11 Now de the ho apostles apostolos and kai the ho brothers adelphos who ho were eimi throughout kata · ho Judea Ioudaia heard akouō that hoti the ho Gentiles ethnos too kai had accepted dechomai the ho word logos of ho God theos. So de when hote Peter Petros went up anabainō to eis Jerusalem Ierousalēm, they ho who were of ek the circumcision peritomē took diakrinō issue with pros him autos, saying legō, “ You went eiserchomai to pros a house of echō uncircumcised akrobystia men anēr and kai ate synesthiō with them autos.” But de Peter Petros began archō and explained ektithēmi to them autos in an orderly kathexēs fashion , saying legō, I egō was eimi in en the city polis of Joppa Ioppē, praying proseuchomai, and kai in en a trance ekstasis I saw a vision horama, an tis object skeuos descending katabainō, like hōs a great megas sheet othonē being let down kathiēmi by its four tessares corners archē from ek · ho heaven ouranos, and kai it came erchomai close achri to me egō. I looked katanoeō into eis it hos closely atenizō and kai I saw · ho four-footed tetrapous animals of the ho earth , · kai · ho wild thērion animals , · kai · ho reptiles herpeton, and kai · ho birds peteinon of the ho air ouranos. I also kai heard akouō · de a voice phōnē saying legō to me egō, ‘ Get anistēmi up , Peter Petros; slaughter thuō and kai eat esthiō!’ But de I said legō, ‘ By mēdamōs no means , Lord kyrios; for hoti nothing oudepote common koinos or ē unclean akathartos has ever entered eiserchomai into eis · ho my egō mouth stoma.’ But de the voice phōnē replied apokrinomai a second time ek from ek · ho heaven ouranos, ‘ What hos · ho God theos has made clean katharizō, you sy must not consider common koinoō.’ 10 This houtos · de happened ginomai three times epi, and kai again palin everything hapas was drawn anaspaō up into eis · ho heaven ouranos. 11 And kai behold idou, at that very moment exautēs three treis men anēr arrived ephistēmi at epi the ho house oikia, in en which hos we were eimi, sent apostellō from apo Caesarea Kaisareia to pros me egō. 12 And de the ho Spirit pneuma told legō me egō to go synerchomai with them autos without mēdeis hesitating diakrinō.

19 Now oun those ho who were scattered diaspeirō because apo of the ho persecution thlipsis, which ho came ginomai to pass over epi Stephen Stephanos, made dierchomai their way as heōs far as Phoenicia Phoinikē and kai Cyprus Kypros and kai Antioch Antiocheia, speaking laleō the ho word logos to no mēdeis one except ei mē Jews Ioudaios only monon. 20 But de there were eimi some tis of ek them autos, men anēr of Cyprus Kyprios and kai Cyrene Kyrēnaios, who hostis on coming erchomai to eis Antioch Antiocheia began to speak laleō also kai to pros the ho Hellenists Hellēnistēs, preaching euangelizō the ho Lord kyrios Jesus Iēsous. 21 And kai the hand cheir of kyrios the Lord kyrios was eimi with meta them autos, and te a great polys number arithmos became · ho believers pisteuō and turned epistrephō to epi the ho Lord kyrios. 22 The ho report logos of peri all this autos was heard akouō · de in eis the ho ears ous of the ho church ekklēsia · ho in en Jerusalem Ierousalēm, and kai they sent exapostellō Barnabas Barnabas as heōs far as Antioch Antiocheia. 23 When he hos came paraginomai and kai saw the ho grace charis · ho of ho God theos, he was glad chairō, and kai he began to exhort parakaleō them all pas to remain faithful prosmenō to the ho Lord kyrios in the ho purpose prothesis of their ho hearts kardia, 24 for hoti he was eimi a good agathos man anēr, · kai full plērēs of the Holy hagios Spirit pneuma and kai of faith pistis.

Acts 11 New International Version (NIV)

Peter Explains His Actions

11 The apostles and the believers throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him and said, “You went into the house of uncircumcised men and ate with them.”

Starting from the beginning, Peter told them the whole story: “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision. I saw something like a large sheet being let down from heaven by its four corners, and it came down to where I was. I looked into it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles and birds. Then I heard a voice telling me, ‘Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.’

“I replied, ‘Surely not, Lord! Nothing impure or unclean has ever entered my mouth.’

“The voice spoke from heaven a second time, ‘Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.’ 10 This happened three times, and then it was all pulled up to heaven again.

11 “Right then three men who had been sent to me from Caesarea stopped at the house where I was staying. 12 The Spirit told me to have no hesitation about going with them. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. 13 He told us how he had seen an angel appear in his house and say, ‘Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. 14 He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.’

15 “As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. 16 Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with[a] water, but you will be baptized with[b] the Holy Spirit.’ 17 So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?”

18 When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.”

The Church in Antioch

19 Now those who had been scattered by the persecution that broke out when Stephen was killed traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, spreading the word only among Jews. 20 Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21 The Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.

22 News of this reached the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he arrived and saw what the grace of God had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. 24 He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and a great number of people were brought to the Lord.

25 Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.

27 During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul.
