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.

52:5 Bik 8:2Waaliwo Abayudaaya bangi abatya Katonda abaali bazze mu Yerusaalemi nga bavudde mu buli ggwanga wansi w’eggulu. 6Bwe baawulira okuwuuma okwo, ekibiina kinene ne kikuŋŋaana, ne beewuunya okuwulira nga buli muntu awulira olulimi lw’ewaabwe. 72:7 a nny 12 b Bik 1:11Ne bawuniikirira ne beewuunya ne bagamba nti, “Bano bonna aboogera si Bagaliraaya? 8Kale lwaki tuwulira buli muntu olulimi lw’ewaffe gye twazaalibwa? 92:9 a 1Pe 1:1 b Bik 18:2 c Bik 16:6; Bar 16:5; 1Ko 16:19; 2Ko 1:8Tubawulira nga boogera eby’amagero bya Katonda mu nnimi ez’Abapaazi, n’Abameedi, n’Abeeramiti, n’ez’abalala abava e Mesopotamiya, ne Buyudaaya, ne Kapadokiya, mu Ponto ne mu Asiya, 102:10 a Bik 16:6; 18:23 b Bik 13:13; 15:38 c Mat 27:32ne mu Fulugiya ne mu Panfuliya, n’abamu abava mu Misiri, n’ensi za Libiya okuliraana Kuleene, n’abagenyi Abaruumi, 11Abayudaaya, n’abakyuka ne basoma Ekiyudaaya, n’Abakuleete n’Abawalabu.” 12Bonna ne beewuunya nga bawuniikiridde, ne bagambagana nti, “Kino kitegeeza ki?”
132:13 1Ko 14:23Naye abalala ne baseka busesi nga bagamba nti, “Banywedde mwenge musu!”
Okwogera kwa Peetero
14Awo Peetero n’asituka n’abatume ekkumi n’omu, n’asitula ku ddoboozi n’ayogera eri ekibiina, n’abagamba nti, “Abasajja Abayudaaya, nammwe mwenna ababeera mu Yerusaalemi, mutegeere bino era mumpulirize. 152:15 1Bs 5:7Abantu bano tebatamidde nga bwe mulowooza, kubanga essaawa ziri ssatu ez’enkya! 16Naye kino kye kyayogerwako nnabbi Yoweeri nti,

ndifuka Omwoyo wange ku balina omubiri bonna. Batabani bammwe ne bawala bammwe baliwa obunnabbi;
n’abavubuka bammwe balyolesebwa,
n’abakadde baliroota ebirooto.
182:18 Bik 21:9-12Mu biro ebyo ndifuka Omwoyo wange,
