|Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible|
Who shall tell thee words,.... Preach doctrines, such as relate to the person and office of Christ, to peace and pardon, and righteousness and salvation by him; such as Peter did preach, as appears by his discourse in the preceding chapter:
Barnes' Notes on the Bible
And all thy house - Thy family. This is a circumstance which his omitted in the account in Acts 10:It is said, however, in Acts 10:2, that Cornelius feared God with all his house. It is evident from Acts 10:48 that the family also received the ordinance of baptism, and was received into the church.
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou and all thy house shall be saved - This is an additional circumstance: before, it was said, Acts 10:6, Peter shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do; and, in Acts 10:33, who, when he cometh, shall speak unto thee. But, in Peter's relation, the matter is more explicitly declared, he shall tell thee words whereby thou and thy house shall be saved. He shall announce to you all the doctrine of salvation.
Geneva Study Bible
Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
People's New Testament
11:14 Whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved. Note the import of these words of the angel to Cornelius: (1) Notwithstanding his prayers, alms, devotion, and justice, he was not yet saved. Only the gospel could save him. God's mercy was shown in bringing him the gospel. (2) This is the first instance named in Acts of a household baptism. Were there any infants? Who are meant is seen by reference to his kinsmen and near friends (Ac 10:24). These heard (Ac 10:44), were baptized with the Holy Spirit (Ac 10:45), and baptized in water (Ac 10:47,48).
11:14 Saved - With the full Christian salvation, in this world and the world to come.
Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary
14. Who shall tell thee words whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved-The historian makes the angel express this much more generally (Ac 10:6). So also the subsequent report of it by the deputies and by Cornelius himself to Peter (Ac 10:22, 32). But as Peter tarried with Cornelius certain days, and they doubtless talked over the wonderful scene together, perhaps this fuller and richer form of what the angel said was given to Peter; or the apostle himself may have expressed what the angel certainly designed by directing them to send for him. Observe, "salvation" is here made to hang upon "words," that is, the Gospel message concerning Christ. But on the "salvation" of Cornelius, see on Ac 10:34, 35. On that of his "house," see on Lu 19:10.
