Acts 12

  1 G1161 Now G2596 about G1565 that G2540 time, G935 King G2264 Herod G1911 stretched out G5495 his hands G2559 to oppress G5100 some G575 of G1577 the assembly.
  2 G1161 He G337 killed G2385 James, G80 the brother G2491 of John, G3162 with the sword.
  3 G2532   G3754 When G1492 he saw G2076 that G701 it pleased G2453 the Jews, G4369 he proceeded G4815 to seize G4074 Peter G2532 also. G1161 This G2258 was during G2250 the days G106 of unleavened bread.
  4 G2532   G3739 When G4084 he had arrested him, G5087 he put G1519 him in G5438 prison, G3860 and delivered G5064 him to four G5069 squads G4757 of four soldiers G5442 each to guard G846 him, G1014 intending G321 to bring G846 him G321 out G2992 to the people G3326 after G3957 the Passover.
  5 G4074 Peter G3767 therefore G3303   G5083 was kept G1722 in G5438 the prison, G1161 but G1618 constant G4335 prayer G2258 was G1096 made G5259 by G1577 the assembly G4314 to G2316 God G5228 for G846 him.
  6 G1161 The G1565 same G3571 night G3753 when G2264 Herod G3195 was about G4254 to bring G846 him G4254 out, G4074 Peter G2258 was G2837 sleeping G3342 between G1417 two G4757 soldiers, G1210 bound G1417 with two G254 chains. G5037   G5441 Guards G4253 in front G2374 of the door G5083 kept G5438 the prison.
  7 G2532 And G2400 behold, G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G2186 stood by G2532 him, and G5457 a light G2989 shone G1722 in G1161 the cell. G3960 He struck G4074 Peter G4125 on the side, G1161 and G1453 woke G846 him G1453 up, G3004 saying, G450 "Stand G1722 up G5034 quickly!" G2532   G846 His G254 chains G1601 fell off G1537 from G5495 his hands.
  8 G5037 The G32 angel G2036 said G4314 to G846 him, G4024 "Get dressed G2532 and G5265 put on G4675 your G4547 sandals." G1161 He G4160 did G3779 so. G3004 He said G846 to him, G4016 "Put G4016 on G4675 your G2440 cloak, G4675   G2532 and G190 follow G3427 me."
  9 G2532 And G1831 he went out G190 and followed G846 him. G2532 He G3756 didn't G1492 know G3754 that G2076 what was G1096 being done G1223 by G32 the angel G227 was real, 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 G4172 into the city, G3748 which G455 opened G1519 to G846 them G844 by itself. G2532 They G1831 went out, G4281 and went down G1520 one G4505 street, G2532 and G2112 immediately G32 the angel G868 departed G575 from G846 him.
  11 G2532 When G4074 Peter G1096 had come G1722 to G1438 himself, G2036 he said, G3568 "Now G230 I truly G1492 know G3754 that G2962 the Lord G1821 has sent G846 out his G32 angel G2532 and G1807 delivered G3165 me G1537 out of G5495 the hand G1537 of G2264 Herod, G2532 and G2453 from everything the Jewish G2992 people G4329 were expecting."
  12 G5037   G4894 Thinking G2064 about that, 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 and G4336 were praying.
  13 G1161 When G4074 Peter G2925 knocked G2374 at the door G4440 of the gate, G3814 a maid G3686 named G4498 Rhoda G4334 came G5219 to answer.
  14 G2532 When G1921 she recognized G4074 Peter's G5456 voice, G3756 she didn't G455 open G4440 the gate G575 for G5479 joy, G1161 but G1532 ran in, G518 and reported G2476 that G4074 Peter G2476 was standing G1532 in G4440 front of the gate.
  15 G1161 They G2036 said G4314 to G846 her, G3105 "You are crazy!" G1161 But G1340 she insisted G2192 that it was G3779 so. G1161   G3004 They G2076 said, "It is G846 his G32 angel."
  16 G1161 But G4074 Peter G1961 continued G2925 knocking. G1161 When G455 they had opened, G1492 they saw G2532 him, G1839 and were amazed.
  17 G1161 But G2678 he, beckoning G846 to them G5495 with his hand G4601 to be silent, G1334 declared G846 to them G4459 how G2962 the Lord G1806 had brought G846 him G1537 out of G5438 the prison. G1161 He G2036 said, G518 "Tell G5023 these things G2385 to James, G1161 and G80 to the brothers." G2532 Then G1831 he departed, G4198 and went G1519 to 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 about what G687   G1096 had become G4074 of Peter.
  19 G1161 When G2264 Herod G1934 had sought G846 for him, G1161 and G3361 didn't G2147 find him, G350 he examined G5441 the guards, G2753 and commanded that G520 they should be put to death. G2532 He G2718 went down G575 from G2449 Judea G1519 to G2542 Caesarea, G2532 and G1304 stayed there.
  20 G1161 Now G2264 Herod G2258 was G2371 very angry G5183 with the people of Tyre G2532 and G4606 Sidon. G1161 They G3918 came G3661 with one accord G4314 to G846 him, G2532 and, G3982 having made G986 Blastus, G935 the king's G1909 personal G2846 aide, G3982 their friend, G154 they asked G1515 for peace, G1223 because G846 their G5561 country G5142 depended G575 on G937 the king's country for food.
  21 G1161 On G5002 an appointed G2250 day, G2264 Herod G1746 dressed himself in G937 royal G2532 clothing, G2523 sat G1909 on G968 the throne, G1215 and gave a speech G4314 to G846 them.
  22 G1161 The G1218 people G2019 shouted, G5456 "The voice G2316 of a god, G2532 and G3756 not G444 of a man!"
  23 G1161   G3916 Immediately G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G3960 struck G846 him, G473 because G3739   G3756 he didn't G1325 give G2316 God G1391 the glory, G2532 and G1096 he was G4662 eaten by worms G1634 and died.
  24 G1161 But G3056 the word G2316 of God G837 grew G2532 and G4129 multiplied.
  25 G1161   G921 Barnabas G1161 and G4569 Saul G5290 returned G1537 to G2419 Jerusalem, G4137 when they had fulfilled G1248 their service, G2532 also G4838 taking with them G2491 John G1941 whose surname was G3138 Mark.
