Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:1 - And after five days came down the high priest Ananias, with the elders, and a certain orator called Tertullus, and laid their informations against Paul before the governor.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:2 - And he having been called, Tertullus began to accuse, saying, Seeing we enjoy great peace through thee, and that excellent measures are executed for this nation by thy forethought,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:3 - we receive it always and everywhere, most excellent Felix, with all thankfulness.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:4 - But that I may not too much intrude on thy time, I beseech thee to hear us briefly in thy kindness.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:5 - For finding this man a pest, and moving sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a leader of the sect of the Nazaraeans;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:6 - who also attempted to profane the temple; whom we also had seized, and would have judged according to our law;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:7 - but Lysias, the chiliarch, coming up, took him away with great force out of our hands,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:8 - having commanded his accusers to come to thee; of whom thou canst thyself, in examining him, know the certainty of all these things of which we accuse him.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:9 - And the Jews also joined in pressing the matter against Paul, saying that these things were so.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:10 - But Paul, the governor having beckoned to him to speak, answered, Knowing that for many years thou hast been judge to this nation, I answer readily as to the things which concern myself.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:11 - As thou mayest know that there are 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 discoursing to any one, or making any tumultuous gathering together of the crowd, nor in the synagogues, nor in the city;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:13 - neither can they make good the things of which they now accuse me.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:14 - But this I avow to thee, that in the way which they call sect, so I serve my fathers' God, believing all things which are written throughout the law, and in the prophets;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:15 - having hope towards God, which they themselves also receive, that there is to be a resurrection both of just and unjust.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:16 - For this cause I also exercise myself to have in everything a conscience without offence towards God and men.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:17 - And after a lapse of many years I arrived, bringing alms to my nation, and offerings.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:18 - Whereupon they found me purified in the temple, with neither crowd nor tumult. But it was certain Jews from Asia,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:19 - who ought to appear before thee and accuse, if they have anything against me;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:20 - or let these themselves say what wrong they found in me when I stood before the council,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:21 - other than concerning this one voice which I cried standing amongst them: I am judged this day by you touching the resurrection of the dead.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:22 - And Felix, knowing accurately the things concerning the way, adjourned them, saying, When Lysias the chiliarch is come down I will determine your affair;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:23 - ordering the centurion to keep him, and that he should have freedom, and to hinder none of his friends to minister to him.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:24 - And after certain days, Felix having arrived with Drusilla his wife, who was a Jewess, he sent for Paul and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:25 - And as he reasoned concerning righteousness, and temperance, and the judgment about to come, Felix, being filled with fear, answered, Go for the present, and when I get an opportunity I will send for thee;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:26 - hoping at the same time that money would be given him by Paul: wherefore also he sent for him the oftener and communed with him.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:27 - But when two years were completed, Felix was relieved by Porcius Festus as his successor; and Felix, desirous to oblige the Jews, to acquire their favour, left Paul bound.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
