Three times (Acts 10:16)

“This happened three times.

Then this large sheet

Was suddenly

Taken up to heaven.”

τοῦτο δὲ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ τρίς, καὶ εὐθὺς ἀνελήμφθη τὸ σκεῦος εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν.

The author of Acts indicated that this happened three times (τοῦτο δὲ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ τρίς).  Suddenly (καὶ εὐθὺς) this giant large sheet (τὸ σκεῦος) was taken up (ἀνελήμφθη) to heaven (εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν).  Peter did not do anything.  He neither got up, killed, nor ate any unclean animal.  He had held his own against this voice.  The vision came to an end as the large sheet with all the animals went back to heaven.  What was Peter to do?  What would you do?
