GNT 16 But the son of Paul's sister heard about the plot; so he went to the fort and told Paul. NIV 16 But when the son of Paul’s sister heard of this plot, he went into the barracks and told Paul. GNT 17 Then Paul called one of the officers and said to him, "Take this young man to the commander; he has something to tell him." NIV 17 Then Paul called one of the centurions and said, “Take this young man to the commander; he has something to tell him.” GNT 18 The officer took him, led him to the commander, and said, "The prisoner Paul called me and asked me to bring this young man to you, because he has something to say to you." NIV 18 So he took him to the commander. The centurion said, “Paul, the prisoner, sent for me and asked me to bring this young man to you because he has something to tell you.” GNT 19 The commander took him by the hand, led him off by himself, and asked him, "What do you have to tell me? NIV 19 The commander took the young man by the hand, drew him aside and asked, “What is it you want to tell me?” GNT 20 He said, "The Jewish authorities have agreed to ask you tomorrow to take Paul down to the Council, pretending that the Council wants to get more accurate information about him. NIV 20 He said: “Some Jews have agreed to ask you to bring Paul before the Sanhedrin tomorrow on the pretext of wanting more accurate information about him. GNT 21 But don't listen to them, because there are more than forty men who will be hiding and waiting for him. They have taken a vow not to eat or drink until they have killed him. They are now ready to do it and are waiting for your decision. NIV 21 Don’t give in to them, because more than forty of them are waiting in ambush for him. They have taken an oath not to eat or drink until they have killed him. They are ready now, waiting for your consent to their request.” GNT 22 The commander said, "Don't tell anyone that you have reported this to me." And he sent the young man away. NIV 22 The commander dismissed the young man with this warning: “Don’t tell anyone that you have reported this to me.” GNT 23 Then the commander called two of his officers and said, "Get two hundred soldiers ready to go to Caesarea, together with seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen, and be ready to leave by nine o'clock tonight. NIV 23 Then he called two of his centurions and ordered them, “Get ready a detachment of two hundred soldiers, seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen to go to Caesarea at nine tonight. GNT 24 Provide some horses for Paul to ride and get him safely through to Governor Felix." NIV 24 Provide horses for Paul so that he may be taken safely to Governor Felix.” GNT 25 Then the commander wrote a letter that went like this: NIV 25 He wrote a letter as follows: GNT 26 "Claudius Lysias to His Excellency, Governor Felix: Greetings. NIV 26 Claudius Lysias, To His Excellency, Governor Felix: Greetings. GNT 27 The Jews seized this man and were about to kill him. I learned that he is a Roman citizen, so I went with my soldiers and rescued him. NIV 27 This man was seized by the Jews and they were about to kill him, but I came with my troops and rescued him, for I had learned that he is a Roman citizen. GNT 28 I wanted to know what they were accusing him of, so I took him down to their Council. NIV 28 I wanted to know why they were accusing him, so I brought him to their Sanhedrin. GNT 29 I found out that he had not done a thing for which he deserved to die or be put in prison; the accusation against him had to do with questions about their own law. NIV 29 I found that the accusation had to do with questions about their law, but there was no charge against him that deserved death or imprisonment. GNT 30 And when I was informed that there was a plot against him, at once I decided to send him to you. I have told his accusers to make their charges against him before you." NIV 30 When I was informed of a plot to be carried out against the man, I sent him to you at once. I also ordered his accusers to present to you their case against him. GNT 31 The soldiers carried out their orders. They got Paul and took him that night as far as Antipatris. NIV 31 So the soldiers, carrying out their orders, took Paul with them during the night and brought him as far as Antipatris. GNT 32 The next day the foot soldiers returned to the fort and left the horsemen to go on with him. NIV 32 The next day they let the cavalry go on with him, while they returned to the barracks. GNT 33 They took him to Caesarea, delivered the letter to the governor, and turned Paul over to him. NIV 33 When the cavalry arrived in Caesarea, they delivered the letter to the governor and handed Paul over to him. GNT 34 The governor read the letter and asked Paul what province he was from. When he found out that he was from Cilicia, NIV 34 The governor read the letter and asked what province he was from. Learning that he was from Cilicia, GNT 35 he said, "I will hear you when your accusers arrive." Then he gave orders for Paul to be kept under guard in the governor's headquarters. NIV 35 he said, “I will hear your case when your accusers get here.” Then he ordered that Paul be kept under guard in Herod’s palace.
