Acts 2:1-47

1 And during the arriving of the day of Pentecost, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly a sound like a violent rushing wind came out of heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared to them dividing tongues as of fire and sat upon each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit was giving to them to utter forth. 5 Now there were Jews dwelling in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 Now of this sound having come about, the multitude came together and was confounded, because each one was hearing them speaking the own language. 7 And they were amazed and were marveling, saying, “Behold, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how do we each hear our own language in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites; and those inhabiting Mesopotamia, also Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 both Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya around Cyrene; and those visiting from Rome, 11 both Jews and converts; Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the great things of God!” 12 And all were amazed, and were perplexed, saying to one another, “What wishes this to be?” 13 But others mocking were saying, “They are full of new wine.” 14 But Peter, having stood up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and spoke forth to them: “Men of Judea and all those inhabiting Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give heed to my words. 15 For these are not drunkards as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that having been spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘And it will be in the last days, God says, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your elders will dream dreams. 18 And even upon My servants, and upon My handmaidens, I will pour out of My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 And I will show wonders in the heaven above, and signs 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 great and glorious day of the Lord coming. 21 And it shall be that everyone who shall call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.’ 22 Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man having been set forth by God to you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by Him in your the midst, as you yourselves know, 23 Him delivered up by the determinate plan and foreknowledge of God, you put to death, having crucified Him by lawless hands, 24 whom God raised up, having loosed the agony of death, inasmuch as it was not possible for Him to be held by it. 25 For David says about Him: ‘I foresaw the Lord before me continually; because He is at my right hand, I should not be shaken. 26 Because of this my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced, and now also my flesh will dwell in hope, 27 for You will not abandon my soul into Hades, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see decay. 28 You have made known to me the paths of life, You will fill me with joy in Your presence.’ 29 Men, brothers, it is permitted me to speak with freedom to you concerning the patriarch David, that both he died and was buried, and his tomb is among us unto this day, 30 being therefore a prophet and knowing that God swore to him with an oath to set out of the fruit of his loins upon his throne. 31 Having foreseen, he spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was He abandoned into Hades, nor did His flesh see decay. 32 This Jesus God has raised up, to which we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore having been exalted at the right hand of God, and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, He has poured out this which you are both seeing and hearing. 34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, 35 until I place Your enemies as a footstool of Your feet.”’ 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.” 37 And having heard, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Men, brothers, what shall we do?” 38 And Peter says to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your 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 at a distance, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself.” 40 And he earnestly testified many other words and was exhorting them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41 Therefore those indeed having received his word were baptized, and on that day about three thousand souls were added. 42 Now they were steadfastly continuing in the teaching of the apostles, and in the fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers. 43 And awe was coming upon every soul, and both many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. 44 And all those having believed were together the same, and having all things in common. 45 And they were selling the possessions and the goods, and were dividing them to all, as anyone had need. 46 And every day they were steadfastly continuing with one accord in the temple and breaking bread at each house. They were partaking of food with gladness and sincerity of heart, 47 praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord kept adding every day to their number those who were being saved.

Romans 8:26

26 Now likewise also, the Spirit joins to help us in weakness; for we do not know the things which we should pray for as it behooves, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession with inexpressible groanings.

1 Corinthians 14:2

2 For the one speaking in a tongue speaks not to men, but to God. For no one hears, but in the Spirit he utters mysteries.
