“Who hauing receiued such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, & made their feet fast in the stockes.”
King James Version (KJV)
21. And teach customes which are not lawfull for vs to receiue, neither to obserue, being Romanes. 22. And the multitude rose vp together against them, and the Magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beate them. 23. And when they had layed many stripes vpon them, they cast them into prison, charging the Iaylour to keepe them safely. 24. Who hauing receiued such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, & made their feet fast in the stockes. 25. ¶ And at midnight, Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises vnto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doores were opened, and euery ones bands were loosed. 27. And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleepe, and seeing the prison doores open, he drew out his sword, and would haue killed himselfe, supposing that the prisoners had beene fled.
