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. 24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. 25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, utemperance, and vjudgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; wwhen I have a convenient season, I will call for thee. 26 He hoped also that xmoney should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him ythe oftener, and communed with him. 27 *But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, zwilling to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.
