Acts 2:1-13 - Pentecost And The Coming Of The Holy Spirit

1 When the day of pentecost was come, they all met together with one accord. 2 when all of a sudden there came a sound from heaven, like that of an impetuous wind, which filled all the house where they were. 3 and there appeared several little flames, and sat upon each of them: 4 and they were all filled with the holy ghost, and began to speak in different languages, as the spirit gave them utterance.

5 now many devout Jews were residing at Jerusalem, who came from all quarters of the world. 6 and upon the rumour of this event, the multitude came together, and were confounded, every man hearing the disciples speak in his own language. 7 struck with astonishment and admiration, they said to one another, are not these men who are speaking, all Galileans? 8 how comes it then that we hear every man talking in our own native tongue? 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, the inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, 10 Asia, Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya about Cyrene, foreigners from Rome, Jews, and proselytes, 11 Cretes, and Arabians, we hear them all proclaiming in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12 and they were all amazed, and perplex'd, saying one to another, what can the meaning of this be? 13 others in derision said, these men are full of sweet wine.
