Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 16:23-24.


Acts 16:24

_ _ made their feet fast in the stocks — an instrument of torture as well as confinement, made of wood bound with iron, with holes for the feet, which were stretched more or less apart according to the severity intended. (Origen at a later period, besides having his neck thrust into an iron collar, lay extended for many days with his feet apart in the rack). Though jailers were proverbially unfeeling, the manner in which the order was given in this case would seem to warrant all that was done.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 16:16-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 16:24

Secured their feet in the stocks — These were probably those large pieces of wood, in use among the Romans, which not only loaded the legs of the prisoner, but also kept them extended in a very painful manner.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 16:24

Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet (h) fast in the stocks.

(h) Because he wanted to be more sure that they did not escape, he set them fast in the stocks.
