Acts 2:1-47

1 And in the fulfilling of the day of Pentecost, they were all with one mind in the same place. 2 And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven, as being borne along by a violent wind! And it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And tongues as of fire appeared to them, being distributed, and it sat on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave ability to them to speak. 5 And Jews were living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation of those under the heaven. 6 But this sound occurring, the multitude came together and were confounded, because they each heard them speaking in his own dialect. 7 And all were amazed and marveled, saying to one another, Behold, are not all these, those speaking, Galileans? 8 And how do we hear each in our own dialect in which we were born, 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and those living in Mesopotamia, both Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 both Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the regions of Libya over against Cyrene, and the temporarily residing Romans, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabians; in our own languages we hear them speaking the great deeds of God? 12 And all were amazed and puzzled, saying to one another, What would this wish to be? 13 But ridiculing, others said, They are full of sweet wine. 14 But standing up with the Eleven, Peter lifted up his voice and spoke out to them, Men, Jews, and all those living in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to my words: 15 For these are not drunk, as you imagine, for it is the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which has been spoken by the prophet Joel, 17 "And it shall be" in the last days, God says, "I will pour from My Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy;" "and your young men shall see visions," "and your old men shall dream dreams;" 18 "and also I will pour out My Spirit on My slaves and slave women in those days," and they shall prophesy. 19 "And I will give wonders in the heaven above," and miracles "on the earth below, blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the" "coming of the great and glorious" "day of the Lord." 21 "And it shall be that everyone who shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved." Joel 3:15 22 Men, Israelites, hear these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man from God, having been approved among you by powerful deeds and wonders and miracles, which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know, 23 this One given to you by the before-determined counsel and foreknowledge of God, you having taken by lawless hands, having crucified Him, you put Him to death. 24 But God raised Him up, loosing the throes of death, because it was not possible for Him to be held by it. 25 For David said as to Him, "I always foresaw the Lord before Me, because He is at My right hand, that I not be moved. 26 For this reason My heart rejoiced, and My tongue was glad; and My flesh also will dwell on hope, 27 because You will not leave My soul in Hades, nor will You give Your Holy One to see corruption. 28 You revealed to Me paths of life; You will fill Me with joy with Your face." LXX-Psa. 15:8-11; MT-Psa. 16:8-11 29 Men, brothers, it is permitted to say to you with plainness as to the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is among us until this day. 30 Being a prophet, then, and knowing that God swore with an oath to him that of the fruit of his loin, as concerning flesh, to raise the Christ to sit on his throne, see Psa. 132:11 31 foreseeing, he spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, "that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption." LXX-Psa. 15:10; Mt-Psa. 16:10 32 This Jesus God raised up, of which we all are witnesses. 33 Then being exalted to the right of God, and receiving the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, He poured out this which you now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend into Heaven, but he says, "The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand 35 until I place Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet." LXX-Psa. 109:1; MT-Psa. 110:1 36 Then assuredly, let all the house of Israel acknowledge that God made Him both Lord and Christ, this same Jesus whom you crucified. 37 And hearing, they were stabbed in the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, Men, brothers, What shall we do? 38 And Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized, each of you on the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40 And with many other words he earnestly testified and exhorted, saying, Be saved from this perverse generation. 41 Then those who gladly welcomed his words were baptized. And about three thousand souls were added that day. 42 And they were continuing steadfastly in the doctrine of the apostles, and in fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 And fear came to every soul, and many wonders and miracles took place through the apostles. 44 And all the believers were together and had all things common. 45 And they sold possessions and goods and distributed them to all, according as anyone had need. 46 And continuing steadfastly with one mind day by day in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they shared food in gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church those being saved from day to day.

John 4:10-14

10 Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God, and who is the One saying to you, Give Me to drink, you would have asked Him, and He would give you living water. 11 The woman said to Him, Sir, you have no vessel, and the well is deep. From where then do you have living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob who gave us the well, and he and his sons and his livestock drank out of it? 13 Jesus answered and said to her, Everyone drinking of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever may drink of the water which I will give him will never ever thirst, but the water which I will give to him will become a fountain of water in him, springing up into everlasting life.

1 Corinthians 14:1-40

1 Pursue love, and seek eagerly the spiritual things, but rather that you may prophesy. 2 For the one speaking in a tongue does not speak to men, but to God, for no one hears, but in spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But the one prophesying to men speaks for building up, and encouragement, and comfort. 4 The one speaking in a tongue builds himself up, but he prophesying builds up a church. 5 And I wish all of you to speak in languages, but rather that you may prophesy. For the one prophesying is greater than the one speaking in tongues, unless he interpret that the church may receive building up. 6 But now, brothers, if I come to you speaking in tongues, what will I profit you, except I speak to you either in revelation, or in knowledge, or in prophecy, or in teaching? 7 Yet lifeless things giving a sound, whether flute or harp, if they do not give a distinction in the sound, how will it be known what is being piped or harped? 8 For also if a trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who will get himself ready for war? 9 So also you, if you do not give a clear word through the language, how will it be known what is being said? For you will be speaking into air. 10 So it may be many kinds of sounds are in the world, and not one is without distinct sound. 11 If, then, I do not know the power of the sound, I will be a foreigner to the one speaking, and he speaking in me a foreigner. 12 So also you, since you are zealots of spiritual things, seek to build up the church that you may abound. 13 So then, the one speaking in a language, let him pray that he may interpret. 14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. 15 What then is it? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the mind; I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the mind. 16 Else, if you bless in the spirit, the one occupying the place of the unlearned, how will he say the amen at your giving of thanks, since he does not know what you say? 17 For you truly give thanks well, but the other is not built up. 18 I thank my God that I speak more languages than all of you. 19 But in a church I desire to speak five words with my mind, that I may also instruct others, than myriads of words in a foreign language. 20 Brothers, do not be children in your minds, but in malice be like infants, and in your minds be mature. 21 It has been written in the Law, "By other tongues" and "by other lips" "I will speak to this people," "and even so they will not hear" Me, says the Lord." Isa. 28:11, 12 22 So that tongues are not a sign to those believing, but to those not believing. But prophecy is not to those not believing, but to those believing. 23 Then if the whole church comes together, and all speak in languages, and uninstructed ones or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you rave? 24 But if all prophesy, and some unbeliever or one not instructed comes in, he is convicted by all, he is judged by all. 25 And so the secrets of his heart become revealed; and so, falling on his face, he will worship God, declaring that God is truly among you. 26 Then what is it, brothers? When you come together, each one of you has a psalm, he has a teaching, he has a language, he has a revelation, he has an interpretation. Let all things be for building up. 27 If one speaks in a language, let it be by two or three at the most, and in turn, also let one interpret. 28 And if there is no interpreter, let him be silent in church, and let him speak to himself and to God. 29 And if there are two or three prophets, let them speak, and let the others discern. 30 But if a revelation is revealed to another sitting by, let the first be silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be encouraged. 32 And the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not God of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 34 Let your women be silent in the churches, for it is not allowed to them to speak, but to be in subjection, as also the Law says. 35 But if they desire to learn anything, let them question their husbands at home; for it is a shame for a woman to speak in a church. 36 Or did the Word of God go out from you? Or did it reach only to you? 37 If anyone thinks to be a prophet, or a spiritual one, let him recognize the things I write to you, that they are a command of the Lord. 38 But if any be ignorant, let him be ignorant. 39 So then, brothers, seek eagerly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in languages. 40 And let all things be done decently and in order.
