Acts 4:23-30

The Believers Pray for Boldness

23 When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 And when they heard it, they lifted their voices a together to God and said, “Sovereign Lord b who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them, 25 who through the mouth of our father David, your servant
Or child; also verses 27, 30
said by the Holy Spirit,

d “‘Why did the Gentiles rage,
and the peoples plot in vain?
26 The kings of the earth set themselves,
and e the rulers were gathered together,
against the Lord and against his f Anointed
Or Christ

27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your h holy servant Jesus i whom you anointed, both j Herod and k Pontius Pilate, along l with the Gentiles and m the peoples of Israel, 28  n to do whatever your hand and o your plan had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord p look upon their threats and grant to your servants
Greek bondservants
to continue to speak your word with all r boldness,
30 while s you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed t through the name of your u holy servant Jesus.”
