1Andwhen the day of Pentecost was fully come , they wereall with one accordin one place.2Andsuddenly there came a soundfromheavenas of a rushingmightywind,and it filledall the housewhere they weresitting .
3And there appeared unto themcloventongues like as of fire,and it satuponeachofthem.4And they wereallfilled with the HolyGhost,andbegan to speak withothertongues,as the Spiritgavethemutterance .
5And there weredwellingatJerusalemJews,devoutmen, out ofeverynationunderheaven.6Now when thiswasa noised abroad, the multitude came together , and were confounded , because that everymanheardthemspeak in his ownlanguage.7And they wereallamazedandmarvelled , saying one to another , Behold , arenotallthesewhichspeakGalilaeans?8Andhowhearweevery man in ourowntongue,whereinwe were born ?
9Parthians,andMedes,andElamites,and the dwellers in Mesopotamia,and in Judaea,andCappadocia, in Pontus,andAsia,10Phrygia,andPamphylia, in Egypt,and in the parts of LibyaaboutCyrene,andstrangers of Rome , Jewsandproselytes,11CretesandArabians, we do hearthemspeak in ourtongues the wonderful works of God.12And they wereallamazed , and were in doubt , sayingonetoanother,Whatmeaneththis?13Othersmockingsaid , These men arefull of new wine.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,letmebfreelyspeakuntoyouof 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 .
40And with manyotherwords did he testifyandexhort , saying , Save yourselvesfromthisuntowardgeneration.41Thenthey that gladlyreceivedhisword were baptized : and the sameday there were added unto them about three thousandsouls.42And they continuedstedfastly in the apostles'doctrineandfellowship,and in breaking of bread,and in prayers.43Andfear came uponeverysoul:andmanywondersandsigns were doneby the apostles.44Andall that believedweretogether , andhad all thingscommon;45Andsold their possessionsandgoods,andpartedthem to all men, as every manhadneed.46And they, continuingdailywith one accordin the temple,andbreakingbreadfromc house to house, did eat their meatwithgladnessandsingleness of heart,47PraisingGod,andhavingfavourwithall the people.And the Lordadded to the churchdailysuch as should be saved .
