And the Pharisees being assembled together, Jesus asked them, saying, What do you think of the Christ? whose son is he? They said to him, David's. He said to them, How then does David in spirit call him Lord, saying, read more.
The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on my right hand till I make your enemies your footstool? If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son? And no one was able to answer him a word, neither dared any one after that day to question him farther.

For David says of him, I saw the Lord always before me, he is on my right hand that I should not be moved; therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue was glad, and my flesh, moreover, shall also live in hope; for thou wilt not leave my soul in hades, nor suffer thy Holy One to see destruction. read more.
Thou hast made me know the ways of life, thou wilt fill me with joy with thy presence. Men and brothers, let me speak to you freely of the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God swore with an oath to him to set a descendant of his on his throne, foreseeing he spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that he was not left in hades neither did his flesh see destruction. This Jesus has God raised up, whose witnesses we all are. Being therefore exalted on the right hand of God, and receiving the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, he has poured this out which you both see and hear. For David ascended not to heaven, but he says, The Lord said to my lord, Sit on my right hand till I make your enemies your footstool. Let all the house of Israel therefore know certainly, that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified both Lord and Christ. And hearing [this] they were distressed in mind, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, Men and brothers, what shall we do? And Peter said to them, Change your minds, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the nations rage and the peoples devise vain things?


AND when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all with one mind together. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of a violent wind borne along, and it filled all the house where they were sitting; and there appeared to them divided tongues as of fire, and [one] sat on each one of them; read more.
and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were Jews living at Jerusalem, pious men, of every nation under heaven; and when this sound was [heard], the multitude came together and were astonished, for they each one heard them speaking in his own language. And they were astonished and wondered, saying, Are not all these that speak Galileans? And how do we hear each one in our own language in which we were born, Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and those who live in Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Lybia about Cyrene, and the Roman strangers, both Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabs, do we hear them speak in our tongues of the great works of God. And they were all astonished and perplexed, saying one to another, What does this mean? But others mocking said, They are full of sweet wine. But Peter standing up with the eleven lifted up his voice and said to them, Men of Judea, and all who live at Jerusalem, be this known to you, and attend to my words. For these are not drunk as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day [9 A.M.], but this is what was said by the prophet; In the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and upon my male servants and upon my female servants in those days will I pour out of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will show prodigies in heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and a cloud of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and illustrious day of the Lord comes. And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. Men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus the Nazoraean, a man approved by God to you by mighty works and prodigies and miracles, which God performed by him in the midst of you, as you yourselves know, this man, delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, you have affixed to the cross, and killed by the hand of the wicked, him has God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, as it was not possible that he should be held by it. For David says of him, I saw the Lord always before me, he is on my right hand that I should not be moved; therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue was glad, and my flesh, moreover, shall also live in hope; for thou wilt not leave my soul in hades, nor suffer thy Holy One to see destruction.

And Peter seeing it answered the people, Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this? or why do you look intently at us as if by our power or piety we had made him walk? The God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied before Pilate when he decided to release him; but you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked a murderer to be given you, read more.
but killed the Prince of life, whom God has raised from the dead, whose witnesses we are. And by the faith of his name, his name has made strong this man whom you behold and know, and the faith which is by him has given him this entire soundness before you all. And now, brothers, I know that you did it without knowledge, as did also your rulers; but what God had before declared by the mouth of all the prophets that his Anointed should suffer, he has so accomplished. Change your minds, therefore, and turn yourselves, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and he send to you Jesus Christ before appointed, whom heaven must receive till the times of the restoration of all things of which God has spoken by the mouth of his holy prophets since the world began. Moses indeed said, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up to you, of your brothers, like me; him shall you hear in all things which he shall speak to you; and every soul which will not hear that prophet shall be destroyed from the people. And all the prophets, from Samuel and those following him in order, who have spoken, have also announced these days. You are the children of the prophets, and of the promise which God promised to our fathers, saying to Abraham, And in your offspring shall all the families of the earth be blessed. God having raised up his servant has sent him to you first, to bless you by turning each [one of you] from your evil ways.
