Acts 15:13-21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

James’s Judgment

13 After they had stopped speaking, [a]James answered, saying, “Brethren, listen to me. 14 Simeon has related how God first concerned Himself about taking from among the Gentiles a people for His name. 15 With this the words of the Prophets agree, just as it is written,

16 After these things I will return,
And I will rebuild the [b]tabernacle of David which has fallen,
And I will rebuild its ruins,
And I will restore it,
17 So that the rest of [c]mankind may seek the Lord,
And all the Gentiles [d]who are called by My name,’
18 Says the Lord, who [e]makes these things known from long ago.

19 Therefore it is my judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles, 20 but that we write to them that they abstain from [f]things contaminated by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood. 21 For Moses from ancient generations has in every city those who preach him, since [g]he is read in the synagogues every Sabbath.”
