Acts 11 (WEBP)

[1] Now the apostles and the brothers§ who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God.
[2] When Peter had come up to Jerusalem, those who were of the circumcision contended with him,
[3] saying, “You went in to uncircumcised men and ate with them!”
[4] But Peter began, and explained to them in order, saying,
[5] “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision: a certain container descending, like it was a great sheet let down from heaven by four corners. It came as far as me.
[6] When I had looked intently at it, I considered, and saw the four-footed animals of the earth, wild animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky.
[7] I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Rise, Peter, kill and eat!’
[8] But I said, ‘Not so, Lord, for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered into my mouth.’
[9] But a voice answered me the second time out of heaven, ‘What God has cleansed, don’t you call unclean.’
[10] This was done three times, and all were drawn up again into heaven.
[11] Behold, immediately three men stood before the house where I was, having been sent from Caesarea to me.
[12] The Spirit told me to go with them without discriminating. These six brothers also accompanied me, and we entered into the man’s house.
[13] He told us how he had seen the angel standing in his house and saying to him, ‘Send to Joppa and get Simon, who is called Peter,
[14] who will speak to you words by which you will be saved, you and all your house.’
[15] As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them, even as on us at the beginning.
[16] I remembered the word of the Lord, how he said, ‘John indeed baptized in water, but you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit.’
[17] If then God gave to them the same gift as us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I, that I could withstand God?”
[18] When they heard these things, they held their peace and glorified God, saying, “Then God has also granted to the Gentiles repentance to life!”
[19] They therefore who were scattered abroad by the oppression that arose about Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except to Jews only.
[20] But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, spoke to the Hellenists,° preaching the Lord Jesus.
[21] The hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.
[22] The report concerning them came to the ears of the assembly which was in Jerusalem. They sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch,
[23] who, when he had come, and had seen the grace of God, was glad. He exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they should remain near to the Lord.
[24] For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith, and many people were added to the Lord.
[25] Barnabas went out to Tarsus to look for Saul.
[26] When he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they were gathered together with the assembly, and taught many people. The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.
[27] Now in these days, prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.
[28] One of them named Agabus stood up and indicated by the Spirit that there should be a great famine all over the world, which also happened in the days of Claudius.
[29] As any of the disciples had plenty, each determined to send relief to the brothers who lived in Judea;
[30] which they also did, sending it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

Acts 11:1 The word for “brothers” here and where context allows may also be correctly translated “brothers and sisters” or “siblings.”
Acts 11:20 A Hellenist is someone who keeps Greek customs and culture.

Acts 11 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 the apostles G652 and G2532 brethren G80 that were G5607 (PresPtc) in G2596 Judaea G2449 heard G191 (AorActInd) that G3754 the Gentiles G1484 had G1209 also G2532 received G1209 (AorMidDepInd) the word G3056 of God G2316.
[2] And G2532 when G3753 Peter G4074 was come up G305 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414, they that were of G1537 the circumcision G4061 contended G1252 (ImpfMidInd) with G4314 him G846,
[3] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), G3754 Thou wentest in G1525 (Aor2ActInd) to G4314 men G435 uncircumcised G203 G2192 (PresActPtc), and G2532 didst eat G4906 (Aor2ActInd) with them G846.
[4] But G1161 Peter G4074 rehearsed [the matter] from the beginning G756 (AorMidPtc), and expounded G1620 (ImpfMidInd) [it] by order G2517 unto them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[5] I G1473 was G2252 (ImpfInd) in G1722 the city G4172 of Joppa G2445 praying G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc): and G2532 in G1722 a trance G1611 I saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) a vision G3705, A certain G5100 vessel G4632 descend G2597 (PresActPtc), as it had been G5613 a great G3173 sheet G3607, let down G2524 (PresPasPtc) from G1537 heaven G3772 by four G5064 corners G746; and G2532 it came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) even G891 to me G1700:
[6] Upon G1519 the which G3739 when I had fastened mine eyes G816 (AorActPtc), I considered G2657 (ImpfActInd), and G2532 saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) fourfooted beasts G5074 of the earth G1093, and G2532 wild beasts G2342, and G2532 creeping things G2062, and G2532 fowls G4071 of the air G3772.
[7] And G1161 I heard G191 (AorActInd) a voice G5456 saying G3004 (PresActPtc) unto me G3427, Arise G450 (Aor2ActPtc), Peter G4074; slay G2380 (AorActImpr) and G2532 eat G5315 (Aor2ActImpr).
[8] But G1161 I said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Not so G3365, Lord G2962: for G3754 nothing G3956 common G2839 or G2228 unclean G169 hath G1525 at any time G3763 entered G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 my G3450 mouth G4750.
[9] But G1161 the voice G5456 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) me G3427 again G1537 G1208 from G1537 heaven G3772, What G3739 God G2316 hath cleansed G2511 (AorActInd), [that] call G2840 not G3361 thou G4771 common G2840 (PresActImpr).
[10] And G1161 this G5124 was done G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) G1909 three times G5151: and G2532 all G537 were drawn up G385 (AorPasInd) again G3825 into G1519 heaven G3772.
[11] And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), immediately G1824 there were G2186 three G5140 men G435 already G1824 come G2186 (Aor2ActInd) unto G1909 the house G3614 where G1722 G3739 G3739 I was G2252 (ImpfInd), sent G649 (PerfPasPtc) from G575 Caesarea G2542 unto G4314 me G3165.
[12] And G1161 the Spirit G4151 bade G2036 (Aor2ActInd) me G3427 go with G4905 (Aor2ActInf) them G846, nothing G3367 doubting G1252 (PresMidPtc). Moreover G1161 G2532 these G3778 six G1803 brethren G80 accompanied G4862 G2064 (Aor2ActInd) me G1698, and G2532 we entered G1525 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the man’s G435 house G3624:
[13] And G5037 he shewed G518 (AorActInd) us G2254 how G4459 he had seen G1492 (Aor2ActInd) an angel G32 in G1722 his G846 house G3624, which stood G2476 (AorPasPtc) and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActPtc) unto him G846, Send G649 (AorActImpr) men G435 to G1519 Joppa G2445, and G2532 call for G3343 (AorMidDepImpr) Simon G4613, whose surname is G1941 (PresPasPtc) Peter G4074;
[14] Who G3739 shall tell G2980 (FutActInd) thee G4314 G4571 words G4487, whereby G1722 G3739 thou G4771 and G2532 all G3956 thy G4675 house G3624 shall be saved G4982 (FutPasInd).
[15] And G1161 as G1722 I G3165 began G756 (AorMidInf) to speak G2980 (PresActInf), the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 fell G1968 (Aor2ActInd) on G1909 them G846, as G5618 G2532 on G1909 us G2248 at G1722 the beginning G746.
[16] Then G1161 remembered I G3415 (AorPasInd) the word G4487 of the Lord G2962, how G5613 that he said G3004 (ImpfActInd), John G2491 indeed G3303 baptized G907 (AorActInd) with water G5204; but G1161 ye G5210 shall be baptized G907 (FutPasInd) with G1722 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151.
[17] Forasmuch G1487 then G3767 as G5613 God G2316 gave G1325 (AorActInd) them G846 the like G2470 gift G1431 as G2532 [he did] unto us G2254, who believed G4100 (AorActPtc) on G1909 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547; G1161 what G5101 was G2252 (ImpfInd) I G1473, that I could G1415 withstand G2967 (AorActInf) God G2316?
[18] When G1161 they heard G191 (AorActPtc) these things G5023, they held their peace G2270 (AorActInd), and G2532 glorified G1392 (ImpfActInd) God G2316, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Then G686 hath G1325 God G2316 also G2534 to the Gentiles G1484 granted G1325 (AorActInd) repentance G3341 unto G1519 life G2222.
[19] Now G3767 G3303 they which were scattered abroad G1289 (Aor2PasPtc) upon G575 the persecution G2347 that arose G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) about G1909 Stephen G4736 travelled G1330 (Aor2ActInd) as far as G2193 Phenice G5403, and G2532 Cyprus G2954, and G2532 Antioch G490, preaching G2980 (PresActPtc) the word G3056 to none G3367 but G1508 unto the Jews G2453 only G3440.
[20] And G1161 some G5100 of G1537 them G846 were G2258 (ImpfInd) men G435 of Cyprus G2953 and G2532 Cyrene G2956, which G3748, when they were come G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) to G1519 Antioch G490, spake G2980 (ImpfActInd) unto G4314 the Grecians G1675, preaching G2097 (PresMidPtc) the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424.
[21] And G2532 the hand G5495 of the Lord G2962 was G2258 (ImpfInd) with G3326 them G846: and G5037 a great G4183 number G706 believed G4100 (AorActPtc), and turned G1994 (AorActInd) unto G1909 the Lord G2962.
[22] Then G1161 tidings G3056 of G4012 these things G846 came G191 (AorPasInd) unto G1519 the ears G3775 of the church G1577 which G3588 was in G1722 Jerusalem G2414: and G2532 they sent forth G1821 (AorActInd) Barnabas G921, that he should go G1330 (Aor2ActInf) as far as G2193 Antioch G490.
[23] Who G3739, when he came G3854 (Aor2MidDepPtc), and G2532 had seen G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) the grace G5485 of God G2316, was glad G5463 (Aor2PasDepInd), and G2532 exhorted G3870 (ImpfActInd) them all G3956, that with purpose G4286 of heart G2588 they would cleave unto G4357 (PresActInf) the Lord G2962.
[24] For G3754 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) a good G18 man G435, and G2532 full G4134 of the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 and G2532 of faith G4102: and G2532 much G2425 people G3793 was added G4369 (AorPasInd) unto the Lord G2962.
[25] Then G1161 departed G1831 (Aor2ActInd) Barnabas G921 to G1519 Tarsus G5019, for to seek G327 (AorActInf) Saul G4569:
[26] And G2532 when he had found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) him G846, he brought G71 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 unto G1519 Antioch G490. And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that a whole G3650 year G1763 they G846 assembled themselves G4863 (AorPasInf) with G1722 the church G1577, and G2532 taught G1321 (AorActInf) much G2425 people G3793. And G5037 the disciples G3101 were called G5537 (AorActInf) Christians G5546 first G4412 in G1722 Antioch G490.
[27] And G1161 in G1722 these G5025 days G2250 came G2718 (Aor2ActInd) prophets G4396 from G575 Jerusalem G2414 unto G1519 Antioch G490.
[28] And G1161 there stood up G450 (Aor2ActPtc) one G1520 of G1537 them G846 named G3686 Agabus G13, and signified G4591 (AorActInd) by G1223 the Spirit G4151 that there should be G3195 (PresActInf) G1510 (FutInf) great G3173 dearth G3042 throughout G1909 all G3650 the world G3625: which G3748 G2532 came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) in the days of G1909 Claudius G2804 Caesar G2541.
[29] Then G1161 the disciples G3101, every G1538 man G846 according to G2531 his ability G2141 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) G5100, determined G3724 (AorActInd) to send G3992 (AorActInf) relief G1248 unto G1519 the brethren G80 which dwelt G2730 (PresActPtc) in G1722 Judaea G2449:
[30] Which G3739 also G2532 they did G4160 (AorActInd), and sent it G649 (AorActPtc) to G4314 the elders G4245 by G1223 the hands G5495 of Barnabas G921 and G2532 Saul G4569.

Young’s Literal Translation

Acts 11 (YLT)

[1] And the apostles and the brethren who are in Judea heard that also the nations did receive the word of God,
[2] and when Peter came up to Jerusalem, those of the circumcision were contending with him,
[3] saying-‘Unto men uncircumcised thou didst go in, and didst eat with them!’
[4] And Peter having begun, did expound to them in order saying,
[5] ‘I was in the city of Joppa praying, and I saw in a trance a vision, a certain vessel coming down, as a great sheet by four corners being let down out of the heaven, and it came unto me;
[6] at which having looked stedfastly, I was considering, and I saw the four-footed beasts of the earth, and the wild beasts, and the creeping things, and the fowls of heaven;
[7] and I heard a voice saying to me, Having risen, Peter, slay and eat;
[8] and I said, Not so, Lord; because anything common or unclean hath at no time entered into my mouth;
[9] and a voice did answer me a second time out of the heaven, What God did cleanse, thou-declare not thou common.
[10] ‘And this happened thrice, and again was all drawn up to the heaven,
[11] and, lo, immediately, three men stood at the house in which I was, having been sent from Caesarea unto me,
[12] and the Spirit said to me to go with them, nothing doubting, and these six brethren also went with me, and we did enter into the house of the man,
[13] he declared also to us how he saw the messenger in his house standing, and saying to him, Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, who is surnamed Peter,
[14] who shall speak sayings by which thou shalt be saved, thou and all thy house.
[15] ‘And in my beginning to speak, the Holy Spirit did fall upon them, even as also upon us in the beginning,
[16] and I remembered the saying of the Lord, how he said, John indeed did baptize with water, and ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit;
[17] if then the equal gift God did give to them as also to us, having believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ, I-how was I able to withstand God?’
[18] And they, having heard these things, were silent, and were glorifying God, saying, ‘Then, indeed, also to the nations did God give the reformation to life.’
[19] Those, indeed, therefore, having been scattered abroad, from the tribulation that came after Stephen, went through unto Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the word to none except to Jews only;
[20] and there were certain of them men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who having entered into Antioch, were speaking unto the Hellenists, proclaiming good news-the Lord Jesus,
[21] and the hand of the Lord was with them, a great number also, having believed, did turn unto the Lord.
[22] And the account was heard in the ears of the assembly that is in Jerusalem concerning them, and they sent forth Barnabas to go through unto Antioch,
[23] who, having come, and having seen the grace of God, was glad, and was exhorting all with purpose of heart to cleave to the Lord,
[24] because he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit, and of faith, and a great multitude was added to the Lord.
[25] And Barnabas went forth to Tarsus, to seek for Saul,
[26] and having found him, he brought him to Antioch, and it came to pass that they a whole year did assemble together in the assembly, and taught a great multitude, the disciples also were divinely called first in Antioch Christians.
[27] And in those days there came from Jerusalem prophets to Antioch,
[28] and one of them, by name Agabus, having stood up, did signify through the Spirit a great dearth is about to be throughout all the world-which also came to pass in the time of Claudius Caesar-
[29] and the disciples, according as any one was prospering, determined each of them to send for ministration to the brethren dwelling in Judea,
[30] which also they did, having sent unto the elders by the hand of Barnabas and Saul.
