NAS 14 There we found some brethren, and were invited to stay with them for seven days; and thus we came to Rome. NIV 14 There we found some brothers and sisters who invited us to spend a week with them. And so we came to Rome. NAS 15 And the brethren, when they heard about us, came from there as far as the Market of Appius and Three Inns to meet us; and when Paul saw them, he thanked God and took courage. NIV 15 The brothers and sisters there had heard that we were coming, and they traveled as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns to meet us. At the sight of these people Paul thanked God and was encouraged. NAS 16 When we entered Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier who was guarding him. NIV 16 When we got to Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with a soldier to guard him. NAS 17 After three days Paul called together those who were the leading men of the Jews, and when they came together, he began saying to them, "Brethren , though I had done nothing against our people or the customs of our fathers, yet I was delivered as a prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans. NIV 17 Three days later he called together the local Jewish leaders. When they had assembled, Paul said to them: “My brothers, although I have done nothing against our people or against the customs of our ancestors, I was arrested in Jerusalem and handed over to the Romans. NAS 18 "And when they had examined me, they were willing to release me because there was no ground for putting me to death. NIV 18 They examined me and wanted to release me, because I was not guilty of any crime deserving death. NAS 19 "But when the Jews objected, I was forced to appeal to Caesar, not that I had any accusation against my nation. NIV 19 The Jews objected, so I was compelled to make an appeal to Caesar. I certainly did not intend to bring any charge against my own people. NAS 20 "For this reason, therefore, I requested to see you and to speak with you, for I am wearing this chain for the sake of the hope of Israel." NIV 20 For this reason I have asked to see you and talk with you. It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain.” NAS 21 They said to him, "We have neither received letters from Judea concerning you, nor have any of the brethren come here and reported or spoken anything bad about you. NIV 21 They replied, “We have not received any letters from Judea concerning you, and none of our people who have come from there has reported or said anything bad about you. NAS 22 "But we desire to hear from you what your views are; for concerning this sect, it is known to us that it is spoken against everywhere." NIV 22 But we want to hear what your views are, for we know that people everywhere are talking against this sect.” NAS 23 When they had set a day for Paul, they came to him at his lodging in large numbers; and he was explaining to them by solemnly testifying about the kingdom of God and trying to persuade them concerning Jesus, from both the Law of Moses and from the Prophets, from morning until evening. NIV 23 They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. He witnessed to them from morning till evening, explaining about the kingdom of God, and from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets he tried to persuade them about Jesus. NAS 24 Some were being persuaded by the things spoken, but others would not believe. NIV 24 Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe. NAS 25 And when they did not agree with one another, they began leaving after Paul had spoken one parting word, "The Holy Spirit rightly spoke through Isaiah the prophet to your fathers, NIV 25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: “The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your ancestors when he said through Isaiah the prophet: NAS 26 saying, 'GO TO THIS PEOPLE AND SAY, "YOU WILL KEEP ON HEARING, BUT WILL NOT UNDERSTAND; AND YOU WILL KEEP ON SEEING, BUT WILL NOT PERCEIVE; NIV 26 “ ‘Go to this people and say, “You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.” NAS 27 FOR THE HEART OF THIS PEOPLE HAS BECOME DULL, AND WITH THEIR EARS THEY SCARCELY HEAR, AND THEY HAVE CLOSED THEIR EYES; OTHERWISE THEY MIGHT SEE WITH THEIR EYES, AND HEAR WITH THEIR EARS, AND UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART AND RETURN, AND I WOULD HEAL THEM."' NIV 27 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ NAS 28 "Therefore let it be known to you that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will also listen." NIV 28 “Therefore I want you to know that God’s salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!” NAS 29 [When he had spoken these words, the Jews departed, having a great dispute among themselves.] NAS 30 And he stayed two full years in his own rented quarters and was welcoming all who came to him, NIV 30 For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him.
