But while Gallio was 1proconsul of 2Achaia, 3the Jews with oneaccordrose up againstPaul and brought him before4the judgmentseat,
13saying, "Thismanpersuadesmen to worshipGodcontrary to 5the law."
But when Paul was about to 6open his mouth, Galliosaid to the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrongor of viciouscrime, OJews, it would be reasonable for me to put up with you;
but if there are 7questionsaboutwords and names and your own law, lookafter it yourselves ; I amunwilling to be a judge of these matters."
And he drove them away from 8the judgmentseat.
And they alltookhold of 9Sosthenes, 10the leader of the synagogue, and began beating him in front of 11the judgmentseat. But Gallio was not concerned about any of thesethings.
