Standing and saying (staqenta kai eiponta). More precisely, "stand and say" (punctiliar act, first aorist passive and second aorist active participles). Fetch Simon (metapempsai Simwna). First aorist middle imperative. Third time mentioned ( Luke 10:5Luke 10:22 ; Luke 11:13 ). Perhaps Peter is anxious to make it plain that he did not go of his own initiative into the house of Cornelius. He went under God's direct orders.
