And afterG3326 fiveG4002 daysG2250 AnaniasG367 the highG749 priestG749 descendedG2597 with the elders,G4245 and with a certainG5100 oratorG4489 named Tertullus,G5061 whoG3748 informedG1718 the governorG2232 againstG2596 Paul.G3972
And when he was calledG2564 forth,G2564 TertullusG5061 beganG756 to accuseG2723 him, saying,G3004 Seeing that by you we enjoyG5177 greatG4183 quietness,G1515 and that veryG2735 worthyG2735 deedsG2735 are doneG1096 to thisG5129 nationG1484 by your providence,G4307
We acceptG588 it always,G3839 and in allG3837 places,G3837 mostG2903 nobleG2903 Felix,G5344 with allG3956 thankfulness.G2169
Notwithstanding, that I be not furtherG1909 G4118 tediousG1465 to you, I prayG3870 you that you would hearG191 us of your clemencyG1932 a fewG4935 words.
For we have foundG2147 thisG5126 manG435 a pestilentG3061 fellow, and a moverG2795 of seditionG4714 among allG3956 the JewsG2453 throughoutG2596 the world,G3625 and a ringleaderG4414 of the sectG139 of the Nazarenes:G3480
WhoG3739 alsoG2532 has goneG3985 aboutG3985 to profaneG953 the temple:G2411 whomG3739 we took,G2902 and wouldG2309 have judgedG2919 accordingG2596 to our law.G3551
But the chiefG5506 captainG5506 LysiasG3079 cameG3928 on us, and with greatG4183 violenceG970 tookG520 him awayG520 out of our hands,G5495
CommandingG2753 his accusersG2725 to comeG2064 to you: by examiningG350 of whomG3739 yourselfG846 may take knowledgeG1921 of allG3956 theseG5130 things, whereofG3739 we accuseG2723 him.
And the JewsG2453 alsoG2532 assented,G4934 sayingG5335 that theseG5023 things were so.G3779
ThenG1161 Paul,G3972 after that the governorG2232 had beckonedG3506 to him to speak,G3004 answered,G611 For as much as I knowG1987 that you have beenG5607 of manyG4183 yearsG2094 a judgeG2923 to thisG5129 nation,G1484 I do the moreG2115 cheerfullyG2115 answerG626 for myself:G1683
Because that you may understand,G1097 that there are yet but twelveG1177 daysG2250 sinceG575 G3739 I wentG305 up to JerusalemG2419 for to worship.G4352
And they neitherG3777 foundG2147 me in the templeG2411 disputingG1256 with anyG5100 man, neitherG2228 raisingG4160 G1999 up the people,G3793 neitherG2228 in the synagogues,G4864 norG3777 in the city:G4172
NeitherG2228 canG1410 they proveG3936 the things whereofG4012 G3739 they nowG3568 accuseG2723 me.
But thisG5124 I confessG3670 to you, that afterG2596 the wayG3598 whichG3739 they callG3004 heresy,G139 soG3779 worshipG3000 I the GodG2316 of my fathers,G3971 believingG4100 allG3956 things whichG3588 are writtenG1125 in the lawG3551 and in the prophets:G4396
And haveG2192 hopeG1680 towardG1519 God,G2316 whichG3739 they themselvesG846 alsoG2532 allow,G4327 that there shall be a resurrectionG386 of the dead,G3498 bothG5037 of the justG1342 and unjust.G94
And hereinG1722 G5129 do I exerciseG778 myself, to haveG2192 alwaysG1275 a conscienceG4893 voidG677 to offenseG677 towardG4314 God,G2316 and toward men.G444
NowG1161 afterG1223 manyG4119 yearsG2094 I cameG3854 to bringG4160 almsG1654 to my nation,G1484 and offerings.G4376
WhereuponG1722 G3739 certainG5100 JewsG2453 from AsiaG773 foundG2147 me purifiedG48 in the temple,G2411 neitherG3756 with multitude,G3793 norG3761 with tumult.G2351
WhoG3739 oughtG1163 to have beenG3918 hereG3918 beforeG1909 you, and object,G2723 ifG1487 they hadG2192 oughtG5100 againstG4314 me.
OrG2228 else let theseG3778 sameG3778 here say,G2036 ifG1487 they have foundG2147 anyG1536 evilG92 doingG92 in me, while I stoodG2476 beforeG1909 the council,G4892
ExceptG2228 it be for thisG5026 oneG3391 voice,G5456 that I criedG2896 standingG2476 amongG1722 them, TouchingG4012 the resurrectionG386 of the deadG3498 I am calledG2919 in questionG2919 by you thisG4594 day.G4594
And when FelixG5344 heardG191 theseG5023 things, having moreG197 perfectG197 knowledgeG1492 of that way,G3598 he deferredG306 them, and said,G2036 WhenG3752 LysiasG3079 the chiefG5506 captainG5506 shall comeG2597 down,G2597 I will knowG1231 the uttermostG1231 of yourG2596 G5209 matter.G2596
And he commandedG1299 a centurionG1543 to keepG5083 Paul,G3972 and to let him haveG2192 liberty,G425 and that he should forbidG2967 noneG3367 of his acquaintanceG2398 to ministerG5256 orG2228 comeG4334 to him.
And afterG3326 certainG5100 days,G2250 when FelixG5344 cameG3854 with his wifeG1135 Drusilla,G1409 which was a Jewess,G2453 he sentG3343 for Paul,G3972 and heardG191 him concerningG4012 the faithG4102 in Christ.G5547
And as he reasonedG1256 of righteousness,G1343 temperance,G1466 and judgmentG2917 to comeG3195 G1510 FelixG5344 trembled,G1719 G1096 and answered,G611 GoG4198 your way for thisG3568 time;G3568 when I haveG3335 a convenientG2540 season,G2540 I will callG3333 for you.
He hopedG1679 alsoG260 that moneyG5536 should haveG3335 been givenG1325 him of Paul,G3972 that he might looseG3089 him: whyG1352 he sentG3343 for him the oftener,G4437 and communedG3656 with him.
But afterG4137 twoG1333 yearsG1333 PorciusG4201 FestusG5347 cameG2983 G1240 into Felix'G5344 room:G1240 and Felix,G5344 willingG2309 to showG2698 the JewsG2453 a pleasure,G5485 leftG2641 PaulG3972 bound.G1210
