|Faith Strengthened||Chapter 71||Part 2|
Acts 15:17, the Apostle James cites a verse from Amos 9:12, changed into the following terms:—"That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
The true passage runs thus:—"In order that those may inherit the remainder of Edom, and of all the Gentiles upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord who doeth this." The prophecy does not predict the acquisition of the inheritance in favor of other men, but in favor of Israel, "upon whom the name of the Lord is called. See Deuteronomy 28:10, "And all the people of the earth shall see that the name of the Lord is called upon thee."
