“Following these instructions,
The jailor threw them
Into the innermost cell.
Their feet in the stocks.”
ὃς παραγγελίαν τοιαύτην λαβὼν ἔβαλεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν ἐσωτέραν φυλακὴν καὶ τοὺς πόδας ἠσφαλίσατο αὐτῶν εἰς τὸ ξύλον.
The author of Acts indicated that following these instructions (ὃς παραγγελίαν τοιαύτην λαβὼν), the jailer threw them (ἔβαλεν αὐτοὺς) into the innermost prison cell (εἰς τὴν ἐσωτέραν φυλακὴν). He fastened (ἠσφαλίσατο αὐτῶν) their feet (καὶ τοὺς πόδας) in the wooden stocks (εἰς τὸ ξύλον). This jailer followed the instructions of the magistrate. He threw Paul and Silas into the prison cell that was farthest from the prison gate. He even fastened their feet to the wooden stockades. They would be secure. Has anyone ever put chains on your feet?
