26:11Then spake the priests and the prophets unto the princes and to all the people, saying, This man is worthy to die; for he hath prophesied against this city, as ye have heard with your ears.
26:12Then spake Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard.
26:13Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you.
26:14As for me, behold, I am in your hand: do with me as seemeth good and meet unto you.
26:15But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears.
26:16Then said the princes and all the people unto the priests and to the prophets; This man is not worthy to die: for he hath spoken to us in the name of the LORD our God.
15:3And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
15:4And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.
15:5But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
4:8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
4:9If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
4:10Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
4:11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
4:12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
4:18And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
4:19But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.
4:20For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
5:29Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
5:30The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
5:31Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
5:32And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
7:1Then said the high priest, Are these things so?
7:2And he said, Men, brethren, and fathers, hearken; The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Charran,
7:3And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee.
7:4Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed him into this land, wherein ye now dwell.
7:5And he gave him none inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child.
7:6And God spake on this wise, That his seed should sojourn in a strange land; and that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.
7:7And the nation to whom they shall be in bondage will I judge, said God: and after that shall they come forth, and serve me in this place.
7:8And he gave him the covenant of circumcision: and so Abraham begat Isaac, and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat the twelve patriarchs.
7:9And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,
7:10And delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favour and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and he made him governor over Egypt and all his house.
7:11Now there came a dearth over all the land of Egypt and Chanaan, and great affliction: and our fathers found no sustenance.
7:12But when Jacob heard that there was corn in Egypt, he sent out our fathers first.
7:13And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.
7:14Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.
7:15So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers,
7:16And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.
7:17But when the time of the promise drew nigh, which God had sworn to Abraham, the people grew and multiplied in Egypt,
7:18Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph.
7:19The same dealt subtilly with our kindred, and evil entreated our fathers, so that they cast out their young children, to the end they might not live.
7:20In which time Moses was born, and was exceeding fair, and nourished up in his father's house three months:
7:21And when he was cast out, Pharaoh's daughter took him up, and nourished him for her own son.
7:22And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.
7:23And when he was full forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of Israel.
7:24And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed, and smote the Egyptian:
7:25For he supposed his brethren would have understood how that God by his hand would deliver them: but they understood not.
7:26And the next day he shewed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another?
7:27But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?
7:28Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the Egyptian yesterday?
7:29Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two sons.
7:30And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
7:31When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him,
7:32Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
7:33Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.
7:34I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.
7:35This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
7:36He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
7:37This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
7:38This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:
7:39To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,
7:40Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
7:41And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
7:42Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?
7:43Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
7:44Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.
7:45Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;
7:46Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
7:47But Solomon built him an house.
7:48Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
7:49Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
7:50Hath not my hand made all these things?
7:51Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.
7:52Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
7:53Who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.
7:54When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
7:55But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
7:56And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
23:1And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.
23:2And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.
23:3Then said Paul unto him, God shall smite thee, thou whited wall: for sittest thou to judge me after the law, and commandest me to be smitten contrary to the law?
23:4And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God's high priest?
23:5Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people.
23:6But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.
23:7And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.
26:1Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:
26:2I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:
26:3Especially because I know thee to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech thee to hear me patiently.
26:4My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
26:5Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
26:6And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
26:7Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
26:8Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
26:9I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
26:10Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.
26:11And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.
26:12Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,
26:13At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
26:14And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
26:15And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
26:16But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
26:17Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
26:18To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
26:19Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
26:20But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
26:21For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.
26:22Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
26:23That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.
26:24And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
26:25But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
26:26For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.
26:27King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
26:28Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
26:29And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.
26:30And when he had thus spoken, the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:
26:31And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death or of bonds.
26:32Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Caesar.
