John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 17:9

And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other,
&c.] That is, received satisfaction from them, by the defence which they made for themselves, and the apostles, by the account that they gave of them and of their doctrines; whereby it plainly appeared to the full satisfaction of the magistrates, that their principles had no tendency to move sedition, or to alter the form of their government, or to do anything detrimental to Caesar, as was suggested: the Syriac, and Arabic versions render it, "took sureties"; of them for their good behaviour, and that they would be forthcoming, whenever called for:

they let them go;
about their business, to their own houses, and company, and did not inflict any punishment upon them, or commit them to prison.
