1 G1161 Then G67 Agrippa G5346 said [G5713] G4314 unto G3972 Paul G4671 , Thou G2010 art permitted [G5743] G3004 to speak [G5721] G5228 for G4572 thyself G5119 . Then G3972 Paul G1614 stretched forth [G5660] G5495 the hand G626 , and answered for himself [G5711] :
2 G2233 I think [G5766] G1683 myself G3107 happy G935 , king G67 Agrippa G3195 , because I shall [G5723] G626 answer for myself [G5738] G4594 this day G1909 before G4675 thee G4012 touching G3956 all the things G3739 whereof G1458 I am accused [G5743] G5259 of G2453 the Jews:
3 G3122 Especially G1492 because I know [G5761] G4571 thee G5607 to be [G5752] G1109 expert G5037 G3956 in all G1485 customs G2532 and G2213 questions G2596 which are among G2453 the Jews G1352 : wherefore G1189 I beseech [G5736] G4675 thee G191 to hear [G5658] G3450 me G3116 patiently.
4 G3450 My G3303 manner G3767 G981 of life G1537 from G3503 my youth G3588 , which G1096 was [G5637] G575 at G746 the first G1722 among G3450 mine G1484 own nation G1722 at G2414 Jerusalem G2467 , know [G5758] G3956 all G2453 the Jews;
5 G4267 Which knew [G5723] G3165 me G509 from the beginning G1437 , if G2309 they would [G5725] G3140 testify [G5721] G3754 , that G2596 after G196 the most straitest G139 sect G2251 of our G2356 religion G2198 I lived [G5656] G5330 a Pharisee.
6 G2532 And G3568 now G2476 I stand [G5758] G2919 and am judged [G5746] G1909 for G1680 the hope G1860 of the promise G1096 made [G5637] G5259 of G2316 God G4314 unto G3962 our fathers:
7 G1519 Unto G3739 which G2257 promise our G1429 twelve tribes G1722 , instantly G1616 G3000 serving [G5723] G2250 God day G2532 and G3571 night G1679 , hope [G5719] G2658 to come [G5658] G4012 . For G3739 which G1680 hope's sake G935 , king G67 Agrippa G1458 , I am accused [G5743] G5259 of G2453 the Jews.
8 G5101 Why G2919 should it be thought a thing [G5743] G571 incredible G3844 with G5213 you G1487 , that G2316 God G1453 should raise [G5719] G3498 the dead?
9 G1473 I G3303 verily G3767 G1380 thought [G5656] G1683 with myself G1163 , that I ought [G5750] G4238 to do [G5658] G4183 many things G1727 contrary G4314 to G3686 the name G2424 of Jesus G3480 of Nazareth.
10 G3739 Which thing G4160 I G2532 also G4160 did [G5656] G1722 in G2414 Jerusalem G2532 : and G4183 many G40 of the saints G2623 did G1473 I G2623 shut up [G5656] G5438 in prison G2983 , having received [G5631] G1849 authority G3844 from G749 the chief priests G5037 ; and G846 when they G337 were put to death [G5746] G2702 , I gave [G5656] G5586 my voice against them .
11 G2532 And G5097 I punished [G5723] G846 them G4178 oft G2596 in G3956 every G4864 synagogue G315 , and compelled [G5707] G987 them to blaspheme [G5721] G5037 ; and G1693 being G4057 exceedingly G1693 mad against [G5740] G846 them G1377 , I persecuted [G5707] G2532 them even G1519 unto G2193 G1854 strange G4172 cities.
12 G2532 G1722 Whereupon G3739 G4198 as I went [G5740] G1519 to G1154 Damascus G3326 with G1849 authority G2532 and G2011 commission G3844 from G749 the chief priests,
13 G2250 At midday G3319 G935 , O king G1492 , I saw [G5627] G2596 in G3598 the way G5457 a light G3771 from heaven G5228 , above G2987 the brightness G2246 of the sun G4034 , shining round about [G5660] G3165 me G2532 and G4198 them which journeyed [G5740] G4862 with G1698 me.
14 G1161 And G2257 when we G2667 were G3956 all G2667 fallen [G5631] G1519 to G1093 the earth G191 , I heard [G5656] G5456 a voice G2980 speaking [G5723] G4314 unto G3165 me G2532 , and G3004 saying [G5723] G1446 in the Hebrew G1258 tongue G4549 , Saul G4549 , Saul G5101 , why G1377 persecutest thou [G5719] G3165 me G4642 ? it is hard G4671 for thee G2979 to kick [G5721] G4314 against G2759 the pricks.
15 G1161 And G1473 I G2036 said [G5627] G5101 , Who G1488 art thou [G5748] G2962 , Lord G1161 ? And G2036 he said [G5627] G1473 , I G1510 am [G5748] G2424 Jesus G3739 whom G4771 thou G1377 persecutest [G5719] .
16 G235 But G450 rise [G5628] G2532 , and G2476 stand [G5628] G1909 upon G4675 thy G4228 feet G1063 : for G3700 I have appeared [G5681] G4671 unto thee G1519 for G5124 this purpose G4400 , to make [G5664] G4571 thee G5257 a minister G2532 and G3144 a witness G5037 both G3739 of these things which G1492 thou hast seen [G5627] G5037 , and G3739 of those things in the which G3700 I will appear [G5701] G4671 unto thee;
17 G1807 Delivering [G5734] G4571 thee G1537 from G2992 the people G2532 , and G1484 from the Gentiles G1519 , unto G3739 whom G3568 now G649 I send [G5719] G4571 thee,
18 G455 To open [G5658] G846 their G3788 eyes G1994 , and to turn [G5658] 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 [G5629] G859 forgiveness G266 of sins G2532 , and G2819 inheritance G1722 among G37 them which are sanctified [G5772] G4102 by faith G1519 that is in G1691 me.
19 G3606 Whereupon G935 , O king G67 Agrippa G1096 , I was [G5633] G3756 not G545 disobedient G3770 unto the heavenly G3701 vision:
20 G235 But G518 shewed [G5723] [G5625] G518 [G5707] G4412 first G1722 unto them of G1154 Damascus G2532 , and G2414 at Jerusalem G5037 , and G1519 throughout G3956 all G5561 the coasts G2449 of Judaea G2532 , and G1484 then to the Gentiles G3340 , that they should repent [G5721] G2532 and G1994 turn [G5721] G1909 to G2316 God G4238 , and do [G5723] G2041 works G514 meet G3341 for repentance.
21 G1752 For G5130 these causes G2453 the Jews G4815 caught [G5642] G3165 me G1722 in G2411 the temple G3987 , and went about [G5711] G1315 to kill [G5670] me .
22 G5177 Having G3767 therefore G5177 obtained [G5631] G1947 help G3844 of G2316 God G2476 , I continue [G5758] G891 unto G5026 this G2250 day G3140 , witnessing [G5746] G5037 both G3398 to small G2532 and G3173 great G3004 , saying [G5723] G3762 none other things G1622 than G3739 those which G5037 G4396 the prophets G2532 and G3475 Moses G2980 did say [G5656] G3195 should [G5723] G1096 come [G5738] :
23 G1487 That G5547 Christ G3805 should suffer G1487 , and that G4413 he should be the first G386 that should rise G1537 from G3498 the dead G3195 , and should [G5719] G2605 shew [G5721] G5457 light G2992 unto the people G2532 , and G1484 to the Gentiles.
24 G1161 And G846 as he G5023 thus G626 spake for himself [G5740] G5347 , Festus G5346 said [G5713] G3173 with a loud G5456 voice G3972 , Paul G3105 , thou art beside thyself [G5736] G4183 ; much G1121 learning G4062 doth make [G5719] G4571 thee G1519 mad G3130 .
25 G1161 But G5346 he said [G5748] G3105 , I am G3756 not G3105 mad [G5736] G2903 , most noble G5347 Festus G235 ; but G669 speak forth [G5736] G4487 the words G225 of truth G2532 and G4997 soberness.
26 G1063 For G935 the king G1987 knoweth [G5736] G4012 of G5130 these G4314 things, before G3739 whom G2532 also G2980 I speak [G5719] G3955 freely [G5740] G1063 : for G3982 I am persuaded [G5743] G3756 that G5100 none G3762 G5130 of these things G2990 are hidden [G5721] G846 from him G1063 ; for G5124 this thing G2076 was [G5748] G3756 not G4238 done [G5772] G1722 in G1137 a corner.
27 G935 King G67 Agrippa G4100 , believest thou [G5719] G4396 the prophets G1492 ? I know [G5758] G3754 that G4100 thou believest [G5719] .
28 G1161 Then G67 Agrippa G5346 said [G5713] G4314 unto G3972 Paul G1722 , Almost G3641 G3982 thou persuadest [G5719] G3165 me G1096 to be [G5635] G5546 a Christian.
29 G1161 And G3972 Paul G2036 said [G5627] G302 , I would G2172 [G5665] G2316 to God G3756 , that not G3440 only G4571 thou G235 , but G2532 also G3956 all G191 that hear [G5723] G3450 me G4594 this day G1096 , were [G5635] G2532 both G1722 almost G3641 G2532 , and G1722 altogether G4183 G5108 such G3697 as G2504 G1510 I am [G5748] G3924 , except G5130 these G1199 bonds.
30 G2532 And G846 when he G2036 had G5023 thus G2036 spoken [G5631] G935 , the king G450 rose up [G5627] G2532 , and G2232 the governor G5037 , and G959 Bernice G2532 , and G4775 they that sat with [G5740] G846 them:
31 G2532 And G402 when they were gone aside [G5660] G2980 , they talked [G5707] G4314 between G240 themselves G3004 , saying [G5723] G3754 , G3778 This G444 man G4238 doeth [G5719] G3762 nothing G514 worthy G2288 of death G2228 or G1199 of bonds.
