宗徒大事錄 Acts
1斐斯托到省上任,三天以後,就從凱撒勒雅上了耶路撒冷。1Now when Festus was come into the province, after three days, he went up to Jerusalem from Caesarea.
2司祭長和猶太人的首領,向他告發保祿,並請求他開恩,2And the chief priests, and principal men of the Jews, went unto him against Paul: and they besought him,
3來對付保祿,就是求他將保祿解到耶路撒冷來,他們好設下埋伏,在半路上將他殺掉。3Requesting favour against him, that he would command him to be brought to Jerusalem, laying wait to kill him in the way.
4可是,斐斯托回答說:「保祿應押在凱撒勒雅,我自己不久就快回去;」4But Festus answered: That Paul was kept in Caesarea, and that he himself would very shortly depart thither.
5又說:「你們中有權勢的人,跟我一同下去,若在那人身上有甚麼不對處,控告他好了。」5Let them, therefore, saith he, among you that are able, go down with me, and accuse him, if there be any crime in the man.
6斐斯托在他們中住了不過八天或十天,就下到了凱撒勒雅。第二天坐堂,下令將保祿帶來;6And having tarried among them no more than eight or ten days, he went down to Caesarea, and the next day he sat in the judgment seat; and commanded Paul to be brought.
7保祿一來到,從耶路撒冷下來的猶太人就圍住他,提出許多嚴重而不能證明的罪狀。7Who being brought, the Jews stood about him, who were come down from Jerusalem, objecting many and grievous causes, which they could not prove;
8保祿分辯說:「我對於猶太人的法律,對於聖殿,對於凱撒,都沒有犯甚麼罪。」8Paul making answer for himself: Neither against the law of the Jews, nor against the temple, nor against Caesar, have I offended in any thing.
9斐斯托想要向猶太人討好,就向保祿說:「關於這些事,你願意上耶路撒冷,在那裡於我面前受審嗎?」9But Festus, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, answering Paul, said: Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
10保祿卻說:「我站在凱撒的公堂前,我該在這裡受審。我對猶太人並沒有作過不對的事,就是你也知道的很清楚。10Then Paul said: I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged. To the Jews I have done no injury, as thou very well knowest.
11假如我作了不對的事,或作了甚麼該死的事,我雖死不辭;但若這些人所控告我的,都是實無其事,那麼誰也不能將我交與他們;我向凱撒上訴。」11For if I have injured them, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die. But if there be none of these things whereof they accuse me, no man may deliver me to them: I appeal to Caesar.
12斐斯托與議會商議之後,回答說:「你既向凱撒上訴,就往凱撒那裡去!」12Then Festus having conferred with the council, answered: Hast thou appealed to Caesar? To Caesar shalt thou go.
13過了幾天,阿格黎帕王同貝勒尼切到了凱撒勒雅,向斐斯托致候。13And after some days, king Agrippa and Bernice came down to Caesarea to salute Festus.
14他們在那裡住了多日,斐斯托就將保祿的事件,陳述給王說:「這裡有一個人,是斐理斯留在獄中的囚犯。14And as they tarried there many days, Festus told the king of Paul, saying: A certain man was left prisoner by Felix.
15我在耶路撒冷的時候,司祭長和猶太人的長老告發他,要求定他的罪。15About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests, and the ancients of the Jews, came unto me, desiring condemnation against him.
16我回答他們說:當被告還沒有與原告當面對質,還沒有機會辯護控告他的事以前,就將那人交出,不合羅馬人的規例。16To whom I answered: It is not the custom of the Romans to condemn any man, before that he who is accused have his accusers present, and have liberty to make his answer, to clear himself of the things laid to his charge.
17及至他們來到這裡,我一點也沒有遲延,次日便坐堂,下令把那人帶來。17When therefore they were come hither, without any delay, on the day following, sitting in the judgment seat, I commanded the man to be brought.
18原告站起來,對他沒有提出一件罪案,是我所逆料的惡事;18Against whom, when the accusers stood up, they brought no accusation of things which I thought ill of:
19他們的爭辯,僅是關於他們的宗教及關於一個已死的耶穌,保祿卻說他還活著。19But had certain questions of their own superstition against him, and of one Jesus deceased, whom Paul affirmed to be alive.
20我對這爭執不知如何處理,就問他是否願意去耶路撒冷,在那裡受審。20I therefore being in a doubt of this manner of question, asked him whether he would go to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things.
21可是,保祿卻要求上訴,將他留給皇帝審斷,我便下令留下他,等我解他到凱撒那裡。」21But Paul appealing to be reserved unto the hearing of Augustus, I commanded him to be kept, till I might send him to Caesar.
22阿格黎帕向斐斯托說:「我也願意親自聽聽這個人。」斐斯托說:「明天你就可以聽他。」22And Agrippa said to Festus: I would also hear the man, myself. Tomorrow, said he, thou shalt hear him.
23第二天,阿格黎帕和貝勒尼切來時甚是排場,偕同千夫長及城裡的要人進了廳堂;斐斯托下令,把保祿帶來。23And on the next day, when Agrippa and Bernice were come with great pomp, and had entered into the hall of audience, with the tribunes, and principal men of the city, at Festus' commandment, Paul was brought forth.
24斐斯托說:「阿格黎帕王和同我們在場的眾人,你們看這個人,為了他,所有的猶太群眾曾在耶路撒冷和這裡向我請求,呼喊說:不該容他再活下去。24And Festus saith: King Agrippa, and all ye men who are here present with us, you see this man, about whom all the multitude of the Jews dealt with me at Jerusalem, requesting and crying out that he ought not to live any longer.
25但我查明他並沒有作過甚麼該死的事。他既把這案子向皇帝上訴了,我便決定把他解去。25Yet have I found nothing that he hath committed worthy of death. But forasmuch as he himself hath appealed to Augustus, I have determined to send him.
26我對這人沒有甚麼確實的事可向主上陳奏;因此我將他帶到你們前,尤其你阿格黎帕王前,好在審訊以後,有所陳奏,26Of whom I have nothing certain to write to my lord. For which cause I have brought him forth before you, and especially before thee, O king Agrippa, that examination being made, I may have what to write.
27因為我以為,解送囚犯而不指明他的罪狀,於理不合。」27For it seemeth to me unreasonable to send a prisoner, and not to signify the things laid to his charge.
