    VERSE (11) -
    Ge 15:13; 18:13; 26:9

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:11

    Entonces Pedro, volviendo en sí, dijo: Ahora entiendo verdaderamente que el Seor ha enviado su ngel, y me ha librado de la mano de Herodes, y de todo el pueblo de los judíos que me esperaba.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Acts 12:11

    Verse 11. When Peter was come to himself] Every thing he saw
    astonished him; he could scarcely credit his eyes; he was in a sort of ecstasy; and it was only when the angel left him that he was fully convinced that all was real.

    Now I know-that the Lord hath sent his angel] The poor German divine is worthy of pity, who endeavoured to persuade himself and his countrymen that all this talk about the angel was mere illusion; that Peter was delivered in a way which he could not comprehend, and therefore was led to attribute to a particular providence of God what probably was done by the prefect of the prison, who favoured him! But it is the study of this writer to banish from the word of God all supernatural influence; and to reduce even the miracles of Christ to simple operations of nature, or to the workings of imagination and the prejudices of a weak and credulous people. Such men should at once cast off the mask which so thinly covers their infidelity, and honestly avow themselves to be, what they are, the enemies of revelation in general, and of the Christian religion in particular.

    Peter could say, Now I know of a certainty that the Lord hath sent his angel, and delivered me, &c. No such thing, says Mr. E., Peter was deceived; it was not the Lord, it was the prefect or some other person.

    Now we know that Peter spoke by the Holy Ghost; but we have no much testimony of Mr. E. nor of any of his associates.

    And all the expectation of the-Jews.] It seems they had built much on the prospect of having him sacrificed, as they already had James.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. And when Peter was come to himself etc.] For upon his being awaked out of sleep, what with the uncommon light, which shone around him, and with the appearance of the angel, and the chains dropping from his hands, and his surprising escape through the several wards, together with the iron gate opening of itself, he was so filled with amazement, that he was not himself; he could scarcely tell whether he was in the body or not, and whether he was in a dream or a trance, or whether he saw a vision or not; but upon the angels leaving him he came to himself, the amazement wore off, and he found himself thoroughly awake, and perfectly in his senses, and that the deliverance was real: and then, he said, now know I of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel ; this was a thanksgiving to God, and an acknowledgment, that the deliverance, though it was by the ministry an angel, yet was owing to the goodness and power of God; it was God that sent his angel, and the salvation was of the Lords doing, and it was marvellous in the eyes of Peter, and gratefully owned by him: and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod ; who intended that morning to have brought him forth, and sacrificed him to the will of the people: and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews ; not only the inhabitants of Jerusalem, but the body of the Jewish nation, who were now at Jerusalem, on account of the passover; and who before they departed into their several cities and towns, expected to have had Peter brought forth, and put to death before them; but now both Herod and they were disappointed.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-11 - A
    peaceful conscience, a lively hope, and the consolations of the Holy Spirit, can keep men calm in the full prospect of death; even thos very persons who have been most distracted with terrors on tha account. God's time to help, is when things are brought to the las extremity. Peter was assured that the Lord would cause this trial to end in the way that should be most for his glory. Those who ar delivered out of spiritual imprisonment must follow their Deliverer like the Israelites when they went out of the house of bondage. The knew not whither they went, but knew whom they followed. When God wil work salvation for his people, all difficulties in their way will be overcome, even gates of iron are made to open of their own accord. Thi deliverance of Peter represents our redemption by Christ, which no only proclaims liberty to the captives, but brings them out of the prison-house. Peter, when he recollected himself, perceived what grea things God had done for him. Thus souls delivered out of spiritual bondage, are not at first aware what God has wrought in them; many have the truth of grace, that want evidence of it. But when the Comforte comes, whom the Father will send, sooner or later, he will let the know what a blessed change is wrought.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    12:11 {Was come to himself} (en heautwi genomenos). Second aorist middle participle of ginomai with en and the locative
    case, "becoming at himself." In #Lu 15:17 we have eis heauton elqwn (coming to himself, as if he had been on a trip away from himself). {Now I know of a truth} (nun oida aleqws). There was no further confusion of mind that it was an ecstasy as in #10:10. But he was in peril for the soldiers would soon learn of his escape, when the change of guards came at 6 A.M. {Delivered me} (exeilato me). Second aorist middle indicative of exairew. The Lord rescued me of himself by his angel. {Expectation} (prosdokias). Old word from prosdokaw, to look for. In the N.T. only here and #Lu 21:26. James had been put to death and the Jewish people were eagerly waiting for the execution of Peter like hungry wolves.
