Acts 2:1-33 (Listen and Repeat)

 And when the day of Pentecost was come,

they were all together

in one place. 

And suddenly there came from heaven

a sound like the rushing of a violent wind,

and all the house where they were

was full of it. 

And they saw tongues,

like flames of fire,

coming to rest

on every one of them. 

And they were all full

of the Holy Spirit,

and were talking in different languages,

as the Spirit gave them power.

Now there were living

at Jerusalem,

Jews, God-fearing men,

from every nation under heaven. 

And when this sound came to their ears,

they all came together,

and were greatly surprised

because every man was hearing the words

of the disciples

in his special language. 

And they were full of wonder

and said, Are not all these men Galilaeans? 

And how is it

that every one of us

is hearing their words

in the language which was ours

from our birth? 

Men of Parthia,

Media, and Elam,

and those living in Mesopotamia,

in Judaea and Cappadocia,

in Pontus and Asia, 

In Phrygia and Pamphylia,

in Egypt and the parts of Libya

about Cyrene,

and those who have come from Rome,

Jews by birth

and others who have become Jews, 

Men of Crete and Arabia,

to all of us they are talking

in our different languages,

of the great works of God. 

And they were all surprised

and in doubt

saying to one another,

What is the reason of this? 

But others, making sport of them,

said, They are full of new wine.

But Peter, getting up, with the eleven,

said in a loud voice,

O men of Judaea,

and all you who are living in Jerusalem,

take note of this

and give ear to my words. 

For these men are not overcome with wine,

as it seems to you,

for it is only the third hour of the day; 

But this is the thing which was said

by the prophet Joel;

And it will come about,

in the last days,

says God,

that I will send out my Spirit

on all flesh;

and your sons

and your daughters

will be prophets,

and your young men will see visions,

and your old men will have dreams:

And on my men-servants

and my women-servants

I will send my Spirit,

and they will be prophets.

And wonders will be seen in heaven,

and signs on the earth,

blood and fire and smoke:

The sun will become dark

and the moon will be turned to blood,

before that great day of the Lord

comes in glory:

And whoever makes his prayer to the Lord

will have salvation.

Men of Israel,

give ear to these words:

Jesus of Nazareth,

a man who had the approval of God,

as was made clear to you

by the great works and signs and wonders

which God did by him among you,

as you yourselves have knowledge,

Him, when he was given up,

by the decision and knowledge of God,

you put to death on the cross,

by the hands of evil men:  

But God gave him back to life,

having made him free

from the pains of death

because it was not possible

for him to be overcome by it.

For David said of him,

I saw the Lord before my face

at all times,

for he is at my right hand,

so that I may not be moved:

And for this cause

my heart was glad

and my tongue full of joy,

and my flesh will be resting in hope:

For you will not let my soul be in hell

and you will not give up your Holy One

to destruction.

You have made me see the ways of life;

I will be full of joy

when I see your face.

My brothers,

I may say to you openly

that David came to his death,

and was put in the earth,

and his resting-place is with us today.  

But being a prophet,

and having in mind

the oath which God had given to him,

that of the fruit of his body

one would take his place as a king,

31 He, having knowledge of the future, was talking of the coming again of Christ from the dead, that he was not kept in hell and his body did not see destruction. 32 This Jesus God has given back to life, of which we all are witnesses. 33 And so, being lifted up to the right hand of God, and having the Father's word that the Holy Spirit would come, he has sent this thing, which now you see and have knowledge of.
