THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Acts (Author Luke)

23:23And he called unto him two centurions, saying, Make ready two hundred soldiers to go to Caesarea, and horsemen threescore and ten, and spearmen two hundred, at the third hour of the night;

23:24And provide them beasts, that they may set Paul on, and bring him safe unto Felix the governor.

23:25And he wrote a letter after this manner:

23:26Claudius Lysias unto the most excellent governor Felix sendeth greeting.

23:27This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman.

23:28And when I would have known the cause wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council:

23:29Whom I perceived to be accused of questions of their law, but to have nothing laid to his charge worthy of death or of bonds.

23:30And when it was told me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent straightway to thee, and gave commandment to his accusers also to say before thee what they had against him. Farewell.

23:31Then the soldiers, as it was commanded them, took Paul, and brought him by night to Antipatris.

23:32On the morrow they left the horsemen to go with him, and returned to the castle:

23:33Who, when they came to Caesarea, and delivered the epistle to the governor, presented Paul also before him.

23:34And when the governor had read the letter, he asked of what province he was. And when he understood that he was of Cilicia;

23:35I will hear thee, said he, when thine accusers are also come. And he commanded him to be kept in Herod's judgment hall.
