THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES - Chapter 10 - Verse 25

Verse 25. Fell down at his feet. This was an act of profound regard for him as an ambassador of God. In Oriental countries it was usual to prostrate themselves at length on the ground before men of rank and honour.

Worshipped him. This does not mean religious grinage, but civil respect; the homage, or profound regard, which was due to one in honour. See Barnes "Mt 2:2".

 

{+} "worshipped him" "Did obeisance"
