31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded you, to sift as wheat: 32 And I have supplicated for thee that thy faith fail not: and thou, when having turned back, confirm thy brethren. 33 And he said to him, Lord, with thee am I ready to go, and to prison, and to death. 34 And he said, I say to thee, Peter, the cock shall not utter a sound this day, before thou shalt thrice deny knowing me.

Acts 12:3-19

3 And having seen that it is pleasing to the Jews, he added also to take Peter. (They were the days of unleavened bread.) 4 And having seized, he put him in prison, having delivered to four quaternions of soldiers to watch him; wishing after the pascha to bring him to the people. 5 Truly therefore was Peter kept in prison: and prayer was made continually by the church to God for him. 6 And when Herod was about to bring him before, in that night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the watch before the door kept the prison. 7 And, behold, the messenger of the Lord stood before, and a light shone in the dwelling: and having struck Peter's side, he raised him up, saying, Arise quickly. And his chains fell off from the hands. 8 And the messenger said to him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy small sandals. And he did so. And he said to him, Put round thy garment, and follow me. 9 And having come out, he followed him; and knew not that it is true that being done by the messenger; and seemed to see a vision. 10 And having passed by the first and second watch, they came to the iron gate leading to the city; which of its free will was opened to them: and having come out, they advanced one street; and quickly the messenger departed from him. 11 And Peter being as himself, said, Now know I truly that the Lord sent his messenger, and took me out of the hands of Herod, and all the expectation of the people of the Jews. 12 And being conscious, he came to the house of Mary mother of John, surnamed Mark; where were sufficient assembled, and praying. 13 And Peter having knocked at the door of the gate, a young girl came near to listen, by name Rhoda. 14 And having known Peter's voice, from joy she opened not the gate, and running, announced Peter to stand before the gate. 15 And they said to her, Thou art mad. And she was strengthened to have it so. And they said, It is his messenger. 16 And Peter continued knocking: and having opened, they saw him, and were moved. 17 And having shaken with the hand at them to be silent, he related to them how the Lord brought him out of prison. And he said, Announce these things to James, and the brethren. And having come out, he went to another place. 18 And it being day, not a little trouble was among the soldiers, what was become of Peter. 19 And Herod having sought him, and not found, having examined the watch, commanded them to be removed. And having come down from Judea to Cesarea, he tarried.

Acts 10:1-48

1 And a certain man was in Cesarea by name Cornelius, a centurion of the band called Italian, 2 Religious, and fearing God with all his house, and doing many alms to the people, and praying God always. 3 He saw in a vision manifestly about the ninth hour of the day a messenger of God having come in to him, and saying to him, Cornelius. 4 And having looked at him intently, and being afraid, he said, What is it, Lord? And he said to him, Thy prayers and thine alms went up for remembrance before God. 5 And now send men to Joppa, and send for Simon, who is called Peter: 6 He is received as guest with a certain Simon a currier, to whom is a house by the sea: he shall speak to thee what thou must do. 7 And when the messenger speaking to Cornelius departed, having called two of his servants, and a religious soldier of those persevering with him; 8 And having related all to them, he sent them to Joppa. 9 And the morrow, these travelling, and drawing near to the city, Peter went up upon the house to pray about the sixth hour: 10 And he was hungry, and would have eaten: and these making ready, a deep trance fell upon him, 11 And he sees heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as a great linen napkin fastened at the four beginnings, and laid down upon the earth: 12 In which were all the quadrupeds of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and the flying things of heaven. 13 And a voice was to him, Having risen, Peter, kill, and eat. 14 And Peter said, By no means, Lord; for never ate I anything common or unclean. 15 And a voice again of a second time to him, What things God cleansed, do not thou make common. 16 And this was for thrice: and again was the vessel taken up into heaven. 17 And as Peter was doubting in himself what the vision might be which he saw, and behold, the man sent from Cornelius having asked for Simon's house, stood at the gate, 18 And having called, they were inquiring if Simon, surnamed Peter, is received there as a guest. 19 And Peter reflecting concerning the vision, the Spirit said to him, Behold, three men seek thee. 20 But thou having risen, come down, and go with them, discussing nothing; for I have sent them. 21 And Peter having come down to the men sent from Cornelius to him, said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what the cause for which ye are present? 22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and fearing God, and witnessed of by the whole nation of the Jews, received intimation of the divine will by a holy messenger to send for thee to his house, and hear words of thee. 23 Therefore having called them in, he received as guests. And on the morrow Peter came forth with them, and certain of the brethren from Joppa came with him. 24 And the morrow he came to Cesarea. And Cornelius was waiting for them, having called together his kinsmen and friends by relationship. 25 And it was as Peter came in, Cornelius having met him, having fallen at his feet, worshipped. 26 And Peter raised him up, saying, Arise: I am also myself man. 27 And discoursing with him, he came in, and finds many come together. 28 And he said to them, Ye know that it is violating law for a man a Jew to join himself, or come near to a strange tribe: and God shewed me to call no man common or unclean. 29 And therefore came I without contradiction, having been sent for; therefore I inquire for what word ye sent for me? 30 And Cornelius said, From the fourth day till this hour I was fasting; and the ninth hour praying in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, 31 And he says, Cornelius, thy prayer was harkened to, and thine alms remembered before God. 32 Therefore send to Joppa, and call for Simon, who is surnamed Peter; he is received as guest in the house of Simon the currier by the sea: who, being present, shall speak to thee. 33 From this therefore sent I to thee: and thou didst well being present. Now therefore are all we present before God, to hear all commanded thee of God. 34 And Peter having opened the month; said, Of a truth I comprehend that God is no respecter of faces! 35 But in every nation he fearing him, and working justice, is acceptable to him. 36 The word which he sent to the sons of Israel, announcing good news, peace through Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all.) 37 The word ye know, having been through the whole of Judea, having begun from Galilee, after the immersion which John preached; 38 Jesus from Nazareth, how God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and power; who passed through doing good, and healing all oppressed by the devil; for God was with him. 39 And ye are witnesses of all which he did in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they killed, having hanged upon wood: 40 Him God raised the third day, and gave him to be manifest; 41 Not to all people, but to witnesses chosen before by God, to us, who ate and drank with him after his rising from the dead. 42 And he enjoined us to proclaim to the people, and to testify that this is he appointed by God, Judge of the living and the dead. 43 To him all the prophets testify, for all believing on him to receive remission of sins through his name. 44 Peter yet speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all hearing the word. 45 And believers of the circumcision were affected in mind, as many as came with Peter, that also upon the nations the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out. 46 For they heard them speaking with tongues, and magnifying God. Then answered Peter, 47 Much less can any hinder water, for these not to be immersed, who received the Holy Spirit as also we? 48 And he commanded them to be immersed in the name of the Lord. Then asked they him to remain certain. days.
