28:1 And when we had escaped, then we knew that the isle was called Melita. And when they were scaped they knew that the isle was called Mileta. And when they were come safe, then they knew that the isle was called Melita. And when they were escaped, then they knew that the Island was called Melita.
28:2 Soothly barbarians gave to us not little humanity. And when a fire was kindled, they refreshed us all, for the rain that came, and the cold. The people of the country shewed us no little kindness, for they kindled a fire and received us every one because of the present rain, and because of cold. And the Barbarians shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present shower, and because of the cold. And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
28:3 But when Paul had gathered a quantity of cuttings of vines, and laid on the fire, an adder, when she came forth from the heat, assailed his hand. When Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, And put them into the fire, a viper (because of the heat) crept out and leapt on his hand. And when Paul had gathered a number of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and leapt on his hand. And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a Viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
28:4 Therefore as barbarians saw the beast hanging in his hand, they said together, Soothly this man is a man-queller; which when he escaped from the sea, God’s vengeance suffereth him not to live. When the men of the country saw the worm hang on his hand, they said among themselves: this man must needs be a murderer, Whom (though he have escaped the sea) yet vengeance suffereth not to live. Now when the Barbarians saw the worm hang on his hand, they said among themselves, This man surely is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet Vengeance hath not suffered to live. And when the Barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom though he hath escaped the Sea, yet Vengeance suffereth not to live.
28:5 And he soothly shaking off the beast into the fire, suffered nothing of evil. and he shook off the vermin into the fire, and felt no harm. But he shook off the worm into the fire, and felt no harm. And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
28:6 And they guessed that he should be turned into swelling, and fall down suddenly, and die. Forsooth them long abiding, and seeing nothing of evil to be done in him, they turned them together, and said, that he was God. They waited when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly. But after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a God. Howbeit they waited when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no inconvenience come to him, they changed their minds, and said, That he was a God. Howbeit, they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a God.
28:7 And in those places were manors of the prince of the isle, Publius by name, which received us by three days benignly, and ‘found’ us. In the same quarters, the chief man of the isle whose name was Publius, had a lordship, which received us, and lodged us three days courteously. In the same quarters, the chief man of the isle (whose name was Publius) had possessions: the same received us, and lodged us three days courteously. In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the Island, whose name was Publius, who received us, and lodged us three days courteously.
28:8 And it befell, that the father of Publius lay travailed with fevers and dysentery. To whom Paul entered, and when he had prayed, and laid his hands on him, he healed him. It fortuned that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever, and of a bloody flux to whom Paul entered in and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him. And so it was, that the father of Publius lay sick of the fever, & of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, & when he prayed, he laid his hands on him, and healed him. And it came to pass that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever, and of a bloody flux, to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.
28:9 And when this thing was done, all that in the isle had sicknesses, came to, and were cured. when this was done, other also which were diseased in the isle, came and were healed: When this then was done, other also in the isle, which had diseases, came to him and were healed, So when this was done, others also which had diseases in the Island, came, and were healed:
28:10 Which also honoured us in many worships, and to us shipping, inputted what things were necessary. and they did us great honour. And when we departed, they laded us with things necessary. Which also did us great honour: and when we departed, they laded us with things necessary. Who also honoured us with many honours, and when we departed, they laded us with such things as were necessary.
28:11 And after three months we shipped in a ship of Alexandria, that had wintered in the isle, to which was an excellent sign of Castor. After three months we sailed in a ship of Alexandry, which had wintered in the isle, whose badge was Castor and pollux. Now after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose badge was Castor and Pollux. And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the Isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.

28:14 Where when we found brethren, we were prayed to dwell there with them seven days. And so we came to Rome. where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days, and so came we to Rome. Where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days, & so we went toward Rome. Where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days: and so we went toward Rome.
28:15 And from thence, when brethren had heard, they came to us till to the market of Appii, and to the Three taverns. Whom when Paul had seen, he did thankings to God, and took trust. And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to Apiphorum, and three taverns, and met us. when Paul saw them he thanked God, and waxed bold. And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us at the Market of Appius, and at the Three taverns, whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and waxed bold. And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii forum, and the three Taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took courage.
28:16 And when we came to Rome, it was suffered to Paul to dwell by himself, with a knight keeping him. when we came to Rome, the under-captain delivered the prisoners to the chief captain of the host: but Paul was suffered to dwell alone with one soldier that kept him. So when we came to Rome, the Centurion delivered the prisoners to the general Captain: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him. And when we came to Rome, the Centurion delivered the prisoners to the Captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself, with a soldier that kept him.
28:17 And after the third day, he called together the first of the Jews. And when they came, he said to them, Men brethren, I did nothing against the people or custom of fathers, and I was bound at Jerusalem, and was betaken into the hands of Romans. It fortuned after three days Paul called the chief of the jews together. When they were come, he said unto them: Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or laws of our fathers: yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the romans. And the third day after, Paul called the chief of the Jews together: & when they were come, he said unto them, Men & brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or Laws of the fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.

28:18 Which when they had asked of me, would dismiss me, for that no cause of death was in me. Which when they had examined me would have let me go, because they found no cause of death in me: Who when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there was no cause of death in me. Who when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there was no cause of death in me.
28:19 But for Jews against-said, I was constrained to appeal to Caesar; not as having any thing to accuse my folk. but when the jews cried contrary: I was constrained to appeal unto Cesar. Not because I had ought to accuse my people of. But when the Jews spake contrary, I was constrained to appeal unto Cesar, not because I had ought to accuse my nation of. But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Cesar, not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.
28:20 Therefore for this cause I prayed to see you, and speak to you; for for the hope of Israel I am gird about with this chain. For this cause have I called for you to see you, and to speak with you. For I because of the hope of Israhel, am bound with this chain. For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to speak with you: for the hope of Israel’s sake, I am bound with this chain. For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to speak with you: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.
28:21 And they said to him, Neither we have received letters of thee from Judaea, neither any of brethren coming shewed, or spake any evil thing of thee.

For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears were thick of hearing, and their eyes have they closed, lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and should be converted, and I should heal them. For the heart of this people is waxed fat, and their ears are dull of hearing, and with their eyes have they winked, lest they should see with their eyes, & hear with their ears, & understand with their hearts, and should return that I might heal them.
