Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me.
I went up because of a revelation and set before them (though privately before those 1who seemed influential) the gospel that 2I proclaim among the Gentiles, 3in order to make sure I was not running or had not 4run in vain.
But even Titus, who was with me, 5was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek.
46Yet because of false brothers secretly brought in--who 7slipped in to spy out 8our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, 9so that they might bring us into slavery--
to them we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that 10the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.
And from those 11who seemed to be influential (what they were makes no difference to me; 12God shows no partiality)--those, I say, who seemed influential 13added nothing to me.
On the contrary, when they saw that I had been 14entrusted with 15the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel to the circumcised
(for he who worked through Peter for his apostolic ministry to the circumcised worked also through me for mine to the Gentiles),
and when James and Cephas and John, 16who seemed to be 17pillars, perceived the 18grace that was given to me, they 19gave the right hand of fellowship to Barnabas and me, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.
Only, they asked us to remember the poor, 20the very thing I was eager to do.
