Acts 2 Revised Geneva Translation (RGT)

And when the Day of Pentecost had come, they were all of one mind, in one place.

And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as that of a rushing, mighty wind. And it filled all the house where they sat.

And tongues of fire appeared to them. And they were distributed and sat upon each of them.

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit declared.

And there were Jews dwelling at Jerusalem, men of every nation under heaven, who feared God.

Now when this was heard, the multitude came together and were astonished, because everyone heard them speak his own language.

And they all wondered, and marveled, saying among themselves, “Behold, are not all these who speak from Galilee?

“How then do we each hear our own language, with which we were born?

“Parthians and Medes and Elamites; and the inhabitants of Mesopotamia and of Judea and of Cappadocia of Pontus, and Asia,

10 “and of Phrygia and Pamphylia; of Egypt and of the parts of Libya which is beside Cyrene; and strangers of Rome and Jews and Proselytes,

11 “Cretans and Arabians. We heard them speak the wonderful works of God in our own tongues!”

12 Then they were all amazed, and doubted, saying to one another, “What could this mean?”

13 And others mocked them, and said, “They are full of new wine!”

14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and said to them, “You men of Judea! All you who inhabit Jerusalem! Be it known to you and hear my words!

15 “For these men are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.

16 “But this is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel,

17 ‘And it shall be in the last days, says God, “I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. And your young men shall see visions. And your old men shall dream dreams.

18 “And on My servants, and on My handmaids, I will pour out My Spirit in those days. And they shall prophesy.

19 “And I will show wonders in heaven above. And tokens in the earth beneath - blood, and fire, and the vapors of smoke.

20 “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord comes.

21 “And it shall be, that whoever shall call on the Name of the Lord, shall be saved.”’

22 “You men of Israel! Hear these words! Jesus of Nazareth, a proven man of God among you, through great works and wonders and signs which God did through him in the midst of you (as you yourselves also know),

23 “whom, after you had taken, crucified and killed with wicked hands (being delivered by the determinate decree and foreknowledge of God),

24 “and Whom God has raised up, having released the sorrows of death because it was impossible for Him to be held by it,

25 “(for David says concerning Him, ‘I beheld the Lord always before me. For He is at my right hand, so that I should not be shaken.

26 ‘Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad, and moreover my flesh shall also rest in hope.

27 ‘Because You will not leave my soul in the grave. Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

28 ‘You have shown me the ways of life and shall make me full of joy with Your countenance.’

29 “Men, brothers, I may boldly say to you of the patriarch David that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher remains with us to this day.

30 “Therefore, seeing he was a Prophet, and knew that God had sworn an oath to him that he would raise up Christ in the flesh from the fruit of his loins, to set Him upon his throne.

31 “He, knowing this beforehand, spoke of the resurrection of Christ - that His soul should not be left in the grave, nor should His flesh see corruption.

32 “God has raised up this Jesus. Of which we are all witnesses.

33 “Therefore, since He has been exalted by the right hand of God and has received the promise of the Holy Ghost from His Father, He has poured out that which you now see and hear.

34 “For David has not ascended into the heaven, but he says, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand,

35 “Until I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’

36 “Therefore, let all the House of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ - this Jesus Whom you have crucified!”

37 Now when they heard it, they were pricked in their hearts, and said to Peter and the other Apostles, “Men, brothers, what shall we do?”

38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the Name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39 “For the promise is made to you and to your children, and to all who are far away, as many as the Lord our God shall call.

40 And he testified and exhorted them with many other words, saying, “Save yourselves from this perverse generation!”

41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized. And the same day there were added to them about three thousand souls.

42 And they continued in the Apostles’ doctrine, and fellowship, and breaking of bread, and prayers.

43 And fear came upon every soul. And many wonders and signs were done by the Apostles.

44 And all who believed were in one place and shared everything.

45 And they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to anyone who had need.

46 And they continued daily, with one mind, in the Temple. And breaking bread at home, they ate their meals together, with gladness and singleness of heart,

47 praising God. And they had favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily, those who would be saved.
