View In My Bible
1 And Paul, looking fixedly at the Sanhedrin, said, My brothers, my life has been upright before God till this day. 2 And the high priest, Ananias, gave orders to those who were near him to give him a blow on the mouth. 3 Then Paul said to him, God will give blows to you, you whitewashed wall: are you here to be my judge by law, and by your orders am I given blows against the law? 4 And those who were near said, Do you say such words against God's high priest 5 And Paul said, Brother, I had no idea that he was the high priest: for it has been said, You may not say evil about the ruler of your people. 6 But when Paul saw that half of them were Sadducees and the rest Pharisees, he said in the Sanhedrin, Brothers, I am a Pharisee, and the son of Pharisees: I am here to be judged on the question of the hope of the coming back from the dead.
