King James Version

Acts 10:1-48

1There was a certain man in Cæsarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 2A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. 3He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 4And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. 5And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter: 6He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do. 7And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually; 8And when he had declared all these things unto them, he sent them to Joppa.

9¶ On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: 10And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, 11And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: 12Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 13And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. 14But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 15And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. 16This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven. 17Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate, 18And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there.

19¶ While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. 20Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them. 21Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come? 22And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee. 23Then called he them in, and lodged them. And on the morrow Peter went away with them, and certain brethren from Joppa accompanied him. 24And the morrow after they entered into Cæsarea. And Cornelius waited for them, and had called together his kinsmen and near friends. 25And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. 26But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man. 27And as he talked with him, he went in, and found many that were come together. 28And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. 29Therefore came I unto you without gainsaying, as soon as I was sent for: I ask therefore for what intent ye have sent for me? 30And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing, 31And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. 32Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee. 33Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.

34¶ Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. 36The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) 37That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judæa, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; 38How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. 39And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: 40Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly; 41Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. 42And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. 43To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

44¶ While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? 48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Ebikolwa byʼAbatume 10:1-48

Koluneeriyo Atumya Peetero

110:1 Bik 8:40Awo mu kibuga Kayisaliya mwalimu omusajja omuserikale, erinnya lye Koluneeriyo, eyakuliranga ekitongole ky’abaserikale ekikumi ekyayitibwanga Ekitaliano. 210:2 nny 22, 35; Bik 13:16, 26Yali ayagala nnyo Katonda era ng’amusaamu nnyo ekitiibwa, ye n’ab’omu maka ge bonna, ng’agabira nnyo abaavu, era ng’asaba Katonda bulijjo. 310:3 a Bik 3:1 b Bik 9:10 c Bik 5:19Lwali lumu ku ssaawa nga mwenda ez’olweggulo, n’ayolesebwa, n’alabira ddala malayika wa Katonda ng’ajja gy’ali, n’amuyita nti, “Koluneeriyo!”

410:4 a Mat 26:13 b Kub 8:4Koluneeriyo n’amutunuulira enkaliriza ng’atidde nnyo. N’amubuuza nti, “Mukama wange, ogamba ki?”

Malayika n’amuddamu nti, “Katonda awulidde okusaba kwo era alabye nga bw’ogabira abaavu bw’atyo n’akujjukira. 510:5 Bik 9:36Kale nno, tuma basajja bo e Yopa bakimeyo omuntu erinnya lye Simooni era ayitibwa Peetero ajje akukyalire. 610:6 Bik 9:43Abeera wa Simooni omuwazi w’amaliba, era enju ye eri ku lubalama lw’ennyanja.”

7Malayika yali yaakagenda, Koluneeriyo n’ayita abaweereza be babiri n’omuserikale atya Katonda, omu ku baweereza, 810:8 Bik 9:36n’abannyonnyola byonna ebibaddewo, n’abatuma e Yopa.

Peetero Alabikirwa

910:9 Mat 24:17Ku lunaku olwaddirira bwe baali basemberera ekibuga, essaawa zaali ziwera nga mukaaga ez’omu ttuntu, Peetero n’alinnya waggulu ku kasolya k’ennyumba akaali akatereevu, okusaba. 1010:10 Bik 22:17Yali ali eyo enjala n’emuluma, naye bwe baali bamuteekerateekera ekyokulya embeera ye n’ewaanyisibwa n’ayolesebwa. 11N’alaba eggulu nga libikkuse, ekintu ekifaanana ng’essuuka ennene ennyo, nga kinywezebbwa ku nsonda zaakyo ennya, nga kikka wansi ku ttaka. 12Kyalimu ebisolo ebirina amagulu ana byonna, n’ebyewalula byonna eby’oku nsi n’ennyonyi zonna ez’omu bbanga. 13Awo n’awulira eddoboozi nga ligamba nti, “Peetero, situka osale, olye!”

1410:14 a Bik 9:5 b Lv 11:4-8, 13-20; 20:25; Ma 14:3-20; Ez 4:14Peetero n’addamu nti, “Nedda, Mukama wange, kubanga siryanga ku kintu kya muzizo oba ekitali kirongoofu.”

1510:15 Mat 15:11; Bar 14:14, 17, 20; 1Ko 10:25; 1Ti 4:3, 4; Tit 1:15Eddoboozi ne liddamu okwogera naye omulundi ogwokubiri nti, “Ekyo Katonda ky’amaze okulongoosa tokiyitanga ekitali kirongoofu.”

16Ne kiba bwe kityo emirundi esatu, amangwago ekintu ekyo ekiri ng’essuuka ne kizzibwayo mu ggulu.

1710:17 nny 7, 8Peetero n’abeera awo ng’asamaaliridde. Ne yeebuuza amakulu g’okwolesebwa okwo, ne yeebuuza ne ky’asaana okukola, byonna nga bimusobedde. Mu kiseera ekyo ababaka abaatumibwa Koluneeriyo, ennyumba baali baakagizuula era nga bayimiridde wabweru ku luggi 18nga babuuza obanga awo Simooni ayitibwa Peetero we yabeeranga.

1910:19 Bik 8:29Awo Peetero bwe yali ng’akyebuuza eby’okwolesebwa okwo, Mwoyo Mutukuvu n’amugamba nti, “Laba, abasajja basatu bakunoonya. 2010:20 Bik 15:7-9Situka okke wansi ogende nabo awatali kulwa kubanga nze mbatumye.”

21Bw’atyo Peetero n’akka wansi, n’agamba abasajja abaatumibwa nti, “Ye nze gwe munoonya. Kiki ekibaleese?”

2210:22 a nny 2 b Bik 11:14Ne bamuddamu nti, “Koluneeriyo omukulu w’ekitongole y’atutumye. Musajja mwegendereza, atya Katonda era Abayudaaya bonna bamussaamu ekitiibwa. Yalabikirwa malayika wa Katonda n’amugamba akuyite ojje mu nnyumba ye omutegeeze Katonda by’ayagala akole.” 2310:23 a Bik 1:16 b nny 45; Bik 11:12Awo Peetero n’abayingiza mu nnyumba ne basulawo ekiro ekyo. Enkeera n’agenda n’abo ng’awerekerwako abooluganda abamu ab’omu Yopa.

Peetero mu maka ga Koluneeriyo

2410:24 Bik 8:40Ku lunaku olwaddirira Peetero n’atuuka e Kayisaliya. Yasanga Koluneeriyo amulindiridde, ng’ali ne baganda be ne mikwano gye be yayita balabe Peetero. 25Peetero bwe yayingira mu nnyumba, Koluneeriyo n’agwa wansi mu maaso ge n’amusinza. 2610:26 Bik 14:15; Kub 19:10Naye Peetero n’amuyimusa n’amugamba nti, “Golokoka! Nange ndi muntu buntu.”

27N’agolokoka ne boogeramu, ne bayingira munda mu kisenge abalala bangi mwe baali bakuŋŋaanidde. 2810:28 a Yk 4:9; 18:28; Bik 11:3 b Bik 15:8, 9Awo Peetero n’abagamba nti, “Mumanyi nga mu mateeka gaffe ag’Ekiyudaaya, ffe tetuyingira mu maka g’Abamawanga. Naye Katonda yandaze mu kwolesebwa nga sisaanira kuddayo kuyisa muntu yenna ng’atali mulongoofu. 29Noolwekyo olwantumira nange ne nsitukiramu. Kale, ompitidde nsonga ki?”

30Awo Koluneeriyo n’addamu nti, “Ennaku nnya eziyise, nnali mu nnyumba yange nga nsaba mu ssaawa nga bwe ziti omwenda ez’olweggulo. Amangwago omusajja n’ayimirira mu maaso gange ng’ayambadde engoye ezitemagana. 31N’aŋŋamba nti, ‘Koluneeriyo, Katonda awulidde okusaba kwo, era ajjukidde ebirabo byo by’ogabira abaavu. 32Kale nno, tuma e Yopa, oyite Simooni ayitibwa Peetero, eyakyala mu maka ga Simooni omuwazi w’amaliba ali ku lubalama lw’ennyanja.’ 33Bwe ntyo ne nkutumira mangu, era naawe n’okola bulungi n’ojjirawo. Kaakano ffenna tuli wano mu maaso ga Katonda nga tulindirira okuwulira ky’akutumye okutubuulira!”

3910:39 a Luk 24:48 b Bik 5:30“Ffe bajulirwa ab’ebyo byonna bye yakola mu nsi y’Abayudaaya ne mu Yerusaalemi, gye yattirwa ku musaalaba. 4010:40 Bik 2:24Oyo Katonda yamuzuukiza ku lunaku olwokusatu era n’amulaga eri abantu. 4110:41 a Yk 14:17, 22 b Luk 24:43; Yk 21:13Teyalabibwa bantu bonna, wabula abajulirwa Katonda be yali amaze okulonda, be baffe abaalya naye, ne tunywa naye ng’amaze okuzuukira mu bafu. 4210:42 a Mat 28:19, 20 b Yk 5:22; Bik 17:31N’atutuma okubuulira abantu Enjiri nga tujulira nti Yesu y’oyo, Katonda gwe yalonda okubeera omulamuzi w’abantu bonna, abalamu n’abafu. 4310:43 a Is 53:11 b Bik 15:9Era ne bannabbi bonna bamuweera obujulirwa nti buli amukkiriza asonyiyibwa ebibi mu linnya lye.”

44Awo Peetero bwe yali akyayogera ebigambo ebyo, Mwoyo Mutukuvu n’akka ku abo bonna abali bawuliriza ekigambo! 4510:45 a Bik 2:33, 38 b Bik 11:18Abakkiriza abakomole bangi abaawerekera ku Peetero ne beewuunya nnyo okulaba ng’ekirabo kya Mwoyo Mutukuvu kifukibbwa ne ku baamawanga. 4610:46 Mak 16:17Kubanga baabawulira nga boogera mu nnimi endala nga batendereza Katonda.

Awo Peetero n’agamba nti, 4710:47 a Bik 8:36 b Bik 11:17“Waliwo ayinza okuziyiza abantu bano okubatizibwa n’amazzi abafunye Mwoyo Mutukuvu nga ffe bwe twamufuna?” 4810:48 Bik 2:38; 8:16Bw’atyo n’alagira babatizibwe mu linnya lya Yesu Kristo. Ne basaba Peetero agira abeera nabo okumala ennaku ntonotono.
