Acts 24:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 Everywhere and in every way, most excellent1 Felix, we acknowledge this with profound gratitude. 4 But in order not to weary you further, I would request that you be kind enough to hear us briefly. 5 "We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots2 among the Jews3 all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene4 sect5 6 and even tried to desecrate the temple;6 so we seized him. 8 Bya examining him yourself you will be able to learn the truth about all these charges we are bringing against him." 9 The Jews joined in the accusation,7 asserting that these things were true. 10 When the governor8 motioned for him to speak, Paul replied: "I know that for a number of years you have been a judge over this nation; so I gladly make my defense. 11 You can easily verify that no more than twelve days9 ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship. 12 My accusers did not find me arguing with anyone at the temple,10 or stirring up a crowd11 in the synagogues or anywhere else in the city. 13 And they cannot prove to you the charges they are now making against me.12
