Luke 22:31-34

31 Simon, Simon, behold, Satan sought you out, to sift you as wheat: 32 but I prayed for you, that your faith may not fail you: and thou, when having turned, strengthen thy brethren: 33 but he said to Him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee to prison and to death. 34 And He said; I say unto thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

Acts 12:3-19

3 And seeing that it is pleasing to the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also: and those were the days of the unleavened bread: 4 whom having seized, he also put in prison, having committed him to four quaternions of soldiers to guard him; wishing to bring him out to the people after the passover. 5 Then indeed Peter was kept in prison: but prayer to God in his behalf was incessantly made by the church. 6 But when Herod was about to lead him forth, and Peter was sleeping that night between two soldiers, and bound with two chains; and the guards were keeping guard before the door. 7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord stood over him, and a light shone in the house; and having touched the side of Peter, he raised him up, saying; Rise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. 8 And the angel said to him, Gird thyself, and put on thy sandals. And he thus did. And he says to him, Throw thy cloak about thee, and follow me. 9 And having come out, he was following; and did not know that it is true which was done by the angel; but he was thinking that he saw a vision. 10 And having come through the first guard and the second, they came to the iron gate leading into the city; which opened to them of its own accord: and having come out, they came on to the first street; and the angel immediately departed from him. 11 And Peter coming to himself, said, Now I know truly, that the Lord sent his angel, and delivered me out of the hand of Herod, out of all the expectation of the people of the Jews. 12 And recognizing his whereabouts, he came to the house of Mary, the mother of John, called Mark; where many were assembled and praying. 13 And he knocking at the door of the gate, a damsel, by name Rhoda, came to hearken: 14 and recognizing the voice of Peter, from joy did not open the gate, but running in, she proclaimed that Peter stands before the gate. 15 And they said to her, You are gone mad; but she persisted that it was so. And they said, It is his angel. 16 But Peter remained knocking: and having opened, they saw him, and were astonished. 17 And he, beckoning to them with his hand to keep silent, related how the Lord led him out from the prison: and said, Proclaim these things to James, and the brethren. And having gone out, he departed into another place. 18 And it being day, there was no small commotion among the soldiers, as to where Peter then was. 19 And Herod having sought him, and found him not, condemning the guards, commanded that they should be put to death; and having gone down from Judea to Caesarea, he tarried.

Acts 10:1-48

1 And a certain man in Caesarea, by name Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian, 2 devout, and fearing God with all his house, and doing many alms to the people, and praying to God always; 3 saw openly in a vision about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming to him and saying to him, Cornelius. 4 And he looking upon him, and being afraid, said, What is it, Lord? And he said to him, Thy prayer and thine alms have come up for a memorial before God. 5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for a certain Simon, who is called Peter: 6 he is lodging with a certain Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea. 7 And when the angel speaking to him went away, calling two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of those who waited on him continually; 8 and having related all things to them, he sent them away to Joppa. 9 And on the following day, they traveling, and drawing nigh the city, Peter went up on the house to pray about the sixth hour. 10 And he became hungry, and wished to eat: but they getting it ready, an ecstasy came on him, 11 and he saw the heaven open, and a certain vessel like a great sheet came down, and resting upon the earth with four rope ends: 12 in which were all quadrupeds, and creeping things of the earth, and birds of the heaven. 13 And a voice came to him, Arising, Peter, slay, and eat. 14 And Peter said, By no means, Lord, because I never was in the habit of eating anything unconsecrated and unclean. 15 And the voice again the second time came to him, Whatsoever things God has cleansed, do not count unclean; 16 and this took place the third time; and immediately the vessel was received up into the heaven. 17 And while Peter was at a loss within himself, as to what the vision he saw might be, behold, the men having been sent by Cornelius, making inquiry for the house of Simon, stood at the gate, 18 and having called, they were asking, if Simon, called Peter, lodges there. 19 And Peter meditating concerning the vision, the Spirit said to him, Behold, men are seeking thee; 20 but rising up, come down, and go with them, doubting nothing: because I have sent them. 21 And Peter having come down to the men, said, Behold, I am he whom you are seeking: what is the cause on account of which you are present? 22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a man righteous and fearing God, and being of good report by all the nation of the Jews, was warned by a holy angel to send for thee to come into his house, and to hear words with thee. 23 Then having called them in, he lodged them. And on the following day, rising up he went out with them, and certain ones of the brethren, who were from Joppa went along with him. 24 And on the following day they came into Caesarea; and Cornelius was expecting them, having called together his own relatives and near friends. 25 And when it came to pass that Peter was coming in, Cornelius meeting him, falling down at his feet, worshiped. 26 And Peter raised him up, saying, Stand up; I also am a man. 27 And conversing with him, he came in, and finds many having come together; 28 and he said to them, You know how it is an unlawful thing for a Jewish man to associate with, or come to one of another nation; and God has shown me not to call any man unconsecrated or unclean. 29 Therefore indeed, being sent for, I came unhesitatingly. Then I make inquiry for what word did you send for me? 30 And Cornelius said, From the fourth day until this hour, indeed the ninth, I was praying in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in shining apparel, 31 and says, Cornelius, thy prayer has been heard, and thine alms have been remembered before God. 32 Therefore send to Joppa, and call for Simon, who is called Peter. He is lodging in the house of Simon the tanner by the sea. 33 Then I immediately sent for thee; and thou hast done well being present. Now therefore we are all present before God, to hear all things which have been commanded thee of the Lord. 34 And Peter, opening his mouth, said, In truth I apprehend that God is no respecter of persons: 35 but in every nation the one fearing him, and working righteousness, is acceptable to him; 36 the word which he sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ: he is Lord of all. 37 This word you know, which was throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38 Jesus, the one from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Ghost and power: who went about doing good, and healing all oppressed by the devil: because God is with Him. 39 And we are witnesses in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they even slew, hanging him on the wood. 40 God raised him on the third day, and gave him to be made manifest; 41 not to all the people, but to the witnesses having been chosen of God, to us, who ate and drank along with him after He arose from the dead: 42 and He commanded us to preach to the people, and to witness that He is the One ordained of God the Judge of the living and the dead. 43 And to Him give all the prophets witness, that every one believing on him receives the remission of sins through His name. 44 Peter yet speaking these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all those hearing the word. 45 And the faithful ones who were of the circumcision, so many as came along with Peter, were astonished, because the gift of the Holy Ghost was poured out on the Gentiles also; 46 for they were hearing them speaking with tongues, and magnifying God. 47 Then Peter responded, Whether is any one able to forbid the water, that these shall not be baptized, whosoever received the Holy Ghost as we indeed? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to tarry some days.
