New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. 1 Fourteen years later I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also.
2 I went up in response to a revelation. Then I laid before them (though only in a private meeting with the acknowledged leaders) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure that I was not running, or had not 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 even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. 3 Yet not even Titus, who was with me, was compelled to be circumcised, even though he was a Greek.
4 But because of false believers secretly brought in, who slipped in to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus, so 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 we did not submit to them even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might always remain 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 And from those who were supposed to be acknowledged leaders (what they actually were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)—those leaders contributed 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 On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel for the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel for the circumcised 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 he who worked through Peter making him an apostle to the circumcised also worked through me in sending me to 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, who were acknowledged pillars, recognized the grace that had been given to me, they gave to Barnabas and me the right hand of fellowship, agreeing that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 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 one thing, that we remember the poor, which was actually what I was eager to do. 10 All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.
