Now there were staying in Yerushalayim religious Jews from every nation under heaven.
When they heard this sound, a crowd gathered; they were confused, because each one heard the believers speaking in his own language.
Totally amazed, they asked, "How is this possible? Aren't all these people who are speaking from the Galil?
How is it that we hear them speaking in our native languages?
We are Parthians, Medes, Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Y'hudah, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia,
Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome;
Jews by birth and proselytes; Jews from Crete and from Arabia. . . ! How is it that we hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things God has done?"
