Washed their stripes (elousen apo twn plhgwn). Deissmann (Bible Studies, p. 227) cites an inscription of Pergamum with this very construction of apo and the ablative, to wash off, though it is an old verb. This first aorist active indicative of louw, to bathe, succinctly shows what the jailor did to remove the stains left by the rods of the lictors (verse Acts 16:22). Niptw was used for washing parts of the body.
And was baptized, he and all his, immediately (kai ebaptisqh autov kai oi autou apantev paraxrhma). The verb is in the singular agreeing with autov, but it is to be supplied with oi autou, and it was done at once.
