Bible: Acts 2:22-32

2:22Men of Israel, 1  listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man clearly attested to you by God with powerful deeds, 2  wonders, and miraculous signs 3  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 4  by nailing him to a cross at the hands of Gentiles. 5  2:24 But God raised him up, 6  having released 7  him from the pains 8  of death, because it was not possible for him to be held in its power. 9  2:25 For David says about him,

I saw the Lord always in front of me, 10 

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 11  also will live in hope,

2:27 because you will not leave my soul in Hades, 12 

nor permit your Holy One to experience 13  decay.

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

you will make me full of joy with your presence.’ 14 

2:29Brothers, 15  I can speak confidently 16  to you about our forefather 17  David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 2:30 So then, because 18  he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants 19  on his throne, 20  2:31 David by foreseeing this 21  spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, 22  that he was neither abandoned to Hades, 23  nor did his body 24  experience 25  decay. 26  2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. 27
