Bible Commentary for Acts 16:23

Wesley's Notes for Acts 16:23


16:23 They laid many stripes upon them - Either they did not immediately say they were Romans, or in the tumult it was not regarded. Charging the jailer - Perhaps rather to quiet the people than because they thought them criminal.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 16:23


Ac 16:23 Laid many stripes upon them. Moses mercifully restricted the number of stripes (De 25:3); hence, Paul says: "Five times I received of the Jews forty stripes, save one" (2Co 11:24). With the Romans there was no such restriction.
