[ 110 ! 47. King Agrippa. When Agrippa was in a private station, he was accused by one of his servants of having spokem injuriously of Tiberins, the Roman Emperor, and was condemned by the Emperor to be exposed in chains before the palace gate. The weather was very hot, and Agrippa became excessively thirsty. Seeing a servant of Caligula pass by with a pitcher of water, he called to him and entreated leave to drink. The servant presented the pitcher with much courtesy ; and Agrippa having allayed his thirst, said to him, that if released from this captivity, he would not forget this glass of water. Tiberius dying, his successor Caligula soon after set Agrippa at liberty, and made him king of Judea. Having attained this high station, Agrippa was not unmindful of the glass of water given to him when a captive, but sent for the servant and made him controller of his household.
