At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of 1what was known as the Italian Cohort,
a devout man 2who feared God with all his household, gave alms generously to the people, and prayed continually to God.
33About the ninth hour of the daya4he saw clearly in a vision 5an angel of God come in and say to him, "Cornelius."
And he stared at him in terror and said, "What is it, Lord?" And he said to him, "Your prayers and your alms 6have ascended 7as a memorial before God.
And now send men to Joppa and bring one Simon who is called Peter.
He is lodging 8with one Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea."
When the angel who spoke to him had departed, he called two of his servants and a devout soldier from among those who attended him,
and having related everything to them, he sent them to Joppa.
