katapi HOME Acts 22:22-29 - Paul and the Roman Tribune  Ac.22.22-29

22 22 Up to this word they listened to him; then they lifted up their voices and said, "Away with such a fellow from the earth! For he ought not to live." 22 23 And as they cried out and waved their garments and threw dust into the air, 22 24 the tribune commanded him to be brought into the barracks, and ordered him to be examined by scourging, to find out why they shouted thus against him. 22 25 But when they had tied him up with the thongs, Paul said to the centurion who was standing by, "Is it lawful for you to scourge a man who is a Roman citizen, and uncondemned?" 22 26 When the centurion heard that, he went to the tribune and said to him, "What are you about to do? For this man is a Roman citizen." 22 27 So the tribune came and said to him, "Tell me, are you a Roman citizen?" And he said, "Yes." 22 28 The tribune answered, "I bought this citizenship for a large sum." Paul said, "But I was born a citizen." 22 29 So those who were about to examine him withdrew from him instantly; and the tribune also was afraid, for he realized that Paul was a Roman citizen and that he had bound him.
