“He 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.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:3 He saw in a vision - Not in a trance, like Peter: plainly, so as to leave one not accustomed to things of this kind no room to suspect any imposition.
Ac 10:3 He saw in a vision evidently. "Openly", distinctly. About the ninth hour. Three o'clock. One of the Jewish hours of prayer. See PNT "Ac 3:1".
