26:1 And Agrippa said to Paul, It is suffered to thee, to speak for thyself. Then Paul held forth the hand, and began to yield reason. Agrippa said unto Paul: Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth his hand, and answered for himself: Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. So Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself. Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself,
26:2 Of all things, in which I am accused of the Jews, thou king Agrippa, I guess me blessed at thee, when I shall defend me this day; I think myself happy king Agrippa, because I shall answer this day before thee of all the things whereof I am accused of the jews, I think myself happy, King Agrippa, because I shall answer this day before thee of all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews: I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:
26:3 most for thou knowest all things that be among Jews, customs and questions. For which thing, I beseech, hear me patiently. namely because thou art expert in all customs, and questions, which are among the jews. wherefore I beseech thee to hear me patiently. Chiefly, because thou hast knowledge of all customs, and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore, I beseech thee, to hear me patiently. Especially, because I know thee to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech thee to hear me patiently.
26:4 And soothly all Jews before-witting me from the beginning, have known my life from youth; My living of a child, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem know all the jews As touching my life from my childhood and what it was from the beginning among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews, My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Hierusalem, know all the Jews,
26:5 that from the beginning was in my folk in Jerusalem, if they will bear witness, for after the most certain sect of our religion, I lived a Pharisee. which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify it. For after the most straitest sect of our lay lived I a pharisaye Which knew me heretofore (if they would testify) that after the most strait sect of our religion I lived a Pharise. Which knew me from the beginning, (if they would testify) that after the most straitest sect of our religion, I lived a Pharisee.
26:6 And now for the hope of repromission, that is made to our fathers of God, I stand subject in doom; and now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers And now I stand and am accused for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers. And now I stand, and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
26:7 in which hope our twelve lineages serving night and day hope to come; of which hope, thou king, I am accused of the Jews. unto which promise, our twelve tribes instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope’s sake, king Agrippa am I accused of the jews. Whereunto our twelve tribes instantly serving God day and night, hope to come: for the which hope’s sake, o King Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews. Unto which promise our twelve tribes instantly serving God day and night, hope to come: For which hope’s sake, King Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
26:8 What unbelieveful thing is deemed of you, if God raiseth dead men? why should it be thought a thing uncredible unto you, if God raise again the dead? Why should it be thought a thing incredible unto you, that God should raise again the dead? Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
26:9 And soothly I guessed, that I ought to do many contrary things against the name of Jesus of Nazareth. I also verily thought in myself, that I ought to do many contrary things, clean against the name of Jesus of Nazareth: I also verily thought in myself, that I ought to do many contrary things against the Name of Jesus of Nazaret. I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth:
26:10 Which thing and I did in Jerusalem, and I inclosed many of saints in prisons, power taken of the princes of priests. And when they were slain, I gave the sentence. which thing I also did in Jerusalem. And many of the saints shut I in prison. moreover I received authority of the high priests: And when they were put to death I gave the sentence. Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: for many of the Saints I shut up in prison, having received authority of the high Priests, and when they were put to death, I gave my sentence. Which thing I also did in Hierusalem, and many of the Saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief Priests, and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.
26:11 And by all synagogues oft I punished them, and constrained to blaspheme; and more I waxing mad against them, pursued to alien cities. And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme. and was yet more mad upon them and persecuted them, even unto strange cities. And I punished them throughout all the Synagogues, and compelled them to blaspheme, and being more mad against them, I persecuted them, even unto strange cities. And I punished them oft in every Synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme, and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.
26:12 In which, the while I went to Damascus, with power and suffering of the princes of priests, About the which things as I went to Damascon with authority, and commission from the high priests, At which time, even as I went to Damascus with authority, & commission from the high Priests, Whereupon, as I went to Damascus, with authority and commission from the chief Priests:
26:13 in the midday, in the way I saw, thou king, from heaven light shined about me, over the shining of the sun, and them that went together with me. even at mid day (king Agrippa) I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shine round about me and them, which journeyed with me. At midday, o King, I saw in the way a light from heaven, passing the brightness of the sun, shine round about me, and them which went with me.

26:14 And when we all had fallen down into the earth, I heard a voice saying to me in Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, what pursuest thou me? it is hard for thee, for to kick against the prick. When we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the hebrew tongue: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? It is hard for thee to kick against the prick. So when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? It is hard for thee to kick against pricks.

26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus, whom thou pursuest. And I said: Who art thou lord? And he said: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: Then I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
26:16 But rise up, and stand on thy feet. For why to this thing I appeared to thee, that I ordain thee minister and witness of those things that thou hast seen, and of those things in which I shall appear to thee; But rise and stand up on thy feet. For I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister, and a witness both of those things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee, But rise and stand up on thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to appoint thee a minister and a witness, both of the things which thou hast seen, & of the things in the which I will appear unto thee, But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness, both of these things which thou hast seen, & of those things in the which I will appear unto thee,

26:18 to open the eyes of them, that they be turned from darknesses to light, and from power of Satan to God, that they take remission of sins, and sort among saints, by faith that is in me. to open their eyes that they might turn from darkness unto light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith in me.

26:19 Wherefore, thou king Agrippa, I was not unbelieveful to the heavenly vision; Wherefore king Agrippa I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision: Wherefore, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision, Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
26:20 I shewed to them that be at Damascus first, and at Jerusalem, and by all the country of Judaea, and to heathen men, that they should do penance, and be converted to God, and do worthy works of penance. but shewed first unto them of Damascon, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Jewry, and to the gentiles, that they should repent, and turn to God, and do the right works of repentance. But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent, and turn to God, and do works worthy amendment of life.

For this cause the Jews caught me in the Temple, and went about to kill me. For these causes the Jews caught me in the Temple, and went about to kill me.
26:22 But I was helped by the help of God till into this day, and stand, witnessing to less and more. Nothing saying over than which things the prophets and Moses spake that shall come, Nevertheless I obtained help of God, and stand unto this day witnessing both to small and to great, saying none other things, than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come, Nevertheless, I obtained help of God, and continue unto this day, witnessing both to small & to great, saying none other things, than those which the Prophets & Moses did say should come, Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the Prophets and Moses did say should come:
26:23 if Christ is passable, if the first of the again-rising of dead, that shall shew light to the people and to heathen men. that Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from death, and should shew light unto the people, and to the gentiles.

26:24 When he spake these things, and yielded reason, Festus said with great voice, Paul, thou maddest; many letters turn thee to madness. As he thus answered for himself: Festus said with a loud voice: Paul, thou art besides thyself. Much learning hath made thee mad. And as he thus answered for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art besides thyself: much learning doth make thee mad. And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself, much learning doth make thee mad.

But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus, but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
26:26 For also the king, to whom I speak steadfastly, knoweth of these things; for I deem, that nothing of these is hid from him; for neither in a corner was aught of these things done. The king knoweth of these things, before whom I speak freely. neither think I that any of these things are hidden from him. For this thing was not done in a corner. For the King knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak boldly: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hid from him: for this thing was not done in a corner. For the King knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded, that none of these things are hidden from him, for this thing was not done in a corner.

26:29 And Paul said, I desire with God, both in little and in great, not only thee, and all these that hear today, to be made such as I am, except these bonds. And Paul said: I would to God that not only thou: but also all that hear me today, were not somewhat only, but altogether such as I am except these bonds. Then Paul said, I would to God that not only thou, but also all that hear me today, were both almost, & altogether such as I am, except these bonds. And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.

26:31 Which when they went away, spake together, saying, That this man hath not done any thing worthy death, or bonds. And when they were gone apart, they talked between themselves saying: This man doeth nothing worthy of death, nor of bonds. And when they were gone apart, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death, nor of bonds. And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death, or of bonds.
26:32 Forsooth Agrippa said to Festus, This man might be dismissed, if he had not appealed to Caesar. Then said Agrippa unto festus: This man might have been loosed if he had not appealed unto Cesar. Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been loosed, if he had not appealed unto Cesar. Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Cesar.
