19 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I vv^as
not disobedient unto the heavenly vision :

20 But 'shewed first unto them of Da-
mascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all
the coasts of Judea, and ihen\.o 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 y 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.

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 hid-
den from him ; for this thing was not done
in a corner.

27 King Agrippa, believest thou the pro-
phets ? 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, eif he had
not appealed unto Cesar.

named Julius, a centurion of Augustus'

2 And entering into a ship of Adramyt-
tium, we launched, meaning to sail by the
coasts of Asia, one i" Aristarchus, a Macedo-
nian of Thessalonica, being with us.

3 And the next day we touched at Sidon.
And Julius "= courteously entreated Paul, and
gave him liberty to go unto his friends to re-
fresh himself.

4 And when we had launched from thence,
we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds
were contrary.

5 And when we had sailed over the sea of
Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a
city of Lycia.

6 And there the centurion found a ship of
Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us

7 And when we had sailed slowly many
days, and scarce were come over against Cni-
dus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under
II Crete, over against Salmone :

8 And hardly passing it, came unto a
place which is called. The Fair Havens ; nigh
whereunto was the city of Lasea.

9 Now when much time was spent, and
when sailing was now dangerous, ■* because
the fast was now already past, Paul admon-
ished them,

10 And said unto them. Sirs, I perceive
that this voyage will be with || hurt and much
damage, not only of the lading and ship, but
also of our lives.

11 Nevertheless, the centurion believed
the master and the owner of the ship more
than those things which were spoken by Paul.

12 And because the haven was not com-
modious to winter in, the more part advised
to depart thence also, if by any means they
might attain to Phenice, and there to winter ;
which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward
the south-west and north-west.

13 And when the south wind blew softly,
supposing that they had obtained their pur-
pose, loosing thence, they sailed close by

14 But not long after there || arose against
it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

15 And when the ship was caught, and
could not bear up into the wind, we let her

16 And running under a certain island
which is called Clauda, we 'had much work
to come by the boat :

17 Which when they had taken up, they
used helps, undergirding the ship ; and fear-
ing lest they should fall into the quicksands,
strake sail, and so were driven.

a tempest, the next day they hghtened the
ship ;

19 And the third day " we cast out with
our own hands the tackHng of the ship.

20 And when neither sun nor stars in
many days appeared, and no small tempest
lay on us, all hope that we should be saved
was then taken away.

21 But after long abstinence, Paul stood
forth in the midst of them, and said. Sirs, ye
should have hearkened unto me, and not have
loosed from Crete, and to have gained this
harm and loss.

22 And now I exhort you to be of good
cheer : for there shall be no loss of any man's
life among you, but of the ship.

23 Tor there stood by me this night the
angel of God, whose I am, and ewhom I serve,

24 Saying, Fear not, Paul ; thou must be
brought before Cesar : and lo, God hath
given thee all them that sail with thee.

25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: ''for
I believe God, that it shall be even as it was
told me.

26 Howbeit, 'we must be cast upon a cer-
tain island.

27 But v/hen the fourteenth night was
come, as we were driven up and down in
Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed
that they drew near to some country ;

28 And sounded, and found it twenty
fathoms : and when they had gone a little
further, they sounded again, and found if
fifteen fathoms.

29 Then fearing lest they should have fal-
len upon rocks, they cast folir anchors out
of the stern, and wished for the day.

30 And as the shipmen were about to flee
out of the ship, when they had let down the
boat into the sea, under colour as though they
would have cast anchors out of the foreship,

31 Paul said to the centurion, and to the
soldiers. Except these abide in the ship, ye
cannot be saved.

32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of
the boat, and let her fall off.

33 And while the day was coming on,
Paul besought them all to take meat, saying.
This day is the fourteenth day that ye have
tarried, and continued fasting, having taken

34 Wherefore I pray you to take soms
meat ; for this is for your health: for ''there

35 And when he had thus spoken, he took
bread, and ' gave thanks to God in presence
of them all ; and when he had broken it, he
began to eat. •

36 Then were they all of good cheer, and
tliey also took some meat. i

hundred threescore and sixteen "souls.

38 And when they had eaten enough, they
lightened the ship, and cast out the wheat
into the sea,

39 And when it was day, they knew not
the land: but they discovered a certain creek
with a shore, into the which they were minded,
if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.

40 And when they had || taken up the
anchors, they committed themselves unto the
sea, and loosed the rudder-bands, and hoised
up the mainsail to the wind, and made to-
ward shore.

41 And falling into a place where two seas
met, "they ran the ship aground; and the
forepart stuck fast, and remained unmove-
able, but the hinder part was broken with
the violence of the waves.

42 And the soldiers' counsel was to kill
the prisoners, lest any of them should swim
out, and escape.

43 But the centurion, willing to save Paul,
kept them from their purpose, and command-
ed that they which could swim, should cast
themselves first into the sea, and get to land :

44 And the rest, some on boards, and some
on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came
to pass, "that they escaped ail safe to land.

CHAP. xxvm.

1 Paul after his shipwreck is kindly entertained of the
barbarians. 5 The viper on his hand hurteth him not.
8 He healeth many diseases in the island. 11 They
depart towards Rome. 17 He dedareth to the Jews
the cause of his coming. 24 After his preaching some
were persuaded, and some believed not. 30 Yet he
preacheth there two years.

AND when they were escaped, then they
knew that ^the island was called Me-

2 And the ''barbarous people, shewed us
no little kindness : for they kindled a fire,
and received us every one, because of the
present rain, and because of the cold.

3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle
of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there!
came a viper out of the heat, and fastened
on his hand.

4 And when the barbarians saw the ve-
nomous beast hang on his hand, they said
among themselves. No doubt this man is a
murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the
sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.

5 And he shook off the beast into the fire,
and <=felt no harm.

6 Howbeit, they looked when he should
have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly :
but after they had looked a great while, and
saw no harm come to him, they changed their
minds, and "^ said that he was a god.

He healeth many diseased in the island. CHAP, XXVIII.

7 In the same quarters were possessions
of the chief man of the island, whose name
was PubHus; who received us, and lodged
us three days courteously.
-^ 8 And it came to pass, that the father of
Publius lay sick of a fever, and of a bloody-
flux: to whom Paul entered in, and Sprayed,
and ''laid his hands on him, and healed him.

9 So when this was done, others also which
had diseases in the island, came, and were
healed :

10 Who also honoured us with many
ff honours ; and when we departed, they laded
us with such things as were necessary.

11 And after three months we departed
in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered
in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.

12 And landing at Syracuse, we tarried
there three days.

13 And from thence we fetched a compass,
and came to Rhegium : and after one day the
south wind blew, and we came the next day
to Puteoli :

14 Where we found brethren, and were
desired to tarry with them seven days : and
so we went toward Rome.

15 And from thence, when the brethren
heard of us, they came to meet us as far as
Appii-forum,andThe Three Taverns; whom
when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took

17 And it came to pass, that after three
days, Paul called the chief of the Jews to-
gether. And when they were come together,
he said unto them. Men and brethren,
'though I have committed nothing against
the people, or customs of our fathers, yet
■'was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into
the hands of the Romans:

18 Who 'when they had examined me,
would have let me go, because there was no
cause of death in me.

He preacheth the gospel at Rome.

'"I was constrained to appeal unto Cesar; not
that I had aught to accuse my nation of.

20 For this cause therefore have I called
for you, to see you, and to speak with you:
because that "for the hope of Israel I am
bound with ^this chain.

21 And they said unto him. We neither
received letters outof Judea concerning thee,
neither any of the brethren that came shewed
or spake any harm of thee.

22 But we desire to hear of thee, what
thou thinkest : for as concerning this sect, we
know that every where Pit is spoken against.

23 And when they had appointed him a
day, there came many to him into his lodging r
ito whom he expounded and testified the
kingdom of God, persuading them concerning
Jesus, ' both out of the law of Moses, and out
of the prophets, from morning till evening.

24 And «some believed the things which
were spoken, and some believed not.

25 And when they agreed not among them-
selves, they departed, after that Paul had
spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost
by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,

26 Saying, *Go unto this people, and say,
Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not under-
stand ; and seeing ye shall see, and not per-

27 For the heart of this people is waxed
gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and
their eyes have they closed ; lest they should
see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart, and should
be converted, and I should heal them.

28 Be it known therefore unto you, that
the salvation of God is sent " unto the Gen-
tiles, and that they will hear it.

29 And when he had said these words,
the Jews departed, and had great reasoning
among themselves.

30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in
his own hired house, and received all that
came in unto him,

31 ^Preaching the kingdom of God, and
teaching those things which concern the Lord
Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man
forbidding him.

16 For ^I am not ashamed of the goSpel
of Christ: for ''it is the power of God unto
salvation to every one that believeth; '^to the
Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17 For s therein is the righteousness of
God revealed from faith to faith : as it is
written, ''The just shall live by faith.

18 ' For the wrath of God is revealed from
heaven against all ungodliness, and unright-
eousness of men, who hold the truth in un-

19 Because ''that which may be known of
God, is manifest ||in them; for 'God hath
shewed it unto them.

20 For "'the invisible things of him from
the creation of the world are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made,
even his eternal power and Godhead; [|so
that they are without excuse :

21 Because that when they knew God,
they glorified him not as God, neither were
thankful, but "became vain in their imagina-
tions, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 "Professing themselves to be wise, they
became fools;

23 And changed the glory of the uncor-
ruptible p God into an image made like to
corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed
beasts, and creeping things.

24 1 Wherefore God also gave them up to
uncleanness, through the lusts of their own
hearts, ■'to dishonour their own bodies ^be-
tween themselves :

25 Who changed 'the truth of God "into
a lie, and worshipped and served the creature
II more than the Creator, who is blessed for
ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto
^vile aflfections. For even their women did
change the natural use into that which is
against nature :

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the
natural use of the woman, burned in their
lust one toward another ; men with men work-
ing that which is unseemly, and receiving in
themselves that recompense of their error
which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like || to
retain God in their knowledge, God gave
them over to || a reprobate mind, to do those
things ^ which are not convenient :

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness


They that sin cannot excuse themselves,

fornication, wickedness, covetousness, mali-
ciousness ; full of envy, murder, debate, de-
ceit, malignity ; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful,
proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, dis-
obedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenant-
breakers, II without natural affection, impla-
cable, unmerciful :

32 Who, * knowing the judgment of God,
that they which commit such things ''are
worthy of death; not only do the same, but
II "have pleasure in them that do them.


1 They that sin, though they condemn it in others, cannot
excuse themselves, 6'and much less escape the judg-
ment of God, 9 whether they be Jews or Gentiles.
14 The Gentiles cannot escape, 17 nor yet the Jews,
25 whom their circumcision shall not profit, if they
keep not the law.

THEREFORE thou art inexcusable,
O man, whosoever thou art, that judgest :
^ for wherein thou judgest another, thou con-
. demnest thyself; for thou that judgest, doest
the same things.

2 But we are sure that the judgment of
God is according to truth, against them which
commit such things.

3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that
judgest them which do such things, and doest
the same, that thou shalt escape the judg-
ment of God ?

4 Ordespisest thou "the riches of his good-
ness, and ^forbearance, and "long-suffering;
•"not knowing that the goodness of God lead-
eth thee to repentance ?

5 But after thy hardness and impenitent
heart, etreasurest up unto thyself wrath
against the day of wrath, and revelation of
the righteous judgment of God ;

6 ■» Who will render to every man accord-
ing to his deeds :

7 To them who by patient continuance in
well-doing, seek for glory, and honour, and
immortality ; eternal life :

8 But unto them that are contentious, and
' do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteous-
ness; indignation and wrath,

9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every
eoul of man that doeth evil; of the Jew ''first,
and also of the t Gentile ;

10 'But glory, honour, and peace, to every
man that worketh good ; to the Jew first, and
also to the t Gentile ;

11 For "there is no respect of persons
with God.

12 For as many as have sinned without
law, shall also perish without law : and as many
as have sinned in the law, shall be judged by
the law.
