1And when the days of Pentecost were [ful] filled, all the disciples were together in the same place.
2And suddenly there was made a sound from heaven, as of a great wind coming, and it filled all the house where they sat.
3And diverse tongues [or tongues diversely parted] as fire appeared to them, and it sat on each of them.
4And all were filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak in diverse languages [or with diverse tongues], as the Holy Ghost gave to them to speak.
5And there were in Jerusalem dwelling Jews, religious men, of each nation that is under heaven.
6And when this voice was made, the multitude came together, and were astonied, [or was confounded], in thought, for each man heard them speaking in his own language [+or in his own tongue].
7And all were astonied, and wondered, and said together, Whether not all these that speak be men of Galilee [or be Galileans],
8and how heard we [or how have we heard] each man our language in which we be born?
9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and they that dwell at [or in] Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus, and Asia,
10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya, that is about Cyrene, and comelings, Romans, and Jews, and proselytes,
11men of Crete, and of Arabia, we have heard them speaking in our languages [or our tongues] the great things of God.
12And all were astonied, and wondered, saying together, What will this thing be?
13And others scorned, and said, For these men be full of must.
14But Peter stood with the eleven, and raised up his voice, and spake to them, Ye Jews, and all that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known to you, and with ears perceive ye my words.
15For not as ye ween [or as ye guess], these be drunken, when it is the third hour of the day;
16but this it is, that was said by the prophet Joel,
17And it shall be in the last days, the Lord saith, I shall pour out my Spirit on each flesh [or on all flesh]; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your elders shall dream swevens.
18And on my servants and on mine handmaidens in those days I shall pour out of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
19And I shall give great wonders in heaven above, and signs in earth beneath, blood, and fire, and heat [or vapour] of smoke.
20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that the great and the open day of the Lord [shall] come.
21And it shall be, each man which-ever shall call to help [or in-call] the name of the Lord, shall be safe.
22Ye men of Israel, hear ye these words. Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God before you by virtues, and wonders, and tokens, which God did by him in the middle of you, as ye know,
23ye tormented, and killed him by the hands of wicked men, by counsel determined and betaken by the fore-knowing [or the prescience] of God.
24Whom God raised, when [the] sorrows of hell were unbound, by that that it was impossible that he were holden of it.
25For David saith of him, I saw afar the Lord before me evermore, for he is on my right half, that I be not moved.
26For this thing mine heart joyed, and my tongue made full out joy [or gladded], and moreover my flesh shall rest in hope.
27For thou shalt not leave my soul in hell, neither thou shalt give thine Holy to see corruption.
28Thou hast made known to me the ways of life, thou shalt [full]-fill me in mirth with thy face.
29Brethren, be it leaveful boldly to say to you of the patriarch David, for he is dead and buried, and his sepulchre is among us into this day.
30Therefore when he was a prophet, and knew, that with a great oath God had sworn to him, that of the fruit of his loins should one sit on his seat,
31he seeing afar spake of the resurrection of Christ, for neither he was left in hell, neither his flesh saw corruption.
32God raised this Jesus, to whom we all be witnesses.
33Therefore he was enhanced by the right hand of God, and through the promise of the Holy Ghost that he took of the Father, he shedded out this Spirit, that ye see and hear.
34For David ascended not into heaven; but he saith, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right half,
35till I put thine enemies the stool of thy feet.
36Therefore most certainly know all the house of Israel, that God made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus, whom ye crucified.
37When they heard these things, they were compunct in heart; and they said to Peter and [to] other apostles, Brethren, what shall we do?
38And Peter said to them, Do ye penance, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, into remission of your sins; and ye shall take the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39For the promise [or repromission] is to you, and to your sons, and to all that be far, whichever [or whomever] our Lord God hath called.
40Also with other words full many he witnessed to them, and admonished them, and said, Be ye saved from this shrewd [or this wicked] generation.
41Then they that received his word were baptized, and in that day souls were increased, about three thousand;
42and [they] were lasting stably in the teaching of the apostles, and in communing of the breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43And dread was made to each man. And many wonders and signs were done by the apostles in Jerusalem, and great dread was in all.
44And all that believed were together, and had all things common.
45They sold possessions and chattel, [or substances, or goods], and parted those things to all men, as it was need to each.
46And each day they dwelled stably with one will in the temple, and brake bread about houses, and took meat with full out joy [or with gladness] and simpleness of heart,
47and praised together God, and had grace to all the folk [or all the people]. And the Lord increased them that were made safe, each day into the same thing.
