    And I persecuted - Acts 8:3.

    This way - Those who were of this mode of worshipping God; that is, Christians. See the notes on Acts 9:2.

    Unto the death - Intending to put them to death. He did not probably put any to death himself, but he committed them to prison; he sought their lives; he was the agent employed in arresting them; and when they were put to death, he tells us that he gave his voice against them Acts 26:10; that is, he joined in, and approved of their condemnation.

    Delivering into prisons ... - Acts 8:3.
