The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas.130
He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"231
They replied, "Believe3 in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved4--you and your household."532
Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house.
At that hour of the night6 the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized.734
The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he8 was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God--he and his whole family.
When it was daylight, the magistrates sent their officers to the jailer with the order: "Release those men."
The jailer9 told Paul, "The magistrates have ordered that you and Silas be released. Now you can leave. Go in peace."1037
But Paul said to the officers: "They beat us publicly without a trial, even though we are Roman citizens,11 and threw us into prison. And now do they want to get rid of us quietly? No! Let them come themselves and escort us out."
The officers reported this to the magistrates, and when they heard that Paul and Silas were Roman citizens, they were alarmed.1239
They came to appease them and escorted them from the prison, requesting them to leave the city.13
