5 “Now dispatch some men to aJoppa and send for a man named Simon, who is also called Peter;
6 he is staying with a tanner named aSimon, whose house is by the sea.”
7 When the angel who was speaking to him had left, he summoned two of his 1servants and a devout soldier of those who were his personal attendants,
8 and after he had explained everything to them, he sent them to aJoppa.
