Bible: Acts 2:17-36

2:17And in the last days 1  it will be,God says,

that I will pour out my Spirit on all people, 2 

and your sons and your daughters will prophesy,

and your young men will see visions,

and your old men will dream dreams.

2:18 Even on my servants, 3  both men and women,

I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 4 

2:19 And I will perform wonders in the sky 5  above

and miraculous signs 6  on the earth below,

blood and fire and clouds of smoke.

2:20 The sun will be changed to darkness

and the moon to blood

before the great and glorious 7  day of the Lord comes.

2:21 And then 8  everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ 9 

2:22Men of Israel, 10  listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man clearly attested to you by God with powerful deeds, 11  wonders, and miraculous signs 12  that God performed among you through him, just as you yourselves know 2:23 this man, who was handed over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you executed 13  by nailing him to a cross at the hands of Gentiles. 14  2:24 But God raised him up, 15  having released 16  him from the pains 17  of death, because it was not possible for him to be held in its power. 18  2:25 For David says about him,

I saw the Lord always in front of me, 19 

for he is at my right hand so that I will not be shaken.

2:26 Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue rejoiced;

my body 20  also will live in hope,

2:27 because you will not leave my soul in Hades, 21 

nor permit your Holy One to experience 22  decay.

2:28 You have made known to me the paths of life;

you will make me full of joy with your presence.’ 23 

2:29Brothers, 24  I can speak confidently 25  to you about our forefather 26  David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 2:30 So then, because 27  he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants 28  on his throne, 29  2:31 David by foreseeing this 30  spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, 31  that he was neither abandoned to Hades, 32  nor did his body 33  experience 34  decay. 35  2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. 36  2:33 So then, exalted 37  to the right hand 38  of God, and having received 39  the promise of the Holy Spirit 40  from the Father, he has poured out 41  what you both see and hear. 2:34 For David did not ascend into heaven, but he himself says,

The Lord said to my lord,

Sit 42  at my right hand

2:35 until I make your enemies a footstool 43  for your feet.”’ 44 

2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know beyond a doubt 45  that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified 46  both Lord 47  and Christ.” 48
