    Clarke's Commentary on Acts 10:29

    I ask - for what intent ye have sent for me? - Peter had been informed of this by the servants of Cornelius, Acts 10:22; but, as all the company might not have been informed of the circumstances, he, as it were, invites him to tell his story afresh, that his friends, etc., might be the better prepared to receive the truth, which he was about to dispense, in obedience to his Divine commission.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 10:29

    Without gainsaying - without "saying anything against it"; without hesitation or reluctance.

    I ask, therefore ... - The main design for which Cornelius had sent for him had been mentioned to Peter by the messenger, Acts 10:22. But Peter now desired from his own lips a more particular statement of the considerations which had induced him to send for him.

    For what intent - For what purpose or design.
