Acts 23:12-35 [ Verse 20 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
12 When it was day, the R1416 Jews formed a conspiracy F521 and bound R1417 themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink until they had killed Paul. 13 There were more than forty who formed this plot. 14 They came to the chief priests and the elders and said, "We have bound R1418 ourselves under a solemn oath to taste nothing until we have killed Paul. 15 "Now therefore, you and F522 the R1419 Council F523 notify the commander F524 to bring him down to you, as though you were going to determine his case by a more thorough investigation; and we for our part are ready to slay him before he comes near the place." 16 But the son of Paul's sister heard of their ambush, and F525 he came and entered the R1420 barracks and told Paul. 17 Paul called one of the centurions to him and said, "Lead this young man to the commander, F526 for he has something to report to him." 18 So he took him and led him to the commander F527 and said, "Paul the R1421 prisoner called me to him and asked me to lead this young man to you since he has something to tell you." 19 The commander F528 took him by the hand and stepping aside, began to inquire of him privately, "What is it that you have to report to me?" 20 And he said, "The R1422 Jews have agreed to ask you to bring Paul down tomorrow to the R1423 Council, F529 as though they were going to inquire somewhat more thoroughly about him. 21 "So do not listen F530 to them, for more than forty of them are lying R1424 in wait for him who have bound R1425 themselves under a curse not to eat or drink until they slay him; and now they are ready and waiting for the promise from you." 22 So the commander F531 let the young man go, instructing him, "Tell no one that you have notified me of these things." 23 And he called to him two of the centurions and said, "Get two hundred soldiers ready by the F532 third hour of the night to proceed to Caesarea, R1426 with F533 seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen." F534 24 They were also to provide mounts to put Paul on and bring him safely to Felix R1427 the governor. 25 And he wrote a letter having this form: 26 "Claudius Lysias, to the most R1428 excellent governor Felix, greetings. R1429 27 "When this man was arrested by the Jews and was about to be slain by them, I R1430 came up to them with the troops and rescued him, having R1431 learned that he was a Roman. 28 "And wanting R1432 to ascertain the charge for which they were accusing him, I brought R1433 him down to their Council; R1434 F535 29 and I found him to be accused over questions R1435 about their Law, but under F536 no R1436 accusation deserving death or imprisonment. F537 30 "When I was informed R1437 that there would be a R1438 plot against the man, I sent him to you at once, also instructing his R1439 accusers to bring F538 charges against him before you." 31 So the soldiers, in accordance with their orders, took Paul and brought him by night to Antipatris. 32 But the next day, leaving the R1440 horsemen to go on with him, they returned to the R1441 barracks. 33 When these had come to Caesarea R1442 and delivered the letter to the R1443 governor, they also presented Paul to him. 34 When he had read it, he asked from what province R1444 he was, and when he learned that he R1445 was from Cilicia, 35 he said, "I will give you a hearing after your accusers R1446 arrive also," giving orders for him to be kept R1447 in Herod's Praetorium.
