Clarke's Commentary on Acts 10 :21

Which were sent unto him from Cornelius - This clause is wanting in almost every MS. of worth, and in almost all the versions.

Behold, I am he whom ye seek - A sudden, unexpected speech, like the address of Aeneas to Dido; when the cloud in which he was involved suddenly dissipated, and he appeared with the exclamation,

- coram, quem quaeritis, adsum!

Aen. lib. i.595.

What is the cause therefore ye are come? - He still did not know the full import of the vision; but being informed by the Holy Spirit that three men were seeking him, and that he should go with them, without scruple, he instantly obeyed; and finding them at the door, desired to know why they sought him.
