Acts 4:23-37 American Standard Version

The Believers Pray for Boldness

23  And being let go, they came to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said unto them. 24  And they, when they heard it, lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, O Lord, thou that didst make the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that in them is: 25  who by the Holy Spirit, [by] the mouth of our father David thy servant, didst say, Why did the Gentiles rage, And the peoples imagine vain things? 26  The kings of the earth set themselves in array, And the rulers were gathered together, Against the Lord, and against his Anointed: 27  for of a truth in this city against thy holy Servant Jesus, whom thou didst anoint, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, were gathered together, 28  to do whatsoever thy hand and thy council foreordained to come to pass. 29  And now, Lord, look upon their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants to speak thy word with all boldness, 30  while thy stretchest forth thy hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of thy holy Servant Jesus. 31  And when they had prayed, the place was shaken wherein they were gathered together; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

All Things in Common

32  And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and soul: and not one [of them] said that aught of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33  And with great power gave the apostles their witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. 34  For neither was there among them any that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35  and laid them at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto each, according as any one had need. 36  And Joseph, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas (which is, being interpreted, Son of exhortation), a Levite, a man of Cyprus by race, 37  having a field, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles' feet.
