Bible: Acts 12:20-24

12:20 Now Herod 1  was having an angry quarrel 2  with the people of Tyre 3  and Sidon. 4  So they joined together 5  and presented themselves before him. And after convincing 6  Blastus, the king’s personal assistant, 7  to help them, 8  they asked for peace, 9  because their country’s food supply was provided by the king’s country. 12:21 On a day determined in advance, Herod 10  put on his royal robes, 11  sat down on the judgment seat, 12  and made a speech 13  to them. 12:22 But the crowd 14  began to shout, 15 The voice of a god, 16  and not of a man! 12:23 Immediately an angel of the Lord 17  struck 18  Herod 19  down because he did not give the glory to God, and he was eaten by worms and died. 20  12:24 But the word of God 21  kept on increasing 22  and multiplying.
