Bible: Acts 2:24-36

2:24 But God raised him up, 1  having released 2  him from the pains 3  of death, because it was not possible for him to be held in its power. 4  2:25 For David says about him,

I saw the Lord always in front of me, 5 

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 6  also will live in hope,

2:27 because you will not leave my soul in Hades, 7 

nor permit your Holy One to experience 8  decay.

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

you will make me full of joy with your presence.’ 9 

2:29Brothers, 10  I can speak confidently 11  to you about our forefather 12  David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 2:30 So then, because 13  he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants 14  on his throne, 15  2:31 David by foreseeing this 16  spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, 17  that he was neither abandoned to Hades, 18  nor did his body 19  experience 20  decay. 21  2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. 22  2:33 So then, exalted 23  to the right hand 24  of God, and having received 25  the promise of the Holy Spirit 26  from the Father, he has poured out 27  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 28  at my right hand

2:35 until I make your enemies a footstool 29  for your feet.”’ 30 

2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know beyond a doubt 31  that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified 32  both Lord 33  and Christ.” 34
