Acts 10

DBY 1 But a certain man in Caesarea, -- by name Cornelius, a centurion of the band called Italic, NIV 1 At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. DBY 2 pious, and fearing God with all his house, [both] giving much alms to the people, and supplicating God continually, NIV 2 He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. DBY 3 -- saw plainly in a vision, about the ninth hour of the day, an angel of God coming unto him, and saying to him, Cornelius. NIV 3 One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision. He distinctly saw an angel of God, who came to him and said, "Cornelius!" DBY 4 But he, having fixed his eyes upon him, and become full of fear, said, What is it, Lord? And he said to him, Thy prayers and thine alms have gone up for a memorial before God. NIV 4 Cornelius stared at him in fear. "What is it, Lord?" he asked. The angel answered, "Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. DBY 5 And now send men to Joppa and fetch Simon, who is surnamed Peter. NIV 5 Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter. DBY 6 He lodges with a certain Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea. NIV 6 He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea." DBY 7 And when the angel who was speaking to him had departed, having called two of his household and a pious soldier of those who were constantly with him, NIV 7 When the angel who spoke to him had gone, Cornelius called two of his servants and a devout soldier who was one of his attendants. DBY 8 and related all things to them, he sent them to Joppa. NIV 8 He told them everything that had happened and sent them to Joppa. DBY 9 And on the morrow, as these were journeying and drawing near to the city, Peter went up on the house to pray, about the sixth hour. NIV 9 About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. DBY 10 And he became hungry and desired to eat. But as they were making ready an ecstasy came upon him: NIV 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. DBY 11 and he beholds the heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending, as a great sheet, [bound] by [the] four corners [and] let down to the earth; NIV 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. DBY 12 in which were all the quadrupeds and creeping things of the earth, and the fowls of the heaven. NIV 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles of the earth and birds of the air. DBY 13 And there was a voice to him, Rise, Peter, slay and eat. NIV 13 Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat." DBY 14 And Peter said, In no wise, Lord; for I have never eaten anything common or unclean. NIV 14 "Surely not, Lord!" Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean." DBY 15 And [there was] a voice again the second time to him, What God has cleansed, do not *thou* make common. NIV 15 The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean." DBY 16 And this took place thrice, and the vessel was straightway taken up into heaven. NIV 16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven. DBY 17 And as Peter doubted in himself what the vision which he had seen might mean, behold also the men who were sent by Cornelius, having sought out the house of Simon, stood at the gate, NIV 17 While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius found out where Simon's house was and stopped at the gate. DBY 18 and having called [some one], they inquired if Simon who was surnamed Peter was lodged there. NIV 18 They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there. DBY 19 But as Peter continued pondering over the vision, the Spirit said to him, Behold, three men seek thee; NIV 19 While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Simon, three men are looking for you. DBY 20 but rise up, go down, and go with them, nothing doubting, because *I* have sent them. NIV 20 So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them." DBY 21 And Peter going down to the men said, Behold, *I* am he whom ye seek: what is the cause for which ye come? NIV 21 Peter went down and said to the men, "I'm the one you're looking for. Why have you come?" DBY 22 And they said, Cornelius, a centurion, a righteous man, and fearing God, and borne witness to by the whole nation of the Jews, has been divinely instructed by a holy angel to send for thee to his house, and hear words from thee. NIV 22 The men replied, "We have come from Cornelius the centurion. He is a righteous and God-fearing man, who is respected by all the Jewish people. A holy angel told him to have you come to his house so that he could hear what you have to say." DBY 23 Having therefore invited them in, he lodged them. And on the morrow, rising up he went away with them, and certain of the brethren from Joppa went with him. NIV 23 Then Peter invited the men into the house to be his guests. The next day Peter started out with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa went along. DBY 24 And on the morrow they came to Caesarea. But Cornelius was looking for them, having called together his kinsmen and [his] intimate friends. NIV 24 The following day he arrived in Caesarea. Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends. DBY 25 And when Peter was now coming in, Cornelius met him, and falling down did [him] homage. NIV 25 As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence. DBY 26 But Peter made him rise, saying, Rise up: *I* myself also am a man. NIV 26 But Peter made him get up. "Stand up," he said, "I am only a man myself." DBY 27 And he went in, talking with him, and found many gathered together. NIV 27 Talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. DBY 28 And he said to them, *Ye* know how it is unlawful for a Jew to be joined or come to one of a strange race, and to *me* God has shewn to call no man common or unclean. NIV 28 He said to them: "You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with a Gentile or visit him. But God has shown me that I should not call any man impure or unclean. DBY 29 Wherefore also, having been sent for, I came without saying anything against it. I inquire therefore for what reason ye have sent for me. NIV 29 So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?" DBY 30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago I had been [fasting] unto this hour, and the ninth [I was] praying in my house, and lo, a man stood before me in bright clothing, NIV 30 Cornelius answered: "Four days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me DBY 31 and said, Cornelius, thy prayer has been heard, and thy alms have come in remembrance before God. NIV 31 and said, 'Cornelius, God has heard your prayer and remembered your gifts to the poor. DBY 32 Send therefore to Joppa and fetch Simon, who is surnamed Peter; he lodges in the house of Simon, a tanner, by the sea [who when he is come will speak to thee]. NIV 32 Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, who lives by the sea.' DBY 33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee, and *thou* hast well done in coming. Now therefore *we* are all present before God to hear all things that are commanded thee of God. NIV 33 So I sent for you immediately, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us." DBY 34 And Peter opening his mouth said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons, NIV 34 Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism DBY 35 but in every nation he that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him. NIV 35 but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right. DBY 36 The word which he sent to the sons of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, (*he* is Lord of all things,) NIV 36 You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. DBY 37 *ye* know; the testimony which has spread through the whole of Judaea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John preached -- NIV 37 You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached-- DBY 38 Jesus who [was] of Nazareth: how God anointed him with [the] Holy Spirit and with power; who went through [all quarters] doing good, and healing all that were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. NIV 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. DBY 39 *We* also [are] witnesses of all things which he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem; whom they also slew, having hanged him on a cross. NIV 39 "We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, DBY 40 This [man] God raised up the third day and gave him to be openly seen, NIV 40 but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen. DBY 41 not of all the people, but of witnesses who were chosen before of God, *us* who have eaten and drunk with him after he arose from among [the] dead. NIV 41 He was not seen by all the people, but by witnesses whom God had already chosen--by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. DBY 42 And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that *he* it is who was determinately appointed of God [to be] judge of living and dead. NIV 42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead. DBY 43 To him all the prophets bear witness that every one that believes on him will receive through his name remission of sins. NIV 43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name." DBY 44 While Peter was yet speaking these words the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were hearing the word. NIV 44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. DBY 45 And the faithful of the circumcision were astonished, as many as came with Peter, that upon the nations also the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out: NIV 45 The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. DBY 46 for they heard them speaking with tongues and magnifying God. Then Peter answered, NIV 46 For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God. Then Peter said, DBY 47 Can any one forbid water that these should not be baptised, who have received the Holy Spirit as we also [did]? NIV 47 "Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have." DBY 48 And he commanded them to be baptised in the name of the Lord. Then they begged him to stay some days. NIV 48 So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.
