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.

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:

Psalms 115:4  Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5  They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6  They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7  They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8  They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
9  ¶O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
10  O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
11  Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
12  The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
13  He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
14  The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
15  Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
16  The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
17  The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
18  But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.

Acts 24:11  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.
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.

Psalms 116:1  ¶I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2  Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3  The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
4  Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
5  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
6  The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
7  Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8  For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9  I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10  ¶I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
11  I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12  What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
13  I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
14  I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

Acts 25:12  Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Hast thou appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt thou go.

Acts 25:25  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.

Psalms 116:15  Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16  O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
17  I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
18  I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
19  In the courts of the LORD'S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalms 117:1  ¶O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
2  For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

Acts 26:1  ¶Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:
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,

Psalms 118:1  ¶O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.
2  Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
3  Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
4  Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
5  I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
6  The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
7  The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
8  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
9  It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

Acts 26:13  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.
14  And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
15  And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16  But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17  Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18  To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
19  Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
20  But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
21  For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.
22  Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
23  That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.

Psalms 118:10  All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
11  They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
12  They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
13  Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
14  The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15  The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
16  The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
17  I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18  The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
19  ¶Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20  This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.

Acts 26:24  ¶And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
25  But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
26  For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.
27  King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
28  Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
29  And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.
30  And when he had thus spoken, the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:
31  And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death or of bonds.
32  Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Caesar.

Acts 27:1  ¶And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band.
