Peter's Vision

The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, (A)Peter went up (B)on the housetop about (C)the sixth hour[a] to pray. 10 And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into (D)a trance 11 and saw (E)the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth. 12 In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him: “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” 14 But Peter said, “By no means, Lord; (F)for I have never eaten anything that is (G)common or (H)unclean.” 15 And the voice came to him again a second time, (I)“What God has made clean, do not call common.”

  1. Acts 10:9 That is, noon

On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
