Galatians 2:1-10 - Paul's Ministry Recognized By The Jerusalem Apostles
1 Then after fourteen years, again went I up to Jerusalem with Barnabas, having taken together Titus. 2 And I went up according to revelation, and placed before them the good news which I proclaim in the nations, but apart to them highly esteemed, lest I run in vain, or ran. 3 But neither Titus, with me, being a Greek, was forced to be circumcised: 4 And through false brethren introduced privately, who came in privately to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might reduce us to slavery: 5 To whom we yielded in subjection, not for an hour; that the truth of the good news might remain with you.
6 And from them seeming to be something, (whatever they were, it concerns me nothing: God receives not man's face:) for they seeming entrusted nothing to me: 7 But on the contrary, having seen that I have been entrusted with the good news of uncircumcision, as Peter of circumcision; 8 (For be having been energetic in Peter for the mission of circumcision, was energetic also in me for the nations:) 9 And having known the grace given to me, James, and Cephas, and John, seeming to be pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hands of communion; that we for the nations, and they for the circumcision. 10 Only that we remember the poor; and this same was I forward to do.
