Bible: Acts 23:23-35
23:26 Claudius Lysias to His Excellency Governor 14 Felix, 15 greetings. 23:27 This man was seized 16 by the Jews and they were about to kill him, 17 when I came up 18 with the detachment 19 and rescued him, because I had learned that he was 20 a Roman citizen. 21 23:28 Since I wanted to know 22 what charge they were accusing him of, 23 I brought him down to their council. 24 23:29 I found he 25 was accused with reference to controversial questions 26 about their law, but no charge against him deserved death or imprisonment. 27 23:30 When I was informed 28 there would be a plot 29 against this man, I sent him to you at once, also ordering his accusers to state their charges 30 against him before you.
23:31 So the soldiers, in accordance with their orders, 31 took 32 Paul and brought him to Antipatris 33 during the night. 23:32 The next day they let 34 the horsemen 35 go on with him, and they returned to the barracks. 36 23:33 When the horsemen 37 came to Caesarea 38 and delivered the letter to the governor, they also presented 39 Paul to him. 23:34 When the governor 40 had read 41 the letter, 42 he asked 43 what province he was from. 44 When he learned 45 that he was from Cilicia, 46 23:35 he said, “I will give you a hearing 47 when your accusers arrive too.” Then 48 he ordered that Paul 49 be kept under guard in Herod’s palace. 50
