Actus Apostolorum 2 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

Et cum complerentur dies Pentecostes, erant omnes pariter in eodem loco:

et factus est repente de caelo sonus, tamquam advenientis spiritus vehementis, et replevit totam domum ubi erant sedentes.

Et apparuerunt illis dispertitae linguae tamquam ignis, seditque supra singulos eorum:

et repleti sunt omnes Spiritu Sancto, et coeperunt loqui variis linguis, prout Spiritus Sanctus dabat eloqui illis.

Erant autem in Jerusalem habitantes Judaei, viri religiosi ex omni natione quae sub caelo est.

Facta autem hac voce, convenit multitudo, et mente confusa est, quoniam audiebat unusquisque lingua sua illos loquentes.

Stupebant autem omnes, et mirabantur, dicentes: Nonne ecce omnes isti qui loquuntur, Galilaei sunt?

et quomodo nos audivimus unusquisque linguam nostram in qua nati sumus?

Parthi, et Medi, et AElamitae, et qui habitant Mespotamiam, Judaeam, et Cappadociam, Pontum, et Asiam,

10 Phrygiam, et Pamphyliam, AEgyptum, et partes Libyae quae est circa Cyrenen: et advenae Romani,

11 Judaei quoque, et Proselyti, Cretes, et Arabes: audivimus eos loquentes nostris linguis magnalia Dei.

12 Stupebant autem omnes, et mirabantur ad invicem, dicentes: Quidnam vult hoc esse?

13 Alii autem irridentes dicebant: Quia musto pleni sunt isti.

14 Stans autem Petrus cum undecim, levavit vocem suam, et locutus est eis: Viri Judaei, et qui habitatis Jerusalem universi, hoc vobis notum sit, et auribus percipite verba mea.

15 Non enim, sicut vos aestimatis, hi ebrii sunt, cum sit hora diei tertia:

16 sed hoc est quod dictum est per prophetam Joel:

17 Et erit in novissimis diebus, dicit Dominus, effundam de Spiritu meo super omnem carnem: et prophetabunt filii vestri et filiae vestrae, et juvenes vestri visiones videbunt, et seniores vestri somnia somniabunt.

18 Et quidem super servos meos, et super ancillas meas, in diebus illis effundam de Spiritu meo, et prophetabunt:

19 et dabo prodigia in caelo sursum, et signa in terra deorsum, sanguinem, et ignem, et vaporem fumi:

20 sol convertetur in tenebras, et luna in sanguinem, antequam veniat dies Domini magnus et manifestus.

21 Et erit: omnis quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini, salvus erit.

22 Viri Israelitae, audite verba haec: Jesum Nazarenum, virum approbatum a Deo in vobis, virtutibus, et prodigiis, et signis, quae fecit Deus per illum in medio vestri, sicut et vos scitis:

23 hunc, definito consilio et praescientia Dei traditum, per manus iniquorum affligentes interemistis:

24 quem Deus suscitavit, solutis doloribus inferni, juxta quod impossibile erat teneri illum ab eo.

25 David enim dicit in eum: Providebam Dominum in conspectu meo semper: quoniam a dextris est mihi, ne commovear:

26 propter hoc laetatum est cor meum, et exsultavit lingua mea, insuper et caro mea requiescet in spe:

27 quoniam non derelinques animam meam in inferno, nec dabis sanctum tuum videre corruptionem.

28 Notas mihi fecisti vias vitae: et replebis me jucunditate cum facie tua.

29 Viri fratres, liceat audenter dicere ad vos de patriarcha David, quoniam defunctus est, et sepultus: et sepulchrum ejus est apud nos usque in hodiernum diem.

30 Propheta igitur cum esset, et sciret quia jurejurando jurasset illi Deus de fructu lumbi ejus sedere super sedem ejus:

31 providens locutus est de resurrectione Christi, quia neque derelictus est in inferno, neque caro ejus vidit corruptionem.

32 Hunc Jesum resuscitavit Deus, cujus omnes nos testes sumus.

33 Dextera igitur Dei exaltatus, et promissione Spiritus Sancti accepta a Patre, effudit hunc, quem vos videtis et auditis.

34 Non enim David ascendit in caelum: dixit autem ipse: Dixit Dominus Domino meo: Sede a dextris meis,

35 donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum.

36 Certissime sciat ergo omnis domus Israel, quia et Dominum eum et Christum fecit Deus hunc Jesum, quem vos crucifixistis.

37 His autem auditis, compuncti sunt corde, et dixerunt ad Petrum et ad reliquos Apostolos: Quid faciemus, viri fratres?

38 Petrus vero ad illos: Poenitentiam, inquit, agite, et baptizetur unusquisque vestrum in nomine Jesu Christi in remissionem peccatorum vestrorum: et accipietis donum Spiritus Sancti.

39 Vobis enim est repromissio, et filiis vestris, et omnibus qui longe sunt, quoscumque advocaverit Dominus Deus noster.

40 Aliis etiam verbis plurimis testificatus est, et exhortabatur eos, dicens: Salvamini a generatione ista prava.

41 Qui ergo receperunt sermonem ejus, baptizati sunt: et appositae sunt in die illa animae circiter tria millia.

42 Erant autem perseverantes in doctrina Apostolorum, et communicatione fractionis panis, et orationibus.

43 Fiebat autem omni animae timor: multa quoque prodigia et signa per Apostolos in Jerusalem fiebant, et metus erat magnus in universis.

44 Omnes etiam qui credebant, erant pariter, et habebant omnia communia.

45 Possessiones et substantias vendebant, et dividebant illa omnibus, prout cuique opus erat.

46 Quotidie quoque perdurantes unanimiter in templo, et frangentes circa domos panem, sumebant cibum cum exsultatione et simplicitate cordis,

47 collaudantes Deum et habentes gratiam ad omnem plebem. Dominus autem augebat qui salvi fierent quotidie in idipsum.

Acts 2 New International Version (NIV)

The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.

Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,[b] 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”

Peter Addresses the Crowd

14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17 “‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.’[c]

22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men,[d] put him to death by nailing him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. 25 David said about him:

“‘I saw the Lord always before me.
    Because he is at my right hand,
    I will not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest in hope,
27 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    you will not let your holy one see decay.
28 You have made known to me the paths of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.’[e]

29 “Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. 30 But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. 31 Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. 32 God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord:
    “Sit at my right hand
35 until I make your enemies
    a footstool for your feet.”’[f]

36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”

37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” 41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.

The Fellowship of the Believers

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
