KJV Translation Count — Total: 9x
The KJV translates Strong's G5344 in the following manner: Felix (9x).
  1. Felix = "happy"

    1. a Roman procurator of Judea appointed by the emperor Claudius in A.D. 53. He ruled the province in a mean, cruel, and profligate manner. His period of office was full of troubles and seditions. Paul was brought before Felix at Caesarea. He was remanded in prison, and kept there two years in hopes of extorting money from him. Acts 24:26,27. At the end of that time Porcius Festus was appointed to supersede Felix, who, on his return to Rome, was accused by the Jews in Caesarea, and would have suffered the penalty due to his atrocities had not his brother Pallas prevailed with the emperor Nero to spare him. The wife of Felix was Drusilla, daughter of Herod Agrippa I., who was his third wife and whom he persuaded to leave her husband and marry him.

STRONGS NT 5344: Φῆλιξ
Φῆλιξ (Lachmann Φῆλιξ (so Tr in Acts 24:22 (by mistake?)); cf. Lipsius, Grammat. Untersuch., p. 37; Buttmann, 13 (12); (Tdf. Proleg., p. 104; and references under the word κῆρυξ)) (literally, 'happy', 'fortunate'), Φήλικος, (Claudius (but in Tacitus, hist. 5, 9 called Antonius)) Felix, the eleventh procurator of Judaea (apparently between A.D. 52 and 60). He was a freedman of Claudius and his mother Antonia, and the brother of Pallas, the powerful favorite of the emperor. He first married Drusilla ((?) see Dict. of Greek and Rom. Biogr. under the word, 4), the granddaughter of Cleopatra and Antony; and afterward Drusilla, the daughter of Derod Agrippa. According to Tacitus, "per omnem saevitiam ac libidinem jus regium servili ingenio exercuit," and by his cruelty and injustice he stimulated the rage of the turbulent Jews against the Roman rule. When he had retired from the province and come to Rome, the Jews of Caesarea accused him before the emperor, but through the intercession of his brother Pallas he was acquitted by Nero (cf. Tacitus, hist. 5, 9, 5f; annal. 12, 54; Suetonius, vit. Claudii, 28; Josephus, Antiquities 20, 7, 1f and 8, 5f; 7, 9; b. j. 2, 13): Acts 23:24, 26; Acts 24:3, 22, 24f, 27; Acts 25:14. Cf. Winers RWB, under the word; Paret in Herzog iv. 354; (V. Schmidt in Herzog edition 2, iv. 518f); Overbeck in Schenkel ii., 263f; Schürer, Neutest. Zeitgesch., p. 303f § 19, 4; (Farrar, St. Paul, chapter xli.).
