Bible: Acts 10:44-48

The Gentiles Receive the Holy Spirit

10:44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on 1  all those who heard the message. 2  10:45 The 3  circumcised believers 4  who had accompanied Peter were greatly astonished 5  that 6  the gift of the Holy Spirit 7  had been poured out 8  even on the Gentiles, 10:46 for they heard them speaking in tongues and praising 9  God. Then Peter said, 10:47 No one can withhold the water for these people to be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, 10  can he? 11  10:48 So he gave orders to have them baptized 12  in the name of Jesus Christ. 13  Then they asked him to stay for several days.
