5 Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, adevout men from every nation under heaven.
12 And athey all continued in amazement and great perplexity, saying to one another, “What does this mean?”
17 ‘aAnd it shall be in the last days,’ God says,
‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all 1mankind;
And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
And your young men shall see visions,
And your old men shall dream dreams;
I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit
And they shall prophesy.
And signs on the earth below,
Blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.
And the moon into blood,
Before the great and glorious day of the Lord shall come.
21 ‘And it shall be that aeveryone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
22 “Men of Israel, listen to these words: aJesus the Nazarene, ba man 1attested to you by God with 2miracles and cwonders and 3signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know—
‘aI saw the Lord always in my presence;
For He is at my right hand, so that I will not be shaken.
Moreover my flesh also will live in hope;
27 Because You will not abandon my soul to aHades,
You will make me full of gladness with Your presence.’
34 “For it was not David who ascended into 1heaven, but he himself says:
“Sit at My right hand,
45 and they abegan selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need.
