Bible: Acts 12:18-23

12:18 At daybreak 1  there was great consternation 2  among the soldiers over what had become of Peter. 12:19 When Herod 3  had searched 4  for him and did not find him, he questioned 5  the guards and commanded that they be led away to execution. 6  Then 7  Herod 8  went down from Judea to Caesarea 9  and stayed there.

12:20 Now Herod 10  was having an angry quarrel 11  with the people of Tyre 12  and Sidon. 13  So they joined together 14  and presented themselves before him. And after convincing 15  Blastus, the king’s personal assistant, 16  to help them, 17  they asked for peace, 18  because their country’s food supply was provided by the king’s country. 12:21 On a day determined in advance, Herod 19  put on his royal robes, 20  sat down on the judgment seat, 21  and made a speech 22  to them. 12:22 But the crowd 23  began to shout, 24 The voice of a god, 25  and not of a man! 12:23 Immediately an angel of the Lord 26  struck 27  Herod 28  down because he did not give the glory to God, and he was eaten by worms and died. 29
