Acts 26

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28]

26:1 And Agrippa said unto Paul, `It is permitted to thee to speak for thyself;' then Paul having stretched forth the hand, was making a defence:

26:2 `Concerning all things of which I am accused by Jews, king Agrippa, I have thought myself happy, being about to make a defence before thee to-day,

26:3 especially knowing thee to be acquainted with all things -- both customs and questions -- among Jews; wherefore, I beseech thee, patiently to hear me.

26:4 `The manner of my life then, indeed, from youth -- which from the beginning was among my nation, in Jerusalem -- know do all the Jews,

26:5 knowing me before from the first, (if they may be willing to testify,) that after the most exact sect of our worship, I lived a Pharisee;

26:6 and now for the hope of the promise made to the fathers by God, I have stood judged,

26:7 to which our twelve tribes, intently night and day serving, do hope to come, concerning which hope I am accused, king Agrippa, by the Jews;

26:8 why is it judged incredible with you, if God doth raise the dead?

26:9 `I, indeed, therefore, thought with myself, that against the name of Jesus of Nazareth it behoved `me' many things to do,

26:10 which also I did in Jerusalem, and many of the saints I in prison did shut up, from the chief priests having received the authority; they also being put to death, I gave my vote against them,

26:11 and in every synagogue, often punishing them, I was constraining `them' to speak evil, being also exceedingly mad against them, I was also persecuting `them' even unto strange cities.

26:12 `In which things, also, going on to Damascus -- with authority and commission from the chief priests --

26:13 at mid-day, I saw in the way, O king, out of heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me a light -- and those going on with me;

26:14 and we all having fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew dialect, Saul, Saul, why me dost thou persecute? hard for thee against pricks to kick!

26:15 `And I said, Who art thou, Lord? and he said, I am Jesus whom thou dost persecute;

26:16 but rise, and stand upon thy feet, for for this I appeared to thee, to appoint thee an officer and a witness both of the things thou didst see, and of the things `in which' I will appear to thee,

26:17 delivering thee from the people, and the nations, to whom now I send thee,

26:18 to open their eyes, to turn `them' from darkness to light, and `from' the authority of the Adversary unto God, for their receiving forgiveness of sins, and a lot among those having been sanctified, by faith that `is' toward me.

26:19 `Whereupon, king Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision,

26:20 but to those in Damascus first, and to those in Jerusalem, to all the region also of Judea, and to the nations, I was preaching to reform, and to turn back unto God, doing works worthy of reformation;

26:21 because of these things the Jews -- having caught me in the temple -- were endeavouring to kill `me'.

26:22 `Having obtained, therefore, help from God, till this day, I have stood witnessing both to small and to great, saying nothing besides the things that both the prophets and Moses spake of as about to come,

26:23 that the Christ is to suffer, whether first by a rising from the dead, he is about to proclaim light to the people and to the nations.'

26:24 And, he thus making a defence, Festus with a loud voice said, `Thou art mad, Paul; much learning doth turn thee mad;'

26:25 and he saith, `I am not mad, most noble Festus, but of truth and soberness the sayings I speak forth;

26:26 for the king doth know concerning these things, before whom also I speak boldly, for none of these things, I am persuaded, are hidden from him; for this thing hath not been done in a corner;

26:27 thou dost believe, king Agrippa, the prophets? I have known that thou dost believe!'

26:28 And Agrippa said unto Paul, `In a little thou dost persuade me to become a Christian!'

26:29 and Paul said, `I would have wished to God, both in a little, and in much, not only thee, but also all those hearing me to-day, to become such as I also am -- except these bonds.'

26:30 And, he having spoken these things, the king rose up, and the governor, Bernice also, and those sitting with them,

26:31 and having withdrawn, they were speaking unto one another, saying -- `This man doth nothing worthy of death or of bonds;'

26:32 and Agrippa said to Festus, `This man might have been released if he had not appealed to Caesar.'
