Acts 16:25-34 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas worshipped, and praised God; and they that were in [the] keeping heard them.

26 And suddenly a great earth-moving was made, so that the foundaments of the prison were moved. And at once [And anon] all the doors were opened, and the bonds of all were loosed.

27 And the keeper of the prison was awaked, and saw the gates of the prison opened [and seeing the gates of the prison opened], and with a sword drawn out he would have slain himself, and guessed that the men that were bound had fled [weening the bound men to have fled].

28 But Paul cried with a great voice, and said [saying], Do thou no harm to thyself, for all we be here.

29 And he asked light, and entered [in], and trembled, and fell down to Paul and to Silas at their feet [and trembling he fell down to Paul and Silas at the feet].

30 And he brought them withoutforth, and said, Lords, what behooveth me to do, that I be made safe?

31 And they said, Believe thou in the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be safe, and thine house.

32 And they spake to him the word of the Lord, with all that were in his house.

33 And he took them in the same hour of the night, and washed their wounds. And he was baptized, and all his house at once [anon].

34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set to them a board. And he was glad with all his house, and believed to God [And he gladded with all his house, believing to God].

Acts 16:25-34 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

25 At midnight, Paul and Silas were praying and lauding God, and the prisoners heard them. 26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundation of the prison was shaken. And immediately all the doors opened, and every man’s bonds were loosed. 27 When the keeper of the prison awoke out of his sleep and saw the prison doors open, he drew out his sword and would have killed himself, supposing the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul called out with a loud voice, saying, Do yourself no harm, for we are all here!

29 Then he called for a light and rushed in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 and brought them out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, and your household. 32 And they preached the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. 33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their wounds, and was baptized with all who belonged to him straightaway. 34 When he had brought Paul and Silas into his house, he set food before them, and rejoiced that he with all his household believed on God.

Acts 16:25-34 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

25 [a]Now at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sung Psalms unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundation of the prison was shaken: and by and by all the doors opened, and every man’s bands were loosed.

27 [b]Then the keeper of the prison waked out of his sleep, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew out his sword and would have killed himself, supposing the prisoners had been fled.

28 [c]But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we all are here.

29 Then he called for a light, and leaped in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas.

30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31 And they said, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thine household.

32 And they preached unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in the house.

33 [d]Afterward he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes, and was baptized with all that belonged unto him straightway.

34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced that he with all his household believed in God.
