37Now when they had heard these things, they had compunction in their heart, and said to Peter, and to the rest of the apostles: What shall we do, men and brethren? 38But Peter said to them: Do penance, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins: and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is to you, and to your children, and to all that are far off, whomsoever the Lord our God shall call. 40And with very many other words did he testify and exhort them, saying: Save yourselves from this perverse generation. 41They therefore that received his word, were baptized; and there were added in that day about three thousand souls. 42And they were persevering in the doctrine of the apostles, and in the communication of the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43And fear came upon every soul: many wonders also and signs were done by the apostles in Jerusalem, and there was great fear in all.
