2 When athe Day of Pentecost had fully come, bthey were all 1with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and cit filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them 2divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And dthey were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began eto speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Your old men shall dream dreams.
