Acts 21

RHE 1 And when it came to pass that, being parted from them, we set sail, we came with a straight course to Coos, and the day following to Rhodes: and from thence to Patara. NIV 1 After we had torn ourselves away from them, we put out to sea and sailed straight to Kos. The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara. RHE 2 And when we had found a ship sailing over to Phenice, we went aboard and set forth. NIV 2 We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, went on board and set sail. RHE 3 And when we had discovered Cyprus, leaving it on the left hand, we sailed into Syria, and came to Tyre: for there the ship was to unlade her burden. NIV 3 After sighting Cyprus and passing to the south of it, we sailed on to Syria. We landed at Tyre, where our ship was to unload its cargo. RHE 4 And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul, through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem. NIV 4 We sought out the disciples there and stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem. RHE 5 And the days being expired, departing we went forward, they all bringing us on our way, with their wives and children, till we were out of the city. And we kneeled down on the shore: and we prayed. NIV 5 When it was time to leave, we left and continued on our way. All of them, including wives and children, accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray. RHE 6 And when we had bid one another farewell, we took ship. And they returned home. NIV 6 After saying goodbye to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home. RHE 7 But we, having finished the voyage by sea, from Tyre came down to Ptolemais: and saluting the brethren, we abode one day with them. NIV 7 We continued our voyage from Tyre and landed at Ptolemais, where we greeted the brothers and sisters and stayed with them for a day. RHE 8 And the next day departing, we came to Caesarea. And entering into the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, we abode with him. NIV 8 Leaving the next day, we reached Caesarea and stayed at the house of Philip the evangelist, one of the Seven. RHE 9 And he had four daughters, virgins, who did prophesy. NIV 9 He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied. RHE 10 And as we tarried there for some days, there came from Judea a certain prophet, named Agabus. NIV 10 After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. RHE 11 Who, when he was come to us, took Paul’s girdle: and binding his own feet and hands, he said: Thus saith the Holy Ghost: The man whose girdle this is, the Jews shall bind in this manner in Jerusalem and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles. NIV 11 Coming over to us, he took Paul’s belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, “The Holy Spirit says, ‘In this way the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.’ ” RHE 12 Which when we had heard, both we and they that were of that place desired him that he would not go up to Jerusalem. NIV 12 When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. RHE 13 Then Paul answered and said: What do you mean, weeping and afflicting my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but to die also in Jerusalem, for the name of the Lord Jesus. NIV 13 Then Paul answered, “Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” RHE 14 And when we could not persuade him, we ceased, saying: The will of the Lord be done. NIV 14 When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up and said, “The Lord’s will be done.” RHE 15 And after those days, being prepared, we went up to Jerusalem. NIV 15 After this, we started on our way up to Jerusalem. RHE 16 And there went also with us some of the disciples from Caesarea, bringing with them one Mnason a Cyprian, an old disciple, with whom we should lodge. NIV 16 Some of the disciples from Caesarea accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus and one of the early disciples. RHE 17 And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly. NIV 17 When we arrived at Jerusalem, the brothers and sisters received us warmly. RHE 18 And the day following, Paul went in with us unto James: and all the ancients were assembled. NIV 18 The next day Paul and the rest of us went to see James, and all the elders were present. RHE 19 Whom when he had saluted, he related particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry. NIV 19 Paul greeted them and reported in detail what God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry. RHE 20 But they hearing it, glorified God and said to him: Thou seest, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews that have believed: and they are all zealous for the law. NIV 20 When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: “You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous for the law. RHE 21 Now they have heard of thee that thou teachest those Jews, who are among the Gentiles to depart from Moses: saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, nor walk according to the custom. NIV 21 They have been informed that you teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn away from Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs. RHE 22 What is it therefore? The multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come. NIV 22 What shall we do? They will certainly hear that you have come, RHE 23 Do therefore this that we say to thee. We have four men, who have a vow on them. NIV 23 so do what we tell you. There are four men with us who have made a vow. RHE 24 Take these and sanctify thyself with them: and bestow on them, that they may shave their heads. And all will know that the things which they have heard of these are false: but that thou thyself also walkest keeping the law. NIV 24 Take these men, join in their purification rites and pay their expenses, so that they can have their heads shaved. Then everyone will know there is no truth in these reports about you, but that you yourself are living in obedience to the law. RHE 25 But, as touching the Gentiles that believe, we have written, decreeing that they should only refrain themselves from that which has been offered to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication. NIV 25 As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality.” RHE 26 Then Paul took the men and, the next day being purified with them, entered into the temple, giving notice of the accomplishment of the days of purification, until an oblation should be offered for every one of them. NIV 26 The next day Paul took the men and purified himself along with them. Then he went to the temple to give notice of the date when the days of purification would end and the offering would be made for each of them. RHE 27 But when the seven days were drawing to an end, those Jews that were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people and laid hands upon him, crying out: NIV 27 When the seven days were nearly over, some Jews from the province of Asia saw Paul at the temple. They stirred up the whole crowd and seized him, RHE 28 Men of Israel, help: This is the man that teacheth all men every where against the people and the law and this place; and moreover hath brought in Gentiles into the temple and hath violated this holy place. NIV 28 shouting, “Fellow Israelites, help us! This is the man who teaches everyone everywhere against our people and our law and this place. And besides, he has brought Greeks into the temple and defiled this holy place.” RHE 29 (For they had seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with him. whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.) NIV 29 (They had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with Paul and assumed that Paul had brought him into the temple.) RHE 30 And he whole city was in an uproar: and the people ran together. And taking Paul, they drew him out of the temple: and immediately the doors were shut. NIV 30 The whole city was aroused, and the people came running from all directions. Seizing Paul, they dragged him from the temple, and immediately the gates were shut. RHE 31 And as they went about to kill him, it was told the tribune of the band that all Jerusalem was in confusion. NIV 31 While they were trying to kill him, news reached the commander of the Roman troops that the whole city of Jerusalem was in an uproar. RHE 32 Who, forthwith taking with him soldiers and centurions, ran down to them. And when they saw the tribune and the soldiers, they left off beating Paul. NIV 32 He at once took some officers and soldiers and ran down to the crowd. When the rioters saw the commander and his soldiers, they stopped beating Paul. RHE 33 Then the tribune, coming near, took him and commanded him to be bound with two chains: and demanded who he was and what he had done. NIV 33 The commander came up and arrested him and ordered him to be bound with two chains. Then he asked who he was and what he had done. RHE 34 And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude. And when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle. NIV 34 Some in the crowd shouted one thing and some another, and since the commander could not get at the truth because of the uproar, he ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks. RHE 35 And when he was come to the stairs, it fell out that he was carried by the soldiers, because of the violence of the people. NIV 35 When Paul reached the steps, the violence of the mob was so great he had to be carried by the soldiers. RHE 36 For the multitude of the people followed after, crying: Away with him! NIV 36 The crowd that followed kept shouting, “Get rid of him!” RHE 37 And as Paul was about to be brought into the castle, he saith to the tribune: May I speak something to thee? Who said: Canst thou speak Greek? NIV 37 As the soldiers were about to take Paul into the barracks, he asked the commander, “May I say something to you?” “Do you speak Greek?” he replied. RHE 38 Art not thou that Egyptian who before these days didst raise a tumult and didst lead forth into the desert four thousand men that were murderers? NIV 38 “Aren’t you the Egyptian who started a revolt and led four thousand terrorists out into the wilderness some time ago?” RHE 39 But Paul said to him: I am a Jew of Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city. And I beseech thee, suffer me to speak to the people. NIV 39 Paul answered, “I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no ordinary city. Please let me speak to the people.” RHE 40 And when he had given him leave, Paul standing on the stairs, beckoned with his hand to the people. And a great silence being made, he spoke unto them in the Hebrew tongue, saying: NIV 40 After receiving the commander’s permission, Paul stood on the steps and motioned to the crowd. When they were all silent, he said to them in Aramaic :
