1When1the day of Pentecostahad come, they were alltogether in one place.
And suddenly there came from heaven a noiselike a violentrushingwind, and it filled2the wholehousewhere they were sitting.
And there appeared to them tongues as of firebdistributing themselves, and cthey drested on eachone of them.
And they were all3filled with the HolySpirit and began to 4speak with otheretongues, as the Spirit was giving them futterance.
5Now there were Jewsliving in Jerusalem, 5devoutmen from everynationunderheaven.
And when 6thissoundoccurred, the crowdcametogether, and were bewilderedbecauseeachone of them was hearing them speak in his ownglanguage.
77They were amazed and astonished, saying, "hWhy, are not allthese who are speaking8Galileans ?
"And how is it that we eachhear them in our ownilanguagejto which we were born ?
9"Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and 9Cappadocia, 10Pontus and k11Asia,
1012Phrygia and 13Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libyaaround14Cyrene, and l15visitors from Rome, bothJews and m16proselytes,
11Cretans and Arabs -we hear them in our own tonguesspeaking of the mightydeeds of God."
And 17they all continued in amazement and greatperplexity, saying to oneanother, "What does thismean ?"
But others were mocking and saying, "18They are full of nsweetwine."
But Peter, otaking his stand with 19the eleven, raised his voice and declared to them: "Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you and giveheed to my words.
"For thesemen are not drunk, as you suppose, 20for it is only the pthirdhour of the day ;
but this is what was spoken of through the prophetJoel :
'21AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LASTDAYS,' Godsays, 'THAT I WILL POURFORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALLqMANKIND ; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNGMEN SHALL SEEVISIONS, AND YOUR OLDMEN SHALL DREAMDREAMS ;
18EVEN ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, I WILL IN THOSEDAYSPOURFORTH OF MY SPIRIT And they shall prophesy.
'AND I WILL GRANTWONDERS IN THE SKYABOVE AND SIGNS ON THE EARTHBELOW, BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE.
'THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUSDAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.
'AND IT SHALL BE THAT 22EVERYONEWHOCALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.'
