Acts 16:16-24 [ Verse 23 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
16 It happened that as we were going to the R977 place of prayer, a slave-girl having a R978 spirit of divination met us, who was bringing her masters much profit by fortune-telling. 17 Following after Paul and us, she kept crying out, saying, "These men are bond-servants of the R979 Most High God, who are proclaiming to you the F380 way of salvation." 18 She continued doing this for many days. But Paul was greatly annoyed, and turned and said to the spirit, "I command you in R980 the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!" And it came out at that very moment. F381 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit R981 was gone, F382 they seized Paul R982 and Silas and dragged R983 them into the market place before the authorities, 20 and when they had brought them to the chief magistrates, they said, "These men are throwing our city into confusion, being Jews, 21 and are R984 proclaiming customs which it is not lawful for us to accept or to observe, being Romans." R985 22 The crowd rose up together against them, and the chief magistrates tore their robes F383 off them and proceeded to order them F384 to be beaten R986 with rods. 23 When they had struck them with many blows, they threw them into prison, commanding the R987 jailer to guard them securely; 24 and F385 he, having received such a command, threw them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the R988 stocks. F386
