Pentecost and the Coming of the Holy Spirit

1 And when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in the same [place]. 2 And suddenly a sound like a violent rushing wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And divideda tongues like fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languagesb as the Spirit gave them [ability] to speak out. 5 Now there were Jews residing in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 And [when]c this sound occurred, the crowd gathered and was in confusion, because each one was hearing them speaking in his own language. 7 And they were astounded and astonished, saying, "Behold, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how do we hear, each one [of us], in {our own native language}?d 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and those residing [in] Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,e 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya toward Cyrene, and the Romans who were in town, 11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs--we hear them speaking in our [own] languages the great deeds of God!" 12 And all were amazed and greatly perplexed, saying {to one another},f "{What can this mean?}"g 13 But others jeered [and]h said, "They are full of sweet new wine!"
