Bible: Acts 2:22-35

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  2:33 So then, exalted 28  to the right hand 29  of God, and having received 30  the promise of the Holy Spirit 31  from the Father, he has poured out 32  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 33  at my right hand

2:35 until I make your enemies a footstool 34  for your feet.”’ 35
