23:1 And [G1161] Paul [G3972] , earnestly beholding [G816] the council [G4892] , said [G2036] , Men [G435] [and] brethren [G80] , I [G1473] have lived [G4176] in all [G3956] good [G18] conscience [G4893] before God [G2316] until [G891] this [G5026] day [G2250] .

23:2 And [G1161] the high priest [G749] Ananias [G367] commanded [G2004] them that stood by [G3936] him [G846] to smite [G5180] him [G846] on the mouth [G4750] .

23:3 Then [G5119] said [G2036] Paul [G3972] unto [G4314] him [G846] , God [G2316] shall [G3195] smite [G5180] thee [G4571] , [thou] whited [G2867] wall [G5109] : for [G2532] sittest [G2521] thou [G4771] to judge [G2919] me [G3165] after [G2596] the law [G3551] , and [G2532] commandest [G2753] me [G3165] to be smitten [G5180] contrary to the law [G3891] ?

23:4 And [G1161] they that stood by [G3936] said [G2036] , Revilest thou [G3058] God's [G2316] high priest [G749] ?

23:5 Then [G5037] said [G5346] Paul [G3972] , I wist [G1492] not [G3756] , brethren [G80] , that [G3754] he was [G2076] the high priest [G749] : for [G1063] it is written [G1125] , Thou shalt [G2046] not [G3756] speak [G2046] evil [G2560] of the ruler [G758] of thy [G4675] people [G2992] .

23:6 But [G1161] when Paul [G3972] perceived [G1097] that [G3754] the one [G1520] part [G3313] were [G2076] Sadducees [G4523] , and [G1161] the other [G2087] Pharisees [G5330] , he cried out [G2896] in [G1722] the council [G4892] , Men [G435] [and] brethren [G80] , I [G1473] am [G1510] a Pharisee [G5330] , the son [G5207] of a Pharisee [G5330] : of [G4012] the hope [G1680] and [G2532] resurrection [G386] of the dead [G3498] I [G1473] am called in question [G2919] .

23:7 And [G1161] when he [G846] had [G2980] so [G5124] said [G2980] , there arose [G1096] a dissension [G4714] between the Pharisees [G5330] and [G2532] the Sadducees [G4523] : and [G2532] the multitude [G4128] was divided [G4977] .

23:8 For [G1063] [G3303] the Sadducees [G4523] say [G3004] that there is [G1511] no [G3361] resurrection [G386] , neither [G3366] angel [G32] , nor [G3383] spirit [G4151] : but [G1161] the Pharisees [G5330] confess [G3670] both [G297] .

23:9 And [G1161] there arose [G1096] a great [G3173] cry [G2906] : and [G2532] the scribes [G1122] [that were] of the Pharisees' [G5330] part [G3313] arose [G450] , and strove [G1264] , saying [G3004] , We find [G2147] no [G3762] evil [G2556] in [G1722] this [G5129] man [G444] : but [G1161] if [G1487] a spirit [G4151] or [G2228] an angel [G32] hath spoken [G2980] to him [G846] , let us [G2313] not [G3361] fight [G2313] against God.

23:10 And [G1161] when there arose [G1096] a great [G4183] dissension [G4714] , the chief captain [G5506] , fearing [G2125] lest [G3361] Paul [G3972] should have been pulled in pieces [G1288] of [G5259] them [G846] , commanded [G2753] the soldiers [G4753] to go down [G2597] , and to take [G726] him [G846] by force [G726] from [G1537] among [G3319] them [G846] , and [G5037] to bring [G71] [him] into [G1519] the castle [G3925] .

23:11 And [G1161] the night [G3571] following [G1966] the Lord [G2962] stood by [G2186] him [G846] , and said [G2036] , Be of good cheer [G2293] , Paul [G3972] : for [G1063] as [G5613] thou hast testified [G1263] of [G4012] me [G1700] in [G1519] Jerusalem [G2419] , so [G3779] must [G1163] thou [G4571] bear witness [G3140] also [G2532] at [G1519] Rome [G4516] .

23:12 And [G1161] when it was [G1096] day [G2250] , certain [G5100] of the Jews [G2453] banded together [G4160] [G4963] , and bound [G332] themselves [G1438] under a curse [G332] , saying [G3004] that they would [G5315] neither [G3383] eat [G5315] nor [G3383] drink [G4095] till [G2193] [G3739] they had killed [G615] Paul [G3972] .(under a curse: or, with an oath of execration)

23:13 And [G1161] they were [G2258] more than [G4119] forty [G5062] which [G3588] had made [G4160] this [G5026] conspiracy [G4945] .

23:14 And they [G3748] came to [G4334] the chief priests [G749] and [G2532] elders [G4245] , and said [G2036] , We have bound [G332] ourselves [G1438] under a great curse [G331] , that we will eat [G1089] nothing [G3367] until [G2193] [G3739] we have slain [G615] Paul [G3972] .

23:15 Now [G3568] therefore [G3767] ye [G5210] with [G4862] the council [G4892] signify [G1718] to the chief captain [G5506] that [G3704] he bring [G2609] him [G846] down [G2609] unto [G4314] you [G5209] to morrow [G839] , as [G5613] though ye would [G3195] enquire [G1231] something more perfectly [G197] concerning [G4012] him [G846] : and [G1161] we [G2249] , or ever [G4253] he [G846] come near [G1448] , are [G2070] ready [G2092] to kill [G337] him [G846] .

23:16 And [G1161] when Paul's [G3972] sister's [G79] son [G5207] heard [G191] of their lying in wait [G1749] , he went [G3854] and [G2532] entered [G1525] into [G1519] the castle [G3925] , and told [G518] Paul [G3972] .

23:17 Then [G1161] Paul [G3972] called [G4341] one [G1520] of the centurions [G1543] unto [him], and said [G5346] , Bring [G520] this [G5126] young man [G3494] unto [G4314] the chief captain [G5506] : for [G1063] he hath [G2192] a certain thing [G5100] to tell [G518] him [G846] .

23:18 So [G3767] [G3303] he took [G3880] him [G846] , and brought [G71] [him] to [G4314] the chief captain [G5506] , and [G2532] said [G5346] , Paul [G3972] the prisoner [G1198] called [G4341] me [G3165] unto [him], and prayed me [G2065] to bring [G71] this [G5126] young man [G3494] unto [G4314] thee [G4571] , who hath [G2192] something [G5100] to say [G2980] unto thee [G4671] .

23:19 Then [G1161] the chief captain [G5506] took [G1949] him [G846] by the hand [G5495] , and [G2532] went [with him] aside [G402] privately [G2596] [G2398] , and asked [G4441] [him], What [G5101] is [G2076] that [G3739] thou hast [G2192] to tell [G518] me [G3427] ?

23:20 And [G1161] he said [G2036] , [G3754] The Jews [G2453] have agreed [G4934] to desire [G2065] thee [G4571] that [G3704] thou wouldest bring down [G2609] Paul [G3972] to morrow [G839] into [G1519] the council [G4892] , as [G5613] though they would [G3195] enquire [G4441] somewhat [G5100] of [G4012] him [G846] more perfectly [G197] .

23:21 But [G3767] do [G3982] not [G3361] thou [G4771] yield [G3982] unto them [G846] : for [G1063] there lie in wait for [G1748] him [G846] of [G1537] them [G846] more than [G4119] forty [G5062] men [G435] , which [G3748] have bound [G332] themselves [G1438] with an oath [G332] , that they will [G5315] neither [G3383] eat [G5315] nor [G3383] drink [G4095] till [G2193] [G3739] they have killed [G337] him [G846] : and [G2532] now [G3568] are they [G1526] ready [G2092] , looking for [G4327] a promise [G1860] from [G575] thee [G4675] .

23:22 So [G3303] [G3767] the chief captain [G5506] [then] let [G630] the young man [G3494] depart [G630] , and charged [G3853] [him, See thou] tell [G1583] no man [G3367] that [G3754] thou hast shewed [G1718] these things [G5023] to [G4314] me [G3165] .

23:23 And [G2532] he called unto [G4341] [him] [G5100] two [G1417] centurions [G1543] , saying [G2036] , Make ready [G2090] two hundred [G1250] soldiers [G4757] to [G3704] go [G4198] to [G2193] Caesarea [G2542] , and [G2532] horsemen [G2460] threescore and ten [G1440] , and [G2532] spearmen [G1187] two hundred [G1250] , at [G575] the third [G5154] hour [G5610] of the night [G3571] ;

23:24 And [G5037] provide [G3936] [them] beasts [G2934] , that [G2443] they may set [G1913] Paul [G3972] on [G1913] , and bring [him] safe [G1295] unto [G4314] Felix [G5344] the governor [G2232] .

23:25 And he wrote [G1125] a letter [G1992] after [G4023] this [G5126] manner [G5179] :

23:26 Claudius [G2804] Lysias [G3079] unto the most excellent [G2903] governor [G2232] Felix [G5344] [sendeth] greeting [G5463] .

23:27 This [G5126] man [G435] was taken [G4815] of [G5259] the Jews [G2453] , and [G2532] should [G3195] have been killed [G337] of [G5259] them [G846] : then came I [G2186] with [G4862] an army [G4753] , and rescued [G1807] him [G846] , having understood [G3129] that [G3754] he was [G2076] a Roman [G4514] .

23:28 And [G1161] when [G1014] I would [G1014] have known [G1097] the cause [G156] wherefore [G1223] [G3739] they accused [G1458] him [G846] , I brought [G2609] him [G846] forth [G2609] into [G1519] their [G846] council [G4892] :

23:29 Whom [G3739] I perceived [G2147] to be accused [G1458] of [G4012] questions [G2213] of their [G846] law [G3551] , but [G1161] to have [G2192] nothing [G3367] laid to his charge [G1462] worthy [G514] of death [G2288] or [G2228] of bonds [G1199] .

23:30 And [G1161] when it was told [G3377] me [G3427] how that [G5259] the Jews [G2453] laid wait [G1917] [G3195] [G1510] for [G1519] the man [G435] , I sent [G3992] straightway [G1824] to [G4314] thee [G4571] , and gave commandment [G3853] to his accusers [G2725] also [G2532] to say [G3004] before [G1909] thee [G4675] what [they had] against [G4314] him [G846] . Farewell [G4517] .

23:31 Then [G3767] [G3303] the soldiers [G4757] , as [G2596] it was commanded [G1299] them [G846] , took [G353] Paul [G3972] , and brought [G71] [him] by [G1223] night [G3571] to [G1519] Antipatris [G494] .

23:32 [G1161] On the morrow [G1887] they left [G1439] the horsemen [G2460] to go [G4198] with [G4862] him [G846] , and returned [G5290] to [G1519] the castle [G3925] :

23:33 Who [G3748] , when they came [G1525] to [G1519] Caesarea [G2542] , and [G2532] delivered [G325] the epistle [G1992] to the governor [G2232] , presented [G3936] Paul [G3972] also [G2532] before him [G846] .

23:34 And [G1161] when the governor [G2232] had read [G314] [the letter], [G2532] he asked [G1905] of [G1537] what [G4169] province [G1885] he was [G2076] . And [G2532] when he understood [G4441] that [G3754] [he was] of [G575] Cilicia [G2791] ;

23:35 I will hear [G1251] thee [G4675] , said he [G5346] , when [G3752] thine [G4675] accusers [G2725] are [G3854] also [G2532] come [G3854] . And [G5037] he commanded [G2753] him [G846] to be kept [G5442] in [G1722] Herod's [G2264] judgment hall [G4232] .
