(7) The Plot of the Jews
12 And when it became day, the aJews formed a 1bplot and 2put themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink until they had ckilled Paul.
13 And there were more than forty who swore to this conspiracy.
14 They came to the chief priests and the elders and said, 1We have bound ourselves with a curse to taste nothing until we kill Paul.
15 Now therefore you, with the Sanhedrin, notify the commander to bring him down to you, as though you were going to 1determine more accurately the things concerning him; and we, before he draws near, are ready to ado away with him.
