Acts 4 ©
The rulers of the Jews, offended with the teaching of Peter and John, imprison them. Being brought before the council, Peter boldly avoucheth the late cure to have been wrought in the name of Jesus, and that men can be saved by no other name. The council, struck with the boldness of the two apostles, after conferring together dismiss them with a threatening charge to speak no more in the name of Jesus. The church betaketh itself to prayer. The presence of the Holy Ghost is signified by the house shaking, and the apostles thereby emboldened to speak the word; the unity and charity of the church, who have their possessions in common.
If we this day be examined of the mgood deed done to the *impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the 2name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, nwhom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
And they wcalled them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
So when they had further zthreatened them, they alet them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, bbecause of the people: for all men glorified God for cthat which was done.
The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
For of a truth against thy iholy child Jesus, jwhom thou hast anointed, kboth Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and vdistribution was made unto every man according as he had need.
