Dinsdag 17 Julie 2018. 
PÊREL VIR ELKE DAG:

(Handelinge 12:1-5)
1. En omtrent daardie tyd het koning Herodes sy hande geslaan aan sommige uit die gemeente, om hulle kwaad aan te doen. 
2. En hy het Jakobus die broer van Johannes, met die swaard omgebring. 
3. En toe hy sien dat dit die Jode welgevallig was, het hy verder ook Petrus in hegtenis geneem. En dit was die dae van die ongesuurde brode. 
4. Toe hy hom dan gegryp het, het hy hom in die gevangenis gesit en oorgegee aan vier wagte, elkeen van vier soldate om hom te bewaak, met die bedoeling om hom ná die Paasfees voor die volk te bring. 
5. So is Petrus dan in die gevangenis bewaak; maar daar het 'n aanhoudende gebed tot God deur die gemeente vir hom opgegaan. 

Tuesday 17 July 2018. 
PEARL FOR EACH DAY:
(Acts 12:1-5)
1. About that time, Herod the king stretched forth his hands to afflict and oppress and torment some who belonged to the Church. 
2. And he killed James, the brother of John with a sword; 
3. and when he saw that it was pleasing to the Jews, he proceeded further and arrested Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread (the Passover week).
4. And when he had seized Peter, he put him in prison and delivered him to four squads of soldiers of four each to guard him, purposing after the Passover to bring him forth to the people. 
5. So Peter was kept in prison, but fervent prayer for him was persistently made to God by the Church (assembly).

PÊREL VIR ELKE DAG:

(Handelinge 12:6-11)
6. En toe Herodes hom wou voorbring, het Petrus in daardie nag tussen twee soldate geslaap, met twee kettings geboei, en wagte voor die deur het die gevangenis bewaak. 
7. En meteens staan daar 'n engel van die Here by hom, en 'n lig skyn in die gevangenis. Toe slaan hy Petrus op die sy, maak hom wakker en sê: "Staan gou op!" En die boeie het van sy hande afgeval. 
8. En die engel sê vir hom: "Omgord jou, en trek jou skoene aan!" En hy het dit gedoen. Verder sê hy vir hom: "Gooi jou bo-kleed om en volg my!"
9. En Petrus het uitgegaan en die engel gevolg; en hy het nie geweet dat wat deur die engel plaasgevind het, werklikheid was nie, maar hy het gemeen dat hy 'n gesig sien. 
10. En toe hulle by die eerste en die tweede wag verbygegaan het, kom hulle by die ysterpoort wat na die stad lei, en dit het vanself vir hulle oopgegaan. En hulle het buitekant gekom en een straat ver gegaan, en dadelik het die engel hom verlaat. 
11. Toe kom Petrus by homself en sê: "Nou weet ek waarlik dat die Here Sy engel gestuur en my gered het uit die hand van Herodes, en uit al die verwagtinge van die Joodse volk." 

Wednesday 18 July 2018. 
PEARL FOR EACH DAY:
(Acts 12:6-11)
6. The very night before Herod was about to bring him forth, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, fastened with two chains, and sentries before the door were guarding the prison. 
7. And suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared (standing beside him), and a light shone in the place where he was. And the angel gently smote Peter on the side and awakened him, saying: "Get up quickly!" And the chains fell off his hands.  
8. And the angel said to him: "Tighten your belt and bind on your sandals." And he did so. And the angel said to him: "Wrap your outer garment around you and follow me."
9. And Peter went out (along) following him, and he was not conscious that what was apparently being done by the angel, was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. 
10. When they had passed through the first guard and the second, they came to the iron gate which leads into the city. Of its own accord (the gate) swung open, and they went out and passed on through one street; at once the angel left him. 
11. Then Peter came to himself and said: "Now I really know and am sure that the Lord Has sent His angel and delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting to do to me."

(Ek vertrou die Heilige Gees van God om my van die korrekte Skriflesing gedeelte te voorsien elke dag, volgens u behoeftes en verwagtinge. Aan Hom kom toe alle eer, heerlikheid, krag, mag, majesteit, lofprysing, aanbidding, en danksegging, van nou af tot in ewigheid.

2. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcision party (certain Jewish Christians) found fault with him (separating themselves from him in a hostile spirit, apposing and disputing and contending with him),
3. saying: 'Why did you go to uncircumcised and (even) eat with them?'
4. But Peter began (at the beginning) and narrated and explained to them step by step (the whole list of events). He said:
5. "I was in the town of Joppa, praying, and (falling) into a trance I saw a vision of something coming down from heaven, like a huge sheet lowered by the four corners; and it descended until it came to me. 
6. "Gazing intently and closely at it, I observed in it (a variety of) four-footed animals and wild beasts and reptiles of the earth, and birds of the air, 
7. "and I heard a voice saying to me: 'Get up Peter, kill and eat.' 
8. "But I said: No, by no means Lord, for nothing common or unhallowed  or (ceremonially) unclean has ever entered my mouth."

28. And one of them named Agabus stood up and prophesied through the Holy Spirit that a great and severe famine would come upon the whole world. And this did occur during the reign of Claudius. 
29. So the disciples resolved to send relief, each according to his own individual ability, (in proportion as he had prospered), to the brethren who lived in Judea.

44. While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all who were listening to the message. 
45. And the believers from among the circumcised (the Jews) who came with Peter were surprised and amazed, because the free gift of the Holy Spirit had been bestowed and poured out largely, even on the Gentiles.  
46. For they heard then talking in (unknown) tongues (languages) and extolling and magnifying God. Then Peter asked:
47. "Can anyone forbid or refuse water for baptizing these people, seeing that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?"

PÊREL VIR ELKE DAG:

(Handelinge 9:21-25)
21. En almal wat Saul gehoor het was verbaas en het gesê: 'Is hy nie die man wat in Jerusalem uitgeroei het diegene wat hierdie Naam uitroep, en hier gekom het met die doel om hulle geboeid na die owerpriesters terug te bring nie?'
22. Maar Saulus het meer krag ontvang, en die Jode wat in Damaskus woon, in die war gebring deur te bewys dat Hy, Jesus, die Christus is. 
23. En ná geruime tyd het die Jode beraadslaag om hom om te bring,
24. en hulle plan het aan Saulus bekend geword. En hulle het die poorte dag en nag bewaak, dat hulle hom kon ombring;
25. maar die dissipels het hom geneem en in die nag deur die muur neergelaat, deur hom in 'n mandjie te laat afsak.

PEARL FOR EACH DAY:
(Acts 9:21-25)
21. And all who heard Saul were amazed and said: 'Is this not the very man who harassed and overthrew and destroyed in Jerusalem, those who called upon this Name? And he has come here for the express purpose of arresting them and bringing them in chains before the chief priests!'
22. But Saul increased all the more in strength, and continued to confound and put to confusion the Jews who lived in Damascus, by comparing and examining evidence, and proving that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah).
23. After considerable time had elapsed, the Jews conspired to put Saul out of the way, by slaying him,
24. but the knowledge of their plot was made known to Saul. They were guarding the (city's) gates day and night to kill him,
25. but his deciples took him at night and let him down through the city's wall, lowering him in a basket hamper.

PEARL FOR EACH DAY:

(Acts 9:26-30)
26. And when Saul arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to associate himself with the disciples, but they were afraid of him, for they did not believe he really was a disciple. 
27. However, Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles, and he explained to them how along the way he had seen the Lord, Who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached freely and confidently and courageously in the Name of Jesus.   
28. So he went in and out (as one) among them at Jerusalem, 
29. preaching freely and confidently and boldly in the Name of the Lord. And he spoke and discussed with and disputed against the Hellenists (the Grecian Jews), but they were seeking to slay him,     
30. and when the brethren found it out, they brought him down to Cesarea, and sent him off to Tarsus (his home town).

PÊREL VIR ELKE DAG:
(Handelinge 9:26-30)
26. En toe Saulus in Jerusalem aankom, het hy probeer om by die dissipels aan te sluit; maar almal was vir hom bang omdat hulle nie geglo het dat hy 'n dissipel was nie.  
27. Maar Bárnabas het hom geneem en na die apostels gebring, en hulle vertel hoe hy op die pad die Here gesien het, en dat Hy met hom gespreek het, en hoe hy in Damaskus vrymoediglik in die Naam van Jesus gespreek het. 
28. En hy het saam met hulle in- en uitgegaan in Jerusalem,
29. en vrymoediglik gespreek in die Naam van die Here Jesus, en ook met die Griekssprekende Jode gepraat en geredetwis, maar hulle het probeer om hom dood te maak. 
30. En toe die broeders dit agterkom, het hulle hom na Cesaréa afgebring, en na Tarsus weggestuur.

31. En die gemeentes deur die hele Judéa en Galiléa en Samaria het vrede gehad; en terwyl hulle opgebou is en gewandel het in die vrees van die Here, en die vertroosting van die Heilige Gees, het hulle vermeerder. 
32. En onderwyl Petrus oral rondgaan, het hy gekom by die heiliges wat in Lidda woon;
33. en hy het daar 'n man gevind met die naam van Enéas, wat al agt jaar bedlêend en verlam was. 
34. En Petrus sê vir hom; Enéas, Jesus Christus maak jou gesond; staan op en maak jou bed op! En hy het dadelik opgestaan. 
35. En al die inwoners van Lidda en Saron het hom gesien, en tot die Here bekeer.

31. So the Church throughout the whole of Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was edified (growing in wisdom, virtue, and piety) and walking in the respect and reverential fear of the Lord and in the consolation and exhortation of the Holy Spirit, continued to increase and was multiplied. 
32. Now as Peter went here and there among them all he went down also to the saints who lived in Lydda. 
33. There he found a man named Aeneas, who had been bed-fast for eight years and was paralyzed. 
34. And Peter said to him: "Aeneas, Jesus Christ the Messiah (now) makes you whole. Get up and make your bed! And immediately Aeneas stood up. 
35. Then, when the inhabitants of Lydda and the plain of Sharon saw what had happened to him, they turned to the Lord.

PÊREL VIR ELKE DAG:

(Handelinge 9:36-43)
36. En in Joppe was daar 'n sekere dissipelin met die naam van Tabita, wat as dit vertaal word, beteken Dorkas. Sy was oorvloedig in goeie werke en aalmoese wat sy gedoen het. 
37. En in dié dae het sy siek geword en gesterwe, en hulle het haar gewas en in 'n bovertrek neergelê. 
38. En omdat Lidda naby Joppe was, en die dissipels gehoor het dat Petrus daar was, het hulle twee manne na hom gestuur wat hom moes smeek dat hy sonder uitstel na hulle moes kom. 
39. En Petrus het opgestaan en saam met hulle gegaan. En toe hy daar kom, bring hulle hom na die bovertrek; en al die weduwees kom by hom staan en ween, en wys hom die onder- en bo-klere wat Dorkas alles gemaak het toe sy nog by hulle was. 
40. En Petrus het almal buitentoe gestuur en neergekniel en gebid. En hy het hom na die liggaam gedraai en gesê: "Tabita, staan op!" En sy het haar oë oopgemaak; en toe sy Petrus sien, het sy regop gesit. 
41. En hy gee haar sy hand en laat haar opstaan. Daarop roep hy die heiliges en die weduwees en stel haar lewendig voor hulle. 
42. En dit het bekend geword in die hele Joppe, en hulle het in die Here geglo. 
43. En Petrus het geruime tyd in Joppe gebly by 'n sekere Simon, 'n leerlooier.

PEARL FOR EACH DAY:
(Acts 9:36-43)
36. Now, there was at Joppa a disciple (a woman) named (in Aramaic) Tabitha, which in Greek means Dorcas. She was abounding in good deeds and acts of charity.  
37. About that time she fell sick and died, and when they had cleansed her, they laid her in an upper room. 
38. Since Lydda was near Joppa however, the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him, begging him: "Do come to us without delay."
39. So Peter immediately rose and accompanied them. And when he had arrived, they took him to the upper room. All the widows  stood around him, crying and displaying undershirts (tunics) and other garments such as Dorcas was accustomed to make, while she was with them. 
40. But Peter put them all out of the room and knelt down and prayed; then turning to the body he said: "Tabitha, get up!" And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she raised herself and sat upright. 
41. And he gave her his hand and lifted her up. Then, calling in God's people and the widows, he presented her to them alive. 
42. And this became known throughout all Joppa, and many came to believe on the Lord (to adhere to, and trust in, and rely in Jesus as the Christ and as their Saviour).
43. And Peter remained in Joppa for considerable time, with a certain Simon, a tanner.

3. About the ninth hour (about 3:00 pm) of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God entering and saying to him: "Cornelius!"
4. And he, gazing intently at him, became frightened and said: 'What is it Lord?' And the angel said to him: "Your prayers and your (generous) gifts to the poor have come up (as a sacrifice) to God, and have been remembered by Him,
5. "And now send men to Joppa and have them call for and invite here, a certain Simon whose surname is Peter; 
6. "he is lodging with Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the seaside."
