▼ Lit those of the circumcision; i.e. Jewish Christians, c those who were circumcised took issue with him, 3 saying d “You ▼
▼ Or entered the house ofwent to uncircumcised men and ate with them.” 4 But Peter began speaking ▼
▼ Lit and was explainingand proceeded to explain to them g in orderly sequence, saying, 5 h “I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw i a vision, an ▼
▼ Or vesselobject coming down like a great sheet lowered by four corners from ▼ the sky; and it came right down to me, 6 and when I had fixed my gaze on it and was observing it ▼
▼ Lit and I sawI saw the four-footed animals of the earth and the wild beasts and the ▼
▼ Or reptilescrawling creatures and the birds of the ▼ air. 7 “I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Get up, Peter; ▼
▼ Or sacrificekill and eat.’ 8 “But I said, ‘By no means, Lord, for nothing ▼
▼ Or profane; lit commonunholy or unclean has ever entered my mouth.’ 9 “But a voice from heaven answered a second time, ‘ q What God has cleansed, no longer ▼
▼ Lit make commonconsider unholy.’ 10 “This happened three times, and everything was drawn back up into ▼ the sky. 11 “And behold, at that moment three men appeared at the house in which we were staying, having been sent to me from t Caesarea. 12 u “The Spirit told me to go with them ▼
▼ Or without making any distinction, w without misgivings. x These six brethren also went with me and we entered the man’s house. 13 “And he reported to us how he had seen the angel ▼
▼ Or after he had stood in his house and saidstanding in his house, and saying, ‘Send to Joppa and have Simon, who is also called Peter, brought here; 14 and he will speak z words to you by which you will be saved, you and aa all your household.’ 15 “And as I began to speak, ab the Holy Spirit fell upon them just ac as He did upon us at the beginning. 16 “And I remembered the word of the Lord, how He used to say, ‘ ad John baptized with water, but you will be baptized ▼
▼ Or inwith the Holy Spirit.’ 17 “Therefore if af God gave to them the same gift as He gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, ag who was I that I could ▼
▼ Lit prevent Godstand in God’s way?” 18 When they heard this, they ▼
▼ Lit became silentquieted down and aj glorified God, saying, “Well then, God has granted to the Gentiles also the ak repentance that leads to life.”
