The Day of Pentecost

1 When the R54 day of Pentecost had F24 come, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the R55 whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing F25 themselves, and they F26 rested F27 on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled R56 with the Holy Spirit and began to speak R57 with other tongues, F28 as the Spirit was giving them utterance. F29

5 Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, devout R58 men from every nation under heaven. 6 And when this R59 sound occurred, the crowd came together, and were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own language. F30 7 They R60 were amazed and astonished, saying, "Why, F31 are not all these who are speaking Galileans? R61 8 "And how is it that we each hear them in our own language F32 to F33 which we were born? 9 "Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, R62 Pontus R63 and Asia, R64 F34 10 Phrygia R65 and Pamphylia, R66 Egypt and the districts of Libya around Cyrene, R67 and visitors R68 F35 from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, R69 F36 11 Cretans and Arabs--we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God." 12 And they R70 all continued in amazement and great perplexity, saying to one another, "What does this mean?" 13 But others were mocking and saying, "They R71 are full of sweet F37 wine."

Peter's Sermon

14 But Peter, taking F38 his stand with the R72 eleven, raised his voice and declared to them: "Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you and give heed to my words. 15 "For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, for R73 it is only the third F39 hour of the day; 16 but this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel:

17 `AND R74 IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,' God says,

`THAT I WILL POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT ON ALL MANKIND F40 ;

AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY,

AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS,

AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS;

18 EVEN ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN,

I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT

And they shall prophesy.

19 `AND I WILL GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE

AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW,

BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE.

20 `THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS

AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD,

BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.

21 `AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERYONE R75 WHO CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.'

22 "Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus R76 the Nazarene, a R77 man attested F41 to you by God with miracles F42 and wonders R78 and signs F43 which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know-- 23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined R79 plan and foreknowledge of God, you R80 nailed to a cross by the hands of godless F44 men and put Him to death. 24 "But F45 God R81 raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony F46 of death, since it was R82 impossible for Him to be held in F47 its power. 25 "For David says of Him, `I R83 SAW THE LORD ALWAYS IN MY PRESENCE; FOR HE IS AT MY RIGHT HAND, SO THAT I WILL NOT BE SHAKEN.

26 `THEREFORE MY HEART WAS GLAD AND MY TONGUE EXULTED;

MOREOVER MY FLESH ALSO WILL LIVE IN HOPE;

27 BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT ABANDON MY SOUL TO HADES R84 ,

NOR R85 ALLOW F48 YOUR HOLY F49 ONE TO UNDERGO F50 DECAY.

28 `YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN TO ME THE WAYS OF LIFE;

YOU WILL MAKE ME FULL OF GLADNESS WITH YOUR PRESENCE.'

29 "Brethren, F51 I may confidently say to you regarding the patriarch R86 David that he both died R87 and was R88 buried, and his R89 tomb is with F52 us to this day. 30 "And so, because he was a R90 prophet and knew that GOD R91 HAD SWORN TO HIM WITH AN OATH TO SEAT one OF F53 HIS DESCENDANTS ON HIS THRONE, 31 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the F54 Christ, that HE R92 WAS NEITHER ABANDONED TO HADES, NOR DID His flesh SUFFER F55 DECAY. 32 "This Jesus God R93 raised up again, to which we are all witnesses. R94 33 "Therefore having been exalted to R95 F56 the right hand of God, and having R96 received from the Father the R97 promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured R98 forth this which you both see and hear. 34 "For it was not David who ascended into heaven, F57 but he himself says: `THE R99 LORD SAID TO MY LORD, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND,

35 UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET."'

36 "Therefore let all the house R100 of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord R101 and Christ--this F58 Jesus whom R102 you crucified."

The Ingathering

37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced F59 to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren, F60 what R103 F61 shall we do?" 38 Peter said to them, "Repent, R104 and each of you be baptized R105 in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 "For the R106 promise is for you and your children and for all who are far R107 off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself." 40 And with many other words he solemnly testified R108 and kept on exhorting them, saying, "Be F62 saved from this perverse R109 generation!" 41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. R110 F63 42 They were continually R111 devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the R112 breaking of bread and to R111 F64 prayer.

43 Everyone F65 kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders R113 and signs F66 were taking place through the apostles. 44 And all those who had believed were F67 together and had R114 all things in common; 45 and they began R115 selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. 46 Day R116 by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking R117 bread from F68 house to house, they were taking their meals F69 together with gladness and sincerity F70 of heart, 47 praising God and having R118 favor with all the people. And the Lord was R119 adding to F71 their number day by day those R120 who were being saved.
