Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:1 - And Paul, looking intently at the council, said, "Brethren, I have lived before God in all good conscience up to this day."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:2 - And the high priest Anani'as commanded those who stood by him to strike him on the mouth.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:3 - Then Paul said to him, "God shall strike you, you whitewashed wall! Are you sitting to judge me according to the law, and yet contrary to the law you order me to be struck?"

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:4 - Those who stood by said, "Would you revile God's high priest?"

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:5 - And Paul said, "I did not know, brethren, that he was the high priest; for it is written, 'You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people.'"

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:6 - But when Paul perceived that one part were Sad'ducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, "Brethren, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees; with respect to the hope and the resurrection of the dead I am on trial."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:7 - And when he had said this, a dissension arose between the Pharisees and the Sad'ducees; and the assembly was divided.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:8 - For the Sad'ducees say that there is no resurrection, nor angel, nor spirit; but the Pharisees acknowledge them all.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:9 - Then a great clamor arose; and some of the scribes of the Pharisees' party stood up and contended, "We find nothing wrong in this man. What if a spirit or an angel spoke to him?"

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:10 - And when the dissension became violent, the tribune, afraid that Paul would be torn in pieces by them, commanded the soldiers to go down and take him by force from among them and bring him into the barracks.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:11 - The following night the Lord stood by him and said, "Take courage, for as you have testified about me at Jerusalem, so you must bear witness also at Rome."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:12 - When it was day, the Jews made a plot and bound themselves by an oath neither to eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:13 - There were more than forty who made this conspiracy.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:14 - And they went to the chief priests and elders, and said, "We have strictly bound ourselves by an oath to taste no food till we have killed Paul.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:15 - You therefore, along with the council, give notice now to the tribune to bring him down to you, as though you were going to determine his case more exactly. And we are ready to kill him before he comes near."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:16 - Now the son of Paul's sister heard of their ambush; so he went and entered the barracks and told Paul.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:17 - And Paul called one of the centurions and said, "Take this young man to the tribune; for he has something to tell him."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:18 - So he took him and brought him to the tribune and said, "Paul the prisoner called me and asked me to bring this young man to you, as he has something to say to you."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:19 - The tribune took him by the hand, and going aside asked him privately, "What is it that you have to tell me?"

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:20 - And he said, "The Jews have agreed to ask you to bring Paul down to the council tomorrow, as though they were going to inquire somewhat more closely about him.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:21 - But do not yield to them; for more than forty of their men lie in ambush for him, having bound themselves by an oath neither to eat nor drink till they have killed him; and now they are ready, waiting for the promise from you."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:22 - So the tribune dismissed the young man, charging him, "Tell no one that you have informed me of this."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:23 - Then he called two of the centurions and said, "At the third hour of the night get ready two hundred soldiers with seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen to go as far as Caesare'a.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:24 - Also provide mounts for Paul to ride, and bring him safely to Felix the governor."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:26 - "Claudius Lys'ias to his Excellency the governor Felix, greeting.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:27 - This man was seized by the Jews, and was about to be killed by them, when I came upon them with the soldiers and rescued him, having learned that he was a Roman citizen.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:28 - And desiring to know the charge on which they accused him, I brought him down to their council.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:29 - I found that he was accused about questions of their law, but charged with nothing deserving death or imprisonment.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:30 - And when it was disclosed to me that there would be a plot against the man, I sent him to you at once, ordering his accusers also to state before you what they have against him."

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:31 - So the soldiers, according to their instructions, took Paul and brought him by night to Antip'atris.

Unchecked Copy BoxAct 23:32 - And on the morrow they returned to the barracks, leaving the horsemen to go on with him.
