“The apostles and the brethren who are elders, to the brethren in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia who are from the Gentiles, greetings.
24 “Since we have heard that some [b]of our number to whom we gave no instruction have disturbed you with their words, unsettling your souls,25 it seemed good to us, having [c]become of one mind, to select men to send to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul,26 men who have [d]risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.27 “Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth.28 “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials:29 that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; [e]if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell.”
