Bible: Acts 17:5-10

17:5 But the Jews became jealous, 1  and gathering together some worthless men from the rabble in the marketplace, 2  they formed a mob 3  and set the city in an uproar. 4  They attacked Jason’s house, 5  trying to find Paul and Silas 6  to bring them out to the assembly. 7  17:6 When they did not find them, they dragged 8  Jason and some of the brothers before the city officials, 9  screaming, “These people who have stirred up trouble 10  throughout the world 11  have come here too, 17:7 and 12  Jason has welcomed them as guests! They 13  are all acting against Caesar’s 14  decrees, saying there is another king named 15  Jesus! 16  17:8 They caused confusion among 17  the crowd and the city officials 18  who heard these things. 17:9 After 19  the city officials 20  had received bail 21  from Jason and the others, they released them.
