Acts 24:10–23

10 Then Paul, after that dthe governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been *of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully sanswer for myself: 11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but ttwelve days since I uwent up to Jerusalem vfor to worship. 12 wAnd they neither found me in the temple xdisputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city: 13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. 14 But this I confess unto thee, that after ythe way which they call zheresy, so aworship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in bthe law and in the prophets: 15 And have chope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a cresurrection of the dead, dboth of the just and unjust. 16 And herein do I exercise myself, eto have always a conscience fvoid of offence toward God, and toward men. 17 Now gafter hmany years I came ito bring alms to my nation, and offerings. 18 jWhereupon kcertain Jews from lAsia found me purified in the temple, neither with multitude, nor with tumult. 19 mWho ought to have been here before thee, and object, if they had ought against me. 20 Or else let these same here say, if they have found any evil doing in me, nwhile I stood before the council, 21 Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, oTouching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day.

22 And when Felix heard these things, having more pperfect knowledge of qthat way, he deferred them, and said, rWhen Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will rrknow the uttermost of your matter. 23 And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and sto let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his tacquaintance to minister or come unto him.
