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