Therefore when they were come hither
To Caesarea, namely the chief priests and elders of the Jews:
without any delay on the morrow, I sat on the judgment seat:
that is, the next day after they came down, Festus went into the judgment hall, and took his place there, in order to hear this cause; which circumstance he mentions, to show how expeditious he was:
and I commanded the man to be brought forth:
from his place of confinement, to the hall, to answer for himself.
