Acts 10 ©
Cornelius, a devout centurion, being commanded by an angel, sendeth for Peter; who in the meantime is prepared by an heavenly vision: and, receiving a command from the Spirit, goeth with the messengers to Caesarea. Cornelius receiveth him with great respect, and sheweth the occasion of his sending for him. Peter preacheth Christ to him and his company: the Holy Ghost falleth on them, whereupon they are baptized.
And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;
And saw lheaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been ma great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
Wherein were all *manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men rwhich were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate,
And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.
Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?
And as he talked with him, he went in, and found emany that were come together.
Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee.
pThe word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he qis Lord of all:)
That word, I say, ye know, rwhich was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
How sGod anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy *Ghost and with power: who twent about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for uGod was with him.
And vwe are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom wthey slew and hanged on a tree:
Him xGod raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
zAnd he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he awhich was ordained of God to be the Judge of *quick and dead.
bTo him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive c*remission of sins.
