American Standard Version
whom Jason hath received: and these all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
Young's Literal Translation
whom Jason hath received; and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying another to be king -- Jesus.'
Acts 17:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
These all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar - Persecutors always strive to affect the lives of the objects of their hatred, by accusing them of sedition, or plots against the state.
That there is another king, one Jesus - How malevolent was this saying! The apostles proclaimed Jesus as king - that is true; but never once insinuated that his kingdom was of this world. The reverse they always maintained.
