Acts 23:12-15

Williams(i) 12 After day had dawned, the Jews formed a conspiracy and took an oath not to eat or drink till they had killed Paul. 13 There were more than forty of them who formed this conspiracy. 14 They went to the high priests and elders and said to them, "We have taken a solemn oath not to taste a morsel till we have killed Paul. 15 So you and the council must now notify the colonel to bring him down to you, as though you were going to look into his case more carefully, but before he gets down we will be ready to kill him."
