Acts 4:3

In ward (ei thrhsin). Probably in one of the chambers of the temple. In safe keeping (from threw, to guard). Old word, in the N.T. only here and Acts 5:18 ; 1 Corinthians 7:19 . So in papyri. Now eventide (espera hdh). Hence no trial could take place before the next day, a regulation violated in the case of Jesus.
