Paul the prisoner (ho desmios Paulos). Bound (desmios) to a soldier, but not with two chains (Act 21:33), and with some freedom to see his friends as later (Act 28:16), in military custody (custodia militaris). This was better than custodia publica (public custody), the common prison, but more confining.
Who hath something to say to thee (echonta tōi lalēsai soi). Same idiom as in Act 23:17, Act 23:19, but lalēsai here instead of apaggeilai.
