Acts 18:12-17

CSB 12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a united attack against Paul and brought him to the judge's bench. NIV 12 While Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a united attack on Paul and brought him into court. CSB 13 "This man," they said, "persuades people to worship God contrary to the law!" NIV 13 "This man," they charged, "is persuading the people to worship God in ways contrary to the law." CSB 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. NIV 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. CSB 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." NIV 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." CSB 16 So he drove them from the judge's bench. NIV 16 So he had them ejected from the court. CSB 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. NIV 17 Then they all turned on Sosthenes the synagogue ruler and beat him in front of the court. But Gallio showed no concern whatever.
