Bible: Acts 16:37-39
16:37 But Paul said to the police officers, 1 “They had us beaten in public 2 without a proper trial 3 – even though we are Roman citizens 4 – and they threw us 5 in prison. And now they want to send us away 6 secretly? Absolutely not! They 7 themselves must come and escort us out!” 8 16:38 The police officers reported these words to the magistrates. They were frightened when they heard Paul and Silas 9 were Roman citizens 10 16:39 and came 11 and apologized to them. After 12 they brought them out, they asked them repeatedly 13 to leave the city.
