Acts 4


Five Thousand Believe

1[3speaking 1And 2of their] to the people, [3stood by 4them 1the 2priests], and the commandant of the temple, and the Sadducees, 2being worked up because of their teaching the people, and announcing in Jesus the resurrection of the dead. 3And they put upon them the hands, and put them in keep until the morrow; for it was evening already. 4But many of the ones hearing the word believed; and [5was 1the 2number 3of the 4men] about [2thousand 1five].

Peter and John before the Sanhedrin

5And it came to pass on the morrow, [3gathered together 1their 2rulers], and elders, and scribes in Jerusalem, 6and Annas the chief priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the family of the chief priest. 7And having stood them in the midst, they inquired, By what power, or in whose name do you this? 8Then Peter, filled [2spirit 1of holy], said to them, Rulers of the people, and elders of Israel. 9If we today are questioned about a good work [2man 1of the infirm], by how this one was delivered; 10let it be made known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by this one this man stands before you in health. 11This one is the stone being treated with contempt by you the ones building, the one becoming for head of the corner. 12And there is not [2in 4other 3no one 1deliverance]; for neither [3name 1is there 2another] under heaven being given to men by which [2must 3be delivered 1we]. 13And viewing the open manner of Peter and John, and taking it in that [3men 2illiterate 1they are] and common people, they marvelled; and they recognized them, that [2with 3Jesus 1they were]. 14[3the 1But 4man 2seeing] with them standing, the one having been cured, [2nothing 1they had] to contradict. 15And having bid them [2outside 3the 4sanhedrin 1to go forth], they engaged with one another, 16saying, What shall we do to these men? For indeed a known sign having taken place through them [2to all 3the ones 4dwelling 5in Jerusalem 1is apparent]; and we are not able to deny it. 17But that [2not 4unto 5more 1it should 3be spread] among the people, with intimidation we should press upon them, to no longer speak in this name to not one of men. 18And having called them, they summoned them [3altogether 1to not 2utter a sound] nor to teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answering to them said, If it is just before God to hearken to you rather than God, you judge! 20[3are not 4able 1For 2we] what we know and hear to not speak. 21And the one adding threats released them, [2nothing 1finding] how they shall punish them, on account of the people. For all glorified God over the thing having taken place. 22[7years old 1For 4was 5more than 6forty 2the 3man] upon which had taken place this sign of healing. 23And having been released, they came to their own, and reported as much as [7to 8them 1the 2chief priests 3and 4the 5elders 6said]. 24 And having heard, with one accord they lifted a voice to God, and said, O Master, you are God, the one making the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and all the things in them; 25the one [2through 3the mouth 4of David 5your servant 1having spoken], Why do [2neigh 1nations], and peoples meditate upon vain things? 26[5stood 1The 2kings 3of the 4earth], and the rulers gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27For they gathered together in truth against the holy one, your servant Jesus, whom you anointed -- both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with nations, and peoples of Israel, 28to do as much as your hand and your counsel predefined to take place. 29And at present, O Lord, look upon their intimidations, and grant to your servants with every open manner to speak your word! 30in the thing [2your hand 1you stretching out] for healing; and signs and miracles to take place through the name [2holy 3servant 1of your] Jesus. 31And in their beseeching [7was shaken 1the 2place 3in 4which 5they were 6being gathered together], and they were [2filled 1all 4spirit 3of holy], and they spoke the word of God with confidence. 32And the multitude of the ones believing was [2heart 3and 4soul 1of one]; and not even one [2anything 3existing 4to him 1said] to be his own; but [2were 4to them 1all things 3in common]. 33And with great power [3rendered 4testimony 1the 2apostles] of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus; [3favor 1and 2great] was upon all of them. 34For neither [2lacking 1anyone] existed among them; for as many as were owners of places or houses existing to them, by selling they brought the value of the things being sold, 35and they put it by the feet of the apostles; and it was distributed to each in so far as any should [2need 1have]. 36And Joses, the one being called Barnabas by the apostles, (which is, being translated, Son of Comfort), a Levite, a Cypriot by race, 37[3existing 4to him 2a field 1having sold], brought the thing, and put it by the feet of the apostles.
