Acts 23:12-15

Lamsa(i) 12 And when it was morning, certain of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under oath, that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. 13 And those who had sworn to this conspiracy were more than forty persons. 14 And they went to the priests and elders, and said, We have bound ourselves under an oath, not to taste anything till we have killed Paul. 15 Now you and the leaders of the council ask the captain to bring him to you, as though you were desirous to have a thorough investigation of his acts, and we are ready to kill him before he shall arrive here.
