Bible: Acts 21:18-26

21:18 The next day Paul went in with us to see James, and all the elders were there. 1  21:19 When Paul 2  had greeted them, he began to explain 3  in detail 4  what God 5  had done among the Gentiles through his ministry. 21:20 When they heard this, they praised 6  God. Then they said to him, “You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews 7  there are who have believed, and they are all ardent observers 8  of the law. 9  21:21 They have been informed about you – that you teach all the Jews now living 10  among the Gentiles to abandon 11  Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children 12  or live 13  according to our customs. 21:22 What then should we do? They will no doubt 14  hear that you have come. 21:23 So do what 15  we tell you: We have four men 16  who have taken 17  a vow; 18  21:24 take them and purify 19  yourself along with them and pay their expenses, 20  so that they may have their heads shaved. 21  Then 22  everyone will know there is nothing in what they have been told 23  about you, but that you yourself live in conformity with 24  the law. 25  21:25 But regarding the Gentiles who have believed, we have written a letter, having decided 26  that they should avoid 27  meat that has been sacrificed to idols 28  and blood and what has been strangled 29  and sexual immorality.” 21:26 Then Paul took the men the next day, 30  and after he had purified himself 31  along with them, he went to the temple and gave notice 32  of the completion of the days of purification, 33  when 34  the sacrifice would be offered for each 35  of them.
