So I ask for what reason you have sent for me." 30 Cornelius said, "3Four days ago to this hour, I was praying in my house during 4the bninth hour; and behold, 5a man stood before me in shining garments, 31 and he said, 'Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your calms have been remembered before God. 32 'Therefore send to 6Joppa and invite Simon, who is also called Peter, to come to you; he is staying at the house of Simon the tanner by the sea.' 33 "So I sent for you immediately, and you have dbeen kind enough to come. Now then, we are all here present before God to hear all that you have been commanded by the Lord."
