12 quod cum audissemus rogabamus nos et qui loci illius erant ne ascenderet Hierosolymam 12 When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem.
13 tunc respondit Paulus et dixit quid facitis flentes et adfligentes cor meum ego enim non solum alligari sed et mori in Hierusalem paratus sum propter nomen Domini Iesu 13 Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."

Then they said to Paul: "You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law.

Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them.
27 dum autem septem dies consummarentur hii qui de Asia erant Iudaei cum vidissent eum in templo concitaverunt omnem populum et iniecerunt ei manus clamantes 27 When the seven days were nearly over, some Jews from the province of Asia saw Paul at the temple. They stirred up the whole crowd and seized him,
28 viri israhelitae adiuvate hic est homo qui adversus populum et legem et locum hunc omnes ubique docens insuper et gentiles induxit in templum et violavit sanctum locum istum 28 shouting, "Men of Israel, help us! This is the man who teaches all men everywhere against our people and our law and this place. And besides, he has brought Greeks into the temple area and defiled this holy place."
29 viderant enim Trophimum Ephesium in civitate cum ipso quem aestimaverunt quoniam in templum induxisset Paulus 29 (They had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with Paul and assumed that Paul had brought him into the temple area.)
30 commotaque est civitas tota et facta est concursio populi et adprehendentes Paulum trahebant eum extra templum et statim clausae sunt ianuae 30 The whole city was aroused, and the people came running from all directions. Seizing Paul, they dragged him from the temple, and immediately the gates were shut.
31 quaerentibus autem eum occidere nuntiatum est tribuno cohortis quia tota confunditur Hierusalem 31 While they were trying to kill him, news reached the commander of the Roman troops that the whole city of Jerusalem was in an uproar.
32 qui statim adsumptis militibus et centurionibus decucurrit ad illos qui cum vidissent tribunum et milites cessaverunt percutere Paulum 32 He at once took some officers and soldiers and ran down to the crowd. When the rioters saw the commander and his soldiers, they stopped beating Paul.
33 tunc accedens tribunus adprehendit eum et iussit alligari catenis duabus et interrogabat quis esset et quid fecisset 33 The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. Then he asked who he was and what he had done.
34 alii autem aliud clamabant in turba et cum non posset certum cognoscere prae tumultu iussit duci eum in castra 34 Some in the crowd shouted one thing and some another, and since the commander could not get at the truth because of the uproar, he ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks.
35 et cum venisset ad gradus contigit ut portaretur a militibus propter vim populi 35 When Paul reached the steps, the violence of the mob was so great he had to be carried by the soldiers.
36 sequebatur enim multitudo populi clamans tolle eum 36 The crowd that followed kept shouting, "Away with him!"
37 et cum coepisset induci in castra Paulus dicit tribuno si licet mihi loqui aliquid ad te qui dixit graece nosti 37 As the soldiers were about to take Paul into the barracks, he asked the commander, "May I say something to you?" "Do you speak Greek?" he replied.

40 et cum ille permisisset Paulus stans in gradibus annuit manu ad plebem et magno silentio facto adlocutus est hebraea lingua dicens 40 Having received the commander's permission, Paul stood on the steps and motioned to the crowd. When they were all silent, he said to them in Aramaic:
