- 1 And the apostles and brethren that were (5752) in Judaea heard (5656) that the Gentiles had also received (5662) the word of God. 2 And when Peter was come up (5627) to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended (5710) with him, 3 Saying * (5723), Thou wentest in (5627) to men uncircumcised * (5723), and didst eat (5627) with them. 4 But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning (5671), and expounded (5710) it by order unto them, saying (5723), 5 I was (5713) in the city of Joppa praying (5740): and in a trance I saw (5627) a vision, A certain vessel descend (5723), as it had been a great sheet, let down (5746) from heaven by four corners; and it came (5627) even to me: 6 Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes (5660), I considered (5707), and saw (5627) fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 7 And I heard (5656) a voice saying (5723) unto me, Arise (5631), Peter; slay (5657) and eat (5628). 8 But I said (5627), Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered (5627) into my mouth. 9 But the voice answered (5662) me again * * from heaven, What God hath cleansed (5656), that call not thou common (5720). 10 And this was done * (5633) three times: and all were drawn up (5681) again into heaven. 11 And, behold (5628), immediately there were three men already come (5627) unto the house where * * I was (5713), sent (5772) from Caesarea unto me. 12 And the Spirit bade (5627) me go with (5629) them, nothing doubting (5734). Moreover * * these six brethren accompanied * (5627) me, and we entered (5627) into the man's house: 13 And he shewed (5656) us how he had seen (5627) an angel in his house, which stood (5685) and said (5631) unto him, Send (5657) men to Joppa, and call for (5663) Simon, whose surname is (5746) Peter; 14 Who shall tell (5692) thee * * words, whereby * * thou and all thy house shall be saved (5701). 15 And as I began (5670) to speak (5721), the Holy Ghost fell (5627) on them, as * * on us at the beginning. 16 Then remembered I (5681) the word of the Lord, how that he said (5707), John indeed baptized (5656) with water; but ye shall be baptized (5701) with the Holy Ghost. 17 Forasmuch then as God gave (5656) them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed (5660) on the Lord Jesus Christ *; what was (5713) I, that I could withstand (5658) God? 18 When they heard (5660) these things, they held their peace (5656), and glorified (5707) God, saying (5723), Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted (5656) repentance unto life.
