Acts 26:24 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Much learning doth make thee mad (τὰ πολλά σε γράμματα εἰς μανίαν περιτρέπει)

The A. V. omits the article with much learning: "the much knowledge" with which thou art busied. Rev., "thy much learning." Doth make thee mad: literally, is turning thee to madness.
