(1 Kings 12:11
). Variously administered. In no case were the stripes to exceed forty (Deuteronomy 25:3
; Compare 2 Corinthians 11:24
). In the time of the apostles, in consequence of the passing of what was called the Porcian law, no Roman citizen could be scourged in any case (Acts 16:22-37
). (See BASTINADO
.) In the scourging of our Lord ( Matthew 27:26
; Mark 15:15
) the words of prophecy (Isaiah 53:5
) were fulfilled.
