2 And the chief priests and the leading men of the Jews abrought charges against Paul, and they were urging him,
8 while Paul said in his own defense, “aI have committed no offense either against the Law of the Jews or against the temple or against Caesar.”
10 But Paul said, “I am standing before Caesar’s atribunal, where I ought to be tried. I have done no wrong to the Jews, as you also very well know.
11 “If, then, I am a wrongdoer and have committed anything worthy of death, I do not refuse to die; but if none of those things is true of which these men accuse me, no one can hand me over to them. I aappeal to Caesar.”
12 Then when Festus had conferred with 1his council, he answered, “You have appealed to Caesar, to Caesar you shall go.”
14 While they were spending many days there, Festus laid Paul’s case before the king, saying, “There is a man who was aleft as a prisoner by Felix;
15 and when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews abrought charges against him, asking for a sentence of condemnation against him.
17 “So after they had assembled here, I did not delay, but on the next day took my seat on athe tribunal and ordered the man to be brought before me.
23 So, on the next day when aAgrippa came 1together with aBernice amid great pomp, and entered the auditorium 2accompanied by the 3commanders and the prominent men of the city, at the command of Festus, Paul was brought in.
24 Festus * said, “King Agrippa, and all you gentlemen here present with us, you see this man about whom aall the people of the Jews appealed to me, both at Jerusalem and here, loudly declaring that bhe ought not to live any longer.
26 “1Yet I have nothing definite about him to write to my lord. Therefore I have brought him before you all and especially before you, King Agrippa, so that after the investigation has taken place, I may have something to write.
