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.
Take note, all of you, and all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you put to death on the cross, whom God gave back from the dead, even through him is this man now before you completely well.
Be certain, then, that the salvation of God is sent to the Gentiles, and they will give hearing.

But if not, be certain, O King, that we will not be the servants of your gods, or give worship to the image of gold which you have put up.
Any to whom you give forgiveness, will be made free from their sins; and any from whom you keep back forgiveness, will still be in their sins.
For this reason, then, a man may get righteousness by faith without the works of the law.
And I will have mercy on their evil-doing, and I will not keep their sins in mind.
