33 When they heard that, they were cut hto the heart, and itook counsel to slay them. 34 Then stood there up one in jthe council, a Pharisee, named kGamaliel, la doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; 35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, mtake heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men. 36 For *before these days rose up Theudas, nboasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as ||obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. 37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of othe taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as ||obeyed him, were dispersed. 38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: pfor if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even qto fight against God. 40 And to him they agreed: and when they had rcalled the apostles, and sbeaten them, they rcommanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. 41 And they departed from the presence of jthe council, trejoicing that they were ucounted worthy to suffer shame for his name.
