King James Version

Acts 4:1-37

1And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, 2Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide. 4Howbeit 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, 6And Annas 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. 7And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this? 8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, 9If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that 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. 11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12Neither 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, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. 14And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. 17But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. 18And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. 20For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. 21So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done. 22For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.

23¶ And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. 24And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: 25Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. 29And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

31¶ And when they had prayed, the 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. 32And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common. 33And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. 34Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. 36And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus, 37Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

Peetero ne Yokaana mu Lukiiko lw’Abayudaaya Olukulu

14:1 a Luk 22:4 b Mat 3:7Awo Peetero ne Yokaana baali bakyayogera eri abantu, bakabona, n’omukulu w’abakuumi ba Yeekaalu n’Abasaddukaayo ne bajja gye bali, 24:2 Bik 17:18nga basunguwadde nnyo okuwulira nga Peetero ne Yokaana bayigiriza abantu, ku bwa Yesu, okuzuukira mu bafu. 34:3 Bik 5:18Ne bakwata Peetero ne Yokaana, naye olwokubanga obudde bwali buyise ne babaggalira mu kkomera okutuusa enkeera. 44:4 Bik 2:41Kyokka abantu bangi ku abo abaali bawuliriza abatume ne bakkiriza, era omuwendo gw’abasajja bokka abakkiriza ne guba ng’enkumi ttaano!

54:5 Luk 23:13Enkeera, abafuzi n’abakulembeze b’Abayudaaya, n’abannyonnyozi b’amateeka ne bakuŋŋaanira mu Yerusaalemi. 64:6 Mat 26:3; Luk 3:2Baali ne Ana Kabona Asinga Obukulu, ne Kayaafa, ne Yokaana, ne Alegezanda n’abalala bangi abaalina oluganda ne Kabona Asinga Obukulu. 7Awo abatume bombi ne baleetebwa ne basimbibwa mu maaso g’Olukiiko. Ne bababuuza nti, “Buyinza ki oba linnya ly’ani kwe musinzidde okukola kino?”

84:8 nny 5; Luk 23:13Awo Peetero bwe yajjuzibwa Mwoyo Mutukuvu n’agamba nti, “Abafuzi, n’abakulembeze b’abantu, 94:9 Bik 3:6obanga tubuuzibwa nsonga ey’omusajja eyawonyezeddwa, 104:10 Bik 2:24mutegeere mmwe mwenna n’abantu bonna mu Isirayiri, omusajja ono ayimiridde mu maaso gammwe mu linnya lya Yesu Kristo Omunnazaaleesi, gwe mwakomerera naye Katonda n’amuzuukiza, era kaakano mulamu.

114:11 Zab 118:22; Is 28:16; Mat 21:42“ ‘Oyo ly’Ejjinja abazimbi lye baagaana,

lye lifuuse ejjinja ekkulu ery’oku nsonda.’

124:12 Mat 1:21; Bik 10:43; 1Ti 2:5Tewali mu mulala yenna bulokozi, era tewali linnya ddala na limu mu mannya gonna agaaweebwa abantu, wansi w’eggulu, mwetugwanira okulokolebwa.”

134:13 a Luk 22:8 b Mat 11:25Awo ab’Olukiiko bwe baalaba obuvumu bwa Peetero ne Yokaana, ate n’okutegeera ne bategeera nga tebaasoma, era nga si batendeke, ne beewuunya nnyo, ne bategeera ng’abasajja abo baabeeranga ne Yesu. 14Era bwe baalaba omusajja eyawonyezebwa ng’ayimiridde nabo, n’eky’okubaddamu ne kibabula. 154:15 Mat 5:22Ne babalagira okugira nga babeera wabweru Olukiiko lubakubaganyeko ebirowoozo. 164:16 a Yk 11:47 b Bik 3:6-10Ab’olukiiko ne beebuuzaganya nti, “Abasajja bano tubakole tutya? Kubanga tetuyinza kwegaana ekyamagero eky’amaanyi ekikoleddwa mu bo; buli muntu yenna mu Yerusaalemi akitegedde. 17Naye engeri gye tunaaziyizaamu ebigambo byabwe okwongera okusaasaana kwe kubalabula n’amaanyi baleme kuddayo kwogera na muntu yenna ku linnya lya Yesu.”

184:18 Bik 5:40Ne babayita bakomewo mu Lukiiko, ne babalagira baleme kuddayo nate kwogera ku linnya lya Yesu. 194:19 Bik 5:29Naye Peetero ne Yokaana ne baddamu nti, “Mmwe muba musalawo obanga kituufu mu maaso ga Katonda okuwulira mmwe okusinga okuwulira Katonda. 20Tetuyinza butayogera ku bintu bye twalaba, n’ebigambo bye twawulira.”

214:21 a Bik 5:26 b Mat 9:8Awo Olukiiko bwe lwamala okwongera okubatiisatiisa ne lubaleka ne bagenda, kubanga baabulwa kwe banaasinziira okubabonereza ne batasasamaza bantu. Kubanga abantu bonna baali bagulumiza Katonda olw’ekyo ekyabaawo. 22Omusajja eyawonyezebwa yali assussa mu myaka amakumi ana.

Abakkiriza Okugabanira Awamu Ebyabwe

324:32 Bik 2:44Abakkiriza bonna baalina omwoyo gumu n’omutima gumu; nga tewali agamba nti kino kye nnina kyange ku bwange, wazira nga bonna bagabanira wamu. 334:33 a Luk 24:48 b Bik 1:22Awo abatume ne babuulira nnyo n’amaanyi mangi ku kuzuukira kwa Mukama waffe Yesu, era bonna ne bajjula ekisa kingi. 344:34 Mat 19:21; Bik 2:45Mu bo temwali baali mu kwetaaga, kubanga abo abaalina ettaka oba amayumba, baabitundanga, ensimbi ezivudde mu bye batunze 354:35 a nny 37; Bik 5:2 b Bik 2:45; 6:1ne bazireeta ku bigere by’abatume bagabireko buli muntu ng’okwetaaga kwe bwe kwalinga.
