Acts 2:23-39

Rotherham(i) 23 The same, by the marked out counsel and foreknowledge of God given up, through the hands of lawless men, suspending, ye slew, 24 Whom, God, raised up, loosing the pangs of death, inasmuch as it was, not possible, for him to continue held fast by it. 25 For, David, saith concerning him—I foresaw the Lord before me continually, because he is, on my right hand, that I may not be shaken; 26 For this reason, was my heart made glad and my tongue exulted,—ye further, even my flesh, shall encamp on hope: 27 Because thou wilt not abandon my soul unto hades, neither wilt thou give thy man of lovingkindness to see corruption; 28 Thou madest known unto me paths of life, thou wilt make me full of gladness with thy countenance. 29 Brethren! it is, allowable, to say with freedom of speech unto you, concerning the patriarch David,—that he both died and was buried, and, his tomb, is among us until this day. 30 Being then, a prophet, and knowing that, with an oath, God had sworn unto him, of the fruit of his loins, to seat on his throne, 31 With foresight, spake he concerning the resurrection of the Christ—that neither was he abandoned unto hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. 32 The same Jesus, hath God raised up, whereof, all we, are witnesses! 33 By the right hand of God, therefore, having been exalted, also, the promise of the Holy Spirit, having received from the Father, He hath poured out this which, yourselves, do see and hear. 34 For, David, hath not ascended into the heavens; but he saith, himself,—Said the Lord unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, 35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36 Assuredly, then, let all the house of Israel know: that, both Lord and Christ, hath God made him, even the same Jesus whom, ye, crucified! 37 And, when they heard this, they were pricked to the heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles—What are we to do, brethren? 38 And Peter [said] unto them—Repent ye, and let each one of you be immersed, in the name of Jesus Christ, into the remission of your sins,—and ye shall receive the free-gift of the Holy Spirit; 39 For, unto you, is the promise, and unto your children,—and unto all them who are afar off: as many soever as the Lord our God shall call unto him.
