New International Version
Let some of your leaders come with me, and if the man has done anything wrong, they can press charges against him there."
King James Bible
Let them therefore, said he, which among you are able, go down with me, and accuse this man, if there be any wickedness in him.
Darby Bible Translation
Let therefore the persons of authority among you, says he, going down too, if there be anything in this man, accuse him.
