Atos 21

1 When and it happened to have sailed us having separated from them, having run a straight course we came to the Coos, the and next to the Rhodes, and thence to Patara.

2 And having found a ship passing over to Phenicia, going on board we set sail.

3 Having come in view and the Cyprus, and having left behind her on the left, we sailed into Syria, and were brought to Tyre; there for was the ship unloading the freight.

4 And having found the disciples, we remained there days seven; these to the Paul said through the spirit, not to go up to Jerusalem.

5 When and it happened us to have completed the days, having gone out we went our way, accompanying us all with wives and children, till outside of the city; and having placed the knees on the shore, we prayed.

6 And having embraced each other, entered into the ship; they and returned into the own.

7 We and the voyage having finished, from Tyre we came down to Ptolemais; and having embraced the brethren, we remained day one with them.

8 On the and morrow having gone out we came into Caesarea; and having entered into the house of Philip the Evangelist, being from of the seven, we remained with him.

9 To this and were daughters virgins four being gifted with prophecy.

10 Continuing and of us days many, came down a certain from the Judea a prophet by name Agabus;

11 and having come to us, and having taken the girdle of the Paul, having bound and of himself the hands and the feet, said: Thus says the spirit the holy: The man, of whom is the girdle this, so shall bind in Jerusalem the Jews, and deliver into hands of Gentiles.

12 When and they heard these things, entreated we both and those of the place, of the not to go up him to Jerusalem.

13 Answered and the Paul: What do you, weeping and breaking of me the heart? I for not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem in readiness I in behalf of the name of the Lord Jesus.

14 Not being persuaded and of him, we were silent, saying: The will of the Lord let it be done.

15 After and the days these packing up baggage we went up to Jerusalem.

16 Went with and also of the disciples from Caesarea with us, leading with whom we might lodge, to Mnason one Cyprian, an old disciple.

17 Having arrived and of us to Jerusalem, gladly received us the brethren.

18 On the and next had entered the Paul with us to James all and were present the elders.

19 And having saluted them, he related one by one, which did the God among the Gentiles through the service of him.

20 They and having heard glorified the God; they said and to him: Thou seest, O brother, how many myriads are of Jews of those having believed; and all zealots of the law being.

21 They were informed and concerning thee, that apostacy thou teachest from Moses those among the Gentiles all Jews, saying, not to circumcise them the children, nor the customs to walk.

22 What then it is? certainly must multitude to assemble; they will hear for that thou hast come.

23 This therefore do thou, what to thee we say: Are to us men four a vow having upon themselves.

24 These having taken, be thou purified with them, and be at expense for them, that they may shave the head, and will know all, that the things they have been informed concerning thee nothing is, but walkest orderly also himself the law keeping.

25 Concerning but those having believed of Gentiles we sent word, judging nothing such like to observe them, if not to keep themselves the, both things offered to idols and the blood and strangled and fornication.

26 Then the Paul having taken the men, on the following day with them being purified entered into the temple, announcing the completion of the days of the purification, till of which they offered in behalf of one of each of them the offering.

27 When and were about the seven days to be completed, those from the Asia Jews having seen him in the temple, stirred up all the crowd, and put on him the hands,

28 crying: Men Israelites, help you; this is the man, who against the people and the law and the place this all everywhere is teaching; besides and also Greeks be led into the temple, and has made common the holy place this.

29 (Were for having been before Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with him, whom they supposed that into the temple led the Paul.)

30 Was moved and the city whole, and was a running together of the people; and having taken hold of the Paul, they were dragging him outside of the temple, and immediately were closed the gates.

31 Seeking and him to kill, went up a report to the commander of the band, that whole was in confusion Jerusalem;

32 who immediately having taken soldiers and centurions, ran down upon them. They and seeing the commander and the soldiers, ceased beating the Paul.

33 Then having approached the commander laid hold of him, and ordered to be bound with chains two; and inquired, who it might be, and what it is having been done.

34 Others and another thing were crying in the crowd. Not being able and to know the certainly through the tumult, he ordered to be brought him into the castle.

35 When and he came on the steps, it happened to be carried him by the soldiers through the violence of the crowd;

36 followed for the multitude of the people, crying: Lift up him.

37 Bring about and to be led into the castle the Paul, he says to the commander: If it is permitted for me to say anything to thee? He and said: Greek understandest thou?

38 Not then thou art the Egyptian, who before these the days having raised an insurrection and having led out into the desert the four thousand men of the Sicarii? Said and the Paul:

39 I a man indeed am a Jew of Tarsus, of the Cilicia not a mean city a citizen; I beseech and of thee, permit me to speak to the people.

40 Having permitted and him, the Paul having been set on the steps waved with the hand to the people; great and silence occurring, he spoke in the Hebrew dialect, saying:
