Acts 23:12-15

Etheridge(i) 12 AND when it became morning, men of the Jihudoyee gathered and bound a vow [Cherem.] upon themselves, that they would not eat or drink till they had killed Paulos. 13 But there were of those who established by oath this compact more than forty men. 14 And they drew nigh to the priests and to the elders, and said, A vow we have vowed upon us, that nothing will we taste until we have killed Paulos. 15 And now do you and the princes of the synagogue request from the tribune to bring him to you, as if you sought to investigate more truly his work, and we are prepared to kill him while he shall come to you.
