1 Et cum compleretur dies Pen tecostes, erant omnes pariter in eodem loco.
2 Et factus est repente de caelo sonus tamquam advenientis spiritus vehementis et replevit totam domum, ubi erant sedentes.
3 Et apparuerunt illis dispertitae linguae tamquam ignis, seditque supra singulos eorum;
4 et repleti sunt omnes Spiritu Sancto et coeperunt loqui aliis linguis, prout Spiritus dabat eloqui illis.
5 Erant autem in Ierusalem habitantes Iudaei, viri religiosi ex omni natione, quae sub caelo est;
6 facta autem hac voce, convenit multitudo et confusa est, quoniam audiebat unusquisque lingua sua illos loquentes.
7 Stupebant autem et mirabantur dicentes: "Nonne ecce omnes isti, qui loquuntur, Galilaei sunt?
8 Et quomodo nos audimus unusquisque propria lingua nostra, in qua nati sumus?
9 Parthi et Medi et Elamitae et qui habitant Mesopotamiam, Iudaeam quoque et Cappadociam, Pontum et Asiam,
10 Phrygiam quoque et Pamphyliam, Aegyptum et partes Libyae, quae est circa Cyrenem, et advenae Romani,
11 Iudaei quoque et proselyti, Cretes et Arabes, audimus loquentes eos nostris linguis magnalia Dei".
12 Stupebant autem omnes et haesitabant ad invicem dicentes: "Quidnam hoc vult esse?";
13 alii autem irridentes dicebant: "Musto pleni sunt isti".
14 Stans autem Petrus cum Undecim levavit vocem suam et locutus est eis: "Viri Iudaei et qui habitatis Ierusalem universi, hoc vobis notum sit, et auribus percipite verba mea.
15 Non enim, sicut vos aestimatis, hi ebrii sunt, est enim hora diei tertia;
16 sed hoc est, quod dictum est per prophetam Ioel:
17 "Et erit: in novissimis diebus, dicit Deus, effundam de Spiritu meo super omnem carnem, et prophetabunt filii vestri et filiae vestrae, et iuvenes vestri visiones videbunt, et seniores vestri somnia somniabunt;
18 et quidem super servos meos et super ancillas meas in diebus illis effundam de Spiritu meo, et prophetabunt.
19 Et dabo prodigia in caelo sursum et signa in terra deorsum, sanguinem et ignem et vaporem fumi;
20 sol convertetur in tenebras, et luna in sanguinem, antequam veniat dies Domini magnus et manifestus.
21 Et erit: omnis quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit".
22 Viri Israelitae, audite verba haec: Iesum Nazarenum, virum approbatum a Deo apud vos virtutibus et prodigiis et signis, quae fecit per illum Deus in medio vestri, sicut ipsi scitis,
23 hunc definito consilio et praescientia Dei traditum per manum iniquorum affigentes interemistis,
24 quem Deus suscitavit, solutis doloribus mortis, iuxta quod impossibile erat teneri illum ab ea.
25 David enim dicit circa eum: "Providebam Dominum coram me semper, quoniam a dextris meis est, ne commovear.
26 Propter hoc laetatum est cor meum, et exsultavit lingua mea; insuper et caro mea requiescet in spe.
27 Quoniam non derelinques animam meam in inferno neque dabis Sanctum tuum videre corruptionem.
28 Notas fecisti mihi vias vitae, replebis me iucunditate cum facie tua".
29 Viri fratres, liceat audenter dicere ad vos de patriarcha David, quoniam et defunctus est et sepultus est, et sepulcrum eius est apud nos usque in hodiernum diem;
30 propheta igitur cum esset et sciret quia iure iurando iurasset illi Deus de fructu lumbi eius sedere super sedem eius,
31 providens locutus est de resurrectione Christi, quia neque derelictus est in inferno, neque caro eius vidit corruptionem.
32 Hunc Iesum resuscitavit Deus, cuius omnes nos testes sumus.
33 Dextera igitur Dei exaltatus, et promissione Spiritus Sancti accepta a Patre, effudit hunc, quem vos videtis et auditis.
34 Non enim David ascendit in caelos; dicit autem ipse: "Dixit Dominus Domino meo: Sede a dextris meis,
35 donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum".
36 Certissime ergo sciat omnis domus Israel quia et Dominum eum et Christum Deus fecit, hunc Iesum, quem vos crucifixistis".
37 His auditis, compuncti sunt corde et dixerunt ad Petrum et reliquos apostolos: "Quid faciemus, viri fratres?".
38 Petrus vero ad illos: "Paenitentiam, inquit, agite, et baptizetur unusquisque vestrum in nomine Iesu Christi in remissionem peccatorum vestrorum, et accipietis donum Sancti Spiritus;
39 vobis enim est repromissio et filiis vestris et omnibus, qui longe sunt, quoscumque advocaverit Dominus Deus noster".
40 Aliis etiam verbis pluribus testificatus est et exhortabatur eos dicens: "Salvamini a generatione ista prava".
41 Qui ergo, recepto sermone eius, baptizati sunt; et appositae sunt in il la die animae circiter tria milia.
42 Erant autem perseverantes in doctrina apostolorum et communicatione, in fractione panis et orationibus.
43 Fiebat autem omni animae timor; multa quoque prodigia et signa per apostolos fiebant.
44 Omnes autem, qui crediderant, erant pariter et habebant omnia communia;
45 et possessiones et substantias vendebant et dividebant illas omnibus, prout cuique opus erat;
46 cotidie quoque perdurantes unanimiter in templo et frangentes circa domos panem, sumebant cibum cum exsultatione et simplicitate cordis,
47 collaudantes Deum et habentes gratiam ad omnem plebem. Dominus autem augebat, qui salvi fierent cotidie in idipsum.
King James Version
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
14 ¶ But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
37 ¶ Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
41 ¶ Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
