Acts 15:12-31

Then
<1161>
all
<3956>
the multitude
<4128>
kept silence
<4601> (5656)_,
and
<2532>
gave audience
<191> (5707)
to Barnabas
<921>
and
<2532>
Paul
<3972>_,
declaring
<1834> (5740)
what
<3745>
miracles
<4592>
and
<2532>
wonders
<5059>
God
<2316>
had wrought
<4160> (5656)
among
<1722>
the Gentiles
<1484>
by
<1223>
them
<846>_.
And
<1161>
after
<3326>
they had held
<4601> (0)
their
<846>
peace
<4601> (5658)_,
James
<2385>
answered
<611> (5662)_,
saying
<3004> (5723)_,
Men
<435>
[and] brethren
<80>_,
hearken
<191> (5657)
unto me
<3450>_:
Simeon
<4826>
hath declared
<1834> (5662)
how
<2531>
God
<2316>
at the first
<4412>
did visit
<1980> (5662)
the Gentiles
<1484>_,
to take
<2983> (5629)
out of
<1537>
them a people
<2992>
for
<1909>
his
<846>
name
<3686>_.
And
<2532>
to this
<5129>
agree
<4856> (5719)
the words
<3056>
of the prophets
<4396>_;
as
<2531>
it is written
<1125> (5769)_,
After
<3326>
this
<5023>
I will return
<390> (5692)_,
and
<2532>
will build again
<456> (5692)
the tabernacle
<4633>
of David
<1138>_,
which
<3588>
is fallen down
<4098> (5761)_;
and
<2532>
I will build again
<456> (5692)
the ruins
<2679> (5772)
thereof
<846>_,
and
<2532>
I will set
<461> (0)
it
<846>
up
<461> (5692)_:
That
<3704> <302>
the residue
<2645>
of men
<444>
might seek after
<1567> (5661)
the Lord
<2962>_,
and
<2532>
all
<3956>
the Gentiles
<1484>_,
upon
<1909>
whom
<3739>
my
<3450>
name
<3686>
is called
<1941> (5769) <1909> <846>_,
saith
<3004> (5719)
the Lord
<2962>_,
who
<3588>
doeth
<4160> (5723)
all
<3956>
these things
<5023>_.
Known
<1110>
unto God
<2316>
are
<2076> (5748)
all
<3956>
his
<846>
works
<2041>
from
<575>
the beginning of the world
<165>_.
Wherefore
<1352>
my
<1473>
sentence is
<2919> (5719)_,
that we trouble
<3926> (5721)
not
<3361>
them, which
<3588>
from among
<575>
the Gentiles
<1484>
are turned
<1994> (5723)
to
<1909>
God
<2316>_:
But
<235>
that we write
<1989> (5658)
unto them
<846>_,
that they abstain
<567> (5733)
from
<575>
pollutions
<234>
of idols
<1497>_,
and
<2532>
[from] fornication
<4202>_,
and
<2532>
[from] things strangled
<4156>_,
and
<2532>
[from] blood
<129>_.
For
<1063>
Moses
<3475>
of
<1537>
old
<744>
time
<1074>
hath
<2192> (5719)
in every
<2596>
city
<4172>
them that preach
<2784> (5723)
him
<846>_,
being read
<314> (5746)
in
<1722>
the synagogues
<4864>
every
<2596> <3956>
sabbath day
<4521>_.
Then
<5119>
pleased it
<1380> (5656)
the apostles
<652>
and
<2532>
elders
<4245>_,
with
<4862>
the whole
<3650>
church
<1577>_,
to send
<3992> (5658)
chosen
<1586> (5671)
men
<435>
of
<1537>
their own company
<846>
to
<1519>
Antioch
<490>
with
<4862>
Paul
<3972>
and
<2532>
Barnabas
<921>_;
[namely], Judas
<2455>
surnamed
<1941> (5746)
Barsabas
<923>_,
and
<2532>
Silas
<4609>_,
chief
<2233> (5740)
men
<435>
among
<1722>
the brethren
<80>_:
And they wrote
<1125> (5660)
[letters] by
<1223>
them
<5495> <846>
after this manner
<3592>_;
The apostles
<652>
and
<2532>
elders
<4245>
and
<2532>
brethren
<80>
[send] greeting
<5463> (5721)
unto the brethren
<80>
which
<3588>
are of
<1537>
the Gentiles
<1484>
in
<2596>
Antioch
<490>
and
<2532>
Syria
<4947>
and
<2532>
Cilicia
<2791>_:
Forasmuch as
<1894>
we have heard
<191> (5656)_,
that
<3754>
certain
<5100>
which went out
<1831> (5631)
from
<1537>
us
<2257>
have troubled
<5015> (5656)
you
<5209>
with words
<3056>_,
subverting
<384> (5723)
your
<5216>
souls
<5590>_,
saying
<3004> (5723)_,
[Ye must] be circumcised
<4059> (5745)_,
and
<2532>
keep
<5083> (5721)
the law
<3551>_:
to whom
<3739>
we gave
<1291> (0)
no
<3756>
[such] commandment
<1291> (5668)_:
It seemed good
<1380> (5656)
unto us
<2254>_,
being assembled
<1096> (5637)
with one accord
<3661>_,
to send
<3992> (5658)
chosen
<1586> (5671)
men
<435>
unto
<4314>
you
<5209>
with
<4862>
our
<2257>
beloved
<27>
Barnabas
<921>
and
<2532>
Paul
<3972>_,
Men
<444>
that have hazarded
<3860> (5761)
their
<846>
lives
<5590>
for
<5228>
the name
<3686>
of our
<2257>
Lord
<2962>
Jesus
<2424>
Christ
<5547>_.
We have sent
<649> (5758)
therefore
<3767>
Judas
<2455>
and
<2532>
Silas
<4609>_,
who
<846>
shall
<518> (0)
also
<2532>
tell
<518> (5723)
[you] the same things
<846>
by
<1223>
mouth
<3056>_.
{mouth: Gr. word}
For
<1063>
it seemed good
<1380> (5656)
to the Holy
<40>
Ghost
<4151>_,
and
<2532>
to us
<2254>_,
to lay upon
<2007> (5733)
you
<5213>
no
<3367>
greater
<4119>
burden
<922>
than
<4133>
these
<5130>
necessary things
<1876>_;
That ye abstain
<567> (5733)
from meats offered to idols
<1494>_,
and
<2532>
from blood
<129>_,
and
<2532>
from things strangled
<4156>_,
and
<2532>
from fornication
<4202>_:
from
<1537>
which
<3739>
if ye keep
<1301> (5723)
yourselves
<1438>_,
ye shall do
<4238> (5692)
well
<2095>_.
Fare ye well
<4517> (5770)_.
So
<3303> <3767>
when they were dismissed
<630> (5685)_,
they came
<2064> (5627)
to
<1519>
Antioch
<490>_:
and
<2532>
when they had gathered
<4863> (0)
the multitude
<4128>
together
<4863> (5631)_,
they delivered
<1929> (5656)
the epistle
<1992>_:
[Which] when
<1161>
they had read
<314> (5631)_,
they rejoiced
<5463> (5644)
for
<1909>
the consolation
<3874>_.
{consolation: or, exhortation}
