When they all recognized this grace operating in my ministry, James, Peter, and John, the esteemed followers[a] of Jesus, extended to me the warmth of Christian fellowship and honored[b] my calling to minister to the non-Jewish people. 10 They simply requested one thing of me: that I would remember the poor and needy, which was the burden I was already carrying in my heart.

James, Cephas[a] and John, those esteemed as pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me.
