33 God hath fulfilled it unto us their children, in that he [a]raised up Jesus, [b]even as it is written in the second Psalm, Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee.
34 Now as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, no more to return to corruption, he hath said thus, I will give you the holy things of David, [c]which are faithful.
35 [d]Wherefore he saith also in another place, Thou wilt not suffer thine holy one to see corruption.
Acts 13:33For then he appeared plainly and manifestly as that only Son of God, when as he left off his weakness, and came out of the grave, having conquered death.
Acts 13:33If Christ had tarried in death, he had not been the true Son of God, neither had the covenant, which was made with David, been sure.
Acts 13:34The Greeks call those holy things, which the Hebrews call gracious bounties: and they are called David’s bounties in the passive signification, because God bestowed them upon David: Moreover, they are termed faithful, after the manner of speech which the Hebrews use, who terms those things faithful, which are steady and sure such as never alter nor change.
Acts 13:35The Lord was so in grave, that he felt no corruption.
