THE ACTS, 11, 12.


1 Peter, being accused for going in to the Gen
tiles, 5 maketh his defence, 18 which is ac-

cepted. 19 The gospel being spread into Phenice,
and Cyprus, and Antioch, Barnabas is sent to
confirm them. 26 The disciples there are first
called Christians, They send relief to the
brethren in Judæa in time of famine.

were in that Gen-
tiles had also received the word of God.
2 And when Peter was come up to
Jerusalem, they that were of the cir-
cumcision contended with him,

3 Saying. Thou wentest in to men un-
circumcised, and didst eat with them.
4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from
the beginning, and expounded it by
order unto them, saying,

5 I was in the city of Joppa praying:
and in a trance I saw a vision, A cer-
tain vessel descend, as it had been a
great sheet, let down from heaven by
four corners; and it came even to me:
6 Upon the which when I had fastened
mine eyes, I considered, and saw four-
footed beasts of the earth, and wild
beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of
the air.

7 And I heard a voice saying unto me,
Arise, Peter; slay and eat.

8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.

9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought f he saw a vision.

10 When they were past the first and

the second ward, they came unto the
iron gate that leadeth unto the city;
9 which opened to them of his own ac-
cord: and they went out ß, and passed
on through one street; and forthwith
the angel departed from him.

11 And when Peter was come to him-
self, he said, Now I know of a surety,
that the Lord hath sent his angel,
and hath delivered me out of the hand
of Herod, and from all the expectation
of the people of the Jews.

12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearke named Rhoda.

14 And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate 8.

15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.

16 But Peter continued knocking and
when they had opened the door, and saw
him, they were astonished.

17 But he, beckoning unto them with
the hand to hold their peace, declared
unto them how the Lord had brought
him out of the prison. And he said. Go
shew these things unto James, and to
the brethren.
he departed, and
went into another place.
18 Now as soon as it was day, there
was no small stir among the soldiers,
what was become of Peter.

19 And when Herod had sought for him,
and found him not, he examined the
keepers, and commanded that they should
be put to death. And he went down
from Judæa to Cæsarea, and there a-

brought up with Herod the tetrarch,
and Saul.

4 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Selencia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.

5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.

6 And when they had gone through the
Bisle unto Paphos, they found a cer-

Greek dissension ariseth


touching circumcision. Anno 4 And when they were come to Jeru this manner; The apostles and Belders Anno DOMINI salem, they were received of the church, and brethren B send greeting unto the DOMINI and of the apostles and elders, and they brethren which are of the Gentiles in declared all things that God had done Antioch and Syria and Cilicia: with them.



5 But there rose up certain of the sect
of the Pharisees which believed, saying,
That it was needful to circumcise them,
and to command them to keep the law
of Moses.

24 Forasmuch as we have heard, that
certain which went out from us have ver. 1.
troubled you with words, subverting your
souls, Bsaying, Ye must be circumcised,
and keep the law 8: to whom we gave
no such commandment:

Gal. 2. 4.

Tit. 1.10,11.

25 It seemed good unto us, being as-
sembled with one accord, to send
chosen men unto you with our beloved
Barnabas and Paul,

6 And the apostles and elders came
together for to consider of this matter.
7 And when there had been much dis-
puting, Peter rose up, and said unto
them, Men and brethren, ye know how
that a good while ago God made choice
among Bus B, that the Gentiles by my
mouth should hear the word of the gos-
pel, and believe.

26 Men that have hazarded their lives ch. 13. 50.

for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
27 We have sent therefore Judas and
Silas, who shall also tell you the same

8 And God, which knoweth the hearts,
bare them witness, giving them the Holy
Ghost, even as he did unto us;

them, "purifying their hearts by faith.
10 Now therefore why tempt ye God, to
put a yoke upon the neck of the dis-
ciples, which neither our fathers nor we
were able to bear?

11 But we believe that through the
grace of the Lord Jesus B Christß we
shall be saved, even as they.

13 And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:



14 8 Simeon 8 hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. 15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,

16 After this I will return, and will build again the 2 tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:

21 For Moses of old time hath in every

22 Then pleased it the apostles and
elders, with the whole church, to send
chosen men of their own company to An-
tioch with Paul and Barnabas; namely,
Judas surnamed B Barsabas 8, and Silas,
chief men among the brethren:

23 And they wrote letters by them after

17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world B.

19 Wherefore "my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned3 to God:

28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;

30 So when they were dismissed, they B came B to Antioch: and when they had gathered the multitude together, they delivered the epistle :

31 Which when they had read, they re-
joiced for the consolation.

32 And Judas and Silas, being prophets
also themselves, exhorted the brethren & ch. 14. 22.

36 And some days after Paul said un-
to Barnabas, Let us go again and visit
our brethren in every city where
have preached the word of the Lord, and
see how they do.


37 And Barnabas determined to take with them m John, whose surname was Mark.

38 But Paul thought not good to take
him with them, who departed from
them from Pamphylia, and went not with
them to the work.

39 And the contention was so sharp be-
tween them, that they departed asunder
one from the other and so Barnabas
took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;
40 And Paul chose Silas, and departed,
