c. Left to Festus, the Successor of Felix

(1) The Request of the Leaders of the Jews Rejected

1 aFestus therefore, having come into the province, after three days went up to Jerusalem from bCaesarea.

2 And the achief priests and leading men of the Jews gave their information to him against Paul; and they entreated him,

3 Asking for a favor against him, that he would summon him to Jerusalem, they themselves setting an aambush to bdo away with him on the way.

4 Festus therefore answered that Paul was being kept in custody in Caesarea, and that he himself was about to proceed there shortly.

5 Therefore, he said, let 1influential men from among you go down with me, and if there is anything 2wrong in the man, let them aaccuse him.
