Which they also did
They not only determined, but they put their resolutions into execution, and acted according to a rule which the apostle recommends, ( 2 Corinthians 8:11 ) ( 9:7 )
and sent it to the elders;
to the apostles; for though there were deacons there, yet they chose to send it to them, that they might put it into proper hands to distribute to the necessitous: and this collection they sent
by the hands of Saul and Barnabas;
of this journey to Jerusalem, Paul makes no mention in ( Galatians 1:17-19 Galatians 1:21 ) ( 2:1 ) .
