Acts 12:3-19

And
<2532>
because he saw
<1492> (5631)
it
<3754>
pleased
<2076> (5748) <701>
the Jews
<2453>_,
he proceeded further
<4369> (5639)
to take
<4815> (5629)
Peter
<4074>
also
<2532>_.
(Then
<1161>
were
<2258> (5713)
the days
<2250>
of unleavened bread
<106>.)
And
<3739> <2532>
when he had apprehended
<4084> (5660)
him, he put
<5087> (5639)
[him] in
<1519>
prison
<5438>_,
and delivered
<3860> (5631)
[him] to four
<5064>
quaternions
<5069>
of soldiers
<4757>
to keep
<5442> (5721)
him
<846>_;
intending
<1014> (5740)
after
<3326>
Easter
<3957>
to bring
<321> (0)
him
<846>
forth
<321> (5629)
to the people
<2992>_.
{Easter: Gr. Passover} {quaternions: a file of four soldiers}
Peter
<4074> <3303>
therefore
<3767>
was kept
<5083> (5712)
in
<1722>
prison
<5438>_:
but
<1161>
prayer
<4335>
was
<2258> (5713)
made
<1096> (5740)
without ceasing
<1618>
of
<5259>
the church
<1577>
unto
<4314>
God
<2316>
for
<5228>
him
<846>_.
{prayer...: or, instant and earnest prayer was made}
And
<1161>
when
<3753>
Herod
<2264>
would
<3195> (5707)
have brought
<4254> (0)
him
<846>
forth
<4254> (5721)_,
the same
<1565>
night
<3571>
Peter
<4074>
was
<2258> (5713)
sleeping
<2837> (5746)
between
<3342>
two
<1417>
soldiers
<4757>_,
bound
<1210> (5772)
with two
<1417>
chains
<254>_:
and
<5037>
the keepers
<5441>
before
<4253>
the door
<2374>
kept
<5083> (5707)
the prison
<5438>_.
And
<2532>_,
behold
<2400> (5628)_,
the angel
<32>
of the Lord
<2962>
came upon
<2186> (5627)
[him], and
<2532>
a light
<5457>
shined
<2989> (5656)
in
<1722>
the prison
<3612>_:
and
<1161>
he smote
<3960> (5660)
Peter
<4074>
on the side
<4125>_,
and raised
<1453> (0)
him
<846>
up
<1453> (5656)_,
saying
<3004> (5723)_,
Arise up
<450> (5628)
quickly
<1722> <5034>_.
And
<2532>
his
<846>
chains
<254>
fell off
<1601> (5627)
from
<1537>
[his] hands
<5495>_.
And
<5037>
the angel
<32>
said
<2036> (5627)
unto
<4314>
him
<846>_,
Gird thyself
<4024> (5669)_,
and
<2532>
bind on
<5265> (5669)
thy
<4675>
sandals
<4547>_.
And
<1161>
so
<3779>
he did
<4160> (5656)_.
And
<2532>
he saith
<3004> (5719)
unto him
<846>_,
Cast
<4016> (0)
thy garment
<2440>
about
<4016> (5640)
thee
<4675>_,
and
<2532>
follow
<190> (5720)
me
<3427>_.
And
<2532>
he went out
<1831> (5631)_,
and followed
<190> (5707)
him
<846>_;
and
<2532>
wist
<1492> (5715)
not
<3756>
that
<3754>
it was
<2076> (5748)
true
<227>
which
<3588>
was done
<1096> (5740)
by
<1223>
the angel
<32>_;
but
<1161>
thought
<1380> (5707)
he saw
<991> (5721)
a vision
<3705>_.
When
<1161>
they were past
<1330> (5631)
the first
<4413>
and
<2532>
the second
<1208>
ward
<5438>_,
they came
<2064> (5627)
unto
<1909>
the iron
<4603>
gate
<4439>
that leadeth
<5342> (5723)
unto
<1519>
the city
<4172>_;
which
<3748>
opened
<455> (5681)
to them
<846>
of his own accord
<844>_:
and
<2532>
they went out
<1831> (5631)_,
and passed on through
<4281> (5627)
one
<3391>
street
<4505>_;
and
<2532>
forthwith
<2112>
the angel
<32>
departed
<868> (5627)
from
<575>
him
<846>_.
And
<2532>
when Peter
<4074>
was come
<1096> (5637)
to
<1722>
himself
<1438>_,
he said
<2036> (5627)_,
Now
<3568>
I know
<1492> (5758)
of a surety
<230>_,
that
<3754>
the Lord
<2962>
hath sent
<1821> (5656)
his
<846>
angel
<32>_,
and
<2532>
hath delivered
<1807> (5639)
me
<3165>
out of
<1537>
the hand
<5495>
of Herod
<2264>_,
and
<2532>
[from] all
<3956>
the expectation
<4329>
of the people
<2992>
of the Jews
<2453>_.
And
<5037>
when he had considered
<4894> (5631)
[the thing], he came
<2064> (5627)
to
<1909>
the house
<3614>
of Mary
<3137>
the mother
<3384>
of John
<2491>_,
whose surname was
<1941> (5746)
Mark
<3138>_;
where
<3757>
many
<2425>
were
<2258> (5713)
gathered together
<4867> (5772)
praying
<2532> <4336> (5740)_.
And
<1161>
as Peter
<4074>
knocked at
<2925> (5660)
the door
<2374>
of the gate
<4440>_,
a damsel
<3814>
came
<4334> (5627)
to hearken
<5219> (5658)_,
named
<3686>
Rhoda
<4498>_.
{to hearken: or, to ask who was there}
And
<2532>
when she knew
<1921> (5631)
Peter's
<4074>
voice
<5456>_,
she opened
<455> (5656)
not
<3756>
the gate
<4440>
for
<575>
gladness
<5479>_,
but
<1161>
ran in
<1532> (5631)_,
and told how
<518> (5656)
Peter
<4074>
stood
<2476> (5760)
before
<4253>
the gate
<4440>_.
And
<1161>
they said
<2036> (5627)
unto
<4314>
her
<846>_,
Thou art mad
<3105> (5736)_.
But
<1161>
she constantly affirmed
<1340> (5711)
that it was
<2192> (5721)
even so
<3779>_.
Then
<1161>
said they
<3004> (5707)_,
It is
<2076> (5748)
his
<846>
angel
<32>_.
But
<1161>
Peter
<4074>
continued
<1961> (5707)
knocking
<2925> (5723)_:
and
<1161>
when they had opened
<455> (5660)
[the door], and saw
<1492> (5627)
him
<846>_,

<2532>
they were astonished
<1839> (5627)_.
But
<1161>
he, beckoning
<2678> (5660)
unto them
<846>
with the hand
<5495>
to hold their peace
<4601> (5721)_,
declared
<1334> (5662)
unto them
<846>
how
<4459>
the Lord
<2962>
had brought
<1806> (5627)
him
<846>
out of
<1537>
the prison
<5438>_.
And
<1161>
he said
<2036> (5627)_,
Go shew
<518> (5657)
these things
<5023>
unto James
<2385>_,
and
<2532>
to the brethren
<80>_.
And
<2532>
he departed
<1831> (5631)_,
and went
<4198> (5675)
into
<1519>
another
<2087>
place
<5117>_.
Now
<1161>
as soon as it was
<1096> (5637)
day
<2250>_,
there was
<2258> (5713)
no
<3756>
small
<3641>
stir
<5017>
among
<1722>
the soldiers
<4757>_,
what
<5101> <686>
was become
<1096> (5633)
of Peter
<4074>_.
And
<1161>
when
<1934> (0)
Herod
<2264>
had sought for
<1934> (5660)
him
<846>_,
and
<2532>
found him
<2147> (5631)
not
<3361>_,
he examined
<350> (5660)
the keepers
<5441>_,
and commanded
<2753> (5656)
that [they] should be put to death
<520> (5683)_.
And
<2532>
he went down
<2718> (5631)
from
<575>
Judaea
<2449>
to
<1519>
Caesarea
<2542>_,
and [there] abode
<1304> (5707)_.
