Acts 2
1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3And there appeared unto them cloven (separated; split; divided up) tongues (foreign languages) like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh], and began to speak with other tongues (foreign languages), as the Spirit [Ruach] gave them utterance.
5And there were dwelling at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah], devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans [wheel]?
8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9Parthians [a pledge], and Medes [middle land], and ‘Elma’im [their heaps], and the dwellers in Aram [Elevated Between the Two Rivers] and in Y’hudah [praised], and Cappadocia [province of good horses], in Pontus [the sea], and Asia [orient],
10Phrygia [dry, barren], and Pamphylia [of every tribe], in Mitzrayim (Egypt) [the black land, The Narrow Place], and in the parts of Libya [afflicted or weeping] about Cyrene [supremacy of the bridle], and strangers of Rome [strength], Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] and proselytes,
11Cretes [carnal (of the flesh, sensual); fleshly] and Arabians [desert or barren], we do hear them speak in our tongues (foreign languages) the wonderful works of God-The Father.
12And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What means this?
13Others mocking said, These men are full of New Wine.
14But Kefa [pebble], standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, You2f men of Y’hudah [praised], and all [you2f] that dwell at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
15For these are not drunken, as you2f suppose, seeing it is [but] the third hour of the day.
16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Yo’el [Yehovah is God];
17And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God-The Father, I will pour out of my Spirit [Ruach] 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:
18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit [Ruach]; and they shall prophesy:
19And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord - Kurios come:
21And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord - Kurios shall be saved.
22You2f men of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God], hear these words; Yeshua [God is Salvation] of Natzeret [one separated], a man approved of God-The Father among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God-The Father did by him in the midst of you, as you2f yourselves also know:
23Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God-The Father, you2f have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
24Whom God-The Father has raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be held of it.
25For David [Beloved] speaks concerning him, I foresaw (saw or knew beforehand) the Lord - Kurios always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
27Because youi will not leave my soul in hell, neither will youi suffer (allow, to let, permit) youri Holy One to see corruption.
28youi have made known to me the ways of life; youi shall make me full of joy with youri Countenance (Face, appearance; show favor).
29Men [and] brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David [Beloved], that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
30Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God-The Father had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his waist, according to the flesh, he would raise up Moshiach [Messiah] to sit on his throne;
31He seeing this before spoke of the resurrection of Moshiach [Messiah], that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
32This Yeshua [God is Salvation] has God-The Father raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
33Therefore being by the right hand of God-The Father exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh], he has shed forth this, which you2f now see and hear.
34For David [Beloved] is not ascended into the heavens: but he says himself, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto my Lord - Kurios, Sit youi on my right hand,
35Until I make youri foes youri footstool.
36Therefore let all the house of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God] know assuredly, that God-The Father has made that same Yeshua [God is Salvation], whom you2f have crucified, both Lord - Kurios and Moshiach [Messiah].
37Now when they heard [this], they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Kefa [pebble] and to the rest of the apostles, Men [and] brethren, what shall we do?
38Then Kefa [pebble] said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] for the forgiveness (pardon) of sins, and you2f shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh].
39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord - Kurios our God-The Father shall call.
40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this perverse (not easily taught or guided) generation.
41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added [unto them] about three thousand souls.
42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
44And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all [men], as every man had need.
46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47Praising God-The Father, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord - Kurios added to the church daily such as should be saved.
