“Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.”
King James Version (KJV)
24:10 Knowing - for several years thou hast been a judge over this nation - And so not unacquainted with our religious rites and customs, and consequently more capable of understanding and deciding a cause of this nature. There was no flattery in this. It was a plain fact. He governed Judea six or seven years. I answer for myself - As it may be observed, his answer exactly corresponds with the three articles of Tertullus's charge: sedition, heresy, and profanation of the temple. As to the first, he suggests,. that he had not been long enough at Jerusalem to form a party and attempt an insurrection: (for it was about twelve days since he came up thither; five of which he had been at Cesarea, #Acts 24:1|; one or two were spent in his journey thither, and most of the rest he had been confined at Jerusalem.) And he challenges them, in fact, to produce any evidence of such practices, #Acts 24:11 |- 13. As to the second, he confesses himself to be a Christian; but maintains this to be a religion perfectly agreeable to the law and the prophets, and therefore deserving a fair reception, #Acts 24:14|,16. And as for profaning the temple, he observes that he behaved there in a most peaceful and regular manner, so that his innocence had been manifest even before the sanhedrim, where the authors of the tumult did not dare to appear against him.
Ac 24:11 There are yet but twelve days. "It is not more than twelve days" (Revised Version). It would be easy for Felix to ascertain the facts, for only twelve days had passed since he returned to Judea, after many years absence. Of these twelve, the first is the day Paul meets James and the elders (Ac 21:18), the second he enters upon his vow (Ac 21:26), the seventh he is seized in the temple (Ac 21:27), the eighth tried before the Sanhedrin (Ac 22:30), the eleventh day he is delivered to Felix (Ac 23:33), and the thirteenth appears before his court.
Because that thou mayest vnderstand, that there are yet but twelue dayes, since I went vp to Hierusalem for to worship.
