So much that they brought forth the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks and those who were tormented with unclean spirits, and they were healed every one.
Then the prince of the priests rose up, and all those that were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees) were filled with jealousy
and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison.
But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors and brought them forth and said,
Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning and taught. In the meantime, the prince of the priests came, and those that were with him, and called the council together and all the elders of the sons of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.
But when the officers came and found them not in the prison, they returned and told,
saying, We certainly found the prison shut with all security and the keepers standing outside before the doors, but when we had opened, we found no one within.
Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the princes of the priests heard these things, they were perplexed regarding what this would come to.
Then someone came and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people.
