Acts 16:19-24 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

19 And the lords of her saw, that the hope of their winning went away, and they took Paul and Silas, and led into the market, either doom place, to the princes [catching Paul and Silas, they led them into the market, or doom place, to the princes].

20 And they brought them to the magistrates, and said, These men disturb our city [These men distrouble our city], for they be Jews,

21 and show a custom, which is not leaveful to us to receive [and show a custom, which it is not leaveful to us to receive], neither do, since we be Romans.

22 And the people and magistrates ran against them [And the people ran against them, and the magistrates], and when they had rent (to pieces) the coats of them, they commanded them to be beaten with rods.

23 And when they had given to them many wounds, they sent them into prison, and commanded to the keeper, that he should keep them diligently [commanding to the keeper, that he diligently should keep them].

24 And when he had taken such a precept, he put them into the inner prison [Which, when he had taken such a precept, sent them into the inner prison], and restrained the feet of them in a tree.

Acts 16:19-24 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

19 And when her master and mistress saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas and drew them into the marketplace to the authorities, 20 and brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men are troubling our city. They are Jews, and preach customs 21 that are not lawful for us to receive nor to observe, seeing we are Romans.

22 And the people ran on them, and the magistrates tore their clothes and ordered them to be beaten with rods. 23 And when they had beaten them sore, they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Which jailer, when he had received such direction, thrust them into the inner prison and made their feet fast in the stocks.

19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, 20 and brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, 21 and teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans. 22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them. 23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely: 24 who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
