30 He brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"
31 They replied, "Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with your entire household."
32 Then they shared the word of the Lord with him and all who lived in his household.
33 That same hour the jailer washed their wounds, and he and everyone in his household were immediately baptized.
34 Then he brought them into his house and set a meal before them. He and his entire household rejoiced because they all believed in God.
35 The next morning the city officials sent the police to tell the jailer, "Let those men go!"
36 So the jailer told Paul, "You and Silas are free to leave. Go in peace."
37 But Paul replied, "They have publicly beaten us without trial and jailed us--and we are Roman citizens. So now they want us to leave secretly? Certainly not! Let them come themselves to release us!"
38 When the police made their report, the city officials were alarmed to learn that Paul and Silas were Roman citizens.
39 They came to the jail and apologized to them. Then they brought them out and begged them to leave the city.
40 Paul and Silas then returned to the home of Lydia, where they met with the believers and encouraged them once more before leaving town.
