Scripture for Today Acts 2: 14-36

14)But, Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words.

15)”For these are not drunk as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.

16)”But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17)’And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,

That I will pour out My spirit on all flesh;

Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

Your old men shall dream dreams.

18)And on my menservants and maidservants

I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.

19)I will show wonders in heaven above

And signs in the earth beneath;

Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.

20)The sun shall be turned into darkness,

And the moon into blood,

Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.

21)And it shall come to pass

That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’

22)Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth a Man attested by God did through Him in your midst ,as you yourselves also know–

23)”Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands , have crucified, and put to death; because it was not possible that He would be held by it.

25″For David says concerning Him;

‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face,

For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.

26)Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;

Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope

27)For You will not leave my should in Hades,

Nor will not leave my soul in Hades,

Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

28)You have made known too me the ways of life;

You will make me full of joy in Your presence.”
