The Day of Pentecost

When (A)the day of Pentecost [a]had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled (B)the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire [b]distributing themselves, and [c]they [d]rested on each one of them. And they were all (C)filled with the Holy Spirit and began to (D)speak with other [e]tongues, as the Spirit was giving them [f]utterance.

14 Now when (A)the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent them (B)Peter and John, 15 who came down and prayed for them (C)that they might receive the Holy Spirit. 16 For He had (D)not yet fallen upon any of them; they had simply been (E)baptized [a]in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then they (F)began laying their hands on them, and they were (G)receiving the Holy Spirit.

44 While Peter was still speaking these words, (A)the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the [a]message. 45 (B)All the [b]circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been (C)poured out on the Gentiles also. 46 For they were hearing them (D)speaking with tongues and exalting God. Then Peter answered, 47 (E)Surely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized who (F)have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?”

Paul at Ephesus

19 It happened that while (A)Apollos was at (B)Corinth, Paul passed through the (C)upper country and came to (D)Ephesus, and found some disciples. He said to them, “(E)Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” And they said to him, “No, (F)we have not even heard whether [a]there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” And they said, “(G)Into John’s baptism.” Paul said, “(H)John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people (I)to believe in Him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” When they heard this, they were (J)baptized [b]in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had (K)laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began (L)speaking with tongues and (M)prophesying.
