But, taking his stand, Peter with the eleven lifted up his voice, and sounded out unto them - Ye men of Judaea, and all ye who are sojourning in Jerusalem! Let, this, unto you be known, and give ear unto my declarations; -
Attend unto me, O my people, And, O, my nation unto me give ear, - For, instruction, from me, shall go forth, And, my justice - for a light of peoples, will I establish:
Hearken unto me ye who discern righteousness, The people in whose heart is my law, - Do not fear the reproach of frail men, Nor at their revilings, be dismayed;
The voice of thy watchmen! They have uplifted a voice Together, do they renew the shout of triumph, - For eye to eye, shall they see, When Yahweh returneth to Zion.
Wherefore should ye spend, Money, for that which is not bread? Or your labour, for that which, satisfieth not? Keep on hearkening unto me, And, so eat that which is good, And let your soul take exquisite delight in fatness:
Cry aloud, do not spare, Like a horn, lift high thy voice, - And declare To my people, heir transgression, and To the house of Jacob their sins.
To thy mouth, with a horn! Like an eagle, on the house of Yahweh, - because they have violated my covenant, and, against my law, have they transgressed.

And, he, said - Brethren and fathers, hearken! The God of Glory, appeared unto our father Abraham, while he was in Mesopotamia, before he dwelt in Haran, -
And Paul, standing up, and making a sign with his hand, said - Ye men of Israel! and such as revere God! hearken: -
crying out - Israelites! be giving help! This, is the man who, against the people, and the law, and this place, is teaching, all men everywhere; furthermore, even Greeks, hath he brought into the temple, and hath profaned this holy place.
Hearken! my brethren beloved: - Hath not, God, chosen the destitute in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel saying, - Keep silence and hear O Israel, This day, hast thou been made a people unto Yahweh thy God.
Now, therefore, ye sons, hearken to me, for how happy are they who, to my ways, pay regard!
To a high mountain, get ye up, O herald - band of Zion, Lift high with strength your voice, O herald - band of Jerusalem, - Lift it high, do not fear, Say to the cities of Judah - Lo! your God!
Hearken unto me, Ye that pursue righteousness, Ye that seek Yahweh, - Look well unto the rock whence ye were hewn, And unto the quarry whence ye were digged:
