25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them, 26 when suddenly there was such a violent shock of earthquake that the prison shook to its foundations. Instantly the doors all flew open, and the chains fell off from every prisoner. 27 Starting up from sleep and seeing the doors of the jail wide open, the jailer drew his sword and was on the point of killing himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped.

31 "Believe on the Lord Jesus," they replied, "and both you and your household will be saved." 32 And they told the Lord's Message to him as well as to all who were in his house. 33 Then he took them, even at that time of night, washed their wounds, and he and all his household were immediately baptized; 34 and bringing the Apostles up into his house, he spread a meal for them, and was filled with gladness, with his whole household, his faith resting on God.
