Acts 12:3

1. Now about that time, Herode the King stretched foorth his hands, to vexe certaine of the Church. 2. And he killed Iames the brother of Iohn with the sword. 3. And because he saw it pleased the Iewes, hee proceeded further, to take Peter also. (Then were the dayes of vnleauened bread.) 4. And when hee had apprehended him, hee put him in prison, and deliuered him to foure quaternions of souldiers to keepe him, intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. 5. Peter therefore was kept in prison, but prayer was made without ceasing of the Church vnto God for him. 6. And when Herode would haue brought him foorth, the same night Peter was sleeping betweene two Souldiers, bound with two chaines, and the Keepers before the doore kept the prison.
