“And when it was day, some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul. Now there were more than forty who had formed this conspiracy. They came to the chief priests and elders, and said, “We have bound ourselves under a great oath that we will eat nothing until we have killed Paul. Now you, therefore, together with the council, suggest to the commander that he be brought down to you tomorrow, as though you were going to make further inquiries concerning him; but we are ready to kill him before he comes near.” Acts 23:12-15
If they were completely devoted to this oath and seeing as they did not kill Paul – I guess these guys starved to death… though I doubt it.
How long did they go before someone caved and ate something: 1 day, 1 week?
How long before they gave up all together?
The world is full of detractors full of hot air.
Trust in the Lord. He has our back.
