29 And in the proportion that any of the disciples had means, each of them determined to send a contribution for the [a]relief of the brethren living in Judea.30 And this they did, sending it [b]in charge of Barnabas and Saul to the elders.
25 but now, I am going to Jerusalem serving the [a]saints.26 For Macedonia and Achaia have been pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the [b]saints in Jerusalem.27 Yes, they were pleased to do so, and they are indebted to them.
