42 “And He aordered us to 1preach to the people, and solemnly to btestify that this is the One who has been cappointed by God as dJudge of the living and the dead.
43 “Of Him aall the prophets bear witness that through bHis name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.”
44 While Peter was still speaking these words, athe Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the 1message.
45 aAll the 1circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been bpoured out on the Gentiles also.
46 For they were hearing them aspeaking with tongues and exalting God. Then Peter answered,
47 “aSurely no one can refuse the water for these to be baptized who bhave received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?”
48 And he aordered them to be baptized bin the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay on for a few days.
