7. And after that the angel which spake to Cornelius was departed, he called two of his servants, and a godly soldier, of those
which did wait on him: 8. And when he had told them all things, he sent them to Joppa. 9. On the morrow, as they journeyed, and drew nigh to the city, Peter went up into the highest part of the house to pray, about
the sixth hour; 10. And he was fasting; therefore he would eat. And in the
mean season, while they made ready, there fell upon him an excess of mind.
11. He saw heaven open, and a vessel coming down upon him like to a great sheet, knit at the four corners, and let down to the
earth; 12. Wherein were all four-footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and birds of heaven. 13. And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill and eat. 14. And Peter said, Not so, Lord; because I have never eaten any common or unclean thing. 15. And the voice said to him again, Make not thou
those things common which God hath made clean. 16. And this was done thrice; and the vessel was taken up again into heaven.
