Acts 7:47-57 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
47 "But it was 1Solomon who built a house for Him. 48 "However, 2the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says: 49 '3HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND EARTH IS THE FOOTSTOOL OF MY FEET; WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WILL YOU BUILD FOR ME?' says the Lord, 'OR WHAT PLACE IS THERE FOR MY REPOSE? 50 '4WAS IT NOT MY HAND WHICH MADE ALL THESE THINGS?' 51 "You men who are 5stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did. 52 "6Which one of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They killed those who had previously announced the coming of 7the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers 8you have now become; 53 you who received the law as 9ordained by angels, and yet did not keep it."

Stephen Put to Death

54 Now when they heard this, they were 10cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth at him. 55 But being 11full of the Holy Spirit, he 12gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing 13at the right hand of God; 56 and he said, "Behold, I see the 14heavens opened up and 15the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." 57 But they cried out with a loud voice, and covered their ears and rushed at him with one impulse.
