Paul Questioned By The Military Tribune

27 Then the upper-captain came to him, and said, "Tell me, art thou a Roman?" He said, "Yea." 28 And the high captain answered, "With a great sum obtained I this freedom." And Paul said, "I was freeborn." 29 Then straightway departed from him they which should have examined him. And the high captain also was afraid, after he knew that he was a Roman: because he had bound him.
