1 G1161 G67 Agrippa G5346 said G4314 to G3972 Paul, G4671 "You G2010 may G3004 speak G5228 for G4572 yourself." G5119 Then G3972 Paul G1614 stretched out G5495 his hand, G626 and made his defense.
2 G2233 "I think G1683 myself G3107 happy, G935 King G67 Agrippa, G3195 that I am G626 to make my defense G1909 before G4675 you G4594 this day G4012 concerning G3956 all the things G3739 that G1458 I am accused G5259 by G2453 the Jews,
3 G3122 especially G4571 because you G5607 are 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 G3303 "Indeed, G3956 all G2453 the Jews G2467 know G3450 my G3767 way of life G1537 from G3503 my youth G3588 up, which G1096 was G575 from G746 the beginning G1722 among G3450 my own G1484 nation G1722 and at G2414 Jerusalem;
5 G4267 having known G3165 me G509 from the first, G1437 if G2309 they are willing G3140 to testify, G3754 that G2596 after G196 the strictest G139 sect G2251 of our G2356 religion G2198 I lived G5330 a Pharisee.
6 G2532 G3568 Now G2476 I stand G2919 here to be judged G1909 for G1680 the hope G1860 of the promise G1096 made G5259 by G2316 God G4314 to G3962 our fathers,
7 G1519 G3739 which G2257 our G1722 twelve tribes, G1616 earnestly G3000 serving G3571 night G2532 and G2250 day, G1679 hope G2658 to attain. G4012 Concerning G3739 this G1680 hope G1458 I am accused G5259 by G2453 the Jews, G935 King G67 Agrippa!
8 G5101 Why G2919 is it judged G571 incredible G3844 with G5213 you, G1487 if G2316 God G1453 does raise G3498 the dead?
9 G1473 "I G1683 myself G3767 most certainly G3303 G1380 thought 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 G1473 I G2623 both G2623 shut up G4183 many G40 of the saints G5438 in prisons, 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 G5097 Punishing G846 them G4178 often G2596 in G3956 all G4864 the synagogues, G315 I tried to make G987 them blaspheme. G5037 G1693 Being G4057 exceedingly G1693 enraged G846 against them, G1377 I persecuted G2193 them even G2532 G1519 to G1854 foreign G4172 cities.
12 G3739 "Whereupon G2532 as G4198 I traveled G1519 to G1154 Damascus G3326 with G1849 the authority G2532 and G2011 commission G3844 from G749 the chief priests,
13 G2250 at G3319 noon, G935 O king, G1492 I saw G2596 on G3598 the way G5457 a light G5228 from the G3771 sky, G2987 brighter G2246 than the sun, G4034 shining around G3165 me G2532 and G3588 those G4198 who traveled G4862 with G1698 me.
14 G1161 When G2257 we G3956 had all G2667 fallen G1519 to G1093 the earth, G191 I heard G5456 a voice G2980 saying G4314 to G3165 me G2532 G3004 G1446 in the Hebrew G1258 language, G4549 "‘Saul, G4549 Saul, G5101 why G1377 are you persecuting G3165 me? G4642 It is hard G4671 for you G2979 to kick G4314 against G2759 the goads.'"
15 G1161 G1473 "I G2036 said, G5101 ‘Who G1488 are you, G2962 Lord?' G1161 G2036 "He said, G1473 "‘I G1510 am G2424 Jesus, G3739 whom G4771 you G1377 are persecuting.
16 G235 But G450 arise, G2532 and G2476 stand G1909 on G4675 your G4228 feet, G1063 for G3700 I have appeared G4671 to you G1519 for G5124 this purpose: G4400 to appoint G4571 you G5257 a servant G2532 and G3144 a witness G5037 both G3739 of the things which G1492 you have seen, G5037 and G3739 of the things which G3700 I will reveal G4671 to you;
17 G1807 delivering G4571 you G1537 from G2992 the people, G2532 and G1484 from the Gentiles, G1519 to G3739 whom G3568 G649 I send G4571 you,
18 G455 to open G846 their G3788 eyes, G3588 that G1994 they may turn G575 from G4655 darkness G1519 to G5457 light G2532 and G1849 from the power G4567 of Satan G1909 to G2316 God, G846 that they G2983 may receive G859 remission G266 of sins G2532 and G2819 an inheritance G1722 among G3588 those who G37 are sanctified G4102 by faith G1519 in G1691 me.'"
19 G3606 "Therefore, G935 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 G2414 at Jerusalem, G2532 and G1519 throughout G3956 all G5561 the country G2449 of Judea, G5037 and G1484 also to the Gentiles, G3340 that they should repent G2532 and G1994 turn G1909 to G2316 God, G4238 doing G2041 works G514 worthy G3341 of repentance.
21 G1752 For G5130 this reason G2453 the Jews G4815 seized G3165 me G1722 in G2411 the temple, G3987 and tried G1315 to kill me.
22 G5177 Having G3767 therefore G5177 obtained G1947 the help G3844 that is from G2316 God, G2476 I stand G891 to G3778 this G2250 day G3140 testifying G5037 both G3398 to small G2532 and G3173 great, G3004 saying G3762 nothing G1622 G5037 but G3739 what G4396 the prophets G2532 and G3475 Moses G2980 said G3195 would G1096 happen,
23 G1487 how G5547 the Christ G3195 must G3805 suffer, G1487 and how, G386 by the resurrection G1537 of G3498 the dead, G4413 he would be first G2605 to proclaim G5457 light G2992 both to these people G2532 and G1484 to the Gentiles."
24 G1161 As G846 he G5023 thus G626 made his defense, G5347 Festus G5346 said G3173 with a loud G5456 voice, G3972 "Paul, G3105 you are crazy! Your G4183 great G1121 learning G4062 is driving G4571 you G1519 G3130 insane!"
25 G1161 But G5346 he said, G3105 "I am G3756 not G3105 crazy, G2903 most excellent G5347 Festus, G235 but G669 boldly declare G4487 words G225 of truth G2532 and G4997 reasonableness.
26 G1063 For G935 the king G1987 knows G4012 of G5130 these things, G4314 to G3739 whom G2532 also G2980 I speak G3955 freely. G1063 For G5100 I G3982 am persuaded G3756 that none G5100 G5130 of these things G2990 is hidden from G846 him, G1063 for G3756 this has not G2076 been G4238 done G1722 in G1137 a corner.
27 G935 King G67 Agrippa, G4100 do you G4396 believe the prophets? G1492 I know G3754 that G4100 you believe."
28 G1161 G67 Agrippa G5346 said G4314 to G1722 Paul, G3982 "With a little persuasion G1096 are G1096 you trying to make G3165 me G5546 a Christian?"
29 G3972 Paul G2036 said, G302 "I G2172 pray G302 G2316 to God, G2172 that G3756 whether with little or with much, not G3440 only G4571 you, G235 but G2532 also G3956 all G191 that hear G3450 me G4594 this day, G2532 G1722 might G4183 become G5108 such G3697 as G1722 I G1510 am, G3924 except G5130 for these G1199 bonds."
30 G2532 The G935 king G450 rose up G2532 with G2232 the governor, G2532 and G959 Bernice, G5037 and G3588 those G4775 who sat G846 with them.
31 G2532 When G402 they had withdrawn, G2980 they spoke G4314 one G240 to another, G3754 saying, G3778 "This G444 man G4238 does G3762 nothing G514 worthy G2288 of death G2228 or G1199 of bonds."
