Peter and John Arrested1 As they were speaking to the people, the priests and a the captain of the temple guard and b the Sadducees c came up to them, 2 being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming ▼
▼ Or in the case of, e in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. 3 And they laid hands on them and f put them in jail until the next day, for it was already evening. 4 But many of those who had heard the ▼
▼ Lit wordmessage believed; and h the number of the men came to be about five thousand. 5 On the next day, their i rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem; 6 and j Annas the high priest was there, and k Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of high-priestly descent. 7 When they had placed them in the center, they began to inquire, “By what power, or in what name, have you done this?” 8 Then Peter ▼
▼ Or having just been filled, m filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ▼
▼ Lit Rulers of the people and elders, o “Rulers and elders of the people, 9 if we are ▼
▼ Lit answeringon trial today for q a benefit done to a sick man ▼
▼ Or by whomas to how this man has been made well, 10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that ▼
▼ Or in, t by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom u God raised from the dead— ▼
▼ Or inby ▼
▼ Or Himthis name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 ▼
▼ Lit This One, y “He is the z stone which was aa rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 “And there is salvation in ab no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”
Threat and Release13 Now as they observed the ac confidence of ad Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and ae began to recognize them ▼
▼ Lit that they had beenas having been with Jesus. 14 And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply. 15 But when they had ordered them to leave the ▼
▼ Or Sanhedrin, ah Council, they began to confer with one another, 16 saying ai “What shall we do with these men? For the fact that a aj noteworthy ▼
▼ Or signmiracle has taken place through them is apparent to all who live in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it. 17 “But so that it will not spread any further among the people, let us warn them to speak no longer to any man al in this name.” 18 And when they had summoned them, they am commanded them not to speak or teach at all ▼
▼ Or on the basis ofin the name of Jesus. 19 But ao Peter and John answered and said to them, ap “Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge; 20 for aq we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.” 21 When they had threatened them further, they let them go (finding no basis on which to punish them) ar on account of the people, because they were all as glorifying God for what had happened; 22 for the man was more than forty years old on whom this ▼
▼ Or signmiracle of healing had been performed. 23 When they had been released, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 And when they heard this, they lifted their voices to God with one accord and said, “O ▼
▼ Or MasterLord, it is You who av made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that is in them, 25 who aw by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said, ‘ ax Why did the ▼
▼ Or nationsGentiles rage,
And the peoples devise futile things?
26 ‘ az The kings of the earth ▼
▼ Or approachedtook their stand,
And the rulers were gathered together
Against the Lord and against His ▼
▼ Or Anointed One; i.e. Messiah, bc Christ.’
27 “For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy ▼
▼ Or Son, be servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both bf Herod and bg Pontius Pilate, along with bh the ▼
▼ Or nationsGentiles and the peoples of Israel, 28 to do whatever Your hand and bj Your purpose predestined to occur. 29 “And ▼
▼ Or as for the present situationnow, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may bl speak Your word with all bm confidence, 30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and ▼
▼ Or attesting miracles, bo signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy ▼
▼ Or Son, bq servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the br place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all bs filled with the Holy Spirit and began to bt speak the word of God with bu boldness.
Sharing among Believers32 And the ▼
▼ Or multitudecongregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them ▼
▼ Lit was sayingclaimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but bx all things were common property to them. 33 And by with great power the apostles were giving bz testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. 34 For there was not a needy person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses ca would sell them and bring the ▼
▼ Lit the prices of the things being soldproceeds of the sales 35 and cc lay them at the apostles’ feet, and they would be cd distributed to each as any had need. 36 Now Joseph, a Levite of ce Cyprian birth, who was also called cf Barnabas by the apostles (which translated means Son of ▼
▼ Or Exhortation or Consolation, ch Encouragement), 37 and who owned a tract of land, sold it and brought the money and ci laid it at the apostles’ feet.
