Acts   chapter 2

   1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they
  were all with one accord in one place.
   2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of
  a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house
  where they were sitting.
   3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like
  as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
   4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and
  began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave
  them utterance.
   5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout
  men, out of every nation under heaven.
   6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude
  came together, and were confounded, because that
  every man heard them speak in his own language.
   7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one
  to another, Behold, are not all these which speak
   8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue,
  wherein we were born?
   9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the
  dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and
  Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
  10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts
  of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews
  and proselytes,
  11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our
  tongues the wonderful works of God.
  12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt,
  saying one to another, What meaneth this?
  13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new
  14 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:
  15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing
  it is but the third hour of the day.
  16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet
  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:
  18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will
  pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall
  19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs
  in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of
  20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the
  moon into blood, before that great and notable day of
  the Lord come:
  21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall
  call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  22 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:
  23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel
  and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by
  wicked hands have crucified and slain:
  24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains
  of death: because it was not possible that he should
  be holden of it.
  25 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:
  26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was
  glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
  27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell,
  neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see
  28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou
  shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
  29 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.
  30 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;
  31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of
  Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither
  his flesh did see corruption.
  32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are
  33 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.
  34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he
  saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou
  on my right hand,
  35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
  36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know
  assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom
  ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
  37 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?
  38 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.
  39 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.
  40 And with many other words did he testify and
  exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward
  41 Then they that gladly received his word were
  baptized: and the same day there were added unto them
  about three thousand souls.
  42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles'
  doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread,
  and in prayers.
  43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders
  and signs were done by the apostles.
  44 And all that believed were together, and had all
  things common;
  45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted
  them to all men, as every man had need.
  46 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,
  47 Praising God, and having favour with all the
  people. And the Lord added to the church daily such
  as should be saved. Acts chapter 3
