26:1 Then [G1161] Agrippa [G67] said [G5346] unto [G4314] Paul [G3972] , Thou [G4671] art permitted [G2010] to speak [G3004] for [G5228] thyself [G4572] . Then [G5119] Paul [G3972] stretched forth [G1614] the hand [G5495] , and answered for himself [G626] :
26:2 I think [G2233] myself [G1683] happy [G3107] , king [G935] Agrippa [G67] , because I shall [G3195] answer for myself [G626] this day [G4594] before [G1909] thee [G4675] touching [G4012] all the things [G3956] whereof [G3739] I am accused [G1458] of [G5259] the Jews [G2453] :
26:3 Especially [G3122] [because I know [gre1492] ] thee [G4571] to be [G5607] expert [G1109] [G5037] in all [G3956] customs [G1485] and [G2532] questions [G2213] which are among [G2596] the Jews [G2453] : wherefore [G1352] I beseech [G1189] thee [G4675] to hear [G191] me [G3450] patiently [G3116] .
26:4 My [G3450] manner [G3303] [G3767] of life [G981] from [G1537] my youth [G3503] , which [G3588] was [G1096] at [G575] the first [G746] among [G1722] mine [G3450] own nation [G1484] at [G1722] Jerusalem [G2414] , know [G2467] all [G3956] the Jews [G2453] ;
26:5 Which knew [G4267] me [G3165] from the beginning [G509] , if [G1437] they would [G2309] testify [G3140] , that [G3754] after [G2596] the most straitest [G196] sect [G139] of our [G2251] religion [G2356] I lived [G2198] a Pharisee [G5330] .
26:6 And [G2532] now [G3568] I stand [G2476] and am judged [G2919] for [G1909] the hope [G1680] of the promise [G1860] made [G1096] of [G5259] God [G2316] unto [G4314] our fathers [G3962] :
26:7 Unto [G1519] which [G3739] [promise] our [G2257] twelve tribes [G1429] , instantly [G1722] [G1616] serving [G3000] [God] day [G2250] and [G2532] night [G3571] , hope [G1679] to come [G2658] . For [G4012] which [G3739] hope's sake [G1680] , king [G935] Agrippa [G67] , I am accused [G1458] of [G5259] the Jews [G2453] .(day and night: Gr. night and day)
26:8 Why [G5101] should it be thought a thing [G2919] incredible [G571] with [G3844] you [G5213] , that [G1487] God [G2316] should raise [G1453] the dead [G3498] ?
26:9 I [G1473] verily [G3303] [G3767] thought [G1380] with myself [G1683] , that I ought [G1163] to do [G4238] many things [G4183] contrary [G1727] to [G4314] the name [G3686] of Jesus [G2424] of Nazareth [G3480] .
26:10 Which thing [G3739] I [G4160] also [G2532] did [G4160] in [G1722] Jerusalem [G2414] : and [G2532] many [G4183] of the saints [G40] did [G2623] I [G1473] shut up [G2623] in prison [G5438] , having received [G2983] authority [G1849] from [G3844] the chief priests [G749] ; and [G5037] when they [G846] were put to death [G337] , I gave [G2702] my voice [G5586] against [them].
26:11 And [G2532] I punished [G5097] them [G846] oft [G4178] in [G2596] every [G3956] synagogue [G4864] , and compelled [G315] [them] to blaspheme [G987] ; and [G5037] being [G1693] exceedingly [G4057] mad against [G1693] them [G846] , I persecuted [G1377] [them] even [G2532] unto [G1519] [G2193] strange [G1854] cities [G4172] .
26:12 [G2532] Whereupon [G1722] [G3739] as I went [G4198] to [G1519] Damascus [G1154] with [G3326] authority [G1849] and [G2532] commission [G2011] from [G3844] the chief priests [G749] ,
26:13 At midday [G2250] [G3319] , O king [G935] , I saw [G1492] in [G2596] the way [G3598] a light [G5457] from heaven [G3771] , above [G5228] the brightness [G2987] of the sun [G2246] , shining round about [G4034] me [G3165] and [G2532] them which journeyed [G4198] with [G4862] me [G1698] .
26:14 And [G1161] when we [G2257] were [G2667] all [G3956] fallen [G2667] to [G1519] the earth [G1093] , I heard [G191] a voice [G5456] speaking [G2980] unto [G4314] me [G3165] , and [G2532] saying [G3004] in the Hebrew [G1446] tongue [G1258] , Saul [G4549] , Saul [G4549] , why [G5101] persecutest thou [G1377] me [G3165] ? [it is] hard [G4642] for thee [G4671] to kick [G2979] against [G4314] the pricks [G2759] .
26:15 And [G1161] I [G1473] said [G2036] , Who [G5101] art thou [G1488] , Lord [G2962] ? And [G1161] he said [G2036] , I [G1473] am [G1510] Jesus [G2424] whom [G3739] thou [G4771] persecutest [G1377] .
26:16 But [G235] rise [G450] , and [G2532] stand [G2476] upon [G1909] thy [G4675] feet [G4228] : for [G1063] I have appeared [G3700] unto thee [G4671] for [G1519] this purpose [G5124] , to make [G4400] thee [G4571] a minister [G5257] and [G2532] a witness [G3144] both [G5037] of these things which [G3739] thou hast seen [G1492] , and [G5037] of those things in the which [G3739] I will appear [G3700] unto thee [G4671] ;
26:17 Delivering [G1807] thee [G4571] from [G1537] the people [G2992] , and [G2532] [from] the Gentiles [G1484] , unto [G1519] whom [G3739] now [G3568] I send [G649] thee [G4571] ,
26:18 To open [G455] their [G846] eyes [G3788] , [and] to turn [G1994] [them] from [G575] darkness [G4655] to [G1519] light [G5457] , and [G2532] [from] the power [G1849] of Satan [G4567] unto [G1909] God [G2316] , that they [G846] may receive [G2983] forgiveness [G859] of sins [G266] , and [G2532] inheritance [G2819] among [G1722] them which are sanctified [G37] by faith [G4102] that is in [G1519] me [G1691] .
26:19 Whereupon [G3606] , O king [G935] Agrippa [G67] , I was [G1096] not [G3756] disobedient [G545] unto the heavenly [G3770] vision [G3701] :
26:20 But [G235] shewed [G518] [G518] first [G4412] unto them of [G1722] Damascus [G1154] , and [G2532] at Jerusalem [G2414] , and [G5037] throughout [G1519] all [G3956] the coasts [G5561] of Judaea [G2449] , and [G2532] [then] to the Gentiles [G1484] , that they should repent [G3340] and [G2532] turn [G1994] to [G1909] God [G2316] , and do [G4238] works [G2041] meet [G514] for repentance [G3341] .
26:21 For [G1752] these causes [G5130] the Jews [G2453] caught [G4815] me [G3165] in [G1722] the temple [G2411] , and went about [G3987] to kill [G1315] [me].
26:22 Having [G5177] therefore [G3767] obtained [G5177] help [G1947] of [G3844] God [G2316] , I continue [G2476] unto [G891] this [G5026] day [G2250] , witnessing [G3140] both [G5037] to small [G3398] and [G2532] great [G3173] , saying [G3004] none other things [G3762] than [G1622] those which [G3739] [G5037] the prophets [G4396] and [G2532] Moses [G3475] did say [G2980] should [G3195] come [G1096] :
26:23 That [G1487] Christ [G5547] should suffer [G3805] , [and] that [G1487] he should be the first [G4413] that should rise [G386] from [G1537] the dead [G3498] , and should [G3195] shew [G2605] light [G5457] unto the people [G2992] , and [G2532] to the Gentiles [G1484] .
26:24 And [G1161] as he [G846] thus [G5023] spake for himself [G626] , Festus [G5347] said [G5346] with a loud [G3173] voice [G5456] , Paul [G3972] , thou art beside thyself [G3105] ; much [G4183] learning [G1121] doth make [G4062] thee [G4571] mad [G1519] [G3130] .
26:25 But [G1161] he said [G5346] , I am [G3105] not [G3756] mad [G3105] , most noble [G2903] Festus [G5347] ; but [G235] speak forth [G669] the words [G4487] of truth [G225] and [G2532] soberness [G4997] .
26:26 For [G1063] the king [G935] knoweth [G1987] of [G4012] these [G5130] things, before [G4314] whom [G3739] also [G2532] I speak [G2980] freely [G3955] : for [G1063] I am persuaded [G3982] that [G3756] none [G5100] [G3762] of these things [G5130] are hidden [G2990] from him [G846] ; for [G1063] this thing [G5124] was [G2076] not [G3756] done [G4238] in [G1722] a corner [G1137] .
26:27 King [G935] Agrippa [G67] , believest thou [G4100] the prophets [G4396] ? I know [G1492] that [G3754] thou believest [G4100] .
26:28 Then [G1161] Agrippa [G67] said [G5346] unto [G4314] Paul [G3972] , Almost [G1722] [G3641] thou persuadest [G3982] me [G3165] to be [G1096] a Christian [G5546] .
26:29 And [G1161] Paul [G3972] said [G2036] , I would [G302] [G2172] to God [G2316] , that not [G3756] only [G3440] thou [G4571] , but [G235] also [G2532] all [G3956] that hear [G191] me [G3450] this day [G4594] , were [G1096] both [G2532] almost [G1722] [G3641] , and [G2532] altogether [G1722] [G4183] such [G5108] as [G3697] [G2504] I am [G1510] , except [G3924] these [G5130] bonds [G1199] .
26:30 And [G2532] when he [G846] had [G2036] thus [G5023] spoken [G2036] , the king [G935] rose up [G450] , and [G2532] the governor [G2232] , and [G5037] Bernice [G959] , and [G2532] they that sat with [G4775] them [G846] :
26:31 And [G2532] when they were gone aside [G402] , they talked [G2980] between [G4314] themselves [G240] , saying [G3004] , [G3754] This [G3778] man [G444] doeth [G4238] nothing [G3762] worthy [G514] of death [G2288] or [G2228] of bonds [G1199] .
26:32 Then [G1161] said [G5346] Agrippa [G67] unto Festus [G5347] , This [G3778] man [G444] might [G1410] have been set at liberty [G630] , if [G1508] he had [G1941] not [G1508] appealed unto [G1941] Caesar [G2541] .
