Ministry on This Verse

 The poor saints, although praying fervently (they had prayer meetings in those days), can hardly believe, when Peter comes to the door, that God had really granted their prayer. The desire presents itself sincerely to God; faith can scarcely reckon upon Him. (Acts 12 by J.N. Darby)

J. N. Darby Translation

But Peter continued knocking: and having opened, they saw him and were astonished.

W. Kelly Translation

But Peter continued knocking, and on opening they saw him and were amazed.
