Bible: Acts 12:7-11

12:7 Suddenly 1  an angel of the Lord 2  appeared, and a light shone in the prison cell. He struck 3  Peter on the side and woke him up, saying, “Get up quickly!” And the chains fell off Peter’s 4  wrists. 5  12:8 The angel said to him, “Fasten your belt 6  and put on your sandals.” Peter 7  did so. Then the angel 8  said to him, “Put on your cloak 9  and follow me.” 12:9 Peter 10  went out 11  and followed him; 12  he did not realize that what was happening through the angel was real, 13  but thought he was seeing a vision. 12:10 After they had passed the first and second guards, 14  they came to the iron 15  gate leading into the city. It 16  opened for them by itself, 17  and they went outside and walked down one narrow street, 18  when at once the angel left him. 12:11 When 19  Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued 20  me from the hand 21  of Herod 22  and from everything the Jewish people 23  were expecting to happen.”
