▼Or brothers and sisters; also verse 27and set sail for Syria, and with him c Priscilla and Aquila. At d Cenchreae e he had cut his hair, for he was under a vow.
Acts 21:23-2623Do therefore what we tell you. We have four men f who are under a vow; 24take these men and g purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses h so that they may shave their heads. Thus all will know that there is nothing in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself also live in observance of the law. 25But as for the Gentiles who have believed, i we have sent a letter with our judgment that they should abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, ▼
▼Some manuscripts omit and from what has been strangledand from sexual immorality.” 26Then Paul took the men, and the next day k he purified himself along with them and l went into the temple, giving notice when the days of purification would be fulfilled and m the offering presented for each one of them.
