Bible: Acts 16:22-26

16:22 The crowd joined the attack 1  against them, and the magistrates tore the clothes 2  off Paul and Silas 3  and ordered them to be beaten with rods. 4  16:23 After they had beaten them severely, 5  they threw them into prison and commanded 6  the jailer to guard them securely. 16:24 Receiving such orders, he threw them in the inner cell 7  and fastened their feet in the stocks. 8 

16:25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying 9  and singing hymns to God, 10  and the rest of 11  the prisoners were listening to them. 16:26 Suddenly a great earthquake occurred, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. Immediately all the doors flew open, and the bonds 12  of all the prisoners came loose.
