    Barnes' Notes on Acts 12:14

    She opened not the gate - At this time of night, and in these circumstances, the door would be fastened. Christians were doubtless alarmed by the death of James and the imprisonment of Peter, and they would take all possible precautions for their own safety.

    For gladness - In her joy she hastened to inform those who were assembled of the safety of Peter.
