42 And He (A)ordered us to [a]preach to the people, and to (B)testify solemnly that this is the One who has been (C)appointed by God as (D)Judge of the living and the dead. 43 (E)All the prophets testify of Him, that through (F)His name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.”

Then Peter responded, 47 (K)Surely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized, who (L)have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?” 48 And he (M)ordered them to be baptized (N)in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay on for a few days.
