Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking along Titus also. 1 Fourteen years later I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also.
2 Now I went up [there] because of a revelation and laid out to them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles, but in private to the influential people, lest somehow I was running, or had run, in vain. 2 I went in response to a revelation and set before them the gospel that I preach among the Gentiles. But I did this privately to those who seemed to be leaders, for fear that I was running or had run my race in vain.
3 But not even Titus [who was] with me, [although] he was a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised. 3 Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek.
4 Now [this was] because of the false brothers secretly brought in, who slipped in to spy out our freedom that we have in Christ Jesus, in order that they might enslave us, 4 [This matter arose] because some false brothers had infiltrated our ranks to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus and to make us slaves.
5 to whom not even for an hour did we yield in subjection, in order that the truth of the gospel might remain continually with you. 5 We did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might remain with you.
6 But from those {who were influential} (whatever they were, [it makes] no difference to me, {God does not show partiality})--for those who were influential added nothing to me. 6 As for those who seemed to be important--whatever they were makes no difference to me; God does not judge by external appearance--those men added nothing to my message.
7 But these, [when they] saw that I had been entrusted [with] the gospel to the uncircumcision, just as Peter to the circumcision 7 On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the task of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, just as Peter had been to the Jews.
8 (for the one who was at work through Peter for [his] apostleship to the circumcision was at work also through me for the Gentiles), 8 For God, who was at work in the ministry of Peter as an apostle to the Jews, was also at work in my ministry as an apostle to the Gentiles.
9 and [when] James and Cephas and John--those thought to be pillars--acknowledged the grace given to me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right [hand] of fellowship, in order that we [should go] to the Gentiles and they to the circumcision. 9 James, Peter and John, those reputed to be pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the Jews.
10 [They asked] only that we should remember the poor, the very thing I was also eager to do. 10 All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.
