“When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:18 They glorified God - Being thoroughly satisfied. Repentance unto life - True repentance is a change from spiritual death to spiritual life, and leads to life everlasting.
Ac 11:18 They held their peace. Gave up the controversy. They were convinced by the account, and assured that God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life; i.e., had removed the barriers in the way of the Gentiles repenting and finding life through Christ.
