“And when she knew Peters voice, she opened not the gate for gladnes, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.”
King James Version (KJV)
11. And when Peter was come to himselfe, hee said, Now I know of a suretie, that the Lord hath sent his Angel, and hath deliuered mee out of the hand of Herode, and from all the expectation of the people of the Iewes. 12. And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of Iohn whose sirname was Marke, where many were gathered together praying. 13. And as Peter knocked at the doore of the gate, a damosell came to hearken, named Rhoda. 14. And when she knew Peters voice, she opened not the gate for gladnes, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate. 15. And they said vnto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was euen so. Then said they, It it his Angel. 16. But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the doore, and saw him, they were astonished. 17. But he beckening vnto them with the hand, to hold their peace, declared vnto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison: And he said, Goe shew these things vnto Iames, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.
