lı̄´sens : This word is not found at all in the Revised Version (British and American) (except in Judith 11:14 ; Sirach 15:20 ; 1 Maccabees 1:13 ), and twice only in the King James Version (except in 2 Maccabees 4:9 ), both times in Acts. In Acts 21:40 (as translation of ἐπιτρέπω , epitrépō ) the American Standard Revised Version has "leave" where the King James Version has "licence." In Acts 25:16 , "opportunity to make his defense" (as translation of τόπον a �πολογίας , tópon apologı́as ) takes the place of "have licence to answer for himself."
