Acts 16:27

കരാഗൃഹ പ്രമാണി ഉറക്കുണർന്നു കാരാഗൃഹത്തിന്റെ വാതിലുകൾ ഉറന്നിരിക്കുന്നതു കണ്ടിട്ടു ചങ്ങലക്കാർ ഔടിപ്പോയ്ക്കളഞ്ഞു. എന്നു ഊഹിച്ചു വാളൂരി തന്നെത്താൻ കൊല്ലുവാൻ ഭാവിച്ചു.

For they do not sleep unless they have done evil; And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall.

അവർ ദോഷം ചെയ്തിട്ടല്ലാതെ ഉറങ്ങുകയില്ല; വല്ലവരെയും വീഴിച്ചിട്ടല്ലാതെ അവർക്കും ഉറക്കം വരികയില്ല.
