para oir todas las cosas, que Dios te ha mandado. 34 Entonces Pedro abrió la boca, y dijó: En verdad reconozco que Dios no hace accepcion de personas. 35 Sino que de cualquiera nacion, el que le teme, y obrá justicia, lo es grató. 36 Envió Dios la palabra que á los hijos de Israel, anunciandoles paz por Jesu-Christo: (este es el Señor de todos.) 37 La palabra digo que sabeis vosotros fué anunciada por toda la Judéa, comenzando desde Galiléa despues del bautismo que predicó Juan. 38 Como le ungió Dios de Espíritu Santo, y de virtud á Jesus de Nazareth, el cual anduvo haciendo bienes, y sanando á todos los oprimidos del diablo, porque Dios erá con él. 39 Y nosotros somos testigos de las cosas que hizó en la tierra de Judéa, y en Jerusalem: al cual ellos mataron, colgandole de un madero. 40 A este resucitó Dios al tercer dia, y quisó que apareciese manifiesto. 41 No á todo el pueblo, sino á los testigos que Dios había ordenado antes: á saber á nosotros que comimos y bebimos junto con él despues que resucitó de los muertos. 42 Y nos mandó que predicasemos al pueblo, y diesemos testimonio: que él es el que Dios ha puesto por Juez de vivos, y de muertos.

43 A este todos los Profetas dan testimonio, de que todos los que creyeren en él, recibirán perdon de los pecados por su nombre.

44 Estando aun Pedro diciendo estas palabras, el Espíritu Santo descendió sobre todos los que oían la palabra.

45 Y se espantaron los fieles de la circuncision, que habían venido con Pedro, de que tambien se der

to hear all things that are commanded thee of God. 34 Then Peter opened hismouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. 36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) 37 That word, Isay, ye know, which was published throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem ; whom they slew and hanged On a tree : 40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, evento us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. 42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. 43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. 44 o While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astomished, as many as came with Peter, because ramase el don del Espíritu Santo sobre los Gentiles.

46 Porque les oían hablar en lenguas, y que ensalzaban á Dios. Entonces Pedro respondió.

47 ¿Puede alguien negar el agua, paraque no sean bautizados estos que han recibido el Espíritu Santo tambien como nosotros?

48 Y mandóles bautizar en el mombre del Señor. Y rogaronle que se quedase con ellos por algumos dias.

CAPITULO XI.

OYERON los Apóstoles y los hermanos que estaban en Judéa: que tambien los Gentiles habían recibido la palabra de Dios. 2 Y cuando Pedro subió á Jerusalem, los que eran de la circuncision disputaban contra él. 3 Diciendo: ¿porqué has entrado en casa de hombres no circuncidados, y comiste con ellos? 4 Entonces Pedro tomando las cosas desde el principio se las declaró por su orden, diciendo. 5 Estando yo en la ciudad de Joppe, ví una vision en un extasis, es á saber un vaso como un gran lienzo que descendía, y que atado por los cuatro cabos erá bajado del cielo, y venía hásta mí. 6 En el cual como fijase yo los ojos, consideré y ví allí animales terrestres de cuatro pies, y fieras, y reptiles, y aves del cielo.

7Y oí tambien una voz, que me decía: Levantate Pedro, mata, y come.

8 Y dige: No haré Señor, porque ninguna cosa comun ó inmunda entró jamas en mi boca.

9 Mas otra vez me respondió la voz del cielo: lo que Dios purificó, no lo llames comun.

10 Y esto fué hecho por tres veces, y volvió todo á ser recibido arriba en el cielo.

that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the mame of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

CHAPTER, XI.

ND the apostles and brethren that were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. 2 And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, 3 Saying, Thou wentestinto 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 Iwas 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 mothing common or unclean hath at anytime entered into my mouth. 9 But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou COImIT1On. 10 And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven.

11 Y he aquí que luego llegaron tres varones á la casa en donde yo estaba, enviados á mí de Cesarea.

12 Y el Espíritu me dijó, que me fuese con ellos sin dudar nada. Y vinieron tambien conmigo estos seis hermanos. Y entramos en casa de aquelvaron. 13. El cual nos contó, como había visto un ángel en su casa, que se paró, y le dijó: Envia á Joppe, y haz venir á un cierto Simon, que tiene por sobrenombre Pedro. 14 Quiente hablará palabras, por las cuales serás salvo tú, y toda tu C3, S8,. 15 Y cuando comenzó á hablar, descendió el Espíritu Santo sobre ellos, como sobre nosotros al princuplo. 16 Y me acordé entonces de las palabras del Señor que dijó: Juan en verdad bautizó en agua, mas vosotros sereís bautizados en Espíritu Santo. 17 Pues si Dios les dió el mismo don que á nosotros que hemos creido en el Señor Jesu-Christo; ¿quien erá yo que pudiese estorbará Dios?

18 Entonces oidas estas cosas, callaron, y glorificaron á Dios, diciendo: claro está que Dios tambien ha concedido arrepentimiento á los Gentiles para vida. 19 Y los que habían sido esparcidos por la tribulacion, que se levantó á causa de Estevan, llegaron hásta Phenicia, y Chipre, y Antiochía, no predicando á otros la palabra sino solo á los Judios. 20 Y algunos de ellos eran de Chipre, y de Cirene, los cuales cuando entraron en Antiochía, hablaron tambien á los Griegos, predicando el Señor Jesus. 21 Y la mano del Señor erá con ellos, y un gran número creyendo se convirtieron al Señor. 22 Y llegó la fama de estas cosas á oidos de la Iglesia que esta

11 And, behold, immediatelythere were three men already come unto the house where I was, sent from Cesarea unto me. 12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothingdoubting. 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

24 Porque erá varon bueno, y lleno de Espíritu Santo y de fé. Y se allegó al Señor gran número de gentes. 25 Y partió Barnabas á Tarso en busca de Saulo. 26 Y cuando le hubo hallado, le llevó á Antiochía. Y aconteció que por el espacio de un año entero, se juntaron en aquella Iglesia enseñando á un gran número de gentes. Y los discípulos fueron primeramente llamados Christianos en Antiochía. 27 Y en estos dias descendieron de Jerusalem á Antiochía unos profetas. 28 Y levantandose uno de ellos llamado Agabo, daba á entender por Espíritu, que había de haber una grande hambre en toda la tierra. La cual vinó en tiempo de Claudio Cesar. 29 Y los discípulos cada uno segun sus facultades, determinaron enviar socorros á los hermanos que moraban en Judéa. 30 Lo que asímismo executaron, enviandolos á los Ancianos por mano de Barnabas, y de Saulo.

CAPITULO XII.

EN el mismo tiempo el Rey Herodes estendió sus manos para maltratará algunos de la Iglesia. 2 Y mató á cuchillo á Jacobo hermanb de Juan. 3 Y viendo que había agradado á los Judios, procedió tambien á prender á Pedro, y eran los dias de los panes ázimos. 4. Y habiendole hecho prender le pusó en la carcel, entregandole á

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 eleave unto the Lord. 24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and offaith: and much people was added unto the Lord. 25 Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: 26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

27 o And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. 28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Cesar. 29 Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judea : 30 Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

CHAPTER XII.

OW 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 de

livered 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.
