Acts 24:1-9 World English Bible (WEB)

24 After five days, the high priest, Ananias, came down with certain elders and an orator, one Tertullus. They informed the governor against Paul. When he was called, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, “Seeing that by you we enjoy much peace, and that prosperity is coming to this nation by your foresight, we accept it in all ways and in all places, most excellent Felix, with all thankfulness. But that I don’t delay you, I entreat you to bear with us and hear a few words. For we have found this man to be a plague, an instigator of insurrections among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes. He even tried to profane the temple, and we arrested him.[a] [b] [c]By examining him yourself you may ascertain all these things of which we accuse him.”

The Jews also joined in the attack, affirming that these things were so.


  1. 24:6 TR adds “We wanted to judge him according to our law,”
  2. 24:7 TR adds “but the commanding officer, Lysias, came by and with great violence took him out of our hands,”
  3. 24:8 TR adds “commanding his accusers to come to you.”
