Claudius Lysias to Felix
the Holy Bible

--Acts of the Apostles--

And he wrote a letter after this manner: (23:25)

Claudius Lysias unto the most excellent governor Felix [sendeth] greeting. (23:26)

This man was taken of the Jews, and should have been killed of them: then came I with an army, and rescued him, having understood that he was a Roman. (23:27)

And when I would have known the cause wherefore they accused him, I brought him forth into their council: (23:28)

Whom I perceived to be accused of questions of their law, but to have nothing laid to his charge worthy of death or of bonds. (23:29)

And when it was told me how that the Jews laid wait for the man, I sent straightway to thee, and gave commandment to his accusers also to say before thee what [they had] against him. Farewell. (23:30)
