1 Then after fourteen years a I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and also took Titus with me. 2 And I went up 1 by revelation, and communicated to them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but b privately to those who were of reputation, lest by any means c I might run, or had run, in vain. 3 Yet not even Titus who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised. 4 And this occurred because of d false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our e liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, f that they might bring us into bondage), 5 to whom we did not yield submission even for an hour, that g the truth of the gospel might continue with you. 6 But from those h who seemed to be something - whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; i God 2 shows personal favoritism to no man - for those who seemed to be something j added nothing to me. 7 But on the contrary, k when they saw that the gospel for the uncircumcised l had been committed to me, as the gospel for the circumcised was to Peter 8 (for He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the m circumcised n also o worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles), 9 and when James, 3 Cephas, and John, who seemed to be p pillars, perceived q the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, r that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 They desired only that we should remember the poor, s the very thing which I also was eager to do.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
