Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:10 - And when the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, Paul answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I cheerfully make my defence:

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:11 - seeing that thou canst take knowledge that it is not more than twelve days since I went up to worship at Jerusalem:

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:12 - and neither in the temple did they find me disputing with any man or stirring up a crowd, nor in the synagogues, nor in the city.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:13 - Neither can they prove to thee the things whereof they now accuse me.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:14 - But this I confess unto thee, that after the Way which they call a sect, so serve I the God of our fathers, believing all things which are according to the law, and which are written in the prophets;

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:15 - having hope toward God, which these also themselves look for, that there shall be a resurrection both of the just and unjust.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:16 - Herein I also exercise myself to have a conscience void of offence toward God and men always.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:18 - amidst which they found me purified in the temple, with no crowd, nor yet with tumult: but there were certain Jews from Asia—

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:19 - who ought to have been here before thee, and to make accusation, if they had aught against me.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:20 - Or else let these men themselves say what wrong-doing they found when I stood before the council,

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:21 - except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question before you this day.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:22 - But Felix, having more exact knowledge concerning the Way, deferred them, saying, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will determine your matter.
