Acts 2:29-34 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

29 “Brothers, I can confidently speak to you about the patriarch David: He is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Since he was a prophet, he knew that God had sworn an oath to him to seat one of his descendants[a][b] on his throne. 31 Seeing this in advance, he spoke concerning the resurrection of the Messiah:

He[c] was not left in Hades,
and His flesh did not experience decay.[d]

32 “God has resurrected this Jesus. We are all witnesses of this. 33 Therefore, since He has been exalted to the right hand of God and has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit, He has poured out what you both see and hear. 34 For it was not David who ascended into the heavens, but he himself says:

The Lord declared to my Lord,
‘Sit at My right hand
