Acts 25:15-25

NKJV 15 about whom the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed me, when I was in Jerusalem, asking for a judgment against him. NIV 15 When I went to Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews brought charges against him and asked that he be condemned. NKJV 16 To them I answered, 'It is not the custom of the Romans to deliver any man to destruction before the accused meets the accusers face to face, and has opportunity to answer for himself concerning the charge against him.' NIV 16 “I told them that it is not the Roman custom to hand over anyone before they have faced their accusers and have had an opportunity to defend themselves against the charges. NKJV 17 Therefore when they had come together, without any delay, the next day I sat on the judgment seat and commanded the man to be brought in. NIV 17 When they came here with me, I did not delay the case, but convened the court the next day and ordered the man to be brought in. NKJV 18 When the accusers stood up, they brought no accusation against him of such things as I supposed, NIV 18 When his accusers got up to speak, they did not charge him with any of the crimes I had expected. NKJV 19 but had some questions against him about their own religion and about a certain Jesus, who had died, whom Paul affirmed to be alive. NIV 19 Instead, they had some points of dispute with him about their own religion and about a dead man named Jesus who Paul claimed was alive. NKJV 20 And because I was uncertain of such questions, I asked whether he was willing to go to Jerusalem and there be judged concerning these matters. NIV 20 I was at a loss how to investigate such matters; so I asked if he would be willing to go to Jerusalem and stand trial there on these charges. NKJV 21 But when Paul appealed to be reserved for the decision of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept till I could send him to Caesar." NIV 21 But when Paul made his appeal to be held over for the Emperor’s decision, I ordered him held until I could send him to Caesar.” NKJV 22 Then Agrippa said to Festus, "I also would like to hear the man myself." "Tomorrow," he said, "you shall hear him." NIV 22 Then Agrippa said to Festus, “I would like to hear this man myself.” He replied, “Tomorrow you will hear him.” NKJV 23 So the next day, when Agrippa and Bernice had come with great pomp, and had entered the auditorium with the commanders and the prominent men of the city, at Festus' command Paul was brought in. NIV 23 The next day Agrippa and Bernice came with great pomp and entered the audience room with the high-ranking military officers and the prominent men of the city. At the command of Festus, Paul was brought in. NKJV 24 And Festus said: "King Agrippa and all the men who are here present with us, you see this man about whom the whole assembly of the Jews petitioned me, both at Jerusalem and here, crying out that he was not fit to live any longer. NIV 24 Festus said: “King Agrippa, and all who are present with us, you see this man! The whole Jewish community has petitioned me about him in Jerusalem and here in Caesarea, shouting that he ought not to live any longer. NKJV 25 But when I found that he had committed nothing deserving of death, and that he himself had appealed to Augustus, I decided to send him. NIV 25 I found he had done nothing deserving of death, but because he made his appeal to the Emperor I decided to send him to Rome.
