25:1 Therefore when Festus came into the province, after the third day he went up to Jerusalem from Caesarea. When Festus was come into the province, after three days, he ascended from Cesarea unto Jerusalem. When Festus was then come into the province, after three days he went up from Cesarea unto Jerusalem. Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days he ascended from Cesarea to Hierusalem.
25:2 And the prince of priests, and the first of Jews went to him against Paul, and prayed him, Then informed him the high priests, and the chief of the jews against Paul. and they entreated him, Then the high Priest, and the chief of the Jews appeared before him against Paul: and they besought him, Then the high Priest, and the chief of the Jews informed him against Paul, and besought him,
25:3 and asked grace against him, that he should command him to be led to Jerusalem; setting ambush to slay him in the way. and desired favour against him that he would send for him to Jerusalem, and laid await for him in the way to kill him. And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem: and they laid wait to kill him by the way. And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Hierusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.
25:4 But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept in Caesarea; soothly that he himself should go forth more ripely. Festus answered that Paul should be kept at Cesarea: but that he himself would shortly depart thither. But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Cesarea, & that he himself would shortly depart thither. But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Cesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly thither.
25:5 Therefore he said, They that in you be mighty, come down together; and if any crime is in the man, accuse him. Let them therefore (said he) which among you are able to do it come down with us and accuse him, if there be any fault in the man. Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, come down with us: and if there be any wickedness in the man, let them accuse him. Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, go down with me, and accuse this man, if there be any wickedness in him.
25:6 Soothly he dwelling among them no more than eight or ten days, came down to Caesarea; and the tother day he sat for doomsman, and commanded Paul to be brought. When he had tarried there more than ten days he departed unto Cesarea, and the next day sat down in the judgement seat, and commanded Paul to be brought. Now when he had tarried among them no more than ten days, he went down to Cesarea, and the next day sat in the judgement seat, & commanded Paul to be brought. And when he had tarried among them more than ten days, he went down unto Cesarea, and the next day sitting on the judgement seat, commanded Paul to be brought.
25:7 And when he was brought forth, Jews stood about him, which came down from Jerusalem, putting against him many and grievous causes, which they might not prove. When he was come the jews which were come from Jerusalem, came about him and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove And when he was come, the Jews which were come from Jerusalem, stood about him and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove, And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Hierusalem, stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove,
25:8 For Paul yielded reason in all things, That neither against the law of Jews, neither against the temple, neither against Caesar, I sinned any thing. as long as he answered for himself, that he had neither against the law of the jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Cesar offended any thing at all. Forasmuch as he answered, that he had neither offended any thing against the Law of the Jews, neither against the Temple, nor against Cesar. While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the Temple, nor yet against Cesar, have I offended any thing at all.
25:9 Forsooth Festus willing to give grace to the Jews, answering to Paul, said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be deemed of these things before me? Festus willing to do the jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said: Wilt thou go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me? Yet Festus willing to get favour of the Jews, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me? But Festus willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Hierusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
25:10 At the doom place of Caesar I stand, where it behooveth me to be deemed. I have not harmed the Jews, as thou knowest well. Then said Paul: I stand at Cesar’s judgement seat, where I ought to be judged. To the jews have I no harm done, as thou very well knowest. Then said Paul, I stand at Cesar’s judgement seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews I have done no wrong, as thou very well knowest. Then said Paul, I stand at Cesar’s judgement seat, where I ought to be judged; to the Jews have I done no wrong, as thou very well knowest.
25:11 For if I have harmed, or done any thing worthy death, I forsake not to die; soothly if nothing of these is, that they accuse me, no man may give me to them. I appeal to Caesar. If I have hurt them, or committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die. If none of these things are, whereof they accuse me, no man ought to deliver me to them. I appeal unto Cesar. For if I have done wrong, or committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof they accuse me, no man can deliver me to them: I appeal unto Cesar. For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Cesar.
25:12 Then Festus spake with the council, and answered, To Caesar thou hast appealed, to Caesar thou shalt go. Then spake Festus with deliberation, and answered: Thou hast appealed unto Cesar: unto Cesar shalt thou go. Then when Festus had spoken with the Council, he answered, Hast thou appealed unto Cesar? unto Cesar shalt thou go. Then Festus when he had conferred with the Council, answered, Hast thou appealed unto Cesar? unto Cesar shalt thou go.
25:13 And when some days were passed, Agrippa king, and Bernice came down to Caesarea, to greet well Festus. After a certain days king Agrippa and Bernice came unto Cesarea to welcome Festus. And after certain days, King Agrippa and Bernice came down to Cesarea to salute Festus. And after certain days, king Agrippa and Bernice, came unto Cesarea, to salute Festus.
25:14 And when they dwelled there many days, Festus shewed to the king of Paul, saying, Some man is left bound of Felix, And when they had been there a good season, Festus rehearsed Paul’s cause unto the king saying: There is a certain man left in prison of Felix And when they had remained there many days, Festus proposed Paul’s cause unto the King, saying, There is a certain man left in prison by Felix. And when they had been there many days, Festus declared Paul’s cause unto the king, saying, There is a certain man left in bonds by Felix:
25:15 of which, when I was at Jerusalem, princes of priests and the elder men of the Jews came to me, asking damnation against him. about whom when I came to Jerusalem the high priests, and seniours of the Jews informed me, and desired to have judgement against him. Of whom when I came to Jerusalem, the high Priests & Elders of the Jews informed me, and desired to have judgement against him. About whom when I was at Hierusalem, the chief Priests and the Elders of the Jews informed me, desiring to have judgement against him.
25:16 To whom I answered, It is not custom to Romans, to damn any man, before that he that is accused have his accusers present, and take place of defending, to wash away crimes that be put against him. To whom I answered: It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man that he should perish, before that he which is accused, have his accusers before him, and have licence to answer for himself, as pertaining to the crime whereof he is accused. To whom I answered, that it is not the manner of the Romans for favour to deliver any man to the death before that he which is accused, have the accusers before him, and have place to defend himself, concerning the crime. To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused, have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.
25:17 Therefore when they came together hither, without any delay, in the day following I sat for doomsman, and commanded the man to be brought. when they were come hither, without delay on the morrow I sat to give judgement, and commanded the man to be brought forth. Therefore when they were come hither, without delay the day following I sat on the judgement seat, and commanded the man to be brought forth. Therefore when they were come hither, without any delay, on the morrow I sat on the judgement seat, and commanded the man to be brought forth.
25:18 Of whom when the accusers stood nigh, they said no cause, of which things I had suspicion of evil. against whom when the accusers stood up, they brought none accusation of such things as I supposed: Against whom when the accusers stood up, they brought no crime of such things as I supposed: Against whom when the accusers stood up, they brought none accusation of such things as I supposed:
25:19 But they had against him some questions of their vain worshipping, and of one Jesus dead, whom Paul affirmed to live. But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus which was dead. whom Paul affirmed to be alive. But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus which was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive. But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus, which was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.
25:20 And I doubted of such manner questions, and said, Whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be deemed of these things? Because I doubted of the questions, I asked him whither he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these matters. And because I doubted of such manner of question, I asked him whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things. And because I doubted of such manner of questions, I asked him whether he would go to Hierusalem, and there be judged of these matters.
25:21 But for Paul appealed, that he should be kept to the knowing of the emperor, I commanded him to be kept, till I shall send him to Caesar. Then when Paul had appealed to be kept unto the knowledge of Cesar. I commanded him to be kept till I might send him to Cesar. But because he appealed to be reserved to the examination of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept, till I might send him to Cesar. But when Paul had appealed to be reserved unto the hearing of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept, till I might send him to Cesar.
25:22 Soothly Agrippa said to Festus, And I myself would hear the man. To morrow, he said, thou shalt hear him. Agrippa said unto Festus: I would also hear the man myself. Tomorrow (said he) thou shalt hear him. Then Agrippa said unto Festus, I would also hear the man myself. To morrow, said he, thou shalt hear him. Then Agrippa said unto Festus, I would also hear the man myself. To morrow, said he, thou shalt hear him.
25:23 And on the tother day, when Agrippa and Bernice came with much ambition, and entered into the auditorium, with tribunes and the principal men of the city, when Festus bade, Paul was brought. On the morrow when Agrippa was come and Bernice with great pomp, and were entered into the counsel house with the captains and chief men of the city, at Festus’ commandment Paul was brought forth, And on the morrow when Agrippa was come and Bernice with great pomp, and were entered into the Common hall with the chief captains and chief men of the city, at Festus’ commandment Paul was brought forth. And on the morrow when Agrippa was come and Bernice, with great pomp, and was entered into the place of hearing, with the chief captains, and principal men of the city; at Festus’ commandment Paul was brought forth.
25:24 And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men that be with us, ye see this man, of which all the multitude of Jews prayed me at Jerusalem, asking and crying, that it behooveth not that he live more. and Festus said: King Agrippa, and all men which are here present with us: Ye see this man about whom all the multitude of Jews hath been with me, both at Jerusalem and also here, crying that he ought not to live any longer. And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men which are present with us, ye see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews have called upon me, both at Jerusalem, and here, crying, that he ought not to live any longer. And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men which are here present with us, ye see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews have dealt with me, both at Hierusalem, and also here, crying that he ought not to live any longer.
25:25 But I found, that he had done nothing worthy of death; soothly him appealing this thing to the emperor, I deemed to send. Yet found I nothing worthy of death that he had committed. Nevertheless seeing that he hath appealed to Cesar, I have determined to send him. Yet have I found nothing worthy of death, that he hath committed: nevertheless, seeing that he hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him. But when I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death, and that he himself hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.
25:26 Of which man I have not, what thing certain I shall write to the lord. For which thing I brought him to you, and most to thee, O king Agrippa, that when asking is made, I have what I shall write. Of whom I have no certain thing to write unto my lord. Wherefore I have brought him unto you, and specially unto thee, king Agrippa, that after examination had, I might have somewhat to write. Of whom I have no certain thing to write unto my Lord: wherefore I have brought him forth unto you, & specially unto thee, King Agrippa, that after examination had, I might have somewhat to write. Of whom I have no certain thing to write unto my Lord: Wherefore I have brought him forth before you, and specially before thee, O king Agrippa, that after examination had, I might have somewhat to write.
25:27 For it is seen to me without reason, to send a bound man, and not to signify the cause of him. For me thinketh it unreasonable for to send a prisoner, and not to shew the causes, which are laid against him. For me thinketh it unreasonable to send a prisoner, and not to shew the causes which are laid against him. For it seemeth to me unreasonable, to send a prisoner, and not withal to signify the crimes laid against him.
