9 On the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, aPeter went up on bthe housetop about cthe 1sixth hour to pray.

10 But he became hungry and was desiring to eat; but while they were making preparations, he afell into a trance;

11 and he * saw athe 1sky opened up, and an 2object like a great sheet coming down, lowered by four corners to the ground,

12 and there were in it all kinds of four-footed animals and 1crawling creatures of the earth and birds of the 2air.

13 A voice came to him, “Get up, Peter, 1kill and eat!”

14 But Peter said, “By no means, aLord, for bI have never eaten anything 1unholy and unclean.”

15 Again a voice came to him a second time, “aWhat God has cleansed, no longer consider 1unholy.”

A star (*) is used to mark verbs that are historical presents in the Greek which have been translated with an English past tense in order to conform to modern usage. The translators recognized that in some contexts the present tense seems more unexpected and unjustified to the English reader than a past tense would have been. But Greek authors frequently used the present tense for the sake of heightened vividness, thereby transporting their readers in imagination to the actual scene at the time of occurence. However, the translators felt that it would be wise to change these historical presents to English past tenses.
