1 G1161 Now there G2258 was G5100 a certain G435 man G1722 in G2542 Caesarea, G2883 Cornelius G3686 by name, G1543 a centurion G1537 of G4686 the band G2564 called G2483 the Italian band,
2 G2152 a devout G2532 man, and G5399 one that feared G2316 God G4862 with G3956 all G846 his G3624 house, G5037 who G4160 gave G4183 much G1654 alms G2992 to the people, G2532 and G1189 prayed G2316 to God G1275 always.
3 G1492 He saw G1722 in G3705 a vision G5320 openly, G5616 as it were about G1766 the ninth G5610 hour G2250 of the day, G32 an angel G2316 of God G1525 coming in G846 unto him, G2532 and G2036 saying G4314 to G846 him, G2883 Cornelius.
4 G1161 And G816 he, fastening his eyes G846 upon him, G2532 and G1096 being G1719 affrighted, G2036 said, G5101 What G2076 is it, G2962 Lord? G1161 And G2036 he said G846 unto him, G4675 Thy G4335 prayers G2532 and G4675 thine G1654 alms G305 are gone up G1519 for G3422 a memorial G1799 before G2316 God.
5 G2532 And G3568 now G3992 send G435 men G1519 to G2445 Joppa, G2532 and G3343 fetch G4613 one Simon, G3739 who G1941 is G4074 surnamed Peter:
6 G3778 he G3579 lodgeth G3844 with G5100 one G4613 Simon G1038 a tanner, G3739 whose G3614 house G2076 is G3844 by G2281 the sea side.
7 G1161 And G5613 when G32 the angel G3588 that G2980 spake G2883 unto him G565 was departed, G5455 he called G1417 two G846 of his G3610 household-servants, G2532 and G2152 a devout G4757 soldier G3588 of them G4342 that waited G846 on him G4342 continually;
8 G2532 and G1834 having rehearsed G537 all G537 things G846 unto them, G649 he sent G846 them G1519 to G2445 Joppa.
9 G1161 Now on G1887 the morrow, G1565 as G3596 they were on their journey, G2532 and G1448 drew nigh G4172 unto the city, G4074 Peter G305 went up G1909 upon G1430 the housetop G4336 to pray, G4012 about G1623 the sixth G5610 hour:
10 G1161 and G1096 he became G4361 hungry, G2532 and G2309 desired G1089 to eat: G1161 but G1565 while they G3903 made ready, G846 he G1968 fell G1909 into G1611 a trance;
11 G2532 and G2334 he beholdeth G3772 the heaven G455 opened, G2532 and G5100 a certain G4632 vessel G2597 descending, G1909 G846 G5613 as G3173 it were a great G3607 sheet, G2532 G2524 let down G1210 by G5064 four G746 corners G1909 upon G1093 the earth:
12 G3739 wherein G5225 were G3956 all manner of G5074 fourfooted beasts G2532 and G2062 creeping things G1093 of the earth G2532 and G4071 birds G3772 of the heaven.
13 G2532 And G1096 there came G5456 a voice G4314 to G846 him, G450 Rise, G4074 Peter; G2380 kill G2532 and G5315 eat.
14 G1161 But G4074 Peter G2036 said, G3365 Not so, G2962 Lord; G3754 for G5315 I have G3763 never G5315 eaten G3956 anything G2839 that is common G2228 and G169 unclean.
15 G2532 And G5456 a voice G4314 came unto G846 him G3825 again G1537 G1208 the second time, G3739 What G2316 God G2511 hath cleansed, G2840 make G3361 not G4771 thou G2840 common.
16 G5124 And this G1096 was done G1909 G5151 thrice: G2532 and G4632 straightway the vessel G353 was received up G3825 G1519 into G3772 heaven.
17 G1161 Now G5613 while G4074 Peter G1280 was much perplexed G1722 in G1438 himself G5101 what G302 G3705 the vision G3739 which G1492 he had seen G1498 might mean, G2400 behold, G435 the men G3588 that G649 were sent G575 by G2883 Cornelius, G1331 having made inquiry G4613 for Simon's G3614 house, G2532 G2186 stood G1909 before G4440 the gate,
18 G2532 and G5455 called G4441 and asked G1487 whether G4613 Simon, G3588 who G1941 was surnamed G4074 Peter, G3579 were lodging G1759 there.
19 G1161 And while G4074 Peter G1760 thought G4012 on G3705 the vision, G4151 the Spirit G2036 said unto G846 him, G2400 Behold, G5140 three G435 men G2212 seek G4571 thee.
20 G235 But G450 arise, G2597 and get thee down, G2532 and G4198 go G4862 with G846 them, G3367 nothing G1252 doubting: G1360 for G1473 I G649 have sent G846 them.
21 G1161 And G4074 Peter G2597 went down G4314 to G435 the men, G2036 and said, G2400 Behold, G1473 I G1510 am G3739 he whom G2212 ye seek: G5101 what G156 is the cause G1223 wherefore G3739 ye G3918 are come?
22 G1161 And G2036 they said, G2883 Cornelius G1543 a centurion, G1342 a righteous G435 man G2532 and G5399 one that feareth G2316 God, G5037 and G3140 well reported G5259 of by G3650 all G1484 the nation G2453 of the Jews, G5537 was warned of God G5259 by G40 a holy G32 angel G3343 to send for G4571 thee G1519 into G846 his G3624 house, G2532 and G191 to hear G4487 words G3844 from G4675 thee.
23 G1528 So he G846 called them G1528 in G3579 and lodged G846 them. G1161 And G1887 on the morrow G1528 he G2532 arose and G4862 went forth with G846 them, G2532 and G5100 certain G80 of the brethren G575 from G2445 Joppa G4905 accompanied G846 him.
24 G2532 And G1887 on the morrow G1525 they entered G1519 into G2542 Caesarea. G1161 And G2883 Cornelius G4328 was waiting for G846 them, G2258 having G4779 called together G846 his G4773 kinsmen G2532 and G316 his near G5384 friends.
25 G1161 And G5613 when it came to pass G4074 that Peter G1096 G1525 entered, G2883 Cornelius G4876 met G846 him, G4098 and fell down G1909 at G4228 his feet, G4352 and worshipped him.
26 G1161 But G4074 Peter G1453 raised G846 him G1453 up, G3004 saying, G450 Stand up; G2504 I G846 myself G2504 also G1510 am G444 a man.
27 G2532 And G4926 as he talked with G846 him, G1525 he went in, G2532 and G2147 findeth G4183 many G4905 come together:
28 G5037 and G5346 he said G4314 unto G846 them, G5210 Ye G1987 yourselves know G5613 how G111 it is an unlawful thing G435 for a man G2076 that is G2453 a Jew G2228 to join himself or G4334 come unto G246 one of another nation; G2532 and yet G4334 unto G1698 me G2316 hath God G1166 showed G1166 that G3004 I should G3367 not G3004 call G444 any man G2839 common G2228 or G169 unclean:
29 G1352 wherefore G2532 also G2064 I G369 came without gainsaying, G3343 when I was sent for. G4441 I ask G3767 therefore G5101 with what G3056 intent G3343 ye sent for G3165 me.
30 G2532 And G2883 Cornelius G5346 said, G5067 Four G2250 days G575 ago, G3360 until G3778 this G5610 hour, G2252 I was G3522 keeping G1766 the ninth G5610 hour G4336 of prayer G1722 in G3450 my G3624 house; G2532 and G2400 behold, G435 a man G2476 stood G1799 before G3450 me G1722 in G2986 bright G2066 apparel,
31 G2532 and G5346 saith, G2883 Cornelius, G4675 thy G4335 prayer G1522 is heard, G2532 and G4675 thine G1654 alms G3415 are had in remembrance G1799 in the sight of G2316 God.
32 G3992 Send G3767 therefore G1519 to G2445 Joppa, G2532 and G3333 call unto thee G4613 Simon, G3739 who G1941 is G4074 surnamed Peter; G3778 he G3579 lodgeth G1722 in G3614 the house G4613 of G4613 Simon G1038 a tanner, G3844 by G2281 the sea side.
33 G1824 Forthwith G3767 therefore G3992 I sent G4314 to G4571 thee; G5037 and G4771 thou G4160 hast G2573 well G4160 done G4771 that thou G3854 art come. G3568 Now G3767 therefore G2249 we G3956 are all G3918 here present G1799 in the sight G2316 of God, G191 to hear G3956 all things G3588 that G4367 have been commanded G4671 thee G5259 of the Lord.
34 G1161 And G4074 Peter G455 opened G4750 his mouth G2036 and said, G1909 Of G225 a truth G2638 I perceive G3754 that G2316 God G2076 is G3756 no G4381 respecter of persons:
35 G235 but G1722 in G3956 every G1484 nation G3588 he G5399 that feareth G846 him, G2532 and G2038 worketh G1343 righteousness, G2076 is G1184 acceptable G846 to him.
36 G3056 The word G3739 which G649 he sent G5207 unto the children G2474 of Israel, G2097 preaching G1515 good tidings of peace G1223 by G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G3778 (He G2076 is G2962 Lord G3956 of all.) —
37 G4487 that saying G5210 ye G1492 yourselves know, G1096 which was published G2596 throughout G3650 all G2449 Judaea, G756 beginning G575 from G1056 Galilee, G3326 after G908 the baptism G3739 which G2491 John G2784 preached;
38 G2424 even Jesus G575 of G3478 Nazareth, G5613 how G2316 God G5548 anointed G846 him G40 with the Holy G4151 Spirit G2532 and G1411 with power: G3739 who G1330 went about G2109 doing good, G2532 and G2390 healing G3956 all G3588 that G2616 were oppressed G5259 of G1228 the devil; G3754 for G2316 God G2258 was G3326 with G846 him.
39 G2532 And G2249 we G2070 are G3144 witnesses G3956 of all things G3739 which G4160 he did G5037 both G1722 in G5561 the country G2453 of the Jews, G2532 and G1722 in G2419 Jerusalem; G3739 whom G337 also they slew, G2910 hanging G1909 him on G3586 a tree.
40 G5126 Him G2316 God G1453 raised up G5154 the third G2250 day, G2532 and G1325 gave G846 him G1096 to be made G1717 manifest,
41 G3756 not G3956 to all G2992 the people, G235 but G3144 unto witnesses G4401 that were chosen before G5259 of G2316 God, G2254 even to us, G3748 who G4906 ate G2532 and G4844 drank with G846 him G3326 after G846 he G450 rose G1537 from G3498 the dead.
42 G2532 And G3853 he charged G2254 us G2784 to preach G2992 unto the people, G2532 and G1263 to testify G3754 that G2076 this is G3588 he who G2076 is G3724 ordained G5259 of G2316 God G2923 to be the Judge G5259 of G2532 the living and G3498 the dead.
43 G5129 To him G3140 bear G3956 all G4396 the prophets G3140 witness, G1223 that through G846 his G3686 name G3956 every one G4100 that believeth G1519 on G846 him G2983 shall receive G859 remission G266 of sins.
44 G4074 While Peter G2089 yet G2980 spake G5023 these G4487 words, G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G1968 fell G1909 on G3956 all G3588 them G191 that heard G3056 the word.
45 G2532 And G3588 they G1537 of G4061 the circumcision G4103 that believed G1839 were amazed, G3745 as many as G4905 came G4074 with Peter, G3754 because that G1909 on G1484 the Gentiles G2532 also G1632 was poured out G1431 the gift G40 of the Holy G4151 Spirit.
46 G1063 For G191 they heard G846 them G2980 speak G1100 with tongues, G2532 and G3170 magnify G2316 God. G5119 Then G611 answered G4074 Peter,
47 G1410 Can G5100 any man G2967 forbid G3385 G5204 the water, G2967 that G5128 these G907 should G3361 not G907 be baptized, G3748 who G2983 have received G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G2531 as well G2532 as G2249 we?
