King James Version

Acts 2:1-47

1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilæans? 8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judæa, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? 13Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.

14¶ But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judæa, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 15For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, 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 old men shall dream dreams: 18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: 21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 22Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: 23Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. 25For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 28Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. 32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 35Until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

37¶ Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

41¶ Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

使徒行傳 2:1-47

聖靈降臨

1五旬節那天,門徒聚集在一起。 2忽然,天上發出一陣響聲,好像狂風呼嘯而過,充滿了他們所在的房子, 3又有火焰般的舌頭顯現出來,分別落在各人的頭上。 4大家都被聖靈充滿,得到聖靈所賜的才能,說起別的語言來。

5當時耶路撒冷住著從各國回來的虔誠的猶太人。 6眾人聽見這陣響聲便趕過來,聽見門徒在說他們各自的語言,都十分納悶, 7驚詫地說:「看啊!這些說話的不都是加利利人嗎? 8怎麼會說我們各自的語言呢? 9我們這裡有帕提亞人、瑪代人、以攔人,以及住在美索不達米亞猶太加帕多迦本都亞細亞10弗呂迦旁非利亞埃及和靠近古利奈利比亞的人,還有從羅馬來的猶太人和改信猶太教的人、 11克里特人和阿拉伯人。我們都聽見他們在用我們各自的語言訴說上帝的偉大!」 12他們都大感驚奇和困惑,彼此議論說:「這到底是怎麼回事?」

13有些人就譏笑說:「他們不過是被新酒灌醉了!」

彼得講道

14彼得和其他十一位使徒都站起來,他大聲對眾人說:「各位猶太同胞和住在耶路撒冷的人啊,請留心聽!我告訴你們這是怎麼回事。 15你們以為這些人是醉了,其實不是,因為現在才早上九點鐘。 16你們眼前看見的正是先知約珥所說的,

17『上帝說,在末後的日子,

我要將我的靈澆灌所有的人,

你們的兒女要說預言,

青年要見異象,

老人要做異夢。

18那時,我要將我的靈澆灌我的奴僕和婢女,

他們都要說預言。

19在天上,我要顯異兆;

在地上,我要行神蹟,有血、有火、有濃煙。

20太陽要變得昏暗,

月亮要變得血紅。

這都要發生在主偉大榮耀的日子來臨以前。

21那時,凡求告主名的,都必得救。』

22「各位以色列人啊,請留心聽。上帝藉著拿撒勒人耶穌在你們中間行了異能、奇事和神蹟,以證明拿撒勒人耶穌是祂派來的。這是你們都知道的。 23上帝照著自己的計劃和預知把耶穌交在你們手裡,你們藉著邪惡之人的手把祂釘死在十字架上了。 24但上帝為祂解除了死亡的痛苦,使祂從死裡復活,因為祂不可能被死亡拘禁。 25論到耶穌,大衛曾說,

『我看見主常在我面前,

祂在我右邊,我必不動搖。

26因此我的心歡喜,我的口頌讚,

我的身體也要活在盼望中。

27因為你不會把我的靈魂撇在陰間,

也不會讓你的聖者身體朽壞。

28你已把生命之路指示我,

叫我在你面前充滿喜樂。』

29「弟兄們,我肯定地對你們說,先祖大衛死了,埋葬了,他的墳墓至今還在這裡。 30大衛是先知,知道上帝曾起誓要從他的後裔中選立一人繼承他的王位。 31他預先知道這事,講到基督的復活,說,『祂的靈魂不會被撇在陰間,祂的身體也不會朽壞』。 32上帝已經使這位耶穌復活了!我們都是這件事的見證人。 33現在祂升到上帝的右邊,從天父領受了所應許的聖靈,並將聖靈澆灌下來,你們今天也耳聞目睹了。 34大衛並沒有升到天上,但他曾說,

『主對我主說,

你坐在我的右邊,

35等我使你的仇敵成為你的腳凳。』

36「所以,全體以色列人啊!你們應當確實地知道,上帝已經立這位被你們釘在十字架上的耶穌為主,為基督了。」

37他們聽了彼得的話,覺得扎心,就對彼得和其他使徒說:「弟兄們,我們該怎麼辦呢?」 38彼得說:「你們每一個人都要悔改,奉耶穌基督的名受洗,使你們的罪得到赦免,你們就必領受上帝所賜的聖靈。 39因為這應許是給你們和你們的兒女,以及遠方的人,就是所有被主——我們的上帝呼召的人。」

40然後,彼得還講了許多話警戒、勸勉他們,說:「你們要保守自己脫離這邪惡的世代。」

41結果,那天約有三千人相信了他傳的道,接受了洗禮。 42他們都一心遵守使徒的教導,一起團契、掰餅、禱告。

43大家都滿心敬畏上帝。使徒又行了很多神蹟奇事。 44信徒聚在一起,共用所有的東西。 45他們把田產家業變賣了,按照各人的需要把錢分給大家。 46他們天天同心合意地聚集在聖殿裡敬拜上帝,又在各人家中擘餅聚會,以歡喜、慷慨的心分享食物, 47讚美上帝,受到眾人的喜愛。主使得救的人數與日俱增。
