28 to do whatever Your hand and 1Your purpose predestined to occur. 29 "And anow, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may 2speak Your word with all 3confidence, 30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and b4signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy c5servant Jesus." 31 And when they had prayed, the 6place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all 7filled with the Holy Spirit and began to 8speak the word of God with 9boldness.

Sharing among Believers

32 And the dcongregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them eclaimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but 10all things were common property to them. 33 And 11with great power the apostles were giving 12testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. 34 For there was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses 13would sell them and bring the fproceeds of the sales 35 and 14lay them at the apostles' feet, and they would be 15distributed to each as any had need. 36 Now Joseph, a Levite of 16Cyprian birth, who was also called 17Barnabas by the apostles (which translated means Son of g18Encouragement ), 37 and who owned a tract of land, sold it and brought the money and 19laid it at the apostles' feet.
