Acts 22:24-30

RSV 24 the tribune commanded him to be brought into the barracks, and ordered him to be examined by scourging, to find out why they shouted thus against him. NIV 24 the commander ordered Paul to be taken into the barracks. He directed that he be flogged and questioned in order to find out why the people were shouting at him like this. RSV 25 But when they had tied him up with the thongs, Paul said to the centurion who was standing by, "Is it lawful for you to scourge a man who is a Roman citizen, and uncondemned?" NIV 25 As they stretched him out to flog him, Paul said to the centurion standing there, "Is it legal for you to flog a Roman citizen who hasn't even been found guilty?" RSV 26 When the centurion heard that, he went to the tribune and said to him, "What are you about to do? For this man is a Roman citizen." NIV 26 When the centurion heard this, he went to the commander and reported it. "What are you going to do?" he asked. "This man is a Roman citizen." RSV 27 So the tribune came and said to him, "Tell me, are you a Roman citizen?" And he said, "Yes." NIV 27 The commander went to Paul and asked, "Tell me, are you a Roman citizen?" "Yes, I am," he answered. RSV 28 The tribune answered, "I bought this citizenship for a large sum." Paul said, "But I was born a citizen." NIV 28 Then the commander said, "I had to pay a big price for my citizenship." "But I was born a citizen," Paul replied. RSV 29 So those who were about to examine him withdrew from him instantly; and the tribune also was afraid, for he realized that Paul was a Roman citizen and that he had bound him. NIV 29 Those who were about to question him withdrew immediately. The commander himself was alarmed when he realized that he had put Paul, a Roman citizen, in chains. RSV 30 But on the morrow, desiring to know the real reason why the Jews accused him, he unbound him, and commanded the chief priests and all the council to meet, and he brought Paul down and set him before them. NIV 30 The next day, since the commander wanted to find out exactly why Paul was being accused by the Jews, he released him and ordered the chief priests and all the Sanhedrin to assemble. Then he brought Paul and had him stand before them.
