Acts 22

RHE 1 Men, brethren and fathers, hear ye the account which I now give unto you. NIV 1 “Brothers and fathers, listen now to my defense.” RHE 2 (And when they heard that he spoke to them in the Hebrew tongue, they kept the more silence.) NIV 2 When they heard him speak to them in Aramaic, they became very quiet. Then Paul said: RHE 3 And he saith: I am a Jew, born at Tarsus in Cilicia, but brought up in this city, at the feet of Gamaliel, taught according to the truth of the law of the fathers, zealous for the law, as also all you are this day: NIV 3 “I am a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city. I studied under Gamaliel and was thoroughly trained in the law of our ancestors. I was just as zealous for God as any of you are today. RHE 4 Who persecuted this way unto death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women, NIV 4 I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison, RHE 5 As the high priest doth bear me witness and all the ancients. From whom also receiving letters to the brethren, I went to Damascus, that I might bring them bound from thence to Jerusalem to be punished. NIV 5 as the high priest and all the Council can themselves testify. I even obtained letters from them to their associates in Damascus, and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished. RHE 6 And it came to pass, as I was going and drawing nigh to Damascus, at mid-day, that suddenly from heaven there shone round about me a great light: NIV 6 “About noon as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around me. RHE 7 And falling on the ground, I heard a voice saying to me: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? NIV 7 I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?’ RHE 8 And I answered: Who art thou, Lord? And he said to me: I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. NIV 8 “ ‘Who are you, Lord?’ I asked. “ ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied. RHE 9 And they that were with me saw indeed the light: but they heard not the voice of him that spoke with me. NIV 9 My companions saw the light, but they did not understand the voice of him who was speaking to me. RHE 10 And I said: What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said to me: Arise and go to Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things that thou must do. NIV 10 “ ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ I asked. “ ‘Get up,’ the Lord said, ‘and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.’ RHE 11 And whereas I did not see for the brightness of that light, being led by the hand by my companions, I came to Damascus, NIV 11 My companions led me by the hand into Damascus, because the brilliance of the light had blinded me. RHE 12 And one Ananias, a man according to the law, having testimony of all the Jews who dwelt there, NIV 12 “A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. RHE 13 Coming to me and standing by me, said to me: Brother Saul, look up. And I, the same hour, looked upon him. NIV 13 He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment I was able to see him. RHE 14 But he said: The God of our fathers hath preordained thee that thou shouldst know his will and see the Just One and shouldst hear the voice from his mouth. NIV 14 “Then he said: ‘The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth. RHE 15 For thou shalt be his witness to all men of those things which thou hast seen and heard. NIV 15 You will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard. RHE 16 And now why tarriest thou? Rise up and be baptized and wash away thy sins, invoking his name. NIV 16 And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.’ RHE 17 And it came to pass, when I was come again to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, that I was in a trance, NIV 17 “When I returned to Jerusalem and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance RHE 18 And saw him saying unto me: Make haste and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: because they will not receive thy testimony concerning me. NIV 18 and saw the Lord speaking to me. ‘Quick!’ he said. ‘Leave Jerusalem immediately, because the people here will not accept your testimony about me.’ RHE 19 And I said: Lord, they know that I cast into prison and beat in every synagogue them that believed in thee. NIV 19 “ ‘Lord,’ I replied, ‘these people know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison and beat those who believe in you. RHE 20 And when the blood of Stephen thy witness was shed, I stood by and consented: and kept the garments of them that killed him. NIV 20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’ RHE 21 And he said to me: Go, for unto the Gentiles afar off will I send thee. NIV 21 “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’ ” RHE 22 And they heard him until this word and then lifted up their voice, saying: Away with such an one from the earth. For it is not fit that he should live. NIV 22 The crowd listened to Paul until he said this. Then they raised their voices and shouted, “Rid the earth of him! He’s not fit to live!” RHE 23 And as they cried out and threw off their garments and cast dust into the air, NIV 23 As they were shouting and throwing off their cloaks and flinging dust into the air, RHE 24 The tribune commanded him to be brought into the castle, and that he should be scourged and tortured: to know for what cause they did so cry out against him. NIV 24 the commander ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks. He directed that he be flogged and interrogated in order to find out why the people were shouting at him like this. RHE 25 And when they had bound him with thongs, Paul saith to the centurion that stood by him: Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman 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?” RHE 26 Which the centurion hearing, went to the tribune and told him, saying: What art thou 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.” RHE 27 And the tribune coming, said to him: Tell me. Art thou a Roman? But he said: Yea. NIV 27 The commander went to Paul and asked, “Tell me, are you a Roman citizen?” “Yes, I am,” he answered. RHE 28 And the tribune answered: I obtained the being free of this city with a great sum. And Paul said: But I was born so. NIV 28 Then the commander said, “I had to pay a lot of money for my citizenship.” “But I was born a citizen,” Paul replied. RHE 29 Immediately therefore they departed from him that were about to torture him. The tribune also was afraid after he understood that he was a Roman citizen and because he had bound him. NIV 29 Those who were about to interrogate him withdrew immediately. The commander himself was alarmed when he realized that he had put Paul, a Roman citizen, in chains. RHE 30 But on the next day, meaning to know more diligently for what cause he was accused by the Jews, he loosed him and commanded the priests to come together and all the council: and, bringing forth Paul, he set him before them. NIV 30 The commander wanted to find out exactly why Paul was being accused by the Jews. So the next day he released him and ordered the chief priests and all the members of the Sanhedrin to assemble. Then he brought Paul and had him stand before them.
