12:1 Now [G1161] about [G2596] that [G1565] time [G2540] Herod [G2264] the king [G935] stretched forth [G1911] [his] hands [G5495] to vex [G2559] certain [G5100] of [G575] the church [G1577] .(stretched: or, began)
12:2 And [G1161] he killed [G337] James [G2385] the brother [G80] of John [G2491] with the sword [G3162] .
12:3 And [G2532] because he saw [G1492] it [G3754] pleased [G2076] [G701] the Jews [G2453] , he proceeded further [G4369] to take [G4815] Peter [G4074] also [G2532] . (Then [G1161] were [G2258] the days [G2250] of unleavened bread [G106] .)
12:4 And [G3739] [G2532] when he had apprehended [G4084] him, he put [G5087] [him] in [G1519] prison [G5438] , and delivered [G3860] [him] to four [G5064] quaternions [G5069] of soldiers [G4757] to keep [G5442] him [G846] ; intending [G1014] after [G3326] Easter [G3957] to bring [G321] him [G846] forth [G321] to the people [G2992] .(Easter: Gr.

12:5 Peter [G4074] [G3303] therefore [G3767] was kept [G5083] in [G1722] prison [G5438] : but [G1161] prayer [G4335] was [G2258] made [G1096] without ceasing [G1618] of [G5259] the church [G1577] unto [G4314] God [G2316] for [G5228] him [G846] .(prayer: or, instant and earnest prayer was made)
12:6 And [G1161] when [G3753] Herod [G2264] would [G3195] have brought [G4254] him [G846] forth [G4254] , the same [G1565] night [G3571] Peter [G4074] was [G2258] sleeping [G2837] between [G3342] two [G1417] soldiers [G4757] , bound [G1210] with two [G1417] chains [G254] : and [G5037] the keepers [G5441] before [G4253] the door [G2374] kept [G5083] the prison [G5438] .
12:7 And [G2532] , behold [G2400] , the angel [G32] of the Lord [G2962] came upon [G2186] [him], and [G2532] a light [G5457] shined [G2989] in [G1722] the prison [G3612] : and [G1161] he smote [G3960] Peter [G4074] on the side [G4125] , and raised [G1453] him [G846] up [G1453] , saying [G3004] , Arise up [G450] quickly [G1722] [G5034] . And [G2532] his [G846] chains [G254] fell off [G1601] from [G1537] [his] hands [G5495] .
12:8 And [G5037] the angel [G32] said [G2036] unto [G4314] him [G846] , Gird thyself [G4024] , and [G2532] bind on [G5265] thy [G4675] sandals [G4547] . And [G1161] so [G3779] he did [G4160] . And [G2532] he saith [G3004] unto him [G846] , Cast [G4016] thy garment [G2440] about [G4016] thee [G4675] , and [G2532] follow [G190] me [G3427] .
12:9 And [G2532] he went out [G1831] , and followed [G190] him [G846] ; and [G2532] wist [G1492] not [G3756] that [G3754] it was [G2076] true [G227] which [G3588] was done [G1096] by [G1223] the angel [G32] ; but [G1161] thought [G1380] he saw [G991] a vision [G3705] .
12:10 When [G1161] they were past [G1330] the first [G4413] and [G2532] the second [G1208] ward [G5438] , they came [G2064] unto [G1909] the iron [G4603] gate [G4439] that leadeth [G5342] unto [G1519] the city [G4172] ; which [G3748] opened [G455] to them [G846] of his own accord [G844] : and [G2532] they went out [G1831] , and passed on through [G4281] one [G3391] street [G4505] ; and [G2532] forthwith [G2112] the angel [G32] departed [G868] from [G575] him [G846] .
12:11 And [G2532] when Peter [G4074] was come [G1096] to [G1722] himself [G1438] , he said [G2036] , Now [G3568] I know [G1492] of a surety [G230] , that [G3754] the Lord [G2962] hath sent [G1821] his [G846] angel [G32] , and [G2532] hath delivered [G1807] me [G3165] out of [G1537] the hand [G5495] of Herod [G2264] , and [G2532] [from] all [G3956] the expectation [G4329] of the people [G2992] of the Jews [G2453] .
12:12 And [G5037] when he had considered [G4894] [the thing], he came [G2064] to [G1909] the house [G3614] of Mary [G3137] the mother [G3384] of John [G2491] , whose surname was [G1941] Mark [G3138] ; where [G3757] many [G2425] were [G2258] gathered together [G4867] praying [G2532] [G4336] .
12:13 And [G1161] as Peter [G4074] knocked at [G2925] the door [G2374] of the gate [G4440] , a damsel [G3814] came [G4334] to hearken [G5219] , named [G3686] Rhoda [G4498] .(to hearken: or, to ask who was there)
12:14 And [G2532] when she knew [G1921] Peter's [G4074] voice [G5456] , she opened [G455] not [G3756] the gate [G4440] for [G575] gladness [G5479] , but [G1161] ran in [G1532] , and told how [G518] Peter [G4074] stood [G2476] before [G4253] the gate [G4440] .
12:15 And [G1161] they said [G2036] unto [G4314] her [G846] , Thou art mad [G3105] . But [G1161] she constantly affirmed [G1340] that it was [G2192] even so [G3779] . Then [G1161] said they [G3004] , It is [G2076] his [G846] angel [G32] .
12:16 But [G1161] Peter [G4074] continued [G1961] knocking [G2925] : and [G1161] when they had opened [G455] [the door], and saw [G1492] him [G846] , [G2532] they were astonished [G1839] .
12:17 But [G1161] he, beckoning [G2678] unto them [G846] with the hand [G5495] to hold their peace [G4601] , declared [G1334] unto them [G846] how [G4459] the Lord [G2962] had brought [G1806] him [G846] out of [G1537] the prison [G5438] . And [G1161] he said [G2036] , Go shew [G518] these things [G5023] unto James [G2385] , and [G2532] to the brethren [G80] . And [G2532] he departed [G1831] , and went [G4198] into [G1519] another [G2087] place [G5117] .
12:18 Now [G1161] as soon as it was [G1096] day [G2250] , there was [G2258] no [G3756] small [G3641] stir [G5017] among [G1722] the soldiers [G4757] , what [G5101] [G686] was become [G1096] of Peter [G4074] .
12:19 And [G1161] when [G1934] Herod [G2264] had sought for [G1934] him [G846] , and [G2532] found him [G2147] not [G3361] , he examined [G350] the keepers [G5441] , and commanded [G2753] that [they] should be put to death [G520] . And [G2532] he went down [G2718] from [G575] Judaea [G2449] to [G1519] Caesarea [G2542] , and [there] abode [G1304] .
12:20 And [G1161] Herod [G2264] was [G2258] highly displeased [G2371] with them of Tyre [G5183] and [G2532] Sidon [G4606] : but [G1161] they came [G3918] with one accord [G3661] to [G4314] him [G846] , and [G2532] , having made [G3982] Blastus [G986] the king's [G935] chamberlain [G1909] [G2846] their friend [G3982] , desired [G154] peace [G1515] ; because [G1223] their [G846] country [G5561] was nourished [G5142] by [G575] the king's [G937] [country].(was highly: or, bare an hostile mind, intending war)(the king's chamberlain: Gr. that was over the king's bedchamber)
12:21 And [G1161] upon a set [G5002] day [G2250] Herod [G2264] , arrayed [G1746] in royal [G937] apparel [G2066] , sat [G2523] upon [G1909] his throne [G968] , and [G2532] made an oration [G1215] unto [G4314] them [G846] .
12:22 And [G1161] the people [G1218] gave a shout [G2019] , [saying, It is] the voice [G5456] of a god [G2316] , and [G2532] not [G3756] of a man [G444] .
12:23 And [G1161] immediately [G3916] the angel [G32] of the Lord [G2962] smote [G3960] him [G846] , because [G473] [G3739] he gave [G1325] not [G3756] God [G2316] the glory [G1391] : and [G2532] he was [G1096] eaten of worms [G4662] , and gave up the ghost [G1634] .
12:24 But [G1161] the word [G3056] of God [G2316] grew [G837] and [G2532] multiplied [G4129] .
12:25 And [G1161] Barnabas [G921] and [G2532] Saul [G4569] returned [G5290] from [G1537] Jerusalem [G2419] , when they had fulfilled [G4137] [their] ministry [G1248] , and [G2532] took with them [G4838] John [G2491] , whose surname was [G1941] Mark [G3138] .(ministry: or, charge)
