044:002:001
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come,
they were all with one accord in one place.


044:002:002
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind,
and it filled all the house where they were sitting.


044:002:003
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,
and it sat upon each of them.


044:002:004
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,
and began to speak with other tongues,
as the Spirit gave them utterance.


044:002:005
And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews,
devout men,
out of every nation under heaven.


044:002:006
Now when this was noised abroad,
the multitude came together,
and were confounded,
because that every man heard them speak in his own language.


044:002:007
And they were all amazed and marvelled,
saying one to another,
Behold,
are not all these which speak Galilaeans?


044:002:008
And how hear we every man in our own tongue,
wherein we were born?


044:002:009
Parthians,
and Medes,
and Elamites,
and the dwellers in Mesopotamia,
and in Judaea,
and Cappadocia,
in Pontus,
and Asia,


044:002:010
Phrygia,
and Pamphylia,
in Egypt,
and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene,
and strangers of Rome,
Jews and proselytes,


044:002:011
Cretes and Arabians,
we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.


044:002:012
And they were all amazed,
and were in doubt,
saying one to another,
What meaneth this?


044:002:013
Others mocking said,
These men are full of new wine.


044:002:014
But Peter,
standing up with the eleven,
lifted up his voice,
and said unto them,
Ye men of Judaea,
and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem,
be this known unto you,
and hearken to my words:


044:002:015
For these are not drunken,
as ye suppose,
seeing it is but the third hour of the day.


044:002:016
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;


044:002:017
And it shall come to pass in the last days,
saith God,
I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions,
and your old men shall dream dreams:


044:002:018
And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit;
and they shall prophesy:


044:002:019
And I will shew wonders in heaven above,
and signs in the earth beneath;
blood,
and fire,
and vapour of smoke:


044:002:020
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood,
before the great and notable day of the Lord come:


044:002:021
And it shall come to pass,
that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.


044:002:022
Ye men of Israel,
hear these words;
Jesus of Nazareth,
a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs,
which God did by him in the midst of you,
as ye yourselves also know:


044:002:023
Him,
being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God,
ye have taken,
and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:


044:002:024
Whom God hath raised up,
having loosed the pains of death:
because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.


044:002:025
For David speaketh concerning him,
I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
for he is on my right hand,
that I should not be moved:


044:002:026
Therefore did my heart rejoice,
and my tongue was glad;
moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:


044:002:027
Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell,
neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.


044:002:028
Thou hast made known to me the ways of life;
thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.


044:002:029
Men and brethren,
let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David,
that he is both dead and buried,
and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.


044:002:030
Therefore being a prophet,
and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him,
that of the fruit of his loins,
according to the flesh,
he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;


044:002:031
He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ,
that his soul was not left in hell,
neither his flesh did see corruption.


044:002:032
This Jesus hath God raised up,
whereof we all are witnesses.


044:002:033
Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost,
he hath shed forth this,
which ye now see and hear.


044:002:034
For David is not ascended into the heavens:
but he saith himself,
The Lord said unto my Lord,
Sit thou on my right hand,


044:002:035
Until I make thy foes thy footstool.


044:002:036
Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
that God hath made the same Jesus,
whom ye have crucified,
both Lord and Christ.


044:002:037
Now when they heard this,
they were pricked in their heart,
and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles,
Men and brethren,
what shall we do?


044:002:038
Then Peter said unto them,
Repent,
and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


044:002:039
For the promise is unto you,
and to your children,
and to all that are afar off,
even as many as the LORD our God shall call.


044:002:040
And with many other words did he testify and exhort,
saying,
Save yourselves from this untoward generation.


044:002:041
Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:
and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.


044:002:042
And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship,
and in breaking of bread,
and in prayers.


044:002:043
And fear came upon every soul:
and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.


044:002:044
And all that believed were together,
and had all things common;


044:002:045
And sold their possessions and goods,
and parted them to all men,
as every man had need.


044:002:046
And they,
continuing daily with one accord in the temple,
and breaking bread from house to house,
did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,


044:002:047
Praising God,
and having favour with all the people.
And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
