“But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the doore, and saw him, they were astonished.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 18. Now assoone as it was day, there was no smal stirre among the souldiers, what was become of Peter. 19. And when Herode had sought for him, and found him not, hee examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And hee went downe from Iudea to Cesarea, & there abode.
