Acts 12

  1 G1161 Now G2596 about G2540 that time G2264 Herod G935 the king G1911 stretched G1911 forth G5495 his hands G2559 to vex G5100 certain G1577 of the church.
  2 G337 And he killed G2385 James G80 the brother G2491 of John G3162 with the sword.
  3 G1492 And because he saw G701 it pleased G2453 the Jews, G4369 he proceeded G4815 further to take G4074 Peter G2532 also. G1161 (Then G2250 were the days G106 of unleavened bread.)
  4 G4084 And when he had apprehended G5087 him, he put G5438 him in prison, G3860 and delivered G5064 him to four G5069 squads G4757 of soldiers G5442 to keep G1011 him; intending G3326 after G3957 Easter G321 to bring G321 him forth G2992 to the people.
  5 G4074 Peter G3767 therefore G5083 was kept G5438 in prison: G4335 but prayer G1096 was made G1618 without G1618 ceasing G1577 of the church G2316 to God for him.
  6 G3753 And when G2264 Herod G3195 would G4254 have brought G4254 him forth, G1565 the same G3571 night G4074 Peter G2837 was sleeping G3342 between G1417 two G4757 soldiers, G1210 bound G1417 with two G254 chains: G5441 and the keepers G4253 before G2374 the door G5083 kept G5438 the prison.
  7 G2400 And, behold, G32 the angel G2962 of the Lord G2186 came G5457 on him, and a light G2989 shined G3612 in the prison: G3960 and he smote G4074 Peter G4125 on the side, G1453 and raised G3004 him up, saying, G450 Arise G1722 up quickly. G5034 G254 And his chains G1601 fell G1601 off G5495 from his hands.
  8 G32 And the angel G2036 said G2224 to him, Gird G5265 yourself, and bind G5265 on G4547 your sandals. G3779 And so G4160 he did. G3004 And he said G4016 to him, Cast G2440 your garment G4016 about G190 you, and follow me.
  9 G1831 And he went G190 out, and followed G1492 him; and knew G227 not that it was true G3588 which G1096 was done G32 by the angel; G1380 but thought G991 he saw G3705 a vision.
  10 G1330 When they were past G4413 the first G1208 and the second G5438 ward, G2064 they came G4603 to the iron G4439 gate G5342 that leads G4172 to the city; G3748 which G455 opened G848 to them of his own G844 accord: G1831 and they went G4281 out, and passed G3391 on through one G4505 street; G2112 and immediately G32 the angel G868 departed from him.
  11 G4074 And when Peter G1096 was come G1438 to himself, G2036 he said, G3568 Now G1492 I know G230 of a surety, G2962 that the LORD G1821 has sent G32 his angel, G1807 and has delivered G5495 me out of the hand G2264 of Herod, G3956 and from all G4329 the expectation G2992 of the people G2453 of the Jews.
  12 G4894 And when he had considered G2064 the thing, he came G3614 to the house G3137 of Mary G3384 the mother G2491 of John, G3588 whose G1941 surname G3138 was Mark; G3757 where G2425 many G4863 were gathered G4867 together G4336 praying.
  13 G4074 And as Peter G2925 knocked G4440 at the door of the gate, G3814 a damsel G4334 came G5219 to listen, G3686 named G4498 Rhoda.
  14 G1921 And when she knew G4074 Peter’s G5456 voice, G455 she opened G4440 not the gate G5479 for gladness, G1532 but ran G518 in, and told G4074 how Peter G2476 stood G4253 before G4440 the gate.
  15 G2036 And they said G3105 to her, You are mad. G1340 But she constantly G1340 affirmed G3779 that it was even so. G1161 Then G3004 said they, It is his angel.
  16 G4074 But Peter G1961 continued G2925 knocking: G455 and when they had opened G1492 the door, and saw G1839 him, they were astonished.
  17 G2678 But he, beckoning G5495 to them with the hand G4601 to hold G4601 their peace, G1334 declared G4459 to them how G2962 the Lord G1806 had brought G5438 him out of the prison. G2036 And he said, G518 Go show G5023 these G2385 things to James, G80 and to the brothers. G1831 And he departed, G4198 and went G1519 into G2087 another G5117 place.
  18 G1161 Now G1096 as soon G2250 as it was day, G3756 there was no G3641 small G5017 stir G1722 among G4757 the soldiers, G5101 what G686 G1096 was become G4074 of Peter.
  19 G2264 And when Herod G1934 had sought G2147 for him, and found G350 him not, he examined G5441 the keepers, G2753 and commanded G520 that they should be put G520 to death. G2718 And he went G2718 down G2449 from Judaea G2542 to Caesarea, G1304 and there stayed.
  20 G2264 And Herod G2371 was highly G2371 displeased G5184 with them of Tyre G4605 and Sidon: G3918 but they came G3661 with one G3661 accord G3982 to him, and, having made G986 Blastus G935 the king’s G1909 chamberlain G3982 their friend, G154 desired G1515 peace; G1223 because G5561 their country G5142 was nourished G937 by the king’s G5561 country.
  21 G5002 And on a set G2250 day G2264 Herod, G1746 arrayed G937 in royal G2066 apparel, G2523 sat G968 on his throne, G1215 and made G1215 an oration to them.
  22 G1218 And the people G2019 gave a shout, G5456 saying, It is the voice G2316 of a god, G444 and not of a man.
  23 G3916 And immediately G32 the angel G2962 of the Lord G3960 smote G473 him, because G3739 G1325 he gave G2316 not God G1391 the glory: G4662 and he was eaten G4662 of worms, G1634 and gave up the ghost.
  24 G3056 But the word G2316 of God G837 grew G4129 and multiplied.
  25 G921 And Barnabas G4569 and Saul G5290 returned G2419 from Jerusalem, G4137 when they had fulfilled G1248 their ministry, G4838 and took G2491 with them John, G3588 whose G1941 surname G3138 was Mark.
