And the apostles and helders came together for to consider of this matter. And when there had been much edisputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that pa good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe. And God, qwhich knoweth the hearts, rbare them witness, sgiving them the Holy Ghost, teven as he did unto us; And uput no difference between us and them, xpurifying their hearts yby faith. 10 Now therefore why ztempt ye God, ato put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? 11 But we believe that bthrough the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they. 12 Then all the multitude kept silence, and gave audience to Barnabas and Paul, cdeclaring what dmiracles and wonders eGod had wrought among the Gentiles by them.

13 And after they had held their peace, fJames answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me: 14 gSimeon hhath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. 15 And to this agree the words of ithe prophets; as it is written, 16 After this I will return, and kwill build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: 17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things. 18 Known unto God are all his works lfrom the beginning of the world. 19 Wherefore mmy sentence is, that we ntrouble not them, which from among the Gentiles oare turned to God: 20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from ppollutions of idols, and from qfornication, and from rthings strangled, and from rblood. 21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, sbeing read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
