katapi HOME Acts 21:27-36 - Paul Arrested in the Temple  Ac.21.27-36 (Temple, Jerusalem)

21 27 When the seven days were almost completed, the Jews from Asia, who had seen him in the temple, stirred up all the crowd, and laid hands on him, 21 28 crying out, "Men of Israel, help! This is the man who is teaching men everywhere against the people and the law and this place; moreover he also brought Greeks into the temple, and he has defiled this holy place." 21 29 For they had previously seen Trophimus the Ephesian with him in the city, and they supposed that Paul had brought him into the temple. 21 30 Then all the city was aroused, and the people ran together; they seized Paul and dragged him out of the temple, and at once the gates were shut. 21 31 And as they were trying to kill him, word came to the tribune of the cohort that all Jerusalem was in confusion. 21 32 He at once took soldiers and centurions, and ran down to them; and when they saw the tribune and the soldiers, they stopped beating Paul. 21 33 Then the tribune came up and arrested him, and ordered him to be bound with two chains. He inquired who he was and what he had done. 21 34 Some in the crowd shouted one thing, some another; and as he could not learn the facts because of the uproar, he ordered him to be brought into the barracks. 21 35 And when he came to the steps, he was actually carried by the soldiers because of the violence of the crowd; 21 36 for the mob of the people followed, crying, "Away with him!"
