But the Jews, being moved with jealousy, took unto them certain vile fellows of the rabble, and gathering a crowd, set the city on an uproar; and assaulting the house of Jason, they sought to bring them forth to the people.
And when they found them not, they dragged Jason and certain brethren before the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
whom Jason hath received: and these all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, (one) Jesus.
And they troubled the multitude and the rulers of the city, when they heard these things.

I beseech you therefore, be ye imitators of me.
Be ye imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.

For ye, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judaea in Christ Jesus: for ye also suffered the same things of your own countrymen, even as they did of the Jews;
Therefore he that rejecteth, rejecteth not man, but God, who giveth his Holy Spirit unto you.
For yourselves know how ye ought to imitate us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
not because we have not the right, but to make ourselves and ensample unto you, that ye should imitate us.
