“But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.”
King James Version (KJV)
Ac 17:5 But the Jews. As usual, a part believed and the others were filled with hatred. Lewd fellows of the baser sort. "Vile fellows of the rabble" (Revised Version). The Jews called in the worst classes to aid them. Assaulted the house of Jason. Paul and Silas had abode there (Ac 17:7), but were not found, probably from having a warning.
