2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all
with one accord in one place.
2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing
mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were
2:3 And there appeared to them, cloven tongues as of fire, and
it sat upon each of them.
2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to
speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from
every nation under heaven.
2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came
together, and were confounded, because every man heard them
speak in his own language.
2:7 And they were all amazed, and marveled, saying one to
another, Behold, are not all these who speak Galileans?
2:8 And how do we hear every man in our own language, wherein we
2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in
Mesopotamia, and in Judea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
2:10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya
about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and Proselytes,
2:11 Cretes and Arabians we hear them speak in our languages the
wonderful works of God.
2:12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to
another, What meaneth this?
2:13 Others mocking, said, These men are full of new wine.
2:14 But Peter standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice,
and said to them, Ye men of Judea, and all [ye] that dwell at
Jerusalem, be this known to you, and hearken to my words:
2:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is
[but] the third hour of the day.
2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel,
2:17 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:
2:18 And on my servants, and on my hand-maidens I will, in those
days, pour out of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
2:19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs on the
earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.
2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into
blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.
2:21 And it shall come to pass, [that] whoever shall call on the
name of the Lord, shall be saved.
2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a
man approved by God among you by miracles and wonders and
signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye
yourselves also know:
2:23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and
foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have
crucified and slain:
2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death:
because it was not possible that he should be held by it.
2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I saw the Lord always
before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not
2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad;
moreover also, my flesh shall rest in hope:
2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt
thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption:
2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou wilt make
me full of joy with thy countenance.
2:29 Men, brethren, let me freely speak to you concerning the
patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his
sepulcher is with us to this day.
2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn
to him with an oath, that from the fruit of his loins,
according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his
2:31 He seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of Christ,
that his soul was not left in hell, neither did his flesh see
2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, of which we all are
2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and
having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit,
he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
2:34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he saith
himself, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that
God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord
2:37 Now when they heard [this], they were pricked in their
heart, and said to Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men,
brethren, what shall we do?
2:38 Then Peter said to 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 Spirit.
2:39 For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all
that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall
2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort,
saying, Save yourselves from this perverse generation.
2:41 Then they that gladly received his word, were baptized: and
the same day there were added [to them] about three thousand
2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and
fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs
were done by the apostles.
2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things
2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to
all [men], as every man had need.
2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple,
and breaking bread from house to house, ate their food with
gladness and singleness of heart,
2:47 Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the
Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
