Acts 12

  1 G1161 Now G2596 about G1565 that G2540 time G2264 Herod G935 the king G1911 stretched forth G5495 his hands G2559 to trouble G5100 some G575 of G1577 the church.
  2 G1161 And G337 he killed G2385 James G80 the brother G2491 of John G3162 with the sword.
  3 G2532 And G3754 because G1492 he saw G2076   G701 it pleased G2453 the Jews, G4369 he proceeded further G4815 to take G4074 Peter G2532 also. G1161 (Then G2258 were G2250 the days G106 of unleavened bread.)
  4 G2532 And G3739 when G4084 he had apprehended him, G5087 he put G1519 him in G5438 prison, G3860 and delivered G5064 him to four G5069 quaternions G4757 of soldiers G5442 to keep G846 him; G1014 intending G3326 after G3957 Easter G321 to bring G846 him G321 forth G2992 to the people.
  5 G4074 Peter G3767 therefore G3303   G5083 was kept G1722 in G5438 prison: G1161 but G4335 prayer G2258 was G1096 made G1618 without ceasing G5259 by G1577 the church G4314 to G2316 God G5228 for G846 him.
  6 G1161 And G3753 when G2264 Herod G3195 would G4254 have brought G846 him G4254 forth, G1565 the same G3571 night G4074 Peter G2258 was G2837 sleeping G3342 between G1417 two G4757 soldiers, G1210 bound G1417 with two G254 chains: G5037 and G5441 the keepers G4253 before G2374 the door G5083 kept G5438 the prison.
  7 G2532 And, G2400 behold, G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G2186 came upon G2532 him, and G5457 a light G2989 shone G1722 in G3612 the prison: G1161 and G3960 he struck G4074 Peter G4125 on the side, G1453 and raised G846 him G1453 up, G3004 saying, G450 Arise G1722 up G5034 quickly. G2532 And G846 his G254 chains G1601 fell off G1537 from G5495 his hands.
  8 G5037 And G32 the angel G2036 said G4314 to G846 him, G4024 Clothe yourself, G2532 and G5265 put on G4675 your G4547 sandals. G1161 And G3779 so G4160 he did. G2532 And G3004 he said G846 to him, G4016 Cast G4675 your G2440 garment G4016 about you, G2532 and G190 follow G3427 me.
  9 G2532 And G1831 he went out, G190 and followed G846 him; G2532 and G1492 knew G3756 not G3754 that G2076 it was G227 true G1096 which was done G1223 by G32 the angel; G1161 but G1380 thought G991 he saw G3705 a vision.
  10 G1161 When G1330 they were past G4413 the first G2532 and G1208 the second G5438 guard, G2064 they came G1909 to G4603 the iron G4439 gate G5342 that leads G1519 to G4172 the city; G3748 which G455 opened G846 to them G844 of his own accord: G2532 and G1831 they went out, G4281 and passed on down G1520 one G4505 street; G2532 and G2112 immediately G32 the angel G868 departed G575 from G846 him.
  11 G2532 And when G4074 Peter G1096 had come G1722 to G1438 himself, G2036 he said, G3568 Now G1492 I know G230 for sure, G3754 that G2962 the Lord G1821 has sent G846 his G32 angel, G2532 and G1807 has delivered G3165 me G1537 out of G5495 the hand G2264 of Herod, G2532 and G3956 from all G4329 the expectation G2992 of the people G2453 of the Jews.
  12 G5037 And G4894 when he had considered G2064 what happened, he came G1909 to G3614 the house G3137 of Mary G3384 the mother G2491 of John, G1941 whose surname was G3138 Mark; G3757 where G2425 many G2258 were G4867 gathered together G2532   G4336 praying.
  13 G1161 And as G4074 Peter G2925 knocked G2374 at the door G4440 of the gate, G3814 a girl G4334 came G5219 to listen, G3686 named G4498 Rhoda.
  14 G2532 And G1921 when she knew G4074 Peter's G5456 voice, G455 she opened G3756 not G4440 the gate G575 for G5479 gladness, G1161 but G1532 ran in, G518 and told G2476 how G4074 Peter G2476 stood G4253 before G4440 the gate.
  15 G1161 And G2036 they said G4314 to G846 her, G3105 You are mad. G1161 But G1340 she constantly affirmed G2192 that it was G3779 even so. G1161 Then G3004 said they, G2076 It is G846 his G32 angel.
  16 G1161 But G4074 Peter G1961 continued G2925 knocking: G1161 and G455 when they had opened G1492 the door, and saw G2532 him, G1839 they were astonished.
  17 G1161 But G2678 he, beckoning G846 to them G5495 with his hand G4601 to hold their peace, G1334 declared G846 to them G4459 how G2962 the Lord G1806 had brought G846 him G1537 out of G5438 the prison. G1161 And G2036 he said, G518 Go tell G5023 these things G2385 to James, G2532 and G80 to the brothers. G2532 And G1831 he departed, G4198 and went G1519 into G2087 another G5117 place.
  18 G1161 Now G1096 as soon as it was G2250 day, G2258 there was G3756 no G3641 small G5017 stir G1722 among G4757 the soldiers, G5101 what G687   G1096 had become G4074 of Peter.
  19 G1161 And G2264 when Herod G1934 had sought G846 for him, G2532 and G2147 found him G3361 not, G350 he examined G5441 the keepers, G2753 and commanded that G520 they should be put to death. G2532 And G2718 he went down G575 from G2449 Judæa G1519 to G2542 Cæsarea, G1304 and G1304 there stayed.
  20 G1161 And G2264 Herod G2258 was G2371 highly displeased G5183 with those of Tyre G2532 and G4606 Sidon: G1161 but G3918 they came G3661 with one accord G4314 to G846 him, G2532 and, G3982 having made G986 Blastus G935 the king's G1909   G2846 chamberlain G3982 their friend, G154 desired G1515 peace; G1223 because G846 their G5561 country G5142 was nourished G575 by G937 the king's country.
  21 G1161 And G5002 upon a set G2250 day G2264 Herod, G1746 arrayed in G937 royal G2532 apparel, G2523 sat G1909 upon G968 his throne, G1215 and made a speech G4314 to G846 them.
  22 G1161 And G1218 the people G2019 gave a shout, G5456 saying, It is the voice G2316 of a god, G2532 and G3756 not G444 of a man.
  23 G1161 And G3916 immediately G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G3960 struck G846 him, G473 because G3739   G1325 he gave G3756 not G2316 God G1391 the glory: G2532 and G1096 he was G4662 eaten of worms, G1634 and gave up the Spirit.
  24 G1161 But G3056 the word G2316 of God G837 grew G2532 and G4129 multiplied.
  25 G1161 And G921 Barnabas G2532 and G4569 Saul G5290 returned G1537 from G2419 Jerusalem, G4137 when they had fulfilled G1248 their ministry, G2532 and G4838 took with them G2491 John, G1941 whose surname was G3138 Mark.
