Hello, it's me again...

I read this Act 17:8

5But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason's house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.[c (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts%2017;&version=31;#fen-NIV-27516c)] 6But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some other brothers before the city officials, shouting: "These men who have caused trouble all over the world have now come here, 7and Jason has welcomed them into his house. They are all defying Caesar's decrees, saying that there is another king, one called Jesus." 8When they heard this, the crowd and the city officials were thrown into turmoil. 9Then they made Jason and the others post bond and let them go.

Now, what does "post bond" means??

One more question...

In Acts 18:18, what kind of vow was Paul talking about??

See here...

18Paul stayed on in Corinth for some time. Then he left the brothers and sailed for Syria, accompanied by Priscilla and Aquila. Before he sailed, he had his hair cut off at Cenchrea because of a vow he had taken.

Just wondering what kind of vow...

Any response to my questions would be appreciated greatly! =P

Thanks!

What translation are you using?

And taking security from Jason and from the rest, they let them go. (Act 17:9 NKJV)

And when they had taken securitie of Iason, and of the other, they let them goe. (Act 17:9, 1611 KJ)

Auzy,
The KJV has:
Act 17:6-9 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also; (7) Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus. (8) And they troubled the people and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things. (9) And when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.


Taken security means essentially "had enough".

Now, what does "post bond" means??

They had an illegal assembly (according to local laws) at Jason's house which they had to pay a fine for.

The vow is likely a modified form of the Nazarite vow (Num. 6:1-21). Taken in thanksgiving for being delivered from danger in Corinth, and with prayer for his trip to Jerusalem for Passover.

post bond... dear lord people it means that they posted bond (you know, like posting bail today to get out of jail?) wow that was a tough one to figure out... I am suprised the KJV actually was somewhat relevant here...since usually it's worthless, oh well. LONG LIVE THE ESV!
