And as he talked with him
About the excessive respect he showed him, and his own infirmity and frailty, and unworthiness, as a creature:
he went in;
to Cornelius's house, at the door, and through the porch, to some interior room and apartment in it:
and found many that were come together;
besides his family, many of his relations and intimate friends, whom he had got together on this occasion, that they might receive some advantage, as well as himself.
