Acts 10:18 Meaning and Commentary

Acts 10:18

And called, and asked
That is, they called to the people of the house, Simon's family; and in a civil and courteous manner asked them,

whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter;
which they said to distinguish him from Simon the master of the house, and as Cornelius was directed, and they were instructed by him: concerning him they inquired, whether he

were lodged there;
the Ethiopic version adds, without any foundation for it, "and the place where they called at was Peter's lodging room".
