View In My Bible
5 "1I was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw 2a vision, an aobject coming down like a great sheet lowered by four corners from bthe sky; and it came right down to me, 6 and when I had fixed my gaze on it and was observing it cI saw the four-footed animals of the earth and the wild beasts and the dcrawling creatures and the birds of the eair. 7 "I also heard a voice saying to me, 'Get up, Peter; fkill and eat.' 8 "But I said, 'By no means, Lord, for nothing gunholy or unclean has ever entered my mouth.' 9 "But a voice from heaven answered a second time, '3What God has cleansed, no longer hconsider unholy.' 10 "This happened three times, and everything was drawn back up into ithe sky. 11 "And behold, at that moment three men appeared at the house in which we were staying, having been sent to me from 4Caesarea. 12 "5The Spirit told me to go with them j6without misgivings. 7These 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 kstanding in his house, and saying, 'Send to Joppa and have Simon, who is also called Peter, brought here; 14 and he will speak 8words to you by which you will be saved, you and 9all your household.' 15 "And as I began to speak, 10the Holy Spirit fell upon them just 11as He did upon us at the beginning.
