Acts 15:5

Context
15:5 But some from the religious party of the Pharisees 1  who had believed stood up and said, “It is necessary 2  to circumcise the Gentiles 3  and to order them to observe 4  the law of Moses.”

1 sn See the note on Pharisee in 5:34.

2 sn The Greek word used here (δεῖ, dei) is a strong term that expresses divine necessity. The claim is that God commanded the circumcision of Gentiles.

3 tn Grk “them”; the referent (the Gentiles) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Or “keep.”
