14ButPeter, standing upwith the eleven, lifted uphisvoice,andsaid unto them, Ye men of Judaea,andall ye that dwell at Jerusalem,bethisknown unto you,andhearken to mywords:15Forthesearenotdrunken , asyesuppose , seeing it is but the thirdhour of the day.16Butthisis that which was spokenby the prophetJoel;17And it shall come to passin the lastdays,saithGod, I will pour outofmySpirituponallflesh:andyoursonsandyourdaughters shall prophesy , andyour young men shall seevisions,andyour old men shall dreamdreams :
18Andonmyservantsandonmyhandmaidens I will pour outinthosedaysofmySpirit;and they shall prophesy :
19And I will shewwondersinheavenabove,andsignsin the earthbeneath;blood,andfire,andvapour of smoke:20
The sun shall be turnedintodarkness,and the moonintoblood,beforethatgreatandnotableday of the Lordcome :
21And it shall come to pass , that whosoevershall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved .
Ye men of Israel,hearthesewords;Jesus of Nazareth, a manapprovedofGodamongyou by miraclesandwondersandsigns,whichGoddidbyhimin the midst of you,as ye yourselvesalsoknow :
23Him, being delivered by the determinatecounselandforeknowledge of God, ye have taken , and bywickedhands have crucified and slain :
24WhomGod hath raised up , having loosed the pains of death:because it wasnotpossible that he should be holdenofit.25ForDavidspeakethconcerninghim, I foresaw the Lordalwaysbeforemy face, for he isonmy right hand,that I shouldnot be moved :
26Thereforedidmyheartrejoice , andmytongue was glad ; moreoveralsomyflesh shall restinhope:27Because thou wiltnotleavemysoulinhell,neither wilt thou sufferthine Holy One to seecorruption.28
Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt makemefull of joywiththycountenance.29Men and brethren,letmeafreelyspeakuntoyouof the patriarchDavid,that he isbothdeadandburied , andhissepulchreiswithusuntothisday.30Thereforebeing a prophet,andknowingthatGod had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of hisloins, according to the flesh, he would raise upChrist to sitonhisthrone;31
He seeing this beforespakeof the resurrection of Christ,thathissoulwasnotleftinhell,neitherhisflesh did seecorruption.32ThisJesushathGod raised up , whereofweallarewitnesses.33Thereforebeing by the right hand of Godexalted , and having receivedof the Father the promise of the HolyGhost, he hath shed forththis,whichyenowseeandhear .
34ForDavid is notascendedinto the heavens:but he saithhimself, The LORDsaid unto myLord, Sit thouonmy right hand,35Until I makethyfoesthyfootstool .
36Thereforeletall the house of Israelknowassuredly,thatGod hath made that sameJesus,whomye have crucified , bothLordandChrist.37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart,andsaiduntoPeterand to the rest of the apostles,Men and brethren,what shall we do ?
38ThenPetersaiduntothem,Repent , and be baptized every one of youin the name of JesusChristfor the remission of sins,and ye shall receive the gift of the HolyGhost.39For the promiseis unto you,and to yourchildren,and to all that are afar off , even as many as the LordourGod shall call .
