Acts 2:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.1 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit2 and began to speak in other tonguesa3 as the Spirit enabled them. 5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing4 Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7 Utterly amazed,5 they asked: "Are not all these men who are speaking Galileans?6 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,7 Pontus8 and Asia,9 10 Phrygia10 and Pamphylia,11 Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene;12 visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs--we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!" 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, "What does this mean?"
