RSVA 22 To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: NIV 22 But God has helped me to this very day; so I stand here and testify to small and great alike. I am saying nothing beyond what the prophets and Moses said would happen— RSVA 23 that the Christ must suffer, and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles." NIV 23 that the Messiah would suffer and, as the first to rise from the dead, would bring the message of light to his own people and to the Gentiles.” RSVA 24 And as he thus made his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, "Paul, you are mad; your great learning is turning you mad." NIV 24 At this point Festus interrupted Paul’s defense. “You are out of your mind, Paul!” he shouted. “Your great learning is driving you insane.” RSVA 25 But Paul said, "I am not mad, most excellent Festus, but I am speaking the sober truth. NIV 25 “I am not insane, most excellent Festus,” Paul replied. “What I am saying is true and reasonable. RSVA 26 For the king knows about these things, and to him I speak freely; for I am persuaded that none of these things has escaped his notice, for this was not done in a corner. NIV 26 The king is familiar with these things, and I can speak freely to him. I am convinced that none of this has escaped his notice, because it was not done in a corner.

I know you do.” RSVA 28 And Agrippa said to Paul, "In a short time you think to make me a Christian!" NIV 28 Then Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?” RSVA 29 And Paul said, "Whether short or long, I would to God that not only you but also all who hear me this day might become such as I am--except for these chains." NIV 29 Paul replied, “Short time or long—I pray to God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains.” RSVA 30 Then the king rose, and the governor and Berni'ce and those who were sitting with them; NIV 30 The king rose, and with him the governor and Bernice and those sitting with them. RSVA 31 and when they had withdrawn, they said to one another, "This man is doing nothing to deserve death or imprisonment."
