Acts 11

1 Now the Apostles and the brothers who were in Judaea had news that the word of God had been given to the Gentiles.

2 And when Peter came to Jerusalem, those who kept the rule of circumcision had an argument with him,

3 Saying, You went to men without circumcision, and took food with them.

4 But Peter gave them an account of it all in order, saying to them,

5 I was in the town of Joppa, at prayer: and falling into a deep sleep, I saw in a vision a vessel like a great cloth let down from heaven, and it came down to me:

6 And looking on it with attention I saw in it all sorts of beasts and birds.

7 And a voice came to my ears saying, Come, Peter; take them for food.

8 But I said, No, Lord; for nothing common or unclean has ever come into my mouth.

9 But the voice, coming a second time from heaven, said, What God has made clean, do not you make common.

10 And this was done three times, and they were all taken up again into heaven.

11 And at that minute, three men, sent from Caesarea, came to the house where we were.

12 And the Spirit gave me orders to go with them, doubting nothing. And these six brothers came with me; and we went into that man's house:

13 And he gave us an account of how he had seen the angel in his house, saying, Send to Joppa, and get Simon, named Peter, to come to you;

14 Who will say words to you through which you and all your family may get salvation.

15 And, while I was talking to them, the Holy Spirit came on them, as on us at first.

16 And the words of the Lord came into my mind, how he said, The baptism of John was with water, but you will have baptism with the Holy Spirit.

17 If then God gave them, when they had faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the same as he gave to us, who was I to go against God?

18 And hearing these things they said nothing more, but gave glory to God, saying, Then to the Gentiles as to us has God given a change of heart, so that they may have life.

The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
