Acts 23:12-15

ABU(i) 12 And when it was day, the Jews banded together, and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. 13 And they were more than forty who made this conspiracy. 14 And they came to the chief priests and the elders, and said: We bound ourselves under a great curse, to taste nothing until we have slain Paul. 15 Now therefore do ye, with the council, signify to the chief captain that he bring him down to you, as though ye would ascertain more exactly the matters concerning him; and we, before he comes near, are ready to kill him.
