Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 10:17-24

_ _ while Peter doubted ... what this should mean, behold, the three men ... stood before the gate ... and asked — “were inquiring,” that is, in the act of doing so. The preparations here made — of Peter for his Gentile visitors, as of Cornelius for him — are devoutly to be noted. But besides this, at the same moment, “the Spirit” expressly informs him that three men were inquiring for him, and bids him unhesitatingly go with them, as sent by Him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 10:9-18.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 10:17

While Peter doubted in himself, behold the men — Frequently the things which befall us within and from without at the same time, are a key to each other. The things which thus concur and agree together, ought to be diligently attended to.
