Bible Commentary for Acts 10:13

Wesley's Notes for Acts 10:13


10:11 Tied at the corners - Not all in one knot, but each fastened as it were up to heaven.

10:14 But Peter said, In nowise, Lord - When God commands a strange or seemingly improper thing, the first objection frequently finds pardon. But it ought not to be repeated. This doubt and delay of St. Peter had several good effects. Hereby the will of God in this important point was made more evident and incontestable. And Peter also, having been so slow of belief himself, could the more easily bear the doubting of his brethren, #Acts 11:2|, &c.

10:15 What God hath purified - Hath made and declared clean. Nothing but what is clean can come down from heaven. St. Peter well remembered this saying in the council at Jerusalem, #Acts 15:9|.
