Acts 2 ©
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. 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. A great number are converted by Peter's preaching; who, being baptized, converse devoutly and charitably together, the apostles working many miracles, and God daily increasing the church.
Now when this 1was *noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were 2confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
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:
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:
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.
Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
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.
