Bible: Acts 2:17-36
2:17 ‘And 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.
2:22 “Men 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
2:29 “Brothers, 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
