Acts 7:48-58 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
48 "However, 1the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says: 49 '2HEAVEN 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 '3WAS IT NOT MY HAND WHICH MADE ALL THESE THINGS?' 51 "You men who are 4stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did. 52 "5Which one of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They killed those who had previously announced the coming of 6the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers 7you have now become; 53 you who received the law as 8ordained by angels, and yet did not keep it."

Stephen Put to Death

54 Now when they heard this, they were 9cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth at him. 55 But being 10full of the Holy Spirit, he 11gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing 12at the right hand of God; 56 and he said, "Behold, I see the 13heavens opened up and 14the 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. 58 When they had 15driven him out of the city, they began stoning him; and 16the witnesses 17laid aside their robes at the feet of 18a young man named Saul.
