Dey Come Togedda Jerusalem Side
(Amos 9:11-12; Isaiah 45:21)
1 ✡ 15:1: Pries 12:3Some Jew guys dat follow Jesus come from Judea to Antiok an dey teach da braddahs an sistahs. Dey tell, “If you no cut skin jalike Moses wen tell oua ancesta guys fo do, you no can get outa da bad kine stuff you stay do.” 2 Paul an Barnabas no take wat dey tell an make one big argue agains all dat. Cuz a dat, da Antiok church leadas pick Paul an Barnabas an some odda guys dat trus Jesus. Dey sen um Jerusalem side fo talk bout dis cut skin stuff wit da guys Jesus wen sen all ova, an wit da older Jerusalem leadas.
3 Da Antiok church guys sen um. Dey stop by Fonecia an Samaria. Dey tell all da braddahs an sistahs dea, “Get plenny peopo Antiok side dat trus Jesus, an dey not Jew guys.” Az why all da braddahs an sistahs feel real good inside wen dey hear all dat. 4 Wen Paul an Barnabas guys come Jerusalem, da peopo dat come togedda fo church, an da guys Jesus wen sen all ova, an da older leadas, dey all show dem aloha. An Paul an Barnabas tell um all da stuff God do wit dem. 5 But some a da Pharisee guys dat trus da Good Stuff Bout Jesus stan up an tell, “Da guys dass not Jew guys, no matta dey trus Jesus, dey gotta cut skin too an do all da odda stuff Moses wen write down inside da Rules.”
6 Da guys Jesus wen sen all ova an da older leadas come togedda fo talk bout dat. 7 ✡ 15:7: JGuys 10:1-43Dey talk long time. Den Peter stan up an tell, “Braddahs, you know dat befo time God pick me fo go tell da peopo dass not Jew guys da Good Stuff Bout Jesus fo dem trus him. 8 ✡ 15:8: JGuys 10:44; 2:4God, he know wat us guys tink. He show us dat he take in da peopo dass not Jew guys, cuz he make his Good An Spesho Spirit take charge a dem, jalike he wen do fo us guys. 9 God see dem same same jalike he see us. He make dem clean inside cuz dey trus him. 10 How come now you guys try go agains God?! You ack jalike God see da guys dass not Jew, da same jalike he see us Jew guys? How come you guys put heavy kine rules on top da guys dass not Jew but stay tight wit Jesus? You guys know dat us guys an oua ancesta guys no can follow all dose rules. 11 No ways can! We trus dat we get outa da bad kine stuff we do, but az not cuz we do wat da Rules tell us fo do. Az cuz Jesus, Da One In Charge, do plenny good tings fo us guys, jalike he do fo da peopo dass not Jew guys.”
12 All da guys come quiet an lissen wat Paul an Barnabas tell bout all da awesome stuff God do fo show his powa wen dey stay wit da peopo dass not Jew guys. 13 Wen dey pau talk, James tell, “Braddahs, lissen up. 14 Simon Peter wen tell us bout da time God show dat he take kea da peopo dass not Jew guys, cuz he pick some peopo fo come his guys from da guys dass not Jews. 15 Da guys dat wen talk fo God long time befo time, dey tell da same ting. Dey write dis down inside da Bible dat God tell dis:

Jalike wen peopo fix up one bus up house.
17 Den all da odda peopos,

An all da peopo dat stay mines
Dass not Jew guys,
Dey can look fo me too.
18 Dass wat Da One In Charge tell,

19 An James tell dis too: “Dis how I figga. Mo betta we no make rules dat goin make um mo hard fo da diffren peopos dass not Jew guys fo trus God. 20 ✡ 15:20 a: Outa 34:15-17; b: Pries 18:6-23; c: Pries 17:10-16Mo betta we write um one letta fo help da Jews an da odda peopo come togedda fo tell um:
No eat da food da peopo give to da idol kine gods, an

21 “Cuz da Rules Moses wen write down, get peopo teach dat stuff in all da towns from long time befo time, an dey read um in all da Jew churches ery Res Day.”
