1 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,
2 aBeing grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
4 Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, 6 And bAnnas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. 7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, cBy what power, or by what name, have ye done this? 8 dThen Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, 9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, ethat by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 fThis is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 gNeither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, hand perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. 14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 Saying, iWhat shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is jmanifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. 17 But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. 18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, kWhether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. 20 mFor we cannot but speak the things which lwe have seen and heard. 21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, nbecause of the people: for all men glorified God for othat which was done. 22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.
23 And being let go, pthey went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. 24 And when they heard that, they rlifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, qthou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: 25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, sWhy did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against tthy holy child Jesus, uwhom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28 vFor to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. 29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, wthat with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; xand that signs and wonders may be done yby the name of thy holy child Jesus.
31 And when they had prayed, zthe place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. 32 And the multitude of them that believed bwere of one heart and of one soul: aneither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33 And with cgreat power gave the apostles dwitness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and egreat grace was upon them all. 34 fNeither was there any among them that lacked: for gas many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35 And laid them down at the apostles' feet: hand distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. 36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus, 37 iHaving land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles' feet.
