15Afterthesedays we gotready and 1started on our way up to Jerusalem.
Some of 2the disciples from 3Caesareaalsocame with us, taking us to Mnason of 4Cyprus, a 5disciple of longstanding with whom we were to lodge.
17After we arrived in Jerusalem, 6the brethrenreceived us gladly.
And the following day Paulwent in with us to a7James, and all8the elders were present.
After he had greeted them, he 9began to relateone by one the things whichGod had doneamong the Gentilesthrough his 10ministry.
And when they heard it they began 11glorifyingGod ; and they said to him, "You see, brother, howmanybthousands there are among the Jews of those who have believed, and they are all12zealous for the Law ;
and they have been toldabout you, that you are 13teachingall the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsakeMoses, telling them 14not to circumcise their childrennor to cwalk according to 15the customs.
22"What, then, is to be done? They will certainlyhear that you have come.
23"Thereforedothis that we tell you. We have fourmen who d16are under a vow ;
24take them and 17purify yourself along with them, and epay their expensesso that they may 18shave their fheads ; and all will know that there is nothing to the things which they have been toldabout you, but that you yourselfalsowalkorderly, keeping the Law.
"But concerning the Gentiles who have believed, we wrote, 19having decided that they should abstain from gmeatsacrificed to idols and from blood and from what is strangled and from fornication."
26ThenPaulhtook the men, and the nextday, 20purifying himself along with them, 21went into the templegivingnotice of the completion of the days of purification, until the sacrifice was offered for eachone of them.
