26:9 I verily thought with myself that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
26:10 And this I also did in Jerusalem: and I both shut up many of the saints in prisons, having received authority from the chief priests, and when they were put to death I gave my vote against them.
26:11 And punishing them oftentimes in all the synagogues, I strove to make them blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto foreign cities.

26:21 For this cause the Jews seized me in the temple, and assayed to kill me.
26:23 how that the Christ must suffer, [and] how that he first by the resurrection of the dead should proclaim light both to the people and to the Gentiles.
26:27 King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
26:30 And the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:
26:31 and when they had withdrawn, they spake one to another, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death or of bonds.
