Bible: Acts 26:9-11
26:9 Of course, 1 I myself was convinced 2 that it was necessary to do many things hostile to the name of Jesus the Nazarene. 26:10 And that is what I did in Jerusalem: Not only did I lock up many of the saints in prisons by the authority I received 3 from the chief priests, but I also cast my vote 4 against them when they were sentenced to death. 5 26:11 I punished 6 them often in all the synagogues 7 and tried to force 8 them to blaspheme. Because I was so furiously enraged 9 at them, I went to persecute 10 them even in foreign cities.
