Then I testified against them
Against their continuance there, and threatened them, and called heaven and earth to witness what he would do to them, if they did not depart:
why lodge ye about the wall?
of the city, waiting an opportunity to get in, and tempting the Jews to come out and buy their ware:
if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you;
beat them, or slay them, at least imprison them:
from that time forth came they no more on the
finding there was no likelihood of getting into the city, and that they were liable to be taken up and punished.
