RKJNT(i) 33 When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and wanted to kill them. 34 But then there stood up in the council a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who had a good reputation among all the people, and he commanded that the apostles be put outside for a while; 35 And he said to them, You men of Israel, take care what you intend to do about these men. 36 For before these days Theudas rose up, who boasted of being somebody; and a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves to him. He was slain; and all those who followed him were scattered, and brought to nothing. 37 After this man, Judas of Galilee rose up in the days of the census, and drew away many people after him: he also perished; and all those who followed him were dispersed. 38 And now I say to you, Stay away from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work is from men, it will come to nothing: 39 But if it is from God, you cannot overthrow it; you might even be found fighting against God. 40 And they agreed with him: and when they had called in the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. 42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease to teach and preach Jesus as the Christ.
