Acts 12:11-17

11Then Peter came to himself and said, “Now I am sure that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hands of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting.”12As soon as he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John whose other name was Mark, where many had gathered and were praying.13When he knocked at the outer gate, a maid named Rhoda came to answer.14On recognizing Peter's voice, she was so overjoyed that, instead of opening the gate, she ran in and announced that Peter was standing at the gate.15They said to her, “You are out of your mind!” But she insisted that it was so. They said, “It is his angel.”16Meanwhile Peter continued knocking; and when they opened the gate, they saw him and were amazed.17He motioned to them with his hand to be silent, and described for them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he added, “Tell this to James and to the believers.” Then he left and went to another place.
