“But Paul shouted
In a loud voice.
‘Do not harm yourself!
We are all here!’”
ἐφώνησεν δὲ Παῦλος μεγάλῃ φωνῇ λέγων Μηδὲν πράξῃς σεαυτῷ κακόν, ἅπαντες γάρ ἐσμεν ἐνθάδε.
The author of Acts indicated that Paul (δὲ Παῦλος) shouted (ἐφώνησεν) in a loud voice (μεγάλῃ φωνῇ) saying (λέγων) that he should not harm himself (Μηδὲν πράξῃς σεαυτῷ κακόν). He said that they were all there (ἅπαντες γάρ ἐσμεν ἐνθάδε). Instead of escaping, Paul and Silas remained in prison. Thus, Paul shouted out in a loud voice to the jailer that they were all there still in the prison. He should not worry and not harm or kill himself. Paul and Silas made no attempt to escape, despite the opportunity to do so. Would you stay in jail if you had the opportunity to escape?
