23. And they wrote letters by them after this manner;
The apostles and elders and brethren
send greeting unto the brethren
which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia:

that certain which went out from us
have troubled you with words,
subverting your souls, saying,

acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

but are now the people of God:
which had not obtained mercy,
but now have obtained mercy.
