“But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or vncleane hath at any time entred into my mouth.”
King James Version (KJV)
5. I was in the citie of Ioppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision, a certaine vessell descend, as it had beene a great sheete, let downe from heauen by foure corners, and it came euen to me. 6. Upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw foure footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and foules of the aire. 7. And I heard a voyce, saying vnto me, Arise Peter, slay, and eate. 8. But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or vncleane hath at any time entred into my mouth. 9. But the voyce answered me againe from heauen, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 10. And this was done three times: and all were drawen vp againe into heauen. 11. And behold, immediately there were three men already come vnto the house where I was, sent from Cesarea vnto me.
