Herod Kills James and Imprisons Peter

1 Now at that time, Herod the king laid hands on some of those from the church to harm [them].a 2 So he executed James the brother of John with a sword. 3 And [when he]b saw that it was pleasing to the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. ({Now this was during the feast}c of Unleavened Bread.) 4 [After he]d had arrested {him},e he also put [him]f in prison, handing [him]g over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending to bring him {out for public trial}h after the Passover. 5 Thus Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer was fervently being made to God by the church for him.
