But the Jews became jealous, and when they had brought together some scoundrels from the marketplace and formed a mob, they set the city in an uproar. Attacking Jason's house, they searched for them to bring them out to the public assembly.
When they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city officials, shouting, "These men who have turned the world upside down have come here too,
and Jason has received them as guests! They are all acting contrary to Caesar's decrees, saying that there is another king-Jesus!"
The Jews stirred up the crowd and the city officials who heard these things.
So taking a security bond from Jason and the others, they released them.
As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas off to Beroea. On arrival, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.
