Acts 23:12-15

MLV(i) 12 Now when it became day, some of the Jews made a conspiracy and they vowed for themselves, saying, they were neither to eat nor to drink until they should have killed Paul. 13 Now they were more-than forty who had made this gang; 14 who came to the high-priests and the elders and said, We have vowed to be accursed, to taste nothing until we should have killed Paul. 15 Therefore now, you, together with the council, disclose it to the commander that he should be led to you the next-day, as if being about to investigate more accurately the things concerning him. Now we are ready to assassinate him before he draws near.
