Paul and the Other Apostles
1 Then fourteen years after, I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took with me Titus also.2 And I went up by revelation, and declared unto them that Gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but particularly to them that were the chief, lest by any means I should run, or had run in vain; 3 But neither yet Titus which was with me, though he were a Grecian, was compelled to be circumcised, 4 To wit, for the false brethren which were craftily sent in, and crept in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage. 5 To whom we gave not place by subjection for an hour, that the truth of the Gospel might continue with you. 6 But by them which seemed to be great, I was not taught (whatsoever they were in time passed, I am nothing the better; God accepteth no man's person) for they that are the chief, did add nothing to me above that I had. 7 But contrariwise, when they saw that the Gospel over the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the Gospel over the circumcision was unto Peter; 8 (For he that was mighty by Peter in the Apostleship over the circumcision, was also mighty by me toward the Gentiles.) 9 And when James, and Cephas, and John, knew of the grace that was given unto me, which are counted to be pillars, they gave to me and to Barnabas the right hands of fellowship, that we should preach unto the Gentiles, and they unto the Circumcision, 10 Warning only that we should remember the poor, which thing also I was diligent to do.
