Acts 24:1  ¶And after five days Ananias the high priest descended with the elders, and with a certain orator named Tertullus, who informed the governor against Paul.
2  And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy providence,
3  We accept it always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.
4  Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few words.
5  For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:
6  Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.
7  But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,
8  Commanding his accusers to come unto thee: by examining of whom thyself mayest take knowledge of all these things, whereof we accuse him.
9  And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.
10  ¶Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:
11  Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.
12  And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:
13  Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.
14  But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
15  And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
16  And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.

Psalms 109:1  ¶<<To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.>> Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
2  For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
3  They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
4  For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.
5  And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
6  ¶Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
7  When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
8  Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
9  Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
10  Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
11  Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.
12  Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
13  Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
14  Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15  Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
16  Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

Acts 24:17  Now after many years I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.
18  Whereupon certain Jews from Asia found me purified in the temple, neither with multitude, nor with tumult.
19  Who ought to have been here before thee, and object, if they had ought against me.
20  Or else let these same here say, if they have found any evil doing in me, while I stood before the council,
21  Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day.
22  ¶And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.
23  And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him.
24  And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
25  And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.
26  He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.
27  But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix' room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

Psalms 109:17  As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
18  As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
19  Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
20  Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
21  ¶But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.
22  For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
23  I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.
24  My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
25  I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
26  Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
27  That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it.
28  Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
29  Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
30  I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.
31  For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.

Acts 25:7  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.

Psalms 110:1  ¶<<A Psalm of David.>> The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2  The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
3  Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
4  The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
5  ¶The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
6  He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
7  He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Acts 26:2  I 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:
3  Especially 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.
4  My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
5  Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
6  And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
7  Unto 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.
8  Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
9  I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
10  Which 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.
11  And 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.
12  ¶Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,
13  At 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.

Psalms 111:1  ¶Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
2  The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
3  His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4  He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
5  He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
6  ¶He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
7  The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
8  They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
9  He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

Acts 22:14  And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.
15  For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.
16  And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
17  And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;
18  And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
19  And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee:
20  And when the blood of thy martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by, and consenting unto his death, and kept the raiment of them that slew him.
21  And he said unto me, Depart: for I will send thee far hence unto the Gentiles.
22  ¶And they gave him audience unto this word, and then lifted up their voices, and said, Away with such a fellow from the earth: for it is not fit that he should live.
23  And as they cried out, and cast off their clothes, and threw dust into the air,
24  The chief captain commanded him to be brought into the castle, and bade that he should be examined by scourging; that he might know wherefore they cried so against him.
25  And as they bound him with thongs, Paul said unto the centurion that stood by, Is it lawful for you to scourge a man that is a Roman, and uncondemned?

Psalms 112:1  ¶Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2  His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3  Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4  Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
5  A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6  ¶Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
9  He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Acts 23:1  ¶And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day.
2  And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.
3  Then 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?
4  And they that stood by said, Revilest thou God's high priest?
5  Then 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.
6  ¶But 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.
7  And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.
8  For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.
9  And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.

Psalms 113:1  ¶Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
2  Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
3  From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name is to be praised.
4  The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5  Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
6  Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
7  He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8  That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9  He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

Acts 23:11  And the night following the Lord stood by him, and said, Be of good cheer, Paul: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome.
12  ¶And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.
13  And they were more than forty which had made this conspiracy.
14  And they came to the chief priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under a great curse, that we will eat nothing until we have slain Paul.
15  Now therefore ye with the council signify to the chief captain that he bring him down unto you to morrow, as though ye would enquire something more perfectly concerning him: and we, or ever he come near, are ready to kill him.
16  And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.
17  Then Paul called one of the centurions unto him, and said, Bring this young man unto the chief captain: for he hath a certain thing to tell him.
18  So he took him, and brought him to the chief captain, and said, Paul the prisoner called me unto him, and prayed me to bring this young man unto thee, who hath something to say unto thee.
19  Then the chief captain took him by the hand, and went with him aside privately, and asked him, What is that thou hast to tell me?
20  And he said, The Jews have agreed to desire thee that thou wouldest bring down Paul to morrow into the council, as though they would enquire somewhat of him more perfectly.
21  But do not thou yield unto them: for there lie in wait for him of them more than forty men, which have bound themselves with an oath, that they will neither eat nor drink till they have killed him: and now are they ready, looking for a promise from thee.
22  So the chief captain then let the young man depart, and charged him, See thou tell no man that thou hast shewed these things to me.

Psalms 114:1  ¶When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
2  Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
3  The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
4  The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
5  What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
6  Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
7  Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
8  Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalms 115:1  ¶Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
2  Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
3  But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

Acts 23:35  I will hear thee, said he, when thine accusers are also come. And he commanded him to be kept in Herod's judgment hall.
