1 G1161 Now G2596 about G1565 that G2540 time G2264 Herod G935 the king G1911 [G5627] stretched forth G5495 his hands G2559 [G5658] to treat badly G5100 certain G575 from G1577 the congregation.
2 G1161 And G337 [G5627] he killed G2385 Jacobus G80 the brother G2491 of John G3162 with the sword.
3 G2532 And G1492 [G5631] because he saw G3754 it G2076 G701 [G5748] pleased G2453 the Judeans, G4369 [G5639] he proceeded further G4815 [G5629] to take G4074 Peter G2532 also. G1161 (Then G2258 [G5713] were G2250 the days G106 of unleavened bread.)
4 G3739 G2532 And G4084 [G5660] when he had apprehended G5087 [G5639] him, he put G1519 him in G5438 prison, G3860 [G5631] and delivered G5064 him to four G5069 quaternions G4757 of soldiers G5442 [G5721] to keep G846 him; G1014 [G5740] intending G3326 after G3957 the Passover G321 0 to bring G846 him G321 [G5629] forth G2992 to the people.
5 G4074 G3303 Peter G3767 therefore G5083 [G5712] was kept G1722 in G5438 prison: G1161 but G4335 prayer G2258 [G5713] was G1096 [G5740] made G1618 without ceasing G5259 by G1577 the congregation G4314 to G2316 God G5228 for G846 him.
6 G1161 And G3753 when G2264 Herod G3195 [G5707] would G4254 0 have brought G846 him G4254 [G5721] forth, G1565 the same G3571 night G4074 Peter G2258 [G5713] was G2837 [G5746] sleeping G3342 between G1417 two G4757 soldiers, G1210 [G5772] bound G1417 with two G254 chains: G5037 and G5441 the keepers G4253 before G2374 the door G5083 [G5707] kept G5438 the prison.
7 G2532 And, G2400 [G5628] behold, G32 a messenger G2962 of the Lord G2186 [G5627] stood by G2532 him, and G5457 a light G2989 [G5656] shone G1722 in G3612 the prison: G1161 and G3960 [G5660] he smote G4074 Peter G4125 on the side, G1453 0 and raised G846 him G1453 [G5656] up, G3004 [G5723] saying, G450 [G5628] Arise G1722 G5034 quickly. G2532 And G846 his G254 chains G1601 [G5627] fell off G1537 from G5495 his hands.
8 G5037 And G32 the messenger G2036 [G5627] said G4314 to G846 him, G4024 [G5669] Gird thyself, G2532 and G5265 [G5669] bind on G4675 thy G4547 sandals. G1161 And G3779 so G4160 [G5656] he did. G2532 And G3004 [G5719] he saith G846 to him, G4016 0 Cast G2440 thy garment G4016 [G5640] about G4675 thee, G2532 and G190 [G5720] follow G3427 me.
9 G2532 And G1831 [G5631] he went out, G190 [G5707] and followed G846 him; G2532 and G1492 [G5715] knew G3756 not G3754 that G2076 [G5748] it was G227 true G3588 which G1096 [G5740] was done G1223 by G32 the messenger; G1161 but G1380 [G5707] thought G991 [G5721] he saw G3705 a vision.
10 G1161 When G1330 [G5631] they were past G4413 the first G2532 and G1208 the second G5438 guard, G2064 [G5627] they came G1909 to G4603 the iron G4439 gate G5342 [G5723] that leadeth G1519 to G4172 the city; G3748 which G455 [G5681] opened G846 to them G844 automatically: G2532 and G1831 [G5631] they went out, G4281 [G5627] and passed on through G3391 one G4505 street; G2532 and G2112 immediately G32 the messenger G868 [G5627] departed G575 from G846 him.
11 G2532 And G4074 Peter G1096 [G5637] having come G1722 to G1438 himself, G2036 [G5627] said, G3568 Now G1492 [G5758] I know G230 truly, G3754 that G2962 the Lord G1821 [G5656] hath sent G846 his G32 messenger, G2532 and G1807 [G5639] hath delivered G3165 me G1537 out of G5495 the hand G2264 of Herod, G2532 and G3956 from all G3588 the G4329 apprehension G3588 of the G2992 people G3588 of the G2453 Judeans.
12 G5037 And G4894 [G5631] when he had considered G2064 [G5627] the thing, he came G1909 to G3614 the house G3137 of Mary G3384 the mother G2491 of John, G1941 [G5746] whose surname was G3138 Mark; G3757 where G2425 a sufficient amount G2258 [G5713] were G4867 [G5772] gathered together G2532 G4336 [G5740] praying.
13 G1161 And G4074 as Peter G2925 [G5660] knocked at G2374 the door G4440 of the gate, G3814 a maid G4334 [G5627] came G5219 [G5658] to answer, G3686 named G4498 Rhoda.
14 G2532 And G1921 [G5631] when she knew G4074 Peter's G5456 voice, G455 [G5656] she opened G3756 not G4440 the gate G575 for G5479 gladness, G1161 but G1532 [G5631] ran in, G518 [G5656] and told that G4074 Peter G2476 [G5760] stood G4253 before G4440 the gate.
15 G1161 And G2036 [G5627] they said G4314 to G846 her, G3105 [G5736] Thou art mad. G1161 But G1340 [G5711] she constantly affirmed G2192 [G5721] that it was G3779 even so. G1161 Then G3004 [G5707] they said, G2076 [G5748] It is G846 his G32 messenger.
16 G1161 But G4074 Peter G1961 [G5707] continued G2925 [G5723] knocking: G1161 and G455 [G5660] having opened G1492 [G5627] the door, they saw G846 him, G2532 and G1839 [G5627] they were astonished.
17 G1161 But G2678 [G5660] he, beckoning G846 to them G5495 with the hand G4601 [G5721] to hold their peace, G1334 [G5662] declared G846 to them G4459 how G2962 the Lord G1806 [G5627] had brought G846 him G1537 out of G5438 the prison. G1161 And G2036 [G5627] he said, G518 [G5657] Go show G5023 these things G2385 to Jacobus, G2532 and G80 to the brethren. G2532 And G1831 [G5631] he departed, G4198 [G5675] and went G1519 into G2087 another G5117 place.
18 G1161 Now G1096 [G5637] as soon as it was G2250 day, G2258 [G5713] there was G3756 no G3641 small G5017 disturbance G1722 among G4757 the soldiers, G5101 G686 what G1096 [G5633] was become G4074 of Peter.
19 G1161 And G1934 0 when G2264 Herod G1934 [G5660] had sought for G846 him, G2532 and G2147 [G5631] found him G3361 not, G350 [G5660] he examined G5441 the keepers, G2753 [G5656] and commanded G520 [G5683] that they should be put to death. G2532 And G2718 [G5631] he went down G575 from G2449 Judaea G1519 to G2542 Caesarea, G1304 [G5707] and there abode.
20 G1161 And G2264 Herod G2258 [G5713] was G2371 [G5723] highly displeased G5183 with them of Tyre G2532 and G4606 Sidon: G1161 but G3918 [G5713] they came G3661 with one accord G4314 to G846 him, G2532 and, G3982 0 having made G986 Blastus G3588 the G935 king's G1909 G2846 chamberlain G3982 [G5660] their friend, G154 [G5710] desired G1515 peace; G1223 because G846 their G5561 region G5142 [G5745] was nourished G575 by G3588 the G937 king's region.
21 G1161 And G5002 upon a set G2250 day G2264 Herod, G1746 [G5671] arrayed G937 in royal G2066 apparel, G2523 [G5660] sat G1909 upon G968 his throne, G2532 and G1215 [G5707] made an oration G4314 to G846 them.
22 G1161 And G3588 the G1218 populace G2019 [G5707] 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 the messenger G2962 of the Lord G3960 [G5656] smote G846 him, G473 G3739 because G1325 [G5656] he gave G3756 not G2316 God G1391 the glory: G2532 and G1096 [G5637] he was G4662 eaten by worms, G1634 [G5656] and died.
