12 When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John,
also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying.
13 Peter knocked at the outer entrance,
and a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer the door.
14 When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed
she ran back without opening it and exclaimed,
“Peter is at the door!”
15 “You’re out of your mind,” they told her.
When she kept insisting that it was so,
they said, “It must be his angel.”
16 But Peter kept on knocking, and when they opened
the door and saw him, they were astonished.
17 Peter motioned with his hand for them to be quiet
and described how the Lord had brought him out of prison.
“Tell James and the brothers about this,” he said,
and then he left for another place.
