25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant,[a] said by the Holy Spirit,

(A)“‘Why did the Gentiles rage,
    and the peoples plot in vain?
26 The kings of the earth set themselves,
    and (B)the rulers were gathered together,
    against the Lord and against his (C)Anointed’[b]

27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your (D)holy servant Jesus, (E)whom you anointed, both (F)Herod and (G)Pontius Pilate, along (H)with the Gentiles and (I)the peoples of Israel, 28 (J)to do whatever your hand and (K)your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, (L)look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all (M)boldness, 30 while (N)you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed (O)through the name of your (P)holy servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, (Q)the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and (R)they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and (S)continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
