Acts ii. 14. 21. — In those days : Peter standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and spoke to them: Ye men of Judea, and all you that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known to you and with your ears receive my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day: But this is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel: “ And it shall come to pass in the last days (saith the Lord) I will pour out 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. And upon my servants indeed, and upon my handmaids, will I pour out in those days of my spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will shew wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.”

And the multitude of men and women that believed in the Lord was more increased : insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that when Peter came, his shadow at least might overshadow any of them. and they might be delivered from their infirmities.

Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say: arise and walk? But that you may know that the Son of Mau hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy) I say to thee, arise, take up thy bed and go into thy house.

And they were filled with fear, saying: We have seen wonderful things to-day.
