But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one accord rose up against Paul and brought him to the judgment seat,
Saying: This man persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.
And when Paul was beginning to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews: If it were some matter of injustice or an heinous deed, O Jews, I should with reason bear with you.
But if they be questions of word and names and of your law, look you to it. I will not be judge of such things.
And he drove them from the judgment seat.
And all laying hold on Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.
