But (A)the Jews, becoming jealous and taking along some wicked men from the market place, formed a mob and set the city in an uproar; and attacking the house of (B)Jason, they were seeking to bring them out to the people. When they did not find them, they began (C)dragging Jason and some brethren before the city authorities, shouting, “These men who have upset [a](D)the world have come here also; [b]and Jason (E)has welcomed them, and they all act (F)contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus.” They stirred up the crowd and the city authorities who heard these things. And when they had received a [c]pledge from (G)Jason and the others, they released them.
