View In My Bible
9 1The Jews also joined in the attack, asserting that these things were so. 10 When 2the governor had nodded for him to speak, Paul responded: "K nowing that for many years you have been a judge to this nation, I cheerfully make my defense, 11 since you can take note of the fact that no more than 3twelve days ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship. 12 "4Neither in the temple, nor in the synagogues, nor in the city itself did they find me carrying on a discussion with anyone or 5causing aa riot. 13 "6Nor can they prove to you the charges of which they now accuse me. 14 "But this I admit to you, that according to 7the Way which they call a 8sect I do serve b9the God of our fathers, 10believing everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets; 15 having a hope in God, which 11these men cherish themselves, that there shall certainly be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. 16 "In view of this, 12I also cdo my best to maintain always a blameless conscience both before God and before men. 17 "Now 13after several years I 14came to bring dalms to my nation and to present offerings; 18 in which they found me occupied in the temple, having been 15purified, without any 16crowd or uproar. But there were some 17Jews from eAsia - 19 who ought to have been present before you and to 18make accusation, if they should have anything against me.
