nd when Gallio was deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with

one accord against Paul, and brought him before the judgment seat, saying,

This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law. And

when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, If it

were a matter wrong, or of wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would,

that I should bear with you. But if it be a question of words and names

and of your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters. And

he virave them from the judgment seat. Then all the Greeks took Sos-

thenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment

seat. And Gallio cared for none of these things.-Acts xviii. 12—17. 117
