Acts 13:22-40

Rotherham(i) 22 And, setting him aside, raised up, David, unto them for king,––of whom he also said, bearing witness––I have found David, the son of Jesse,––[a man] according to my heart, who will do all my will. 23 From this man’s seed, hath God, according to promise, brought unto Israel, a saviour––Jesus: 24 John, beforehand proclaiming, before the face of his coming in, an immersion of repentance, unto all the people of Israel. 25 And, as John was fulfilling his course, he was saying––Whom are ye supposing that I am? I, am not he! But lo! there cometh, after me, one of whom I am not worthy, the sandals of his feet, to loosen. 26 Brethren! sons of the race of Abraham, and those who among you revere God,––unto you, hath this word of salvation been sent forth. 27 For, they who were dwelling in Jerusalem, and their rulers, not recognising him, have, by judging him, fulfilled, the very voices of the prophets which every sabbath are being read; 28 And, though no single cause of death they found, yet claimed they of Pilate that he should be slain. 29 And, when they had finished all those things which, concerning him, had been written, taking him down from the tree, they put him in a tomb. 30 But, God, raised him from among the dead: 31 Who appeared, during many days, unto them who had come up with him from Galilee unto Jerusalem; who, indeed, [now] are his witnesses unto the people. 32 We, therefore, unto you, bring the good news, as to the promise which, unto our fathers, was made,–– 33 That God hath fulfilled, the same, for our children, by raising up Jesus: as also, in the second psalm, it is written––My son, art, thou: I, this day, have begotten thee. 34 And, in that he raised him from among the dead, no more destined to return unto corruption, on this wise hath he spoken––I will give unto you the faithful lovingkindnesses of David. 35 Wherefore also, in a different [place], he saith––Thou wilt not give thy man of lovingkindness to see corruption. 36 For, David, indeed, unto his own generation having done service, by the counsel of God, fell asleep, and was added unto fathers, and saw corruption; 37 But, he whom God hath raised, did not see corruption. 38 Be it known unto you, therefore, brethren,––that, through this man, unto you, remission of sins is declared; 39 And, from all things from which ye could not, by the law of Moses, be justified, by this man, everyone that believeth, is justified. 40 Be taking heed, therefore, lest that come upon you which hath been spoken in the prophets––
