The judges found both of them guilty and because of that, Paul and Silas were put in a jail. Both of them were chained to the wall. The guards were ordered to keep a watch on them. They were treated very badly in the jail.

At night, Paul and his follower started singing praises to the Lord. As they were singing, suddenly, the Earth started to tremble. The entire jail shook and the chains fell off from all the prisoners and prison gates were opened on their own.

The guards were very scared. They knew that if the prisoners escaped, they would be pinished. So, they took their sword and rushed inside. Paul called out their names and said to them, “Stop! Look, we are still here!” The guards looked at them and fell at their feet. The guards asked them what they could do for Paul and Silas to repent their sins. To this, Paul replied, “Believe in Jesus and everything will be fine!”
