2 Suddenly, a sound like the roar of a mighty windstorm came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in foreign languages as the Spirit gave them that ability.
6 When that sound came, a crowd quickly gathered, startled because each one heard the disciples speaking in his own language.
7 Stunned and amazed, they asked, "All of these people who are speaking are Galileans, aren't they?
10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the district of Libya near Cyrene, Jewish and proselyte visitors from Rome,
11 Cretans, and Arabs, listening to them talk in our own languages about the great deeds of God?"
12 All of them continued to be stunned and puzzled, and they kept asking one another, "What can this mean?"
15 "Men of Judea and everyone living in Jerusalem! You must understand something, so pay close attention to my words. These men are not drunk as you suppose, for it's only nine o'clock in the morning.
17 "In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
18 In those days I will even pour out my Spirit on my slaves, men and women alike, and they will prophesy.
19 I will display wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below: blood, fire, and clouds of smoke.
20 The sun will become dark, and the moon turn to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord.
22 "Fellow Israelis, listen to these words: Jesus from Nazareth was a man authenticated to you by God through miracles, wonders, and signs that God performed through him among you, as you yourselves know.
23 After he was arrested according to the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified this very man and killed him using the hands of lawless men.
24 But God raised him up and put an end to suffering of death, since it was impossible for him to be held by it,
25 since David says about him, "I always keep my eyes on the Lord, for he is at my right hand so that I cannot be shaken.
26 That is why my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices, yes, even my body still rests securely in hope.
28 You have made the ways of life known to me, and you will fill me with gladness in your presence.'
29 "Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and that his tomb is among us to this day.
30 Therefore, since he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him with an oath to put one of his descendants on his throne,
31 he looked ahead and spoke about the resurrection of the Messiah: "He was not abandoned to Hades, and his flesh did not experience decay.'
33 He has been exalted to the right hand of God, has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit, and has caused you to experience what you are seeing and hearing.
34 After all, David did not go up to heaven, but he said, "The Lord told my Lord, "Sit at my right hand,
36 "Therefore, let all the people of Israel understand beyond a doubt that God made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah!"
37 When the crowd that had gathered heard this, they were pierced to the heart. They asked Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?"
38 Peter answered them, "Every one of you must repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus the Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit as a gift.
39 For this promise belongs to you and your children, as well as to all those who are distant, whom the Lord our God may call to himself."
40 Using many different expressions, Peter continued to testify and to plead: "Be saved," he urged them, "from this corrupt generation!"
41 So those who welcomed his message were baptized. That day about 3,000 people were added to their number.
42 The believers continued to devote themselves to what the apostles were teaching, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to times of prayer.
43 A sense of fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles.
45 They made it their practice to sell their possessions and goods and to distribute the proceeds to anyone who was in need.
46 United in purpose, they went to the Temple every day, ate at each other's homes, and shared their food with glad and humble hearts.
