Acts 15:31

Which when they had read, they rejoiced for the exhortation.
Read Chapter 15

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
We may here briefly remark, that the controversy was finally adjusted by the decree of the Council. 2ndly, That all, not only the Gentiles, but the abettors and masters of the former dissension, experienced great consolation in the promulgation of the decision, receiving it as the resolve not of mere mortal men, but of the Holy Spirit. It hath seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Then those (brethren) also exhorted them: and having established them, for towards Paul they were contentiously disposed, so departed from them in peace. And Judas and Silas, being prophets also themselves, exhorted the brethren with many words, and confirmed them. And after they had tarried there a space, they were let go in peace from the brethren unto the Apostles.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
for this also was needful, that (Paul and Barnabas) might be quit of all suspicion. Being prophets also themselves, it says, exhorted the brethren with many words. It shows here the right that Paul and Barnabas have to be believed. For Paul also might have done this, but it behooved to be done by these. And after they had tarried there a space, they were let go in peace.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
