Atos 2

1 AND when the days of pentecost were fulfilled, while they were assembled all together,

2 there was suddenly from heaven the voice as of a mighty wind, and all that house in which they were sitting was filled with it;

3 and tongues that were divided like fire appeared to them, and sat upon each one of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in several tongues as the Spirit gave them to speak.

5 But there were men dwelling in Urishlem who feared Aloha; Jihudoyee, from all the peoples who are under heaven.

6 And when that voice was made, the whole people assembled and were perturbed, because every man of them heard as they spoke in their (several) tongues.

7 (And) they were all astonished, and wondered, saying one to another, These all who speak, behold, are they not Galiloyee?

8 How hear we (then) each in his own tongue in which we were born?

9 Parthoyee and Medoyee and Alanoyee, and they who dwell in the Place of Rivers, Jihudoyee and Kapadukoyee, and of the region of Pontos and of Asia;

10 and from the land of Phrygia and of Pamphylia and of Metsreen, and the regions of Lybi neighbouring upon Kyrine, and those who come from Rumi, Jihudoyee, and Proselytes,

11 and from Krete and Arabia, behold, we hear them speaking in our tongues the wonders of Aloha.

12 But all of them were amazed and admired, saying one to another, Of whom is this thing?

13 But others mocked them, saying, These have drunk new wine, and are inebriate.

14 And afterwards arose Shemun Kipha with the eleven apostles, and lifted up his voice and said to them: Men, Jihudoyee, and all who dwell at Urishlem, be this known to you, and hearken to my words.

15 For not as you suppose are these drunken; for, behold, until now are three hours.

16 But this is that spoken of by Joel the prophet:

17 It shall be in the last days, saith Aloha, I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh: And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your youths shall see visions,

18 And your elders shall dream dreams: And upon the servants and upon the handmaids Will I pour my Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.

19 And I will give signs in heaven, And mighty (deeds) on earth; Blood and fire and clouds of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before shall come the day of the Lord, great and fearful;

21 And every one who shall call the name Of the Lord shall be saved.

22 MEN, sons of Israel, hear these words; Jeshu Natsroya, the man who from Aloha appeared with you, with powers and mighty acts, which Aloha wrought among you by his hand, (even) as you know,

23 This, who was separated thereunto by the foreknowledge and by the will of Aloha, you delivered into the hands of the wicked, and crucified and slew.

24 But Aloha raised him, and loosed the bands of Shiul, because it was not possible that he should be holden in Shiul.

25 For David said concerning him, I have foreseen my Lord at all time, Who is at my right hand that I should not be moved;

26 Wherefore my heart is glad, And my glory rejoiceth: And also my body shall sojourn in hope;

27 For thou wilt not leave my soul in Shiul, Nor give thy Saint to see corruption.

28 Thou wilt reveal to me the way of life, Thou wilt fill me with joy with thy presence.

29 Men, brethren, suffer me to speak openly with you concerning the chief-father David, that he is dead and also buried, and his sepulchre is with us till this day.

30 For he was a prophet, and knew that the oath Aloha had sworn to him, Of the fruit of thy loins I will cause to sit upon thy throne:

31 And he foresaw and spake concerning, the resurrection of the Meshiha, that He would not be left in Shiul, nor would his body see corruption.

32 This Jeshu hath Aloha raised, and we all are his witnesses.

33 And he it is who at the right hand of Aloha is exalted, and hath received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, and hath shed forth this gift, which, behold, you see and you hear.

34 For David hath not ascended into heaven, because he himself hath said, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand

35 Until I place thine adversaries the stool of thy feet.

36 Assuredly, then, let all the house of Israel know, that Lord and Meshiha hath Aloha made this Jeshu, whom you crucified.

37 AND when they heard, they were pierced in their heart, and said to Shemun and to the rest of the apostles, What shall we do, brethren?

38 Shemun saith to them, Repent, and be baptized, every man of you, in the name of the Lord Jeshu, for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

39 For to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all them who are afar off, whom Aloha himself shall call.

40 And with many other words he testified to them and entreated of them, saying, Save (yourselves) from this perverse generation.

41 And some of them eagerly received his word and believed and were baptized, and there were added in that day as three thousand souls.

42 And they were faithful in the doctrine of the apostles, and participated in prayer and in the breaking of the eucharist.

43 And solemnity was on every soul; and many signs and mighty acts were done by the hand of the apostles in Urishlem.

44 And all those who believed were together, and every thing they had was in common.

45 And they who had property sold it, and divided to each according to that which he needed.

46 And every day they continued in the temple with one soul, and in the house they brake the bread, and took their food rejoicing and in the cleanness of their hearts,

47 praising Aloha, (and) given (to be) in favour before all the people. And our Lord added daily them who were saved into the church.
