Acts 2:1-13

1 When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
2 Without warning there was a sound like a strong wind, gale force - no one could tell where it came from. It filled the whole building.
3 Then, like a wildfire, the Holy Spirit spread through their ranks,
4 and they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them.
5 There were many Jews staying in Jerusalem just then, devout pilgrims from all over the world.
6 When they heard the sound, they came on the run. Then when they heard, one after another, their own mother tongues being spoken, they were thunderstruck.
7 They couldn't for the life of them figure out what was going on, and kept saying, "Aren't these all Galileans?
8 How come we're hearing them talk in our various mother tongues?
9 Parthians, Medes, and Elamites; Visitors from Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia,
10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene;
11 both Jews and proselytes; Even Cretans and Arabs! "They're speaking our languages, describing God's mighty works!"
12 Their heads were spinning; they couldn't make head or tail of any of it. They talked back and forth, confused: "What's going on here?"
13 Others joked, "They're drunk on cheap wine."
