Gentiles Hear the Good News
34 Then Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality,
34, 35. Peter opened his mouth—(See on Mt 5:2).
Of a truth I perceive—that is, "I have it now demonstrated before mine eyes."
that God is no respecter of persons—Not, "I see there is no capricious favoritism with God," for Peter would never imagine such a thing; but (as the next clause shows), "I see that God has respect only to personal character and state in the acceptance of men, national and ecclesiastical distinctions being of no account."
