He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance.111
He saw heaven opened2 and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners.
It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles of the earth and birds of the air.
Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat."14
"Surely not, Lord!"3 Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean."415
The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean."516
This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision,6 the men sent by Cornelius7 found out where Simon's house was and stopped at the gate.
They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there.
While Peter was still thinking about the vision,8 the Spirit said9 to him, "Simon, threea men are looking for you.
So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them."10
