251Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days, he went up to Jerusalem from Cesarea.Festus ergo cum venisset in provinciam post triduum ascendit Hierosolymam a Caesarea
252And the chief priests and principal men of the Jews went unto him against Paul: and they besought him,adieruntque eum principes sacerdotum et primi Iudaeorum adversus Paulum et rogabant eum
253Requesting favour against him, that he would command him to be brought to Jerusalem, laying wait to kill him in the way.postulantes gratiam adversum eum ut iuberet perduci eum Hierusalem insidias tendentes ut eum interficerent in via
254But Festus answered: That Paul was kept in Caesarea: and that he himself would very shortly depart thither.Festus autem respondit servari Paulum in Caesarea se autem maturius profecturum
255Let them, therefore, saith he, among you that are able, go down with me and accuse him, if there be any crime in the man.qui ergo in vobis ait potentes sunt descendentes simul si quod est in viro crimen accusent eum
256And having tarried among them no more than eight or ten days, he went down to Caesarea. And the next day, he sat in the judgment seat and commanded Paul to be brought.demoratus autem inter eos dies non amplius quam octo aut decem descendit Caesaream et altera die sedit pro tribunali et iussit Paulum adduci
257Who being brought, the Jews stood about him, who were come down from Jerusalem, objecting many and grievious causes, which they could not prove:qui cum perductus esset circumsteterunt eum qui ab Hierosolyma descenderant Iudaei multas et graves causas obicientes quas non poterant probare
258Paul making answer for himself: Neither against the law of the Jews, nor against the temple, nor against Caesar, have I offended in any thing.Paulo autem rationem reddente quoniam neque in legem Iudaeorum neque in templum neque in Caesarem quicquam peccavi
259But Festus, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, answering Paul, said: Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem and there be judged of these things before me?Festus autem volens Iudaeis gratiam praestare respondens Paulo dixit vis Hierosolymam ascendere et ibi de his iudicari apud me
2510Then Paul said: I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged. To the Jews I have done no injury, as thou very well knowest.dixit autem Paulus ad tribunal Caesaris sto ubi me oportet iudicari Iudaeis non nocui sicut tu melius nosti
2511For if I have injured them or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die. But if there be none of these things whereof they accuse me, no man may deliver me to them. I appeal to Caesar.si enim nocui aut dignum morte aliquid feci non recuso mori si vero nihil est eorum quae hii accusant me nemo potest me illis donare Caesarem appello
2512Then Festus, having conferred with the council, answered: Hast thou appealed to Caesar? To Caesar shalt thou go.tunc Festus cum consilio locutus respondit Caesarem appellasti ad Caesarem ibis
2513And after some days, king Agrippa and Bernice came down to Caesarea, to salute Festus.et cum dies aliquot transacti essent Agrippa rex et Bernice descenderunt Caesaream ad salutandum Festum
2514And as they tarried there many days, Festus told the king of Paul, saying: A certain man was left prisoner by Felix.et cum dies plures ibi demorarentur Festus regi indicavit de Paulo dicens vir quidam est derelictus a Felice vinctus
2515About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the ancients of the Jews came unto me, desiring condemnation against him.de quo cum essem Hierosolymis adierunt me principes sacerdotum et seniores Iudaeorum postulantes adversus illum damnationem
2516To whom I answered: it is not the custom of the Romans to condemn any man, before that he who is accused have his accusers present and have liberty to make his answer, to clear himself of the things laid to his charge.ad quos respondi quia non est consuetudo Romanis donare aliquem hominem priusquam is qui accusatur praesentes habeat accusatores locumque defendendi accipiat ad abluenda crimina
2517When therefore they were come hither, without any delay, on the day following, sitting in the judgment seat, I commanded the man to be brought.cum ergo huc convenissent sine ulla dilatione sequenti die sedens pro tribunali iussi adduci virum
2518Against whom, when the accusers stood up, they brought no accusation of this which I thought ill of:de quo cum stetissent accusatores nullam causam deferebant de quibus ego suspicabar malum
2519But had certain questions of their own superstition against him, and of one Jesus deceased, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.quaestiones vero quasdam de sua superstitione habebant adversus eum et de quodam Iesu defuncto quem adfirmabat Paulus vivere
2520I therefore being in a doubt of this manner of question, asked him whether he would go to Jerusalem and there be judged of these things.haesitans autem ego de huiusmodi quaestione dicebam si vellet ire Hierosolymam et ibi iudicari de istis
2521But Paul, appealing to be reserved unto the hearing of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept, till I might send him to Caesar.Paulo autem appellante ut servaretur ad Augusti cognitionem iussi servari eum donec mittam eum ad Caesarem
2522And Agrippa said to Festus: I would also hear the man, myself. To-morrow, said he, thou shalt hear him.Agrippa autem ad Festum volebam et ipse hominem audire cras inquit audies eum
2523And on the next day, when Agrippa and Bernice were come with great pomp and had entered into the hall of audience with the tribunes and principal men of the city, at Festus' commandment, Paul was brought forth.altera autem die cum venisset Agrippa et Bernice cum multa ambitione et introissent in auditorium cum tribunis et viris principalibus civitatis et iubente Festo adductus est Paulus
2524And Festus saith: King Agrippa and all ye men who are here present with us, you see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews dealt with me at Jerusalem, requesting and crying out that he ought not to live any longer.et dixit Festus Agrippa rex et omnes qui simul adestis nobiscum viri videtis hunc de quo omnis multitudo Iudaeorum interpellavit me Hierosolymis petens et hic clamantes non oportere eum vivere amplius
2525Yet have I found nothing that he hath committed worthy of death. But forasmuch as he himself hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.ego vero conperi nihil dignum eum morte admisisse ipso autem hoc appellante Augustum iudicavi mittere
2526Of whom I have nothing certain to write to my lord. For which cause, I have brought him forth before you, and especially before thee, O king Agrippa, that, examination being made, I may have what to write.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
2527For it seemeth to me unreasonable to send a prisoner and not to signify the things laid to his charge.sine ratione enim mihi videtur mittere vinctum et causas eius non significare
