Acts 11:8
Context
Peter Reports to the Church at Jerusalem

1And the apostles and brothers that were in Judaea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. 2And when Peter was come up to Jerusalem, they that were of the circumcision contended with him, 3Saying, You went in to men uncircumcised, and did eat with them. 4But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order to them, saying, 5I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me: 6On the which when I had fastened my eyes, I considered, and saw four footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 7And I heard a voice saying to me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat. 8But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean has at any time entered into my mouth. 9But the voice answered me again from heaven, What God has cleansed, that call not you common. 10And this was done three times: and all were drawn up again into heaven. 11And, behold, immediately there were three men already come to the house where I was, sent from Caesarea to me. 12And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. Moreover these six brothers accompanied me, and we entered into the man's house: 13And he showed us how he had seen an angel in his house, which stood and said to him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; 14Who shall tell you words, whereby you and all your house shall be saved. 15And as I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. 16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17For as much then as God gave them the like gift as he did to us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then has God also to the Gentiles granted repentance to life.
