Acts 25 Text (WEB)
  1. Festus therefore, having come into the province, after three days went up to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
  2. Then the high priest and the principal men of the Jews informed him against Paul, and they begged him,
  3. asking a favor against him, that he would summon him to Jerusalem; plotting to kill him on the way.
  4. However Festus answered that Paul should be kept in custody at Caesarea, and that he himself was about to depart shortly.
  5. "Let them therefore," said he, "that are in power among you go down with me, and if there is anything wrong in the man, let them accuse him."
  6. When he had stayed among them more than ten days, he went down to Caesarea, and on the next day he sat on the judgment seat, and commanded Paul to be brought.
  7. When he had come, the Jews who had come down from Jerusalem stood around him, bringing against him many and grievous charges which they could not prove,
  8. while he said in his defense, "Neither against the law of the Jews, nor against the temple, nor against Caesar, have I sinned at all."
  9. But Festus, desiring to gain favor with the Jews, answered Paul and said, "Are you willing to go up to Jerusalem, and be judged by me there concerning these things?"
  10. But Paul said, "I am standing before Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be tried. I have done no wrong to the Jews, as you also know very well.
  11. For if I have done wrong, and have committed anything worthy of death, I don't refuse to die; but if none of those things is true that they accuse me of, no one can give me up to them. I appeal to Caesar!"
  12. Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, "You have appealed to Caesar. To Caesar you shall go."
  13. Now when some days had passed, King Agrippa and Bernice arrived at Caesarea, and greeted Festus.
  14. As he stayed there many days, Festus laid Paul's case before the king, saying, "There is a certain man left a prisoner by Felix;
  15. about whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed me, asking for a sentence against him.
  16. To whom I answered that it is not the custom of the Romans to give up any man to destruction, before the accused has met the accusers face to face, and has had opportunity to make his defense concerning the matter laid against him.
  17. When therefore they had come together here, I didn't delay, but on the next day sat on the judgment seat, and commanded the man to be brought.
  18. Concerning whom, when the accusers stood up, they brought no charge of such things as I supposed;
  19. but had certain questions against him about their own religion, and about one Jesus, who was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.
  20. Being perplexed how to inquire concerning these things, I asked whether he was willing to go to Jerusalem and there be judged concerning these matters.
  21. But when Paul had appealed to be kept for the decision of the emperor, I commanded him to be kept until I could send him to Caesar."
  22. Agrippa said to Festus, "I also would like to hear the man myself." "Tomorrow," he said, "you shall hear him."
  23. So on the next day, when Agrippa and Bernice had come with great pomp, and they had entered into the place of hearing with the commanding officers and principal men of the city, at the command of Festus, Paul was brought in.
  24. Festus said, "King Agrippa, and all men who are here present with us, you see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews petitioned me, both at Jerusalem and here, crying that he ought not to live any longer.
  25. But when I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death, and as he himself appealed to the emperor I determined to send him.
  26. Of whom I have no certain thing to write to my lord. Therefore I have brought him forth before you, and especially before you, King Agrippa, that, after examination, I may have something to write.
  27. For it seems to me unreasonable, in sending a prisoner, not to also specify the charges against him."
Acts 25 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויבא פסטוס אל המדינה ויעל אחרי שלשת ימים מקסרין לירושלים׃
  2. והכהן הגדול וראשי היהודים הודיעהו את ריבם עם פולוס׃
  3. ויפצרו בו וישאלו ממנו לעשות חסד עמהם להביאו ירושלים והמה מתנכלים אתו להמיתו בדרך׃
  4. ויען אותם פסטוס כי עצור פולוס בקסרין וכי גם הוא ישוב שמה בקרוב׃
  5. ויאמר לכן ירדו אתי העצומים שבכם ואם יש מאום באיש הזה יענו בו׃
  6. וישב בתוכם יותר מימים עשרה וירד אל קסרין וממחרת ישב על כסא המשפט ויצו להביא את פולוס׃
  7. הוא בא והיהודים אשר ירדו מירושלים סבבהו ויאשימו את פולוס באשמות רבות וקשות אשר לא יכלו להוכיח׃
  8. והוא הצטדק לאמר לא חטאתי במאומה לא לדת היהודים ולא למקדש ולא לקיסר׃
  9. ופסטוס חפץ להתרצות אל היהודים ויען את פולוס ויאמר התחפץ לעלות ירושלים להשפט על אלה לפני שמה׃
  10. ויאמר פולוס לפני כסא משפט הקיסר אני עמד ושם נכון לי להשפט לא הרעתי ליהודים כאשר ידעת היטב גם אתה׃
  11. אם הרעתי ויש בי דבר משפט מות בל אחשך נפשי ממות ואם אין בי מאומה מכל אשר הם ענים בי איש לא יוכל להסגירני אל ידם את הקיסר אני קורא לדיני׃
  12. ויועץ פסטוס עם יועציו ויען אתו לאמר את הקיסר קראת אל הקיסר תלך׃
  13. ויהי אחרי ימים וירדו המלך אגרפס וברניקה אל קסרין לשאל לשלום פסטוס׃
  14. ויהי כי ארכו להם הימים שם ויספר פסטוס למלך את ריב פולוס לאמר יש פה איש אשר פיליכס הניחו אסור׃
  15. ובהיותי בירושלים דברו אלי ראשי הכהנים וזקני היהודים על אדותיו ויבקשו ממני לחרץ משפטו׃
  16. ואען אותם כי אין מנהג הרומיים למגן איש לאבד בטרם יעמד הנשטן לנכח שטניו ונתן לו מקום להצטדק מן השטנה׃
  17. ולכן כאשר באו הנה יחד חשתי ולא התמהמהתי כי ממחרת היום ישבתי על כסא המשפט ואצוה להביא את האיש׃
  18. ויעמדו עליו שטניו ולא הביאו עליו דבר רע מאשר הייתי חשד אתו׃
  19. רק היו להם דברי ריבת לנגדו על עבודת אלהיהם ועל מת אחד ישוע שמו אשר אמר עליו פולוס כי הוא חי׃
  20. ותכבד בעיני השאלה הזאת ואמר החפץ אתה ללכת ירושלים ולהשפט שם על אלה׃
  21. אבל פולוס שאל להניחו במשמר עד צאת משפטו מלפני אגוסטוס ואצוה לשמרו עד אשר אשלח אתו אל הקיסר׃
  22. ויאמר אגרפס אל פסטוס גם אני חפץ לשמע את האיש ויאמר מחר תשמענו׃
  23. ויהי ממחרת כבוא אגרפס וברניקה בהוד גדול ויבאו אל אלם המשמעת המה ושרי האלף ונגידי העיר ויצו פסטוס ויביאו את פולוס׃
  24. ויאמר פסטוס אגרפס המלך וכל האישים אשר אתם פה אתנו הנכם ראים את האיש אשר בעבורו פגעו בי כל המון היהודים גם בירושלים וגם פה ויצעקו כי אינו בדין שיחיה עוד׃
  25. ואני כאשר הכרתי כי לא עשה דבר לחיבו מיתה והוא גם הוא קרא את אגוסטוס לדינו יעצתי לשלח אתו שמה׃
  26. אך אין לי לכתב עליו דבר נכון לאדנינו ובעבור זאת הביאתיו לפניכם וביותר לפניך המלך אגרפס למען יחקר וידעתי מה אכתב׃
  27. כי לא יתכן בעיני לשלוח אסיר מבלי הודיע גם את עלילת הדברים אשר שמו לו׃
Acts 25 Text (Greek)
  1. φηστος ουν επιβας τη επαρχεια μετα τρεις ημερας ανεβη εις ιεροσολυμα απο καισαρειας
  2. ενεφανισαν τε αυτω οι αρχιερεις και οι πρωτοι των ιουδαιων κατα του παυλου και παρεκαλουν αυτον
  3. αιτουμενοι χαριν κατ αυτου οπως μεταπεμψηται αυτον εις ιερουσαλημ ενεδραν ποιουντες ανελειν αυτον κατα την οδον
  4. ο μεν ουν φηστος απεκριθη τηρεισθαι τον παυλον εις καισαρειαν εαυτον δε μελλειν εν ταχει εκπορευεσθαι
  5. οι ουν εν υμιν φησιν δυνατοι συγκαταβαντες ει τι εστιν εν τω ανδρι ατοπον κατηγορειτωσαν αυτου
  6. διατριψας δε εν αυτοις ημερας ου πλειους οκτω η δεκα καταβας εις καισαρειαν τη επαυριον καθισας επι του βηματος εκελευσεν τον παυλον αχθηναι
  7. παραγενομενου δε αυτου περιεστησαν αυτον οι απο ιεροσολυμων καταβεβηκοτες ιουδαιοι πολλα και βαρεα αιτιωματα καταφεροντες α ουκ ισχυον αποδειξαι
  8. του παυλου απολογουμενου οτι ουτε εις τον νομον των ιουδαιων ουτε εις το ιερον ουτε εις καισαρα τι ημαρτον
  9. ο φηστος δε θελων τοις ιουδαιοις χαριν καταθεσθαι αποκριθεις τω παυλω ειπεν θελεις εις ιεροσολυμα αναβας εκει περι τουτων κριθηναι επ εμου
  10. ειπεν δε ο παυλος ειμι ου με δει κρινεσθαι ιουδαιους ουδεν ως και συ καλλιον επιγινωσκεις
  11. ει μεν ουν αδικω και αξιον θανατου πεπραχα τι ου παραιτουμαι το αποθανειν ει δε ουδεν εστιν ων ουτοι κατηγορουσιν μου ουδεις με δυναται αυτοις χαρισασθαι καισαρα επικαλουμαι
  12. τοτε ο φηστος συλλαλησας μετα του συμβουλιου απεκριθη καισαρα επικεκλησαι επι καισαρα πορευση
  13. ημερων δε διαγενομενων τινων αγριππας ο βασιλευς και βερνικη κατηντησαν εις καισαρειαν ασπασαμενοι τον φηστον
  14. ως δε πλειους ημερας διετριβον εκει ο φηστος τω βασιλει ανεθετο τα κατα τον παυλον λεγων ανηρ τις εστιν καταλελειμμενος υπο φηλικος δεσμιος
  15. περι ου γενομενου μου εις ιεροσολυμα ενεφανισαν οι αρχιερεις και οι πρεσβυτεροι των ιουδαιων αιτουμενοι κατ αυτου καταδικην
  16. προς ους απεκριθην οτι ουκ εστιν εθος ρωμαιοις χαριζεσθαι τινα ανθρωπον πριν η ο κατηγορουμενος κατα προσωπον εχοι τους κατηγορους τοπον τε απολογιας λαβοι περι του εγκληματος
  17. συνελθοντων ουν ενθαδε αναβολην μηδεμιαν ποιησαμενος τη εξης καθισας επι του βηματος εκελευσα αχθηναι τον ανδρα
  18. περι ου σταθεντες οι κατηγοροι ουδεμιαν αιτιαν εφερον ων εγω υπενοουν πονηρων
  19. ζητηματα δε τινα περι της ιδιας δεισιδαιμονιας ειχον προς αυτον και περι τινος ιησου τεθνηκοτος ον εφασκεν ο παυλος ζην
  20. απορουμενος δε εγω την περι τουτων ζητησιν ελεγον ει βουλοιτο πορευεσθαι εις ιεροσολυμα κακει κρινεσθαι περι τουτων
  21. του δε παυλου επικαλεσαμενου τηρηθηναι αυτον εις την του σεβαστου διαγνωσιν εκελευσα τηρεισθαι αυτον εως ου αναπεμψω αυτον προς καισαρα
  22. αγριππας δε προς τον φηστον εβουλομην και αυτος του ανθρωπου ακουσαι αυριον φησιν ακουση αυτου
  23. τη ουν επαυριον ελθοντος του αγριππα και της βερνικης μετα πολλης φαντασιας και εισελθοντων εις το ακροατηριον συν τε χιλιαρχοις και ανδρασιν τοις κατ εξοχην της πολεως και κελευσαντος του φηστου ηχθη ο παυλος
  24. και φησιν ο φηστος αγριππα βασιλευ και παντες οι συμπαροντες ημιν ανδρες θεωρειτε τουτον περι ου απαν το πληθος των ιουδαιων μοι εν τε ιεροσολυμοις και ενθαδε βοωντες μη δειν αυτον ζην μηκετι
  25. εγω δε κατελαβομην μηδεν αξιον αυτον θανατου πεπραχεναι αυτου δε τουτου επικαλεσαμενου τον σεβαστον εκρινα πεμπειν
  26. περι ου ασφαλες τι γραψαι τω κυριω ουκ εχω διο προηγαγον αυτον εφ υμων και μαλιστα επι σου βασιλευ αγριππα οπως της ανακρισεως γενομενης σχω τι γραψω
  27. αλογον γαρ μοι δοκει πεμποντα δεσμιον μη και τας κατ αυτου αιτιας σημαναι
Acts 25 Text (Latin)
  1. Festus ergo cum venisset in provinciam, post triduum ascendit Jerosolymam a Cæsarea.
  2. Adieruntque eum principes sacerdotum, et primi Judæorum adversus Paulum : et rogabant eum,
  3. postulantes gratiam adversus eum, ut juberet perduci eum in Jerusalem, insidias tendentes ut interficerent eum in via.
  4. Festus autem respondit servari Paulum in Cæsarea : se autem maturius profecturum.
  5. Qui ergo in vobis, ait, potentes sunt, descendentes simul, si quod est in viro crimen, accusent eum.
  6. Demoratus autem inter eos dies non amplius quam octo, aut decem, descendit Cæsaream, et altera die sedit pro tribunali, et jussit Paulum adduci.
  7. Qui cum perductus esset, circumsteterunt eum, qui ab Jerosolyma descenderant Judæi, multas et graves causas objicientes, quas non poterant probare.
  8. Paulo rationem reddente : Quoniam neque in legem Judæorum, neque in templum, neque in Cæsarem quidquam peccavi.
  9. Festus autem volens gratiam præstare Judæis, respondens Paulo, dixit : Vis Jerosolymam ascendere, et ibi de his judicari apud me ?
  10. Dixit autem Paulus : Ad tribunal Cæsaris sto, ibi me oportet judicari : Judæis non nocui, sicut tu melius nosti.
  11. Si enim nocui, aut dignum morte aliquid feci, non recuso mori : si vero nihil est eorum quæ hi accusant me, nemo potest me illis donare. Cæsarem appello.
  12. Tunc Festus cum concilio locutus, respondit : Cæsarem appellasti ? ad Cæsarem ibis.
  13. Et cum dies aliquot transacti essent, Agrippa rex et Bernice descenderunt Cæsaream ad salutandum Festum.
  14. Et cum dies plures ibi demorarentur, Festus regi indicavit de Paulo, dicens : Vir quidam est derelictus a Felice vinctus,
  15. de quo cum essem Jerosolymis, adierunt me principes sacerdotum, et seniores Judæorum, postulantes adversus illum damnationem.
  16. Ad quos respondi : Quia non est Romanis consuetudo damnare aliquem hominem prius quam is qui accusatur præsentes habeat accusatores, locumque defendendi accipiat ad abluenda crimina.
  17. Cum ergo huc convenissent sine ulla dilatione, sequenti die sedens pro tribunali, jussi adduci virum.
  18. De quo, cum stetissent accusatores, nullam causam deferebant, de quibus ego suspicabar malum.
  19. Quæstiones vero quasdam de sua superstitione habebant adversus eum, et de quodam Jesu defuncto, quem affirmabat Paulus vivere.
  20. Hæsitans autem ego de hujusmodi quæstione, dicebam si vellet ire Jerosolymam, et ibi judicari de istis.
  21. Paulo autem appellante ut servaretur ad Augusti cognitionem, jussi servari eum, donec mittam eum ad Cæsarem.
  22. Agrippa autem dixit ad Festum : Volebam et ipse hominem audire. Cras, inquit, audies eum.
  23. Altera autem die cum venisset Agrippa, et Bernice cum multa ambitione, et introissent in auditorium cum tribunis, et viris principalibus civitatis, jubente Festo, adductus est Paulus.
  24. Et dicit Festus : Agrippa rex, et omnes qui simul adestis nobiscum viri, videtis hunc de quo omnis multitudo Judæorum interpellavit me Jerosolymis, petentes et acclamantes non oportere eum vivere amplius.
  25. Ego vere comperi nihil dignum morte eum admisisse. Ipso autem hoc appellante ad Augustum, judicavi mittere.
  26. De quo quid certum scribam domino, non habeo. Propter quod produxi eum ad vos, et maxime ad te, rex Agrippa, ut interrogatione facta habeam quid scribam.
  27. Sine ratione enim mihi videtur mittere vinctum, et causas ejus non significare.
Acts 25 Text (KJV)
  1. Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days he ascended from Caesarea to Jerusalem.
  2. Then the high priest and the chief of the Jews informed him against Paul, and besought him,
  3. And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.
  4. But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Caesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly thither.
  5. Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, go down with me, and accuse this man, if there be any wickedness in him.
  6. And when he had tarried among them more than ten days, he went down unto Caesarea; and the next day sitting on the judgment seat commanded Paul to be brought.
  7. And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove.
  8. While he answered for himself, Neither against the law of the Jews, neither against the temple, nor yet against Caesar, have I offended any thing at all.
  9. But Festus, willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
  10. Then said Paul, I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews have I done no wrong, as thou very well knowest.
  11. For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.
  12. Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Hast thou appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt thou go.
  13. And after certain days king Agrippa and Bernice came unto Caesarea to salute Festus.
  14. And when they had been there many days, Festus declared Paul's cause unto the king, saying, There is a certain man left in bonds by Felix:
  15. About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed me, desiring to have judgment against him.
  16. To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him.
  17. Therefore, when they were come hither, without any delay on the morrow I sat on the judgment seat, and commanded the man to be brought forth.
  18. Against whom when the accusers stood up, they brought none accusation of such things as I supposed:
  19. But had certain questions against him of their own superstition, and of one Jesus, which was dead, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.
  20. And because I doubted of such manner of questions, I asked him whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these matters.
  21. But when Paul had appealed to be reserved unto the hearing of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept till I might send him to Caesar.
  22. Then Agrippa said unto Festus, I would also hear the man myself. To morrow, said he, thou shalt hear him.
  23. And on the morrow, when Agrippa was come, and Bernice, with great pomp, and was entered into the place of hearing, with the chief captains, and principal men of the city, at Festus' commandment Paul was brought forth.
  24. And Festus said, King Agrippa, and all men which are here present with us, ye see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews have dealt with me, both at Jerusalem, and also here, crying that he ought not to live any longer.
  25. But when I found that he had committed nothing worthy of death, and that he himself hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.
  26. Of whom I have no certain thing to write unto my lord. Wherefore I have brought him forth before you, and specially before thee, O king Agrippa, that, after examination had, I might have somewhat to write.
  27. For it seemeth to me unreasonable to send a prisoner, and not withal to signify the crimes laid against him.
