they were singing

     There was once a man who moved from one town to another. When he got to the new town, he asked someone what the people in the town were like. “What were the people like in your old town?” the person asked. “Terrible,” the man said. “Then,” said the other, “you will find the people in this town to be terrible, too.”

 “[Paul and Silas] were severely beaten, and then they were thrown into prison. . . .  Around midnight, they were . . . singing. . . .” Acts 16:23, 25
