Acts 5:41 New Living Translation (NLT)

41 The apostles left the high council rejoicing that God had counted them worthy to suffer disgrace for the name of Jesus.

The apostles were just whipped and they were happy about it.  They did the right thing no matter what the immediate outcome was.

Earlier in Chapter 5, the apostles had been arrested, but an angel of the Lord had busted them out of jail.  The men then went to the Temple and were teaching the Word when they were apprehended again, which led to the flogging they received as recorded in Acts 5:41.
