Bible: Acts 4:13-20

4:13 When they saw the boldness 1  of Peter and John, and discovered 2  that they were uneducated 3  and ordinary 4  men, they were amazed and recognized these men had been with Jesus. 4:14 And because they saw the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say against this. 5  4:15 But when they had ordered them to go outside the council, 6  they began to confer with one another, 4:16 saying, “What should we do with these men? For it is plain 7  to all who live in Jerusalem that a notable miraculous sign 8  has come about through them, 9  and we cannot deny it. 4:17 But to keep this matter from spreading any further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more 10  to anyone in this name.” 4:18 And they called them in and ordered 11  them not to speak or teach at all in the name 12  of Jesus. 4:19 But Peter and John replied, 13 Whether it is right before God to obey 14  you rather than God, you decide, 4:20 for it is impossible 15  for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard.”
