise them and to command [them] to observe the law of Moses!

6Both the apostles and the elders assembled to deliberate concerning this matter.

7And [after] there was much debate, Peter stood up [and] said to them, "Men [and] brothers, you know that in the early days God chose among you through my mouth [that] the Gentiles should hear the message of the gospel and believe.

8And God, who knows the heart, testified to them [by] giving [them] the Holy Spirit, just as he also [did] to us.

9And he made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by faith.

10So now why are you putting God to the test [by] placing on the neck of the disciples a yoke that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?

11But we believe [we] will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus in _the same_ way those also [are].

12And the whole group became silent and listened to Barnabas and Paul describing all the signs and wonders God had done among the Gentiles through them.

13And after they had stopped speaking, James answered, saying, "Men [and] brothers, listen to me!

14Simeon has described how God first concerned himself to take from among the Gentiles a people for his name.

15And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written:

16’After these [things] I will return and build up again the tent of David that has fallen, and the [parts] of it that had been torn down I will build up again and will restore it,

17so that the rest of humanity may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles _who are called by my name_, says the Lord, who makes these [things]

18known from of old.’

19Therefore I conclude we should not cause difficulty for those from among the Gentiles who turn to God,

20but we should write a letter to them to abstain from the pollution of idols and from sexual immorality and from what has been strangled and from blood.

21For Moses has those who proclaim him in every city from ancient generations, [because he] is read aloud in the synagogues on every Sabbath.

22Then it seemed best to the apostles and the elders, together with the whole church, to send men chosen from among them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas—Judas who was called Barsabbas and Silas, men [who were] leaders among the brothers—

23writing [this letter] _to be delivered by them_: The apostles and the elders, brothers. To the brothers [who are] from among the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia. Greetings!

24Because we have heard that some have gone out from among us—to whom we gave no orders—[and] have thrown you into confusion by words upsetting your _minds_,

25it seemed best to us, _having reached a unanimous decision_, [and] having chosen men, to send [them] to you together with our dear friends Barnabas and Paul,

26men who have risked their lives on behalf of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

27Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, and they will report the same [things] by word of mouth.

28For it seemed best to the Holy Spirit and to us to place on you no greater burden except these necessary things:

29[that you] abstain from food sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. [If you] keep yourselves from _these things_ you will do well. Farewell.

30So [when] they were sent off, they came down to Antioch, and [after] calling together the community, they delivered the letter.

31And [when they] read [it] aloud, they rejoiced at the encouragement.

32Both Judas and Silas, who were also prophets themselves, encouraged and strengthened the brothers by a long message.

33And [after] spending [some] time, they were sent away in peace from the brothers to those who had sent them.


35But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch teaching and proclaiming the word of the Lord with many others also.

36And after some days, Paul said to Barnabas, "Come then,[let us] return [and] visit the brothers in every town in which we proclaimed the word of the Lord, [to see] how they are [doing].

37Now Barnabas wanted to take John who was called Mark along also,

38but Paul held the opinion they should not take this one along, who departed from them in Pamphylia and did not accompany them in the work.

39And a sharp disagreement took place, so that they separated from one another. And Barnabas took along Mark [and] sailed away to Cyprus,

40but Paul chose Silas [and] departed, [after] being commended to the grace of the Lord by the brothers.

41And he traveled through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches.
