Bible: Acts 23:12-15

The Plot to Kill Paul

23:12 When morning came, 1  the Jews formed 2  a conspiracy 3  and bound themselves with an oath 4  not to eat or drink anything 5  until they had killed Paul. 23:13 There were more than forty of them who formed this conspiracy. 6  23:14 They 7  went 8  to the chief priests 9  and the elders and said, “We have bound ourselves with a solemn oath 10  not to partake 11  of anything until we have killed Paul. 23:15 So now you and the council 12  request the commanding officer 13  to bring him down to you, as if you were going to determine 14  his case 15  by conducting a more thorough inquiry. 16  We are ready to kill him 17  before he comes near this place.” 18
