Moffatt(i) 12 When day broke, the Jews formed a conspiracy, taking a solemn oath neither to eat nor to drink till they had killed Paul. 13 There were more than forty of them in this plot. 14 They then went to the high priests and elders, saying, "We have taken a solemn oath to taste no food till we have killed Paul. 15 Now you and the Sanhedrin must inform the commander that you propose to investigate this case in detail, so that he may have Paul brought down to you. We will be all ready to kill him on the way down."
