Acts 23:12-15

Riverside(i) 12 When it was day, the Jews made a conspiracy and bound themselves by an oath not to eat or drink until they had killed Paul. 13 There were more than forty who had taken this oath. 14 They came to the high priests and elders and said, "We have bound ourselves by an oath to taste nothing until we have killed Paul. 15 Now therefore you and the Council must ask the Tribune to bring him down to you, as if you were going to inquire more exactly about him, and we, before he comes near, will be ready to put him out of the way."
