1 G1161 Then G67 Agrippa G5346 said G4314 unto G3972 Paul, G4671 You G2010 are permitted G3004 to speak G5228 for G4572 yourself. G5119 Then G3972 Paul G1614 stretched forth G5495 his hand, G626 and answered for himself:
2 G2233 I think G1683 myself G3107 happy, G935 king G67 Agrippa, G3195 because I shall G626 answer for myself G4594 this day G1909 before G4675 you G4012 touching G3956 all the things G3739 whereof G1458 I am accused G5259 by G2453 the Jews:
3 G3122 Especially G4571 because I know you G5607 to be G1109 expert G3956 in all G5037 customs G2532 and G1352 questions G2596 which are G2453 among G1485 the Jews: G1189 therefore G4675 I beg G3116 you G191 to hear G3450 me patiently.
4 G3450 My G3767 manner of life G3303 G1537 from G3503 my youth, G3588 which G1096 was G575 at G746 the first G1722 among G3450 my own G1484 nation G1722 at G2414 Jerusalem, G2467 know G3956 all G2453 the Jews;
5 G4267 Which knew G3165 me G509 from the beginning, G1437 if G2309 they would G3140 testify, G3754 that G2596 after G196 the most strictest G139 sect G2251 of our G2356 religion G2198 I lived G5330 a Pharisee.
6 G2532 And G3568 now G2476 I stand G2919 and am judged G1909 for G1680 the hope G1860 of the promise G1096 made G5259 by G2316 God G4314 to G3962 our fathers:
7 G1519 Unto G3739 which G2257 promise our G1722 twelve tribes, G1616 earnestly G3000 serving G2250 God day G2532 and G3571 night, G1679 hope G2658 to come. G4012 For G3739 which G1680 hope's sake, G935 king G67 Agrippa, G1458 I am accused G5259 by G2453 the Jews.
8 G5101 Why G2919 should it be thought G571 a thing incredible G3844 with G5213 you, G1487 that G2316 God G1453 should raise G3498 the dead?
9 G1473 I G3767 truly G3303 G1380 thought G1683 G1163 that I ought G4238 to do G4183 many things G1727 contrary G4314 to G3686 the name G2424 of Jesus G3480 of Nazareth.
10 G3739 This G4160 I G2532 also G4160 did G1722 in G2414 Jerusalem: G2532 and G4183 many G40 of the saints G2623 did G1473 I G2623 shut up G5438 in prison, G2983 having received G1849 authority G3844 from G749 the chief priests; G5037 and G846 when they G337 were put to death, G2702 I gave G5586 my vote G2702 against them.
11 G2532 And G5097 I punished G846 them G4178 often G2596 in G3956 every G4864 synagogue, G315 and compelled G987 them to blaspheme; G5037 and G1693 being G4057 exceedingly G1693 mad G846 against them, G1377 I persecuted G2193 them even G2532 G1519 unto G1854 strange G4172 cities.
12 G3739 Whereupon G2532 as G4198 I went G1519 to G1154 Damascus G3326 with G1849 authority G2532 and G2011 commission G3844 from G749 the chief priests,
13 G2250 At G3319 midday, G935 O king, G1492 I saw G2596 in G3598 the way G5457 a light G3771 from heaven, G5228 brighter G2987 than the brightness G2246 of the sun, G4034 shining round about G3165 me G2532 and G3588 them G4198 which journeyed G4862 with G1698 me.
14 G1161 And G2257 when we G3956 had all G2667 fallen G1519 to G1093 the earth, G191 I heard G5456 a voice G2980 speaking G4314 unto G3165 me, G2532 and G3004 saying G1446 in the Hebrew G1258 tongue, G4549 Saul, G4549 Saul, G5101 why G1377 persecute G3165 me? G4642 It is hard G4671 for you G2979 to kick G4314 against G2759 the pricks.
15 G1161 And G1473 I G2036 said, G5101 Who G1488 are you, G2962 Lord? G1161 And G2036 he said, G1473 I G1510 am G2424 Jesus G3739 whom G4771 you G1377 persecute.
16 G235 But G450 rise, G2532 and G2476 stand G1909 upon G4675 your G4228 feet: G1063 for G3700 I have appeared G4671 unto you G1519 for G5124 this purpose, G4400 to make G4571 you G5257 a minister G2532 and G3144 a witness G5037 both G3739 of these things which G1492 you have seen, G5037 and G3739 of those things which G3700 I will show G4671 to you;
17 G1807 Delivering G4571 you G1537 from G2992 the people, G2532 and G1484 from the Gentiles, G1519 unto G3739 whom G3568 now G649 I send G4571 you,
18 G455 To open G846 their G3788 eyes, G3588 and G1994 to turn G575 them from G4655 darkness G1519 to G5457 light, G2532 and G1849 from the power G4567 of Satan G1909 unto G2316 God, G846 that they G2983 may receive G859 forgiveness G266 of sins, G2532 and G2819 inheritance G1722 among G3588 them which G37 are sanctified G4102 by faith G1519 that is in G1691 me.
19 G3606 Whereupon, G935 O king G67 Agrippa, G1096 I was G3756 not G545 disobedient G3770 to the heavenly G3701 vision:
20 G235 But G518 declared G4412 first G3588 to them G1722 of G1154 Damascus, G2532 and G2414 at Jerusalem, G5037 and G1519 throughout G3956 all G5561 the coasts G2449 of Judæa, G2532 and G1484 then to the Nations, G3340 that they should repent G2532 and G1994 turn G1909 to G2316 God, G4238 and do G2041 works G514 meet G3341 for repentance.
21 G1752 For G5130 these causes G2453 the Jews G4815 caught G3165 me G1722 in G2411 the temple, G3987 and went about G1315 to kill me.
22 G5177 Having G3767 therefore G5177 obtained G1947 help G3844 from G2316 God, G2476 I continue G891 to G3778 this G2250 day, G3140 witnessing G5037 both G3398 to small G2532 and G3173 great, G3004 saying G3762 no G1622 other things G5037 than G3739 those which G4396 the prophets G2532 and G3475 Moses G2980 did say G3195 should G1096 come:
23 G1487 That G5547 Christ G3195 must G3805 suffer, G1487 and that G4413 he should be the first G386 that should rise G1537 from G3498 the dead, G2605 and should proclaim G5457 light G2992 to the people, G2532 and G1484 to the Nations.
24 G1161 And G846 as he G5023 thus G626 spoke for himself, G5347 Festus G5346 said G3173 with a loud G5456 voice, G3972 Paul, G3105 you are beside yourself; G4183 much G1121 learning G4062 does make G4571 you G1519 G3130 mad.
25 G1161 But G5346 he said, G3105 I am G3756 not G3105 mad, G2903 most noble G5347 Festus; G235 but G669 speak forth G4487 the words G225 of truth G2532 and G4997 soberness.
26 G1063 For G935 the king G1987 knows G4012 of G5130 these things, G4314 before G3739 whom G2532 also G2980 I speak G3955 freely: G1063 for G3982 I am persuaded G3756 that none G5100 G5130 of these things G2990 are hidden from G846 him; G1063 for G5124 this thing G2076 was G3756 not G4238 done G1722 in G1137 a corner.
27 G935 King G67 Agrippa, G4100 believe you G4396 the prophets? G1492 I know G3754 that G4100 you believe.
28 G1161 Then G67 Agrippa G5346 said G4314 to G1722 Paul, G3641 Almost G3982 you persuade G3165 me G1096 to be G5546 a Christian.
29 G1161 And G3972 Paul G2036 said, G2172 I would G302 G2316 to God, G2172 that G3756 not G3440 only G4571 you, G235 but G2532 also G3956 all G191 that hear G3450 me G4594 this day, G1096 were G2532 both G1722 G3641 almost, G2532 and G1722 G4183 altogether G5108 such G3697 as G2504 I G1510 am, G3924 except G5130 these G1199 bonds.
30 G2532 And G846 when he G2036 had G5023 thus G2036 spoken, G935 the king G450 rose up, G2532 and G2232 the governor, G5037 and G959 Bernice, G2532 and G3588 they G4775 that sat G846 with them:
31 G2532 And G402 when they were gone aside, G2980 they talked G4314 between G240 themselves, G3754 saying, G3778 This G444 man G4238 does G3762 nothing G514 worthy G2288 of death G2228 or G1199 of bonds.
