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.

29 [a]Brothers, I may confidently say to you regarding the (A)patriarch David that he both (B)died and (C)was buried, and (D)his tomb is [b]with us to this day. 30 So because he was (E)a prophet and knew that (F)God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one [c]of his descendants on his throne, 31 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the [d]Christ, that (G)He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh [e]suffer decay. 32 It is this Jesus whom (H)God raised up, [f]a fact to which we are all (I)witnesses. 33 Therefore, [g]since He has been exalted [h](J)at the right hand of God, and (K)has received (L)the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, He has (M)poured out this which you both see and hear. 34 For it was not David who ascended into [i]heaven, but he himself says:

(N)The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at My right hand,
35 Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”’

36 Therefore let all the (O)house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both (P)Lord and [j]Christ—this Jesus (Q)whom you crucified.”
