  1. Luke 24:49 NU omits of Jerusalem

The Holy Spirit Promised

(A)And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have (B)heard from Me; (C)for John truly baptized with water, (D)but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, (E)“It is not for you to (F)know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. (G)But you shall receive power (H)when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and (I)you shall be [a]witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and (J)Samaria, and to the (K)end of the earth.”

The Ark Brought into the Temple(A)

Now (B)Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, to King Solomon in Jerusalem, (C)that they might bring (D)up the ark of the covenant of the Lord from the City of David, which is Zion. Therefore all the men of Israel assembled with King Solomon at the (E)feast in the month of [a]Ethanim, which is the seventh month. So all the elders of Israel came, (F)and the priests took up the ark. Then they brought up the ark of the Lord, (G)the [b]tabernacle of meeting, and all the holy furnishings that were in the tabernacle. The priests and the Levites brought them up. Also King Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel who were assembled with him, were with him before the ark, (H)sacrificing sheep and oxen that could not be counted or numbered for multitude. Then the priests (I)brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord to (J)its place, into the inner sanctuary of the temple, to the Most Holy Place, (K)under the wings of the cherubim. For the cherubim spread their two wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubim overshadowed the ark and its poles. The poles (L)extended so that the [c]ends of the poles could be seen from the holy place, in front of the inner sanctuary; but they could not be seen from outside. And they are there to this day. (M)Nothing was in the ark (N)except the two tablets of stone which Moses (O)put there at Horeb, (P)when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.

10 And it came to pass, when the priests came out of the holy place, that the cloud (Q)filled the house of the Lord, 11 so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the (R)glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord.

16 And I will pray the Father, and (A)He will give you another [a]Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 (B)the Spirit of truth, (C)whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you (D)and will be in you.

27 (A)To them God willed to make known what are (B)the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: [a]which is (C)Christ in you, (D)the hope of glory. 28 Him we preach, (E)warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, (F)that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me (G)mightily.
