Acts 23:22  Acts 24:9

22 So the commander dismissed the young man, charging him, Do not tell anyone that you have informed me of these things.

23 And he called to him a certain two of the centurions and said, Prepare two hundred soldiers to go as far as Caesarea, as well as seventy horsemen and two hundred 1spearmen, by the 2third hour of the night;

24 And they were also to provide mounts to put Paul on and bring him safely to 1aFelix the bgovernor.

25 And he wrote a letter having this form:

26 Claudius Lysias, to his aExcellency, Governor Felix, brejoice.

27 This man, having been aseized by the Jews and about to be bdone away with by them, I came upon with my detachment of soldiers and rescued, when I learned that he was a cRoman.

28 And intending to aascertain the cause for which they were accusing him, I brought him down to their Sanhedrin,

29 And found him to be accused concerning aquestions of their blaw, but having nothing cworthy of death or of bonds laid to his charge.

30 And when it was adisclosed to me that there was a bplot against the man, I sent him at once to you, charging the caccusers also to speak the things against him before you.

31 So the soldiers, according to what they had been directed, took up Paul and brought him by night to 1Antipatris.

32 And on the next day, leaving the horsemen to depart with him, they returned to the abarracks.

33 And when they entered into aCaesarea and handed over the letter to the governor, they presented Paul also to him.

34 And when he had read it, he asked from what province he was; and learning that he was from aCilicia,

35 He said, I will hear your case fully when your aaccusers also arrive. And he ordered him to be guarded in Herod’s 1bpraetorium.


1 And after five days the high priest aAnanias came down with some elders and a certain 1orator, Tertullus; and they gave their information against Paul to the bgovernor.

2 And when Paul was called, Tertullus began to accuse him saying, 1Since we have obtained much peace through you, and since reforms are being carried out for this nation through your forethought

3 Both in every way and everywhere, we welcome it, most aexcellent bFelix, with all thankfulness.

4 But that I may not detain you further, I entreat you to hear us briefly in your forbearance.

5 For we have found this man a pest and an aagitator of binsurrections among all the Jews throughout the inhabited earth and a ringleader of the csect of the dNazarenes,

6 Who has also tried to aprofane the temple. Him also we laid hold of 1and wanted to judge according to our law,

7 But Lysias the commander came by and with much force took him away from our hands

8 And ordered his accusers to come to you. When you have examined this man yourself concerning all these things, you will be able to aascertain from him the things which we accuse him of.

9 And the Jews also joined in the attack, affirming that these things were so.
