37And having heard it they were pricked in heart, and said to Peter and the other apostles, What shall we do, brethren? 38And Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptised, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for remission of sins, and ye will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For to you is the promise and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God may call. 40And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, Be saved from this perverse generation. 41Those then who had accepted his word were baptised; and there were added in that day about three thousand souls. 42And they persevered in the teaching and fellowship of the apostles, in breaking of bread and prayers. 43And fear was upon every soul, and many wonders and signs took place through the apostles' means.
