21:1 And when it was done, that we should ship, and were passed away from them, with straight course we came to Coos, and the day following to Rhodes, and from thence to Patara. And it chanced that as soon as we had launched forth, and were departed from them, we came with a straight course unto Choon, and the day following unto the Rhodes, and from thence unto Patara. And as we launched forth, and were departed from them, we came with a straight course unto Coos, and the day following unto the Rhodes, & from thence unto Patara. And it came to pass, that after we were gotten from them, and had launched, we came with a straight course unto Choos, and the day following unto Rhodes, and from thence unto Patara.
21:2 And when we found a ship passing into Phenicia, we went up into it, and sailed forth. And we found a ship ready to sail unto Phenices. And went aboard and set forth. And we found a ship that went over unto Phenice, and went aboard, & set forth. And finding a ship sailing over unto Phenicea, we went aboard, and set forth.
21:3 And when we appeared to Cyprus, we left it at the left half, and sailed into Syria, and came to Tyre. Soothly there the ship was to put out the charge. Then appeared unto us Cyprus, and we left it on the left hand, and sailed unto Syria. and came unto Tyre. For there the ship unladed her burden. And when we had discovered Cyprus, we left it on the left hand, and sailed toward Syria, and arrived at Tyrus: for there the ship unladed the burden. Now when we had discovered Cyprus, we left it on the left hand, and sailed into Syria, and landed at Tyre: for there the ship was to unlade her burden.
21:4 And when we found disciples, we dwelled there seven days; which said by Spirit to Paul, that he should not go up to Jerusalem.

21:5 And the days fulfilled, we went forth, and all men with wives and children led forth us till without the city; and we kneeled in the sea brink, and we prayed. And when the days were ended we departed, and went our ways and they all brought us on our way, with their wives and children till we were come out of the city. and we kneeled down in the shore and prayed. But when the days were ended, we departed, and went our way, and they all accompanied us with their wives and children, even out of the city: & we kneeling down on the shore, prayed. And when we had accomplished those days, we departed, and went our way, and they all brought us on our way, with wives and children, till we were out of the city: and we kneeled down on the shore, and prayed.
21:6 And when we had made farewell together, we went up into the ship; soothly they turned again into their own things. and when we had taken our leave one of another, we took ship, and they returned home again.

21:14 And when we might not counsel him, we were still, saying, The will of the Lord be done. When we could not turn his mind, we ceased saying: The will of the lord be fulfilled.

And they are informed of thee, that thou teachest all the Jews which are among the Gentiles, to forsake Moses, saying, that they ought not to circumcise their children, neither to walk after the customs.

Them take and purify thyself with them. and do cost on them, that they may shave their heads. and all shall know that those things which they have heard of thee are nothing: but that thou thyself also walkest and keepest the law. Them take, & purify thyself with them, and contribute with them, that they may shave their heads: and all shall know, that those things, whereof they have been informed concerning thee, are nothing, but that thou thyself also walkest and keepest the Law.

21:25 But of these that believed of heathen men, we have written, deeming that they abstain them from things offered to idols, and blood, and strangled things, and from fornication. As touching the gentiles which believe we have written and concluded, that they observe no such things: but that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, from blood, from strangled, and from fornication. For as touching the Gentiles, which believe, we have written, and determined that they observe no such thing, but that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from that that is strangled, and from fornication. As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded, that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

21:29 For they saw Trophimus of Ephesus in the city with him, whom they guessed that Paul had brought into the temple. For they saw one Trophimus an Ephesian with him in the city. Him they supposed Paul had brought into the temple. For they had seen before Trophimus an Ephesian with him in the city, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the Temple. (For they had seen before with him in the city, Trophimus an Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the Temple.)
21:30 And all the city was moved, and a running together of the people was made. And they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple; and anon the gates were closed. And all the city was moved, and the people swarmed together. And they took Paul, and drew him out of the temple, and forthwith the doors were shut to. Then all the city was moved, & the people ran together: and they took Paul, and drew him out of the Temple, & forthwith the doors were shut.

And as they went about to kill him, tidings came unto the chief captain of the band, that all Hierusalem was in an uproar.
21:32 Which anon took knights, and centurions, and ran to them. And when they had seen the tribune, and the knights, they ceased to smite Paul. which immediately took soldiers and under-captains, and ran down unto them. When they saw the upper-captain and the soldiers, They left smiting of Paul. Who immediately took soldiers and Centurions, and ran down unto them: and when they saw the chief Captain & the soldiers, they left beating of Paul.

Then the chief captain came near, and took him, & commanded him to be bound with two chains, and demanded who he was, and what he had done.
21:34 Soothly others cried other thing in the company. And when he might know no certain thing for the noise, he commanded him to be led into the castles. One cried this, another that, among the people. And when he could not know the certainty, for the rage: He commanded him to be carried into the castle. And one cried this, another that, among the people. So when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be led into the castle. And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude: and when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle.
21:35 And when Paul came to the grees, it befell that he was borne of knights, for strength of the people. When he came unto a grece, it fortuned that he was borne of the soldiers for the violence of the people. And when he came unto the greces, it was so that he was borne of the soldiers, for the violence of the people. And when he came upon the stairs, so it was that he was borne of the soldiers, for the violence of the people.

21:37 And when Paul began to be led into the castles, he said to the tribune, If it is leaveful to me, to speak any thing to thee? Which said, Canst thou Greek?

Art not thou the Egyptian, who before these days raised a sedition, & led out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers? Art not thou that Egyptian which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?
21:39 And Paul said to him, Soothly I am a man Jew, of Tarsus of Cilicia, a citizen of a city not unknown. And I pray thee, suffer me to speak to the people. Paul said: I am a man which am a jew of Tharsus a city in Cicill, a citizen of no vile city, I beseech thee suffer me to licence, Then Paul said, Doubtless I am a man which am a Jew, & citizen of Tarsus, a famous city in Cilicia, & I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people. But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: & I beseech thee suffer me to speak unto the people.
