Paul the prisoner (o desmio Paulo). Bound (desmio) to a soldier, but not with two chains ( John 21:33 ), and with some freedom to see his friends as later ( John 28:16 ), in military custody (custodia militaris). This was better than custodia publica (public custody), the common prison, but more confining. Who hath something to say to thee (econta ti lalhsai soi). Same idiom as in verse John 1719 , but lalhsai here instead of apaggeilai.
