    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 25:7

    The Jews - laid many and grievous complaints against Paul - As they must have perceived that the Roman governors would not intermeddle with questions of their law, etc., they no doubt invented some new charges, such as sedition, treason, etc., in order to render the mind of the governor evil affected towards Paul; but their malicious designs were defeated, for assertion would not go for proof before a Roman tribunal: this court required proof, and the blood-thirsty persecutors of the apostle could produce none.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 25:7

    Grievous complaints - Heavy accusations. Doubtless the same with which they had charged him before Felix, Acts 24:5-6. Compare Acts 25:19.

    Which they could not prove - Acts 24:13, Acts 24:19.

    Wesley's Notes on Acts 25:7

    25:7 Bringing many accusations - When many accusations are heaped together, frequently not one of them is true.
