- 13 And after (5637) certain days king Agrippa and Bernice came (5656) unto Caesarea to salute (5697) Festus. 14 And when they had been (5707) there many days, Festus declared (5639) Paul's cause unto the king, saying (5723), There is (5748) a certain man left (5772) in bonds by Felix: 15 About whom, when I was (5637) at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed (5656) me, desiring (5734) to have judgment against him. 16 To whom I answered * (5662), It is (5748) not the manner of the Romans to deliver (5738) any man to die, before that he which is accused (5746) have (5722) the accusers face to face * *, and have (5630) licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him. 17 Therefore, when they were come (5631) hither, without (5671) any delay on the morrow I sat (5660) on the judgment seat, and commanded (5656) the man to be brought forth (5683). 18 Against whom when the accusers stood up (5685), they brought (5707) none accusation of such things as I supposed (5707): 19 But had (5707) certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus, which was dead (5761), whom Paul affirmed (5707) to be alive (5721). 20 And because I doubted (5734) of such manner of questions, I asked (5707) him whether he would (5739) go (5738) to Jerusalem, and there be judged (5745) of these matters. 21 But when Paul had appealed (5671) to be reserved * (5683) unto the hearing of Augustus, I commanded (5656) him to be kept (5745) till I might send (5661) him to Caesar. 22 Then Agrippa said (5713) unto Festus, I would (5711) also hear (5658) the man myself. To morrow *, said (5748) he, thou shalt hear (5695) him. 23 And on the morrow, when Agrippa was come (5631), and Bernice, with great pomp, and was entered (5631) into the place of hearing, with the chief captains, and principal * * men of (5752) the city, at Festus' commandment (5660) Paul was brought forth (5681). 24 And Festus said (5748), King Agrippa, and all men which are here present (5752) with us, ye see (5719) (5720) this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews have dealt (5627) with me, both at Jerusalem, and also here, crying (5723) that he ought (5750) not to live (5721) any longer. 25 But when I found (5642) that he had committed (5760) nothing worthy of death, and that he himself hath appealed to (5671) Augustus, I have determined (5656) to send (5721) him. 26 Of whom I have (5719) no certain thing to write (5658) unto my lord. Wherefore I have brought him forth (5627) before you, and specially before thee, O king Agrippa, that, after examination had (5637), I might have (5632) somewhat to write (5658). 27 For it seemeth (5719) to me unreasonable to send (5723) a prisoner, and not withal to signify (5658) the crimes laid against him.
