YLT 1 And there was a certain man in Cesarea, by name Cornelius, a centurion from a band called Italian, NIV 1 At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. YLT 2 pious, and fearing God with all his house, doing also many kind acts to the people, and beseeching God always, NIV 2 He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. YLT 3 he saw in a vision manifestly, as it were the ninth hour of the day, a messenger of God coming in 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!" YLT 4 and he having looked earnestly on him, and becoming afraid, said, `What is it, Lord?' And he said to him, `Thy prayers and thy kind acts came up for a memorial before God, NIV 4 Cornelius stared at him in fear. "What is it, Lord?" he asked.

YLT 6 this one doth lodge with a certain Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea; this one shall speak to thee what it behoveth thee to do.'

YLT 7 And when the messenger who is speaking to Cornelius went away, having called two of his domestics, and a pious soldier of those waiting on him continually, 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. YLT 8 and having declared to them all things, he sent them to Joppa. NIV 8 He told them everything that had happened and sent them to Joppa. YLT 9 And on the morrow, as these are proceeding on the way, and are drawing nigh to the city, Peter went up upon the house-top 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. YLT 10 and he became very hungry, and wished to eat; and they making ready, there fell upon him a trance, NIV 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. YLT 11 and he doth behold the heaven opened, and descending unto him a certain vessel, as a great sheet, bound at the four corners, and let down upon the earth, NIV 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. YLT 12 in which were all the four-footed beasts of the earth, and the wild beasts, and the creeping things, 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. YLT 13 and there came a voice unto him: `Having risen, Peter, slay and eat.' NIV 13 Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat." YLT 14 And Peter said, `Not so, Lord; because at no time did I eat anything common or unclean;' NIV 14 "Surely not, Lord!" Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean." YLT 15 and [there is] a voice again a second time unto him: `What God did cleanse, thou, declare not thou common;' NIV 15 The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean." YLT 16 and this was done thrice, and again was the vessel received up to the heaven. NIV 16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven. YLT 17 And as Peter was perplexed in himself what the vision that he saw might be, then, lo, the men who have been sent from Cornelius, having made inquiry for 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. YLT 18 and having called, they were asking if Simon, who is surnamed Peter, doth lodge here? NIV 18 They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there. YLT 19 And Peter thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, `Lo, three men do seek thee; NIV 19 While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Simon, three men are looking for you. YLT 20 but having risen, go down and go on 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." YLT 21 and Peter having come down unto the men who have been sent from Cornelius unto him, said, `Lo, I am he whom ye seek, what [is] the cause for which ye are present?' NIV 21 Peter went down and said to the men, "I'm the one you're looking for. Why have you come?" YLT 22 And they said, `Cornelius, a centurion, a man righteous and fearing God, well testified to, also, by all the nation of the Jews, was divinely warned by a holy messenger to send for thee, to his house, and to hear sayings 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." YLT 23 Having called them in, therefore, he lodged them, and on the morrow Peter went forth 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.

YLT 26 and Peter raised him, saying, `Stand up; I also myself am a man;' NIV 26 But Peter made him get up. "Stand up," he said, "I am only a man myself." YLT 27 and talking with him he went in, and doth find many having come together. NIV 27 Talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. YLT 28 And he said unto them, `Ye know how it is unlawful for a man, a Jew, to keep company with, or to come unto, one of another race, but to me God did shew 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. YLT 29 therefore also without gainsaying I came, having been sent for; I ask, therefore, for what matter ye did send for me?' NIV 29 So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?" YLT 30 And Cornelius said, `Four days ago till this hour, I was fasting, and [at] the ninth hour 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 YLT 31 and he said, Cornelius, thy prayer was heard, and thy kind acts were remembered before God; NIV 31 and said, 'Cornelius, God has heard your prayer and remembered your gifts to the poor. YLT 32 send, therefore, to Joppa, and call for Simon, who is surnamed Peter; this one doth lodge in the house of Simon a tanner, by the sea, who having come, shall 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.' YLT 33 at once, therefore, I sent to thee; thou also didst do well, having come; now, therefore, are we all before God present to hear all things that have been commanded thee by 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." YLT 34 And Peter having opened 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 YLT 35 but in every nation he who is fearing Him, and is working righteousness, is acceptable to Him; NIV 35 but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right. YLT 36 the word that he sent to the sons of Israel, proclaiming good news -- peace through Jesus Christ (this one is Lord of all,) 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. YLT 37 ye -- ye have known; -- the word that came throughout all Judea, having begun from Galilee, after the baptism that John preached; NIV 37 You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached-- YLT 38 Jesus who [is] from Nazareth -- how God did anoint him with the Holy Spirit and power; who went through, doing good, and healing all those oppressed by 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. YLT 39 and we -- we are witnesses of all things that he did, both in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem, -- whom they did slay, having hanged upon a tree. 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, YLT 40 `This one God did raise up the third day, and gave him to become manifest, NIV 40 but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen. YLT 41 not to all the people, but to witnesses, to those having been chosen before by God -- to us who did eat with [him], and did drink with him, after his rising out of 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. YLT 42 and he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify fully that it is he who hath been ordained by God 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.

NIV 43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name." YLT 44 While Peter is yet speaking these sayings, the Holy spirit fell upon all those hearing the word, NIV 44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. YLT 45 and those of the circumcision believing were astonished -- as many as came with Peter -- because also upon the nations the gift of the Holy Spirit hath been 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. YLT 46 for they were hearing them speaking with tongues and magnifying God. NIV 46 For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God. Then Peter said, YLT 47 Then answered Peter, `The water is any one able to forbid, that these may not be baptized, who the Holy Spirit did receive -- even as also we?'

Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.
