Acts 28:1 - 10
When Paul had got some sticks together and put them on the fire, a snake came out, because of the heat,
and gave him a bite on the hand. And when the people saw it hanging on his hand, they said to one
another, Without doubt this man has put someone to death, and though he has got safely away from the
sea, God will not let him go on living. But shaking off the beast into the fire, he got no damage. But they
had the idea that they would see him becoming ill, or suddenly falling down dead; but after waiting a long
time, and seeing that no damage came to him, changing their opinion, they said he was a god.
