Attacked by a Mob in Thessalonica

1 Now [after they]a traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. 2 {And as was his custom},b Paul went in to them and on three Sabbath [days] he discussed with them from the scriptures, 3 explaining and demonstrating that it was necessary [for] the Christc to suffer and to rise from the dead, and [saying], "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."d 4 And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, and [also] a large number of God-fearing Greeks and not a few of the prominent women. 5 But the Jews were filled with jealousy and, taking along some worthless men from the rabble in the marketplace and forming a mob, threw the city into an uproar. And attacking Jason's house, they were looking for them to bring [them]e out to the popular assembly. 6 And [when they]f did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brothers before the city officials, shouting, "These [people] who have stirred up trouble [throughout] the worldg have come here also, 7 whom Jason has entertained as guests! And these [people] [are] all acting contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying there is another king, Jesus!" 8 And they threw the crowd into confusion, and the city officials who heard these [things]. 9 And [after]h taking money as security from Jason and the rest, they released them.
