Acts 2 ©
1 The descent of the Holy Ghost upon the apostles on the day of Pentecost: they speak various languages to the general amazement, but some deride them. 14 Peter sheweth that the inspiration spoken of by Joel was now fulfilled; that Jesus, whom they had crucified, was now risen from the dead, and ascended into heaven, according to David's predictions, and had shed forth the promise of the Holy Spirit in full proof of his being the Messias. 37 A great number are converted by Peter's preaching; 41 who, being baptized, converse devoutly and charitably together, the apostles working many miracles, and God daily increasing the church.
gAnd there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
Now when this 1was *noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were 2confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
oPhrygia, and Pamphylia, in pEgypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of qRome, rJews and *proselytes,
yOthers mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, bseeing it is but the third hour of the day.
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
cAnd it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
eAnd I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
fThe sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
Ye men of Israel, hear these words; hJesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
For David speaketh concerning him, lI foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
sTherefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
uThis Jesus hath God raised up, whereof vwe all are witnesses.
For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, xThe LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Therefore let all the yhouse of Israel zknow assuredly, that aGod hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both bLord and Christ.
¶Now when they heard this, cthey were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Then Peter said unto them, dRepent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ efor the *remission of sins, and fye shall receive the gift of the Holy *Ghost.
And with many other words did he htestify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this *untoward generation.
¶iThen they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
