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.
