YLT 1 And about that time, Herod the king put forth his hands, to do evil to certain of those of the assembly, NIV 1 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. YLT 2 and he killed James, the brother of John, with the sword, NIV 2 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. YLT 3 and having seen that it is pleasing to the Jews, he added to lay hold of Peter also -- and they were the days of the unleavened food -- NIV 3 When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. YLT 4 whom also having seized, he did put in prison, having delivered [him] to four quaternions of soldiers to guard him, intending after the passover to bring him forth to the people. NIV 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. YLT 5 Peter, therefore, indeed, was kept in the prison, and fervent prayer was being made by the assembly unto God for him, NIV 5 So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. YLT 6 and when Herod was about to bring him forth, the same night was Peter sleeping between two soldiers, having been bound with two chains, guards also before the door were keeping the prison, NIV 6 The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance. YLT 7 and lo, a messenger of the Lord stood by, and a light shone in the buildings, and having smitten Peter on the side, he raised him up, saying, `Rise in haste,' and his chains fell from off [his] hands. NIV 7 Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. "Quick, get up!" he said, and the chains fell off Peter's wrists. YLT 8 The messenger also said to him, `Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals;' and he did so; and he saith to him, `Put thy garment round and be following me;' NIV 8 Then the angel said to him, "Put on your clothes and sandals." And Peter did so. "Wrap your cloak around you and follow me," the angel told him. YLT 9 and having gone forth, he was following him, and he knew not that it is true that which is done through the messenger, and was thinking he saw a vision, NIV 9 Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. YLT 10 and having passed through a first ward, and a second, they came unto the iron gate that is leading to the city, which of its own accord did open to them, and having gone forth, they went on through one street, and immediately the messenger departed from him. NIV 10 They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left him. YLT 11 And Peter having come to himself, said, `Now I have known of a truth that the Lord did sent forth His messenger, and did deliver me out of the hand of Herod, and all the expectation of the people of the Jews;' NIV 11 Then Peter came to himself and said, "Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent his angel and rescued me from Herod's clutches and from everything the Jewish people were anticipating." YLT 12 also, having considered, he came unto the house of Mary, the mother of John, who is surnamed Mark, where there were many thronged together and praying. NIV 12 When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John, also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying. YLT 13 And Peter having knocked at the door of the porch, there came a damsel to hearken, by name Rhoda, NIV 13 Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer the door. YLT 14 and having known the voice of Peter, from the joy she did not open the porch, but having run in, told of the standing of Peter before the porch, NIV 14 When she recognized Peter's voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed, "Peter is at the door!" YLT 15 and they said unto her, `Thou art mad;' and she was confidently affirming [it] to be so, and they said, `It is his messenger;' NIV 15 "You're out of your mind," they told her. When she kept insisting that it was so, they said, "It must be his angel." YLT 16 and Peter was continuing knocking, and having opened, they saw him, and were astonished, NIV 16 But Peter kept on knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astonished. YLT 17 and having beckoned to them with the hand to be silent, he declared to them how the Lord brought him out of the prison, and he said, `Declare to James and to the brethren these things;' and having gone forth, he went on to another place. NIV 17 Peter motioned with his hand for them to be quiet and described how the Lord had brought him out of prison. "Tell James and the brothers about this," he said, and then he left for another place. YLT 18 And day having come, there was not a little stir among the soldiers what then was become of Peter, NIV 18 In the morning, there was no small commotion among the soldiers as to what had become of Peter. YLT 19 and Herod having sought for him, and not having found, having examined the guards, did command [them] to be led away to punishment, and having gone down from Judea to Cesarea, he was abiding [there]. NIV 19 After Herod had a thorough search made for him and did not find him, he cross-examined the guards and ordered that they be executed. Then Herod went from Judea to Caesarea and stayed there a while. YLT 20 And Herod was highly displeased with the Tyrians and Sidonians, and with one accord they came unto him, and having made a friend of Blastus, who [is] over the bed-chambers of the king, they were asking peace, because of their country being nourished from the king's; NIV 20 He had been quarreling with the people of Tyre and Sidon; they now joined together and sought an audience with him. Having secured the support of Blastus, a trusted personal servant of the king, they asked for peace, because they depended on the king's country for their food supply. YLT 21 and on a set day, Herod having arrayed himself in kingly apparel, and having sat down upon the tribunal, was making an oration unto them, NIV 21 On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people. YLT 22 and the populace were shouting, `The voice of a god, and not of a man;' NIV 22 They shouted, "This is the voice of a god, not of a man." YLT 23 and presently there smote him a messenger of the Lord, because he did not give the glory to God, and having been eaten of worms, he expired. NIV 23 Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died. YLT 24 And the word of God did grow and did multiply, NIV 24 But the word of God continued to increase and spread. YLT 25 and Barnabas and Saul did turn back out of Jerusalem, having fulfilled the ministration, having taken also with [them] John, who was surnamed Mark. NIV 25 When Barnabas and Saul had finished their mission, they returned from Jerusalem, taking with them John, also called Mark.
