Bible: Acts 16:20-24

16:20 When 1  they had brought them 2  before the magistrates, they said, “These men are throwing our city into confusion. 3  They are 4  Jews 16:21 and are advocating 5  customs that are not lawful for us to accept 6  or practice, 7  since we are 8  Romans.”

16:22 The crowd joined the attack 9  against them, and the magistrates tore the clothes 10  off Paul and Silas 11  and ordered them to be beaten with rods. 12  16:23 After they had beaten them severely, 13  they threw them into prison and commanded 14  the jailer to guard them securely. 16:24 Receiving such orders, he threw them in the inner cell 15  and fastened their feet in the stocks. 16
