There was a certainG5100 manG435 in CaesareaG2542 calledG3686 Cornelius,G2883 a centurionG1543 of the bandG4686 calledG2564 the ItalianG2483 band,G4686
A devoutG2152 man, and one that fearedG5399 GodG2316 with allG3956 his house,G3624 which gaveG4160 muchG4183 almsG1654 to the people,G2992 and prayedG1189 to GodG2316 always.G1275
He sawG1492 in a visionG3705 evidentlyG5320 aboutG5616 the ninthG1766 hourG5610 of the dayG2250 an angelG32 of GodG2316 comingG1525 in to him, and sayingG2036 to him, Cornelius.G2883
And when he lookedG816 on him, he was afraid,G1719 and said,G2036 WhatG5101 is it, Lord?G2962 And he saidG2036 to him, Your prayersG4335 and yourG3588 almsG1654 are comeG305 up for a memorialG3422 beforeG1799 God.G2316
And nowG3568 sendG3992 menG435 to Joppa,G2445 and callG3343 for one Simon,G4613 whoseG3739 surnameG1941 is Peter:G4074
He lodgesG3579 with oneG5100 SimonG4613 a tanner,G1038 whoseG3739 houseG3614 is by the seaG2281 side:G3844 he shall tellG2980 you whatG5101 you oughtG1163 to do.G4160
And whenG5613 the angelG32 whichG3588 spokeG2980 to CorneliusG2883 was departed,G565 he calledG5455 twoG1417 of his householdG3610 servants, and a devoutG2152 soldierG4757 of them that waitedG4342 onG4342 him continually;G4342
And when he had declaredG1834 allG537 these things to them, he sentG649 them to Joppa.G2445
On the morrow,G1887 as they wentG3596 on their journey,G3596 and drew nearG1448 to the city,G4172 PeterG4074 wentG305 up on the housetopG1430 to prayG4336 aboutG4012 the sixthG1623 hour:G5610
And he becameG1096 veryG4361 hungry,G4361 and wouldG2309 have eaten:G1089 but while they madeG3903 ready,G3903 he fellG1968 intoG1909 a trance,G1611
And sawG2334 heavenG3772 opened,G455 and a certainG5100 vesselG4632 descendingG2597 on him, as it had been a greatG3173 sheetG3607 knitG1210 at the fourG5064 corners,G746 and letG2524 downG2524 to the earth:G1093
WhereinG1722 G3757 were allG3956 mannerG1485 of four footedG5074 beastsG5074 of the earth,G1093 and wildG2342 beasts,G2342 and creepingG2062 things, and fowlsG4071 of the air.G3772
And there cameG1096 a voiceG5456 to him, Rise,G450 Peter;G4074 kill,G2380 and eat.G5315
But PeterG4074 said,G2036 Not so,G3365 Lord;G2962 for I have neverG3763 eatenG5315 anyG3956 thing that is commonG2839 orG2228 unclean.G169
And the voiceG5456 spoke to him againG3825 the secondG1208 time, WhatG3739 GodG2316 has cleansed,G2511 that callG2840 not you common.G2840
ThisG5124 was doneG1096 thrice:G5151 and the vesselG4632 was receivedG353 up againG3825 intoG1519 heaven.G3772
NowG1161 whileG5613 PeterG4074 doubtedG1280 in himselfG1438 whatG5101 thisG3588 visionG3705 whichG3739 he had seenG1492 should mean,G1498 behold,G2400 the menG435 whichG3588 were sentG649 from CorneliusG2883 had madeG1239 enquiryG1331 for Simon'sG4613 house,G3614 and stoodG2186 beforeG1909 the gate,G4440
And called,G5455 and askedG4441 whetherG1487 Simon,G4613 whichG3588 was surnamedG1941 Peter,G4074 were lodgedG3579 there.G1759
While PeterG4074 thoughtG1760 onG4012 the vision,G3705 the SpiritG4151 saidG2036 to him, Behold,G2400 threeG5140 menG435 seekG2212 you.
AriseG450 therefore,G235 and getG2597 you down,G2597 and goG4198 with them, doubtingG1252 nothing:G3367 for I have sentG649 them.
ThenG1161 PeterG4074 wentG2597 downG2597 to the menG435 whichG3588 were sentG649 to him from Cornelius;G2883 and said,G2036 Behold,G2400 I amG1510 he whomG3739 you seek:G2212 whatG5101 is the causeG156 whyG1223 G3739 you are come?G3918
And they said,G2036 CorneliusG2883 the centurion,G1543 a justG1342 man,G435 and one that fearsG5399 God,G2316 and of goodG18 reportG3140 amongG5259 allG3650 the nationG1484 of the Jews,G2453 was warnedG5537 from God by an holyG40 angelG32 to sendG3343 for you intoG1519 his house,G3624 and to hearG191 wordsG4487 of you.
ThenG3767 calledG1528 he them in, and lodgedG3579 them. And on the morrowG1887 PeterG4074 wentG1831 awayG1831 with them, and certainG5100 brothersG80 from JoppaG2445 accompaniedG4905 him.
And the morrowG1887 afterG3326 they enteredG1525 intoG1519 Caesarea.G2542 And CorneliusG2883 waitedG4328 for them, and he had calledG4779 togetherG4779 his kinsmenG4773 and nearG316 friends.G5384
And as PeterG4074 was comingG1525 in, CorneliusG2883 metG4876 him, and fellG4098 down atG1909 his feet,G4228 and worshippedG4352 him.
But PeterG4074 tookG1453 him up, saying,G3004 StandG450 up; I myself alsoG2504 amG1510 a man.G444
And as he talkedG4926 with him, he wentG1525 in, and foundG2147 manyG4183 that were comeG4905 together.G4905
And he saidG5346 to them, You knowG1987 howG5613 that it is an unlawfulG111 thing for a manG435 that is a JewG2453 to keepG2853 company,G2853 orG2228 comeG4334 to one of anotherG246 nation;G246 but GodG2316 has showedG1166 me that I should not callG3004 anyG3367 manG444 commonG2839 orG2228 unclean.G169
ThereforeG1352 cameG2064 I to you withoutG369 gainsaying,G369 as soon as I was sentG3343 for: I askG4441 thereforeG3767 for whatG5101 intentG3056 you have sentG3343 for me?
And CorneliusG2883 said,G5346 FourG5067 daysG2250 agoG575 I was fastingG3522 untilG3360 thisG5026 hour;G5610 and at the ninthG1766 hourG5610 I prayedG4336 in my house,G3624 and, behold,G2400 a manG435 stoodG2476 beforeG1799 me in brightG2986 clothing,G2066
And said,G5346 Cornelius,G2883 your prayerG4335 is heard,G1522 and yourG4675 almsG1654 are had in remembranceG3415 in the sightG1799 of God.G2316
SendG3992 thereforeG3767 to Joppa,G2445 and callG3333 hereG3333 Simon,G4613 whoseG3739 surnameG1941 is Peter;G4074 he is lodgedG3579 in the houseG3614 of one SimonG4613 a tannerG1038 by the seaG2281 side:G3844 who,G3739 when he comes,G3854 shall speakG2980 to you.
ImmediatelyG1824 thereforeG3767 I sentG3992 to you; and you have wellG2573 doneG4160 that you are come.G3854 NowG3568 thereforeG3767 are we allG3956 hereG3918 presentG3918 beforeG1799 God,G2316 to hearG191 allG3956 things that are commandedG4367 you of God.G2316
ThenG1161 PeterG4074 openedG455 his mouth,G4750 and said,G2036 Of a truthG225 I perceiveG2638 that GodG2316 is noG3756 respecterG4381 of persons:G4381
But in everyG3956 nationG1484 he that fearsG5399 him, and worksG2038 righteousness,G1343 is acceptedG1184 with him.
The wordG3056 whichG3739 God sentG649 to the childrenG5207 of Israel,G2474 preachingG2097 peaceG1515 by JesusG2424 Christ:G5547 (he is LordG2962 of all:G3956)
That word,G4487 I say, you know,G1492 which was publishedG1096 throughoutG2596 allG3650 Judaea,G2449 and beganG756 from Galilee,G1056 afterG3326 the baptismG908 whichG3739 JohnG2491 preached;G2784
HowG5613 GodG2316 anointedG5548 JesusG2424 of NazarethG3478 with the HolyG40 GhostG4151 and with power:G1411 whoG3739 wentG1330 aboutG1330 doingG2109 good,G2109 and healingG2390 allG3956 that were oppressedG2616 of the devil;G1228 for GodG2316 was with him.
And we are witnessesG3144 of allG3956 things whichG3739 he didG4160 bothG5037 in the landG5561 of the Jews,G2453 and in Jerusalem;G2419 whomG3739 they slewG337 and hangedG2910 onG1909 a tree:G3586
Him GodG2316 raisedG1453 up the thirdG5154 day,G2250 and showedG1325 him openly;G1717
Not to allG3956 the people,G2992 but to witnessesG3144 chosenG4401 beforeG4401 God,G2316 even to us, whoG3748 did eatG4906 and drinkG4844 with him afterG3326 he roseG450 from the dead.G3498
And he commandedG3853 us to preachG2784 to the people,G2992 and to testifyG1263 that it is he whichG3588 was ordainedG3724 of GodG2316 to be the JudgeG2923 of quickG2198 and dead.G3498
To him give allG3956 the prophetsG4396 witness,G3140 that throughG1223 his nameG3686 whoeverG3956 G3588 believesG4100 in him shall receiveG2983 remissionG859 of sins.G266
While PeterG4074 yetG2089 spokeG2980 theseG5023 words,G4487 the HolyG40 GhostG4151 fellG1968 onG1909 allG3956 them which heardG191 the word.G3056
And they of the circumcisionG4061 which believedG4103 were astonished,G1839 as manyG3745 as cameG4905 with Peter,G4074 becauseG3754 that onG1909 the GentilesG1484 alsoG2532 was pouredG1632 out the giftG1431 of the HolyG40 Ghost.G4151
For they heardG191 them speakG2980 with tongues,G1100 and magnifyG3170 God.G2316 ThenG5119 answeredG611 Peter,G4074
CanG1410 anyG5100 manG5100 forbidG2967 water,G5204 that theseG5128 should not be baptized,G907 whichG3748 have receivedG2983 the HolyG40 GhostG4151 as wellG2532 as we?
And he commandedG4367 them to be baptizedG907 in the nameG3686 of the Lord.G2962 ThenG5119 prayedG2065 they him to tarryG1961 certainG5100 days.G2250
