Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather than men!1
The God of our fathers2 raised Jesus from the dead3--whom you had killed by hanging him on a tree.4
God exalted him to his own right hand5 as Prince and Savior6 that he might give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel.7
We are witnesses of these things,8 and so is the Holy Spirit,9 whom God has given to those who obey him."
