2 And when Paul and Barnabas had 1great dissension and adebate with them, bthe brethren determined that Paul and Barnabas and some others of them should go up to Jerusalem to the capostles and elders concerning this issue.
3 Therefore, being asent on their way by the church, they were passing through both bPhoenicia and Samaria, cdescribing in detail the conversion of the Gentiles, and were bringing great joy to all dthe brethren.
7 After there had been much adebate, Peter stood up and said to them, “Brethren, you know that 1in the early days bGod made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles would hear the word of cthe gospel and believe.
11 “But we believe that we are saved through athe grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are.”
14 “aSimeon has related how God first concerned Himself about taking from among the Gentiles a people for His name.
15 “With this the words of athe Prophets agree, just as it is written,
And I will rebuild the 1tabernacle of David which has fallen,
And I will rebuild its ruins,
And I will restore it,
19 “Therefore it is amy judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles,
22 Then it seemed good to athe apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them to send to bAntioch with Paul and Barnabas—Judas called Barsabbas, and cSilas, leading men among dthe brethren,
23 and they 1sent this letter by them,
31 When they had read it, they rejoiced because of its 1encouragement.
34 [1But it seemed good to Silas to remain there.]
37 Barnabas wanted to take aJohn, called Mark, along with them also.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
