Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:1 - And after five days came down the chief priest Ananias, with the elders, and a certain orator -- Tertullus, and they made manifest to the governor the things against Paul;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:2 - and he having been called, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, 'Much peace enjoying through thee, and worthy deeds being done to this nation through thy forethought,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:3 - always, also, and everywhere we receive it, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:4 - and that I may not be further tedious to thee, I pray thee to hear us concisely in thy gentleness;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:5 - for having found this man a pestilence, and moving a dissension to all the Jews through the world -- a ringleader also of the sect of the Nazarenes --
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:6 - who also the temple did try to profane, whom also we took, and according to our law did wish to judge,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:7 - and Lysias the chief captain having come near, with much violence, out of our hands did take away,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:8 - having commanded his accusers to come to thee, from whom thou mayest be able, thyself having examined, to know concerning all these things of which we accuse him;'
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:9 - and the Jews also agreed, professing these things to be so.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:10 - And Paul answered -- the governor having beckoned to him to speak -- 'Knowing that for many years thou hast been a judge to this nation, the more cheerfully the things concerning myself I do answer;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:11 - thou being able to know that it is not more than twelve days to me since I went up to worship in Jerusalem,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:12 - and neither in the temple did they find me reasoning with any one, or making a dissension of the multitude, nor in the synagogues, nor in the city;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:13 - nor are they able to prove against me the things concerning which they now accuse me.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:14 - 'And I confess this to thee, that, according to the way that they call a sect, so serve I the God of the fathers, believing all things that in the law and the prophets have been written,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:15 - having hope toward God, which they themselves also wait for, that there is about to be a rising again of the dead, both of righteous and unrighteous;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:16 - and in this I do exercise myself, to have a conscience void of offence toward God and men always.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:17 - 'And after many years I came, about to do kind acts to my nation, and offerings,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:18 - in which certain Jews from Asia did find me purified in the temple, not with multitude, nor with tumult,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:19 - whom it behoveth to be present before thee, and to accuse, if they had anything against me,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:20 - or let these same say if they found any unrighteousness in me in my standing before the sanhedrim,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:21 - except concerning this one voice, in which I cried, standing among them -- Concerning a rising again of the dead I am judged to-day by you.'
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:22 - And having heard these things, Felix delayed them -- having known more exactly of the things concerning the way -- saying, 'When Lysias the chief captain may come down, I will know fully the things concerning you;'
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:23 - having given also a direction to the centurion to keep Paul, to let him also have liberty, and to forbid none of his own friends to minister or to come near to him.
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:24 - And after certain days, Felix having come with Drusilla his wife, being a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith toward Christ,
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:25 - and he reasoning concerning righteousness, and temperance, and the judgment that is about to be, Felix, having become afraid, answered, 'For the present be going, and having got time, I will call for thee;'
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:26 - and at the same time also hoping that money shall be given to him by Paul, that he may release him, therefore, also sending for him the oftener, he was conversing with him;
Unchecked Copy BoxAct 24:27 - and two years having been fulfilled, Felix received a successor, Porcius Festus; Felix also willing to lay a favour on the Jews, left Paul bound.
