  <B>001:001 </B> The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all thatJesus began both to do and teach,<B>001:002 </B> Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he throughthe Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whomhe had chosen:<B>001:003 </B> To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by manyinfallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speakingof the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:<B>001:004 </B> And, being assembled together with them, commanded them thatthey should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for thepromise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.<B>001:005 </B> For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptizedwith the Holy Ghost not many days hence.<B>001:006 </B> When they therefore were come together, they asked of him,saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdomto Israel?<B>001:007 </B> And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times orthe seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.<B>001:008 </B> But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is comeupon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem,and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost partof the earth.<B>001:009 </B> And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he wastaken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.<B>001:010 </B> And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;<B>001:011 </B> Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing upinto heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you intoheaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him gointo heaven.<B>001:012 </B> Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount calledOlivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day's journey.<B>001:013 </B> And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room,where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew,Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son ofAlphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.<B>001:014 </B> These all continued with one accord in prayer andsupplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus,and with his brethren.<B>001:015 </B> And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of thedisciples, and said, (the number of names together were aboutan hundred and twenty,)<B>001:016 </B> Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have beenfulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake  before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that tookJesus.<B>001:017 </B> For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of thisministry.<B>001:018 </B> Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity;and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and allhis bowels gushed out.<B>001:019 </B> And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuchas that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, thatis to say, The field of blood.<B>001:020 </B> For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation bedesolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick letanother take.<B>001:021 </B> Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all thetime that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,<B>001:022 </B> Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that hewas taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witnesswith us of his resurrection.<B>001:023 </B> And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who wassurnamed Justus, and Matthias.<B>001:024 </B> And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest thehearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,<B>001:025 </B> That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, fromwhich Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his ownplace.<B>001:026 </B> And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell uponMatthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.<B>002:001 </B> And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were allwith one accord in one place.<B>002:002 </B> And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushingmighty wind, and it filled all the house where they weresitting.<B>002:003 </B> And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,and it sat upon each of them.<B>002:004 </B> And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began tospeak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.<B>002:005 </B> And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out ofevery nation under heaven.<B>002:006 </B> Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together,and were confounded, because that every man heard them speakin his own language.<B>002:007 </B> And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another,Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?  <B>002:008 </B> And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we wereborn?<B>002:009 </B> Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers inMesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, andAsia,<B>002:010 </B> Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libyaabout Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,<B>002:011 </B> Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues thewonderful works of God.<B>002:012 </B> And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one toanother, What meaneth this?<B>002:013 </B> Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.<B>002:014 </B> But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice,and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell atJerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:<B>002:015 </B> For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but thethird hour of the day.<B>002:016 </B> But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;<B>002:017 </B> And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I willpour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and yourdaughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall seevisions, and your old men shall dream dreams:<B>002:018 </B> And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out inthose days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:<B>002:019 </B> And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in theearth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:<B>002:020 </B> The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon intoblood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:<B>002:021 </B> And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on thename of the Lord shall be saved.<B>002:022 </B> Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a manapproved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs,which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselvesalso know:<B>002:023 </B> Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel andforeknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands havecrucified and slain:<B>002:024 </B> Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death:because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.<B>002:025 </B> For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord alwaysbefore my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should notbe moved:  <B>002:026 </B> Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad;moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:<B>002:027 </B> Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thousuffer thine Holy One to see corruption.<B>002:028 </B> Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt makeme full of joy with thy countenance.<B>002:029 </B> Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of thepatriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and hissepulchre is with us unto this day.<B>002:030 </B> Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn withan oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according tothe flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;<B>002:031 </B> He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ,that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did seecorruption.<B>002:032 </B> This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.<B>002:033 </B> Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and havingreceived of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hathshed forth this, which ye now see and hear.<B>002:034 </B> For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saithhimself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my righthand,<B>002:035 </B> Until I make thy foes thy footstool.<B>002:036 </B> Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that Godhath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lordand Christ.<B>002:037 </B> Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart,and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men andbrethren, what shall we do?<B>002:038 </B> Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every oneof you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.<B>002:039 </B> For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to allthat are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shallcall.<B>002:040 </B> And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying,Save yourselves from this untoward generation.<B>002:041 </B> Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and thesame day there were added unto them about three thousandsouls.<B>002:042 </B> And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine andfellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
