Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a united attack against Paul and brought him to the judge's bench. 12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a united attack on Paul and brought him into court.
13 "This man," they said, "persuades people to worship God contrary to the law!" 13 "This man," they charged, "is persuading the people to worship God in ways contrary to the law."
14 And as Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If it were a matter of a crime or of moral evil, it would be reasonable for me to put up with you Jews. 14 Just as Paul was about to speak, Gallio said to the Jews, "If you Jews were making a complaint about some misdemeanor or serious crime, it would be reasonable for me to listen to you.
15 But if these are questions about words, names, and your own law, see to it yourselves. I don't want to be a judge of such things." 15 But since it involves questions about words and names and your own law--settle the matter yourselves. I will not be a judge of such things."
16 So he drove them from the judge's bench. 16 So he had them ejected from the court.
17 Then they all seized Sosthenes, the leader of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the judge's bench. But none of these things concerned Gallio. 17 Then they all turned on Sosthenes the synagogue ruler and beat him in front of the court. But Gallio showed no concern whatever.
