    VERSE (6) -
    Ac 9:43

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:6

    Este posa en casa de un Simn, curtidor, que tiene su casa junto al mar; l te dir lo que te conviene hacer.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 10:6

    Verse 6.
    Simon a tanner] See the note on chap. ix. 43.

    What thou oughtest to do.] From this it appears that matters of great moment had occupied the mind of Cornelius. He was not satisfied with the state of his own soul, nor with the degree he possessed of religious knowledge; and he set apart a particular time for extraordinary fasting and prayer, that God might farther reveal to him the knowledge of his will.

    Perhaps he had heard of Jesus, and had been perplexed with the different opinions that prevailed concerning him, and now prayed to God that he might know what part he should take; and the answer to this prayer is, "Send to Joppa for Simon Peter, he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do." This clause, so explanatory, is wanting in almost every MS. and version of note. Griesbach and some others have left it out of the text. But see chap. xi. 14, where it stands in substance.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner , &c] Simon the tanner was his host; this man very probably was a good man, and one that lodged strangers; of his trade, (See Gill on Acts 9:43) whose house is by the sea side ; Joppa was a sea port, ( 2 Chronicles 2:16) (Jon 1:3) hence we read of wpyd amy , the sea of Joppa f526 ; and also of wpy l hnyml , the port of Joppa f527 ; now Simons house was in the outer part of the city, and by the sea side, as well for convenience for his business, as because such trades might not be exercised within a city; being nauseous and disagreeable, because of their skins and manner of dressing them, and the dead carcasses from whence they often took them off; hence that rule of the Jews f528 , they place dead carcasses, graves, yqsrwbh taw , and a tanners workshop, (in which he dresses his skins,) fifty cubits from the city; nor do they make a tanners workshop, but at the eastern part of the city. R. Abika says, it may be made at every part excepting the west.

    The reason of that, as given by the commentators, is, because prayer was made towards the west, where the temple stood, and the divine presence was. The Ethiopic version very wrongly renders it, and the house of Cornelius is near the sea; for not his, but Simons is meant: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do ; he was to tell him words, or to deliver doctrines to him, by which he and his family would be better instructed in the way of salvation, and arrive to a greater degree of knowledge of Christ, and faith in him, and be brought to a submission to his commands and ordinances; (see Acts 10:22,32, 11:14), this clause is left out in the Alexandrian copy, and in some others, and in the Syriac and Arabic versions.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-8 - Hitherto none had been baptized into the Christian church but Jews Samaritans, and those converts who had been circumcised and observe the ceremonial law; but now the Gentiles were to be called to partak all the privileges of God's people, without first becoming Jews. Pur and undefiled religion is sometimes found where we least expect it Wherever the fear of God rules in the heart, it will appear both i works of charity and of piety, neither will excuse from the other Doubtless Cornelius had true faith in God's word, as far as he understood it, though not as yet clear faith in Christ. This was the work of the Spirit of God, through the mediation of Jesus, even befor Cornelius knew him, as is the case with us all when we, who before wer dead in sin, are made alive. Through Christ also his prayers and alm were accepted, which otherwise would have been rejected. Withou dispute or delay Cornelius was obedient to the heavenly vision. In the affairs of our souls, let us not lose time.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    6. A
    tanner. Showing that the strictness of the Jewish law was losing its hold on Peter; since the tanner's occupation was regarded as unclean by strict Jews, and the tanners were commanded to dwell apart. "If a tanner married without mentioning his trade, his wife was permitted to get a divorce. The law of levirate marriage might be set aside if the brother-in-law of the childless widow was a tanner. A tanner's yard must be at least fifty cubits from any town" (Farrar, "Life and Work of St. Paul").

    By the seaside. Outside the walls, both for proximity to the business, and because of the ceremonial requirement referred to above. Mr. William C. Prime, describing a visit to Joppa, says: "I was walking along the sea-beach, looking for shells, and at about a fourth of a mile from the city, to the southward, I found two tanneries directly on the seaside. I observed that the rocks in front of them were covered with the water a few inches deep, and that they soaked their hides on these rocks and also submitted them to some process in the water which I did not stop to understand" ("Tent-life in the Holy Land").

    Of them that waited on him continually (proskarterountwn autw). See on ch. i. 14.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    10:6 {Lodgeth} (xenizetai). Present passive indicative of xenizw old verb from xenos, a stranger as a guest. So to entertain a guest as here or to surprise by strange acts (#Ac 17:20; 1Pe 4:4). {Whose} (hwi). To whom, dative of possession. {By the seaside} (para qalassan). Along by the sea. Note accusative case. Outside the city walls because a tanner and to secure water for his trade. Some tanneries are by the seashore at Jaffa today.
