Acts 2:1–11

The Day of Pentecost

1 When athe day of Pentecost 1had come, they were all together in one place.

2 And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled athe whole house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared to them tongues as of fire 1distributing themselves, and 2they 3rested on each one of them.

4 And they were all afilled with the Holy Spirit and began to bspeak with other 1tongues, as the Spirit was giving them 2utterance.

5 Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, adevout men from every nation under heaven.

6 And when athis sound occurred, the crowd came together, and were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own 1language.

7 aThey were amazed and astonished, saying, “1Why, are not all these who are speaking bGalileans?

8 “And how is it that we each hear them in our own 1language 2to which we were born?

9 “Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and aCappadocia, bPontus and 1cAsia,

10 aPhrygia and bPamphylia, Egypt and the districts of Libya around cCyrene, and 1dvisitors from Rome, both Jews and 2eproselytes,

11 Cretans and Arabs—we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God.”
