Acts 15:7-9 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

and there having been much disputing, Peter having risen up said unto them, `Men, brethren, ye know that from former days, God among us did make choice, through my mouth, for the nations to hear the word of the good news, and to believe;

and the heart-knowing God did bare them testimony, having given to them the Holy Spirit, even as also to us,

and did put no difference also between us and them, by the faith having purified their hearts;

Acts 15:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed them: “Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message of the gospel and believe. God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. He did not discriminate between us and them, for he purified their hearts by faith.
