kjv@Acts:25:1@ Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days he ascended from Caesarea to Jerusalem.
kjv@Acts:25:2@ Then the high priest and the chief of the Jews informed him against Paul, and besought him,
kjv@Acts:25:3@ And desired favour against him, that he would send for him to Jerusalem, laying wait in the way to kill him.
kjv@Acts:25:4@ But Festus answered, that Paul should be kept at Caesarea, and that he himself would depart shortly thither.
kjv@Acts:25:5@ Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, go down with me, and accuse this man, if there be any wickedness in him.
kjv@Acts:25:6@ And when he had tarried among them more than ten days, he went down unto Caesarea; and the next day sitting on the judgment seat commanded Paul to be brought.
kjv@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.
kjv@Acts:25:8@ 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.
kjv@Acts:25:9@ 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?
kjv@Acts:25:10@ 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.
kjv@Acts:25:11@ 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.
kjv@Acts:25:12@ Then Festus, when he had conferred with the council, answered, Hast thou appealed unto Caesar? unto Caesar shalt thou go.
