And there was a certain man in Cesarea, by name Cornelius, a centurion from a band called Italian,
pious, and fearing God with all his house, doing also many kind acts to the people, and beseeching God always,
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;'
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,
and now send men to Joppa, and send for a certain one Simon, who is surnamed Peter,
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.'
