Acts 2:1-21 Darby’s Translation

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

2 1  And when the day of Pentecost was now accomplishing, they were all together in one place. 2  And there came suddenly a sound out of heaven as of a violent impetuous blowing, and filled all the house where they were sitting. 3  And there appeared to them parted tongues, as of fire, and it sat upon each one of them. 4  And they were all filled with [the] Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave to them to speak forth.

5  Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, pious men, from every nation of those under heaven. 6  But the rumour of this having spread, the multitude came together and were confounded, because each one heard them speaking in his own dialect. 7  And all were amazed and wondered, saying, Behold, are not all these who are speaking Galilaeans? 8  and how do we hear [them] each in our own dialect in which we have been born, 9  Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and those who inhabit Mesopotamia, and Judaea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10  both Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya which adjoin Cyrene, and the Romans sojourning [here], both Jews and proselytes, 11  Cretans and Arabians, we hear them speaking in our own tongues the great things of God? 12  And they were all amazed and in perplexity, saying one to another, What would this mean? 13  But others mocking said, They are full of new wine.

Peter's Address at Pentecost

14  But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and spoke forth to them, Men of Judaea, and all ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give heed to my words: 15  for these are not full of wine, as ye suppose, for it is the third hour of the day; 16  but this is that which was spoken through the prophet Joel, 17  And it shall be in the last days, saith God, [that] I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your elders shall dream with dreams; 18  yea, even upon my bondmen and upon my bondwomen in those days will I pour out of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. 19  And I will give wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20  the sun shall be changed to darkness and the moon to blood, before the great and gloriously appearing day of [the] Lord come. 21  And it shall be that whosoever shall call upon the name of [the] Lord shall be saved.
