137 – Marchons avec Dieu par sa grâce / Part III

20 And they brought them to the magistrates, and said, “These men, being Jews, exceedingly trouble our city; 21 and they teach customs which are not lawful for us, being Romans, to receive or observe.” 22 Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. 23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.

The Philippian Jailer Saved
25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. 27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. 28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”

29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke 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 stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. 34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.

Actes 16: 20 Ils les présentèrent aux préteurs, en disant: Ces hommes troublent notre ville;
21 ce sont des Juifs, qui annoncent des coutumes qu’il ne nous est permis ni de recevoir ni de suivre, à nous qui sommes Romains.
22 La foule se souleva aussi contre eux, et les préteurs, ayant fait arracher leurs vêtements, ordonnèrent qu’on les battît de verges.
23 Après qu’on les eut chargés de coups, ils les jetèrent en prison, en recommandant au geôlier de les garder sûrement.
24 Le geôlier, ayant reçu cet ordre, les jeta dans la prison intérieure, et leur mit les ceps aux pieds.
25 Vers le milieu de la nuit, Paul et Silas priaient et chantaient les louanges de Dieu, et les prisonniers les entendaient.
26 Tout à coup il se fit un grand tremblement de terre, en sorte que les fondements de la prison furent ébranlés; au même instant, toutes les portes s’ouvrirent, et les liens de tous les prisonniers furent rompus.
27 Le geôlier se réveilla, et, lorsqu’il vit les portes de la prison ouvertes, il tira son épée et allait se tuer, pensant que les prisonniers s’étaient enfuis.
28 Mais Paul cria d’une voix forte: Ne te fais point de mal, nous sommes tous ici.
29 Alors le geôlier, ayant demandé de la lumière, entra précipitamment, et se jeta tout tremblant aux pieds de Paul et de Silas;
30 il les fit sortir, et dit: Seigneurs, que faut-il que je fasse pour être sauvé?
31 Paul et Silas répondirent: Crois au Seigneur Jésus, et tu seras sauvé, toi et ta famille.
32 Et ils lui annoncèrent la parole du Seigneur, ainsi qu’à tous ceux qui étaient dans sa maison.
33 Il les prit avec lui, à cette heure même de la nuit, il lava leurs plaies, et aussitôt il fut baptisé, lui et tous les siens.
