Bible: Acts 23:25-35
23:26 Claudius Lysias to His Excellency Governor 3 Felix, 4 greetings. 23:27 This man was seized 5 by the Jews and they were about to kill him, 6 when I came up 7 with the detachment 8 and rescued him, because I had learned that he was 9 a Roman citizen. 10 23:28 Since I wanted to know 11 what charge they were accusing him of, 12 I brought him down to their council. 13 23:29 I found he 14 was accused with reference to controversial questions 15 about their law, but no charge against him deserved death or imprisonment. 16 23:30 When I was informed 17 there would be a plot 18 against this man, I sent him to you at once, also ordering his accusers to state their charges 19 against him before you.
23:31 So the soldiers, in accordance with their orders, 20 took 21 Paul and brought him to Antipatris 22 during the night. 23:32 The next day they let 23 the horsemen 24 go on with him, and they returned to the barracks. 25 23:33 When the horsemen 26 came to Caesarea 27 and delivered the letter to the governor, they also presented 28 Paul to him. 23:34 When the governor 29 had read 30 the letter, 31 he asked 32 what province he was from. 33 When he learned 34 that he was from Cilicia, 35 23:35 he said, “I will give you a hearing 36 when your accusers arrive too.” Then 37 he ordered that Paul 38 be kept under guard in Herod’s palace. 39
