    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:44

    ¶ Estando an hablando Pedro estas palabras, el Espíritu Santo cay sobre todos los que oían la palabra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 10:44

    Verse 44. While Peter yet spake] It in not very likely that the
    words recorded by St. Luke are all that the apostle spoke on this occasion; but, while he continued to discourse with them on this subject, the Holy Ghost fell on all them that heard the word; and his descent was known by their being enabled to speak with different kinds of tongues. In what manner this gift was bestowed we cannot tell; probably it was in the same way in which it had been given on the day of pentecost; for as they spake with tongues, which was the effect of the descent of the Spirit as flaming tongues on the heads of the disciples on the day of pentecost, it is very likely that the same appearance now took place.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 44. While Peter yet spake these
    words , etc.] As he was thus discoursing concerning Christ, his person, his miracles, his death and resurrection, and the efficacy of his blood for pardon, before he had done speaking, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word . This is not to be understood of the operations of the Spirit of God upon the souls of men, under the ministry of the word; though true it is, that the Spirit of God attends the preaching of thee Gospel, and not only qualifies men for it, and assists them in it, but makes it effectual to many that hear it: hearers of the word lie in the way of the gracious operations of the Spirit; and the gifts and graces of the Spirit are given to persons, or the Spirit falls upon them under such means: which may denote the original of the grace of the Spirit, it falls down from above, from heaven; the freeness of it, it is bestowed on whom he pleases, under the same ministry; the suddenness of it, it comes at once, unthought of, and undesired, as well as undeserved; the power and efficacy of it, it falls with weight, it melts the heart, and converts the sinner; and the plenty of it, it falls in abundance, it is exceeding abundant with faith and love; and the permanency of it, it continues where it falls, and is a well of living water springing up unto everlasting life: and also the invisibility of it unto others. But this is not here intended, at least it is not only designed; for though the Spirit of God, in the operations of his grace, might fall upon them that heard the word, whereby they were regenerated, converted, and sanctified, and so became proper subjects for baptism; yet also the extraordinary gifts of the Spirit came upon them, as they were hearing; not upon the men, the believing Jews, that came along with Peter; but upon Cornelius and his family, and upon all his relations and friends, who came together to hear the word at his invitation, and now were hearing it; and as they were, the Holy Ghost, in his miraculous gifts of speaking with divers tongues, fell upon them in a visible form, as upon the apostles on the day of Pentecost; for that it was in the same way seems probable from ( Acts 11:15). These extraordinary gifts of the Spirit were necessary at the first preaching of the Gospel to the Gentiles, for the confirmation of it: as well as for the further confirmation of Peter, that he was right in so doing; as also for the sake of the believing Jews he brought along with him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 44-48 - The Holy
    Ghost fell upon others after they were baptized, to confir them in the faith; but upon these Gentiles before they were baptized to show that God does not confine himself to outward signs. The Holy Ghost fell upon those who were neither circumcised nor baptized; it is the Spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing. They magnifie God, and spake of Christ and the benefits of redemption. Whatever gif we are endued with, we ought to honour God with it. The believing Jew who were present, were astonished that the gift of the Holy Ghost wa poured out upon the Gentiles also. By mistaken notions of things, we make difficult for ourselves as to the methods of Divine providence an grace. As they were undeniably baptized with the Holy Ghost, Pete concluded they were not to be refused the baptism of water, and the ordinance was administered. The argument is conclusive; can we deny the sign to those who have received the things signified? Those who have some acquaintance with Christ, cannot but desire more. Even those wh have received the Holy Ghost, must see their need of daily learnin more of the truth __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    44. The Holy
    Ghost fell. The only example of the bestowment of the Spirit before baptism.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:44 {While Peter yet spake} (eti lalountos tou petrou). Genitive absolute of present participle, still going on. {The Holy
    Ghost fell} (epepesen to pneuma to hagion). Second aorist active indicative of epipiptw, old verb to fall upon, to recline, to come upon. Used of the Holy Spirit in #8:16; 10:44; 11:15. It appears that Peter was interrupted in his sermon by this remarkable event. The Jews had received the Holy Spirit (#2:4), the Samaritans (#8:17), and now Gentiles. But on this occasion it was before baptism, as was apparently true in Paul's case (#9:17f.). In #8:16; 19:5 the hands of the apostles were also placed after baptism on those who received the Holy Spirit. Here it was unexpected by Peter and by Cornelius and was indubitable proof of the conversion of these Gentiles who had accepted Peter's message and had believed on Jesus Christ as Savior.
