Acts 16:29-39 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
29 The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas.1 30 He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"2 31 They replied, "Believe3 in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved4--you and your household."5 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 33 At that hour of the night6 the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized.7 34 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. 35 When it was daylight, the magistrates sent their officers to the jailer with the order: "Release those men." 36 The jailer9 told Paul, "The magistrates have ordered that you and Silas be released. Now you can leave. Go in peace."10 37 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." 38 The officers reported this to the magistrates, and when they heard that Paul and Silas were Roman citizens, they were alarmed.12 39 They came to appease them and escorted them from the prison, requesting them to leave the city.13
