    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:17

    Y estando Pedro dudando dentro de sí qu sería la visin que había visto, he aquí, los hombres que habían sido enviados por Cornelio, que, preguntando por la casa de Simn, llegaron a la puerta.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 10:17

    Verse 17. While Peter doubted-the men-stood before the
    gate] In all this we find an admirable display of the economy of Providence. Cornelius prays, and has a vision which prepares him to receive instruction from Peter: Peter prays, and has a vision which prepares and disposes him to give instruction to Cornelius. While he is in doubts and perplexity what the full meaning of the vision might be, the messengers, who had been despatched under the guidance of an especial Providence, came to the door; and the Holy Spirit gives him information that his doubts should be all cleared up by accompanying the men who were now inquiring for him.

    How exactly does every thing in the conduct of Providence occur; and how completely is every thing adapted to time, place, and occasion! All is in weight, measure, and number. Those simple occurrences which men snatch at, and press into the service of their own wishes, and call them providential openings may, indeed, be links of a providential chain, in reference to some other matter; but unless they be found to speak the same language in all their parts, occurrence corresponding with occurrence, they are not to be construed as indications of the Divine will in reference to the claimants. Many persons, through these misapprehensions, miscarrying, have been led to charge God foolishly for the unsuccessful issue of some business in which their passions, not his providence, prompted them to engage.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 17. Now while Peter doubted in himself , etc.] For notwithstanding what he had heard and seen, he had not at once a full knowledge of this matter. Bezas most ancient copy reads, as he was in himself, he doubted; that is, when he came to himself, for he was before, as it were, out of himself, and was in a trance, or ecstasy; and now being come to himself, and reflecting on what he had seen and heard, he had some doubts and hesitations in his mind: what this vision which he had seen should mean ; what the vessel or sheet should signify, what should be meant by the four-footed beasts, etc. why he should be called to arise, and kill, and eat such creatures, and what should be designed by Gods cleansing them; and while he was revolving these things in his mind, and at some uncertainty about them, something providentially happened, which was a key unto, and opened the whole vision clearly to him: behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius, had made inquiry for Simons house ; they were come to Joppa, and, according to the direction given them, had inquired and found out the house of Simon the tanner, where Peter was: and stood before the gate ; of the house; perhaps knocking at it, in order to bring out somebody within to them, of whom they might inquire for Peter.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-18 - The prejudices of Peter against the Gentiles, would have prevented his going to
    Cornelius, unless the Lord had prepared him for this service To tell a Jew that God had directed those animals to be reckoned clea which were hitherto deemed unclean, was in effect saying, that the la of Moses was done away. Peter was soon made to know the meaning of it God knows what services are before us, and how to prepare us; and we know the meaning of what he has taught us, when we find what occasio we have to make use of it.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    17. Doubted (dihporei). See on
    Luke ix. 7.

    In himself. On reflection, as compared with his ecstatic state.

    Had made inquiry (dierwthsantev). "Having inquired out;" having asked their way through (dia) streets and houses, until they found the dwelling of the tanner, who was an obscure man, and not easily found.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:17 {Was much perplexed in himself} (en heautwi dieporei). Imperfect active of diaporew, intensive compound (dia, thoroughly, and a privative and poros, way), to be completely at a loss to know what road to take. Old verb, but in N.T. only in Luke and Acts. Page notes that Luke is singularly fond of verbs compounded with dia. See on Lu 9:7 and #Ac 2:12. When out of the ecstasy he was more puzzled than ever. {Might be} (an eie). Optative with an in indirect question simply retained from the direct (Robertson, _Grammar_, pp. 1021, 1044). See #Ac 17:18, for the direct and #Lu 1:62 for the indirect (an qeloi both times). It is the conclusion of a fourth class condition. {Having made inquiry} (dierwtesantes). First aorist active participle of dierwtaw, another compound of dia, to ask one after another, to ask through, old verb, but only here in the N.T. It took diligent inquiry to find the obscure house of Simon the tanner. {Stood before the gate} (epestesan epi ton pulwna). Second aorist active indicative of efistemi, intransitive. Note repetition of epi. The messengers stopped right at the folding gates of the passage (pulwna) which led from the street to the inner court or house.
