American Standard Version
And the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren that dwelt in Judea:

Acts 11:29 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Then the disciples - determined to send relief - These were probably Gentile converts; and as they considered themselves receiving the spiritual blessings, which they now so happily enjoyed, through the means of the Christians in Judea, they resolved to communicate to them a portion of their temporal goods; and every man did this according to his ability, i.e. he gave a certain proportion of the property with which the providence of God had entrusted him. The community of goods had for some time ceased.
