THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Acts (Author Luke)

16:26And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.

16:27And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

16:28But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

16:29Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

16:30And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

16:31And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

16:32And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

16:33And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

16:34And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

16:35And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, Let those men go.

16:36And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.

16:37But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.

16:38And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.

16:39And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city.
