Tertullus wants the governor to hear his plea (Acts 24:4)

“To detain you no further,

I beg you

To hear us briefly

With your customary graciousness.”

ἵνα δὲ μὴ ἐπὶ πλεῖόν σε ἐνκόπτω, παρακαλῶ ἀκοῦσαί σε ἡμῶν συντόμως τῇ σῇ ἐπιεικείᾳ.

The author of Acts indicated that Tertullus did not want to detain him any further (ἵνα δὲ μὴ ἐπὶ πλεῖόν σε ἐνκόπτω).  He asked (παρακαλῶ) the governor (σε) to briefly (συντόμως) hear (ἀκοῦσαί) him (ἡμῶν) with his customary graciousness or kindness (τῇ σῇ ἐπιεικείᾳ).  Tertullus finished up his introduction to Felix, the Roman governor of Judea, by saying that he did not want to detain him any longer.  Thus, he asked Governor Felix to briefly listen to him with his normal kindness.  Is it better to be brief rather than long-winded?
