1 G1161 Then G67 Agrippa G5346 said G3972 to Paul, G2010 You are permitted G3004 to speak G4572 for yourself. G5119 Then G3972 Paul G1614 stretched G1614 forth G5495 the hand, G626 and answered for himself:
2 G2233 I think G1683 myself G3107 happy, G935 king G67 Agrippa, G626 because I shall answer G4594 for myself this G4594 day G1909 before G4012 you touching G3956 all G3739 the things whereof G1458 I am accused G2453 of the Jews:
3 G3122 Especially G1109 because I know you to be expert G3956 in all G1485 customs G2213 and questions G2596 which are among G2453 the Jews: G1352 why G1189 I beseech G191 you to hear G3116 me patiently.
4 G981 My manner G981 of life G3503 from my youth, G3588 which G575 was at G746 the first G1722 among G3450 my G1484 own nation G1722 at G2414 Jerusalem, G2467 know G3956 all G2453 the Jews;
5 G4267 Which knew G509 me from the beginning, G1437 if G2309 they would G3140 testify, G2596 that after G196 the most strait G139 sect G2356 of our religion G2198 I lived G5330 a Pharisee.
6 G3568 And now G2476 I stand G2919 and am judged G1680 for the hope G1860 of the promise G1096 made G2316 of God, G3962 to our fathers:
7 G3739 To which G1429 promise our twelve G1429 tribes, G1722 instantly G1616 G3000 serving G2250 God day G3571 and night, G1679 hope G2658 to come. G3739 For which G1679 hope’s G935 sake, king G67 Agrippa, G1458 I am accused G2453 of the Jews.
8 G5101 Why G2919 should it be thought G571 a thing incredible G2316 with you, that God G1453 should raise G3498 the dead?
9 G3303 I truly G3767 G1380 thought G1683 with myself, G1163 that I ought G4238 to do G4183 many G1727 things contrary G3686 to the name G2424 of Jesus G3478 of Nazareth.
10 G3739 Which G2532 thing I also G2414 did in Jerusalem: G4183 and many G40 of the saints G4160 did G2623 I shut G5438 up in prison, G2983 having received G1849 authority G749 from the chief G749 priests; G337 and when they were put G337 to death, G2702 I gave G5586 my voice G2702 against them.
11 G5097 And I punished G4178 them oft G3956 in every G4864 synagogue, G315 and compelled G987 them to blaspheme; G4057 and being exceedingly G1693 mad G1693 against G1377 them, I persecuted G2532 them even G1854 to strange G4172 cities.
12 G1722 Whereupon G3739 G4198 as I went G1154 to Damascus G1849 with authority G2011 and commission G749 from the chief G749 priests,
13 G2250 At midday, G3319 G935 O king, G1492 I saw G3598 in the way G5457 a light G3771 from heaven, G5228 above G2987 the brightness G2246 of the sun, G4034 shining G4034 round G4034 about G4198 me and them which journeyed with me.
14 G3956 And when we were all G2667 fallen G1093 to the earth, G191 I heard G5456 a voice G2980 speaking G3004 to me, and saying G1446 in the Hebrew G1258 tongue, G4569 Saul, G4569 Saul, G5101 why G1377 persecute G4642 you me? it is hard G2979 for you to kick G4314 against G2759 the pricks.
15 G2036 And I said, G5101 Who G1488 are G2962 you, Lord? G2036 And he said, G1510 I am G2424 Jesus G3739 whom G1377 you persecute.
16 G450 But rise, G2476 and stand G4228 on your feet: G3700 for I have appeared G5124 to you for this G4400 purpose, to make G5257 you a minister G3144 and a witness G5037 both G3739 of these things which G1492 you have seen, G3739 and of those things in the which G3700 I will appear to you;
17 G1807 Delivering G2992 you from the people, G1484 and from the Gentiles, G3739 to whom G3568 now G649 I send you,
18 G455 To open G3788 their eyes, G1994 and to turn G4655 them from darkness G5457 to light, G1849 and from the power G4567 of Satan G2316 to God, G2983 that they may receive G859 forgiveness G266 of sins, G2819 and inheritance G1722 among G37 them which are sanctified G4102 by faith that is in me.
19 G3606 Whereupon, G935 O king G67 Agrippa, G545 I was not disobedient G3770 to the heavenly G3705 vision:
20 G518 But showed G4412 first G1154 to them of Damascus, G2414 and at Jerusalem, G1519 and throughout G3956 all G5561 the coasts G2449 of Judaea, G1484 and then to the Gentiles, G3340 that they should repent G1994 and turn G2316 to God, G4238 and do G2041 works G514 meet G3341 for repentance.
21 G5130 For these G1752 causes G2453 the Jews G4815 caught G2411 me in the temple, G3987 and went G3985 about G1315 to kill me.
22 G3767 Having therefore G5177 obtained G1947 help G2316 of God, G2476 I continue G5026 to this G2250 day, G3140 witnessing G5037 both G3398 to small G3173 and great, G3004 saying G3762 none G1622 other G3739 things than those which G4396 the prophets G3475 and Moses G2980 did say G3195 should G1096 come:
23 G5547 That Christ G3805 should suffer, G4413 and that he should be the first G386 that should rise G3498 from the dead, G3195 and should G2605 show G5457 light G2992 to the people, G1484 and to the Gentiles.
24 G5023 And as he thus G626 spoke G5347 for himself, Festus G5346 said G3173 with a loud G5456 voice, G3972 Paul, G3105 you are beside G4183 yourself; much G1121 learning G4062 does make G1519 you mad. G3130
25 G5346 But he said, G3105 I am not mad, G2903 most G2903 noble G5347 Festus; G669 but speak G669 forth G4487 the words G225 of truth G4997 and soberness.
26 G935 For the king G1987 knows G5130 of these G4314 things, before G3739 whom G2532 also G2980 I speak G3955 freely: G3982 for I am persuaded G5100 that none G5130 of these G2990 things are hidden G5124 from him; for this G4238 thing was not done G1137 in a corner.
27 G935 King G67 Agrippa, G4100 believe G4396 you the prophets? G1492 I know G4100 that you believe.
28 G1161 Then G67 Agrippa G5346 said G3972 to Paul, G1722 Almost G3641 G3982 you persuade G5546 me to be a Christian.
29 G3972 And Paul G2036 said, G2172 I would G2316 to God, G3440 that not only G2532 you, but also G3956 all G191 that hear G4594 me this G4594 day, G2532 were both G1722 almost, G3641 G1722 and altogether G4183 G5108 such G1510 as I am, G3924 except G5130 these G1199 bonds.
30 G5023 And when he had thus G2036 spoken, G935 the king G450 rose G2232 up, and the governor, G959 and Bernice, G4775 and they that sat with them:
31 G402 And when they were gone G402 aside, G2980 they talked G4314 between G240 themselves, G3004 saying, G3778 This G444 man G4238 does G3762 nothing G514 worthy G2288 of death G2228 or G1199 of bonds.
