And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered on the isle and whose sign was Castor and Pollux.
And landing at Syracuse, we tarried there three days.
And from thence we followed a circiutous course and came to Rhegium. And a day later the south wind blew, and we came the next day to Puteoli.
There we found brethren and were invited to tarry with them seven days; and so we went toward Rome.
And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as the Appii Forum and The Three Taverns. When Paul saw them, he thanked God and took courage.
And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard, but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier who kept him.
And it came to pass that after three days Paul called the chief Jews together; and when they had come together, he said unto them,"Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans,
who, when they had examined me, would have let me go because there was no cause deserving of death in me.
But when the Jews spoke against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar, not that I had anything to accuse my nation of.
For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you and to speak with you, because it is for the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain."
And they said unto him, "We neither received letters from Judea concerning thee, nor did any of the brethren who came show or speak any harm of thee.
