3: Saying, Thou wentest in to men uncircumcised, and didst eat with them.
 
4: But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying,
 
5: I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:
 
6: Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
 
7: And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.
 
8: But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.
 
9: But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
 
10: And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.
 
11: And, behold, immediately there were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Caesarea unto me.
 
12: And the spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brethren accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house:
 
13: And he shewed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said unto him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter;
 
14: Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
 
15: And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.
 
16: Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
 
17: Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?
 
18: When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
 
19: Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only.
 
20: And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.
 
21: And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.
 
22: Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.
 
23: Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
 
24: For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.
 
25: Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:

Acts Chapter Twelve

1:Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
 
2: And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
 
3: And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
 
4: And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
 
5: Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
 
6: And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
 
7: And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
 
8: And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
 
9: And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
 
10: When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
 
11: And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.
 
12: And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.
 
13: And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.
 
14: And when she knew Peter's voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.
 
15: And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.
 
16: But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
 
17: But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
 
18: Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter.
 
19: And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode.
 
20: And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's country.
 
21: And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.
 
22: And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.
 
23: And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
 
24: But the word of God grew and multiplied.
 
25: And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.

Psalm Eighty Eight

1:O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:
 
2: Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
 
3: For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
 
4: I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:
 
5: Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.
 
6: Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
 
7: Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.
 
8: Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.
 
9: Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.
 
10: Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.
 
11: Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?
 
12: Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
 
13: But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
 
14: LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?
 
15: I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
 
16: Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
 
17: They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.
 
18: Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.

Deuteronomy Chapter Seventeen

1:Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the LORD thy God.
 
2: If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant,
 
3: And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;
 
4: And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and inquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel:
 
5: Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.
 
6: At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
 
7: The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you.
 
8: If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose;
 
9: And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and inquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:
 
10: And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee:
 
11: According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.
 
12: And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.
 
13: And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.
 
14: When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;
 
15: Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
 
16: But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
 
17: Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.
 
18: And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:
 
19: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:
 
20: That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

Deuteronomy Chapter Eighteen

1:The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance.
 
2: Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the LORD is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.
 
3: And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.
 
4: The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him.
 
5: For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever.
 
6: And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the LORD shall choose;
 
7: Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the LORD.
 
8: They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony.
 
9: When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
 
10: There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
 
11: Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
 
12: For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
 
13: Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
 
14: For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
 
15: The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
 
16: According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
 
17: And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
 
18: I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
 
19: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
 
20: But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
 
21: And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
 
22: When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
