24:1 And [G1161] after [G3326] five [G4002] days [G2250] Ananias [G367] the high priest [G749] descended [G2597] with [G3326] the elders [G4245] , and [G2532] [with] a certain [G5100] orator [G4489] [named] Tertullus [G5061] , who [G3748] informed [G1718] the governor [G2232] against [G2596] Paul [G3972] .
24:2 And [G1161] when he [G846] was called forth [G2564] , Tertullus [G5061] began [G756] to accuse [G2723] [him], saying [G3004] , Seeing that by [G1223] thee [G4675] we enjoy [G5177] great [G4183] quietness [G1515] , and [G2532] that very worthy deeds [G2735] are done [G1096] unto this [G5129] nation [G1484] by [G1223] thy [G4674] providence [G4307] ,
24:3 [G5037] We accept [G588] [it] always [G3839] , and [G2532] in all places [G3837] , most noble [G2903] Felix [G5344] , with [G3326] all [G3956] thankfulness [G2169] .
24:4 Notwithstanding [G1161] , that [G3363] I be [G4119] not [G3363] [G1909] further [G4119] tedious [G1465] unto thee [G4571] , I pray [G3870] thee [G4571] that thou wouldest hear [G191] us [G2257] of thy [G4674] clemency [G1932] a few words [G4935] .
24:5 For [G1063] we have found [G2147] this [G5126] man [G435] [a] pestilent [G3061] [fellow], and [G2532] a mover [G2795] of sedition [G4714] among all [G3956] the Jews [G2453] throughout [G2596] the world [G3625] , and [G5037] a ringleader [G4414] of the sect [G139] of the Nazarenes [G3480] :
24:6 Who [G3739] also [G2532] hath gone about [G3985] to profane [G953] the temple [G2411] : [G2532] whom [G3739] we took [G2902] , and [G2532] would [G2309] have judged [G2919] according [G2596] to our [G2251] law [G3551] .
24:7 But [G1161] the chief captain [G5506] Lysias [G3079] came [G3928] [upon us], and with [G3326] great [G4183] violence [G970] took [him] away [G520] out of [G1537] our [G2257] hands [G5495] ,
24:8 Commanding [G2753] his [G846] accusers [G2725] to come [G2064] unto [G1909] thee [G4571] : by examining [G350] of [G3844] whom [G3739] thyself [G846] mayest [G1410] take knowledge [G1921] of [G4012] all [G3956] these things [G5130] , whereof [G3739] we [G2249] accuse [G2723] him [G846] .
24:9 And [G1161] the Jews [G2453] also [G2532] assented [G4934] , saying [G5335] that these things [G5023] were [G2192] so [G3779] .
24:10 Then [G1161] Paul [G3972] , after that the governor [G2232] had beckoned [G3506] unto him [G846] to speak [G3004] , answered [G611] , Forasmuch as I know [G1987] that thou [G4571] hast been [G5607] of [G1537] many [G4183] years [G2094] a judge [G2923] unto this [G5129] nation [G1484] , I do [G626] the more cheerfully [G2115] answer [G626] for [G4012] myself [G1683] :
24:11 Because that thou [G4675] mayest [G1410] understand [G1097] , that [G3754] there are [G1526] yet but [G2228] [G3756] twelve [G1177] days [G2250] [G4119] since [G575] [G3739] I [G3427] went up [G305] to [G1722] Jerusalem [G2419] for to worship [G4352] .
24:12 And [G2532] they neither [G3777] found [G2147] me [G3165] in [G1722] the temple [G2411] disputing [G1256] with [G4314] any man [G5100] , neither [G2228] raising up [G1999] [G4160] the people [G3793] [G1999] , neither [G3777] in [G1722] the synagogues [G4864] , nor [G3777] in [G2596] the city [G4172] :
24:13 Neither [G3777] can [G1410] they prove [G3936] [G3165] the things [G4012] whereof [G3739] they [G2723] now [G3568] accuse [G2723] me [G3450] .
24:14 But [G1161] this [G5124] I confess [G3670] unto thee [G4671] , that [G3754] after [G2596] the way [G3598] which [G3739] they call [G3004] heresy [G139] , so [G3779] worship I [G3000] the God [G2316] of my fathers [G3971] , believing [G4100] all things [G3956] which [G3588] are written [G1125] in [G2596] the law [G3551] and [G2532] in [G1722] the prophets [G4396] :
24:15 And have [G2192] hope [G1680] toward [G1519] God [G2316] , which [G3739] they [G3778] themselves [G846] also [G2532] allow [G4327] , that there shall be [G3195] [G1510] a resurrection [G386] of the dead [G3498] , both [G5037] of the just [G1342] and [G2532] unjust [G94] .
24:16 And [G1161] herein [G1722] [G5129] do I exercise [G778] myself [G846] , to have [G2192] always [G1275] a conscience [G4893] void of offence [G677] toward [G4314] God [G2316] , and [G2532] [toward] men [G444] .
24:17 Now [G1161] after [G1223] many [G4119] years [G2094] I came [G3854] to bring [G4160] alms [G1654] to [G1519] my [G3450] nation [G1484] , and [G2532] offerings [G4376] .
24:18 [G1161] Whereupon [G1722] [G3739] certain [G5100] Jews [G2453] from [G575] Asia [G773] found [G2147] me [G3165] purified [G48] in [G1722] the temple [G2411] , neither [G3756] with [G3326] multitude [G3793] , nor [G3761] with [G3326] tumult [G2351] .
24:19 Who [G3739] ought [G1163] [G1163] to have been here [G3918] before [G1909] thee [G4675] , and [G2532] object [G2723] , if [G1536] they had [G2192] ought [G1536] against [G4314] me [G3165] .
24:20 Or else [G2228] let [G2036] these [G846] same [G3778] [here] say [G2036] , if [G1536] they have found [G2147] any [G1536] evil doing [G92] in [G1722] me [G1698] , while I [G3450] stood [G2476] before [G1909] the council [G4892] ,
24:21 Except [G2228] it be for [G4012] this [G5026] one [G3391] voice [G5456] , that [G3739] I cried [G2896] standing [G2476] among [G1722] them [G846] , Touching [G3754] [G4012] the resurrection [G386] of the dead [G3498] I [G1473] am called in question [G2919] by [G5259] you [G5216] this day [G4594] .
24:22 And [G1161] when Felix [G5344] heard [G191] these things [G5023] , having more perfect [G197] knowledge [G1492] of [G4012] [that] way [G3598] , he deferred [G306] them [G846] , and said [G2036] , When [G3752] Lysias [G3079] the chief captain [G5506] shall come down [G2597] , I will know the uttermost [G1231] of your [G5209] matter [G2596] .
24:23 And [G5037] he commanded [G1299] a centurion [G1543] to keep [G5083] Paul [G3972] , and [G5037] to let [him] have [G2192] liberty [G425] , and [G2532] that he should forbid [G2967] none [G3367] of his [G846] acquaintance [G2398] to minister [G5256] or [G2228] come [G4334] unto him [G846] .
24:24 And [G1161] after [G3326] certain [G5100] days [G2250] , when Felix [G5344] came [G3854] with [G4862] his [G846] wife [G1135] Drusilla [G1409] , which was [G5607] a Jewess [G2453] , he sent for [G3343] Paul [G3972] , and [G2532] heard [G191] him [G846] concerning [G4012] the faith [G4102] in [G1519] Christ [G5547] .
24:25 And [G1161] as he [G846] reasoned [G1256] of [G4012] righteousness [G1343] , temperance [G2532] [G1466] , and [G2532] judgment [G2917] to come [G3195] [G1510] , Felix [G5344] trembled [G1096] [G1719] , and answered [G611] , Go thy way [G4198] for this time [G3568] ; when [G1161] I have [G2192] [G3335] a convenient season [G2540] , I will call for [G3333] thee [G4571] .
24:26 He hoped [G1679] also [G260] [G1161] [G2532] that [G3754] money [G5536] should have been given [G1325] him [G846] of [G5259] Paul [G3972] , that [G3704] he might loose [G3089] him [G846] : wherefore [G1352] he sent for [G3343] him [G846] the oftener [G4437] , and [G2532] communed with [G3656] him [G846] .
24:27 But [G1161] after [G4137] two years [G1333] Porcius [G4201] Festus [G5347] came [G2983] into Felix' [G5344] room [G1240] : and [G5037] Felix [G5344] , willing [G2309] to shew [G2698] the Jews [G2453] a pleasure [G5485] , left [G2641] Paul [G3972] bound [G1210] .
