Acts 2 (ASV)
 And when the day of Pentecost was now come, they were all together in one place.
 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
 And there appeared unto them tongues parting asunder, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them.
 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.
 And when this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speaking in his own language.
 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying, Behold, are not all these that speak Galilaeans?
 And how hear we, every man in our own language wherein we were born?
 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, in Judaea and Cappadocia, in Pontus and Asia,
 in Phrygia and Pamphylia, in Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and sojourners from Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
 Cretans and Arabians, we hear them speaking in our tongues the mighty works of God.
 And they were all amazed, and were perplexed, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
 But others mocking said, They are filled with new wine.
 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and spake forth unto them, saying, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and give ear unto my words.
 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose; seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
 but this is that which hath been spoken through the prophet Joel:
 And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour forth of 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:
 Yea and on My servants and on My handmaidens in those days Will I pour forth of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy.
 And I will show wonders in the heaven above, And signs on the earth beneath; Blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke:
 The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the day of the Lord come, That great and notable day.
 And it shall be, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
 Ye men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God unto you by mighty works and wonders and signs which God did by him in the midst of you, even as ye yourselves know;
 him, being delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye by the hand of lawless men did crucify and slay:
 whom God raised up, having loosed the pangs of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
 For David saith concerning him, I beheld the Lord always before my face; For he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
 Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; Moreover my flesh also shall dwell in hope:
 Because thou wilt not leave my soul unto Hades, Neither wilt thou give thy Holy One to see corruption.
 Thou madest known unto me the ways of life; Thou shalt make me full of gladness with thy countenance.
 Brethren, I may say unto you freely of the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us unto this day.
 Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins he would set one upon his throne;
 he foreseeing this spake of the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was he left unto Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption.
 This Jesus did God raise up, whereof we all are witnesses.
 Being therefore by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath poured forth this, which ye see and hear.
 For David ascended not into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
 Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet.
 Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God hath made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom ye crucified.
 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles, Brethren, what shall we do?
 And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
 For to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call unto him.
 And with many other words he testified, and exhorted them, saying, Save yourselves from this crooked generation.
 They then that received his word were baptized: and there were added unto them in that day about three thousand souls.
 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and the prayers.
 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
 and they sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all, according as any man had need.
 And day by day, continuing stedfastly with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread at home, they took their food with gladness and singleness of heart,
 praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to them day by day those that were saved.

Acts 2 (KJVS)
 And G2532 when G1722 the day G2250 of Pentecost G4005 was fully come G4845 (PresPasInf), they were G2258 (ImpfInd) all G537 with one accord G3661 in G1909 one place G846.
 And G2532 suddenly G869 there came G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a sound G2279 from G1537 heaven G3772 as G5618 of a rushing G5342 (PresMidPasPtc) mighty G972 wind G4157, and G2532 it filled G4137 (AorActInd) all G3650 the house G3624 where G3757 they were G2258 (ImpfInd) sitting G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc).
 And G2532 there appeared G3700 (AorPasInd) unto them G846 cloven G1266 (PresMidPasPtc) tongues G1100 like as G5616 of fire G4442, and G5037 it sat G2523 (AorActInd) upon G1909 each G1538 G1520 of them G846.
 And G2532 they were G4130 all G537 filled G4130 (AorPasInd) with the Holy G40 Ghost G4151, and G2532 began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to speak with G2980 (PresActInf) other G2087 tongues G1100, as G2531 the Spirit G4151 gave G1325 (ImpfActInd) them G846 utterance G669 (PresMidPasDepInf).
 And G1161 there were G2258 (ImpfInd) dwelling G2730 (PresActPtc) at G1722 Jerusalem G2419 Jews G2453, devout G2126 men G435, out of G575 every G3956 nation G1484 under G5259 heaven G3772.
 Now G1161 when this G5026 was G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) noised abroad G5456, the multitude G4128 came together G4905 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 were confounded G4797 (AorPasInd), because G3754 that every G1538 man G1520 heard G191 (ImpfActInd) them G846 speak G2980 (PresActPtc) in his own G2398 language G1258.
 And G1161 they were G1839 all G3956 amazed G1839 (ImpfMidInd) and G2532 marvelled G2296 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc) one to another G4314 G240, Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), are G1526 (PresInd) not G3756 all G3956 these G3778 which G3588 speak G2980 (PresActPtc) Galilaeans G1057?
 And G2532 how G4459 hear G191 (PresActInd) we G2249 every G1538 man in our G2257 own G2398 tongue G1258, wherein G1722 G3739 we were born G1080 (AorPasInd)?
 Parthians G3934, and G2532 Medes G3370, and G2532 Elamites G1639, and G2532 the dwellers G2730 (PresActPtc) in Mesopotamia G3318, and G5037 in Judaea G2449, and G2532 Cappadocia G2587, in Pontus G4195, and G2532 Asia G773,
 G5037 Phrygia G5435, and G5037 G2532 Pamphylia G3828, in Egypt G125, and G2532 in the parts G3313 of Libya G3033 about G2596 Cyrene G2957, and G2532 strangers G1927 (PresActPtc) of Rome G4514, G5037 Jews G2453 and G5037 G2532 proselytes G4339,
 Cretes G2912 and G2532 Arabians G690, we do hear G191 (PresActInd) them G846 speak G2980 (PresActPtc) in our G2251 tongues G1100 the wonderful works G3167 of God G2316.
 And G1161 they were G1839 all G3956 amazed G1839 (ImpfMidInd), and G2532 were in doubt G1280 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc) one G243 to G4314 another G243, What G5101 meaneth G2309 (PresActOpt) G302 G1511 (PresInf) this G5124?
 G1161 Others G2087 mocking G5512 (PresActPtc) said G3004 (ImpfActInd), G3754 These men are G1526 (PresInd) full G3325 (PerfPasPtc) of new wine G1098.
 But G1161 Peter G4074, standing up G2476 (AorPasPtc) with G4862 the eleven G1733, lifted up G1869 (AorActInd) his G846 voice G5456, and G2532 said G669 (AorMidDepInd) unto them G846, Ye men G435 of Judaea G2453, and G2532 all G537 [ye] that dwell G2730 (PresActPtc) at Jerusalem G2419, be G2077 (PresImpr) this G5124 known G1110 unto you G5213, and G2532 hearken G1801 (AorMidDepImpr) to my G3450 words G4487:
 For G1063 these G3778 are G3184 not G3756 drunken G3184 (PresActInd), as G5613 ye G5210 suppose G5274 (PresActInd), seeing G1063 it is G2076 (PresInd) [but] the third G5154 hour G5610 of the day G2250.
 But G235 this G5124 is G2076 (PresInd) that which was spoken G2046 (PerfPasPtc) by G1223 the prophet G4396 Joel G2493;
 And G2532 it shall come to pass G2071 (FutInd) in G1722 the last G2078 days G2250, saith G3004 (PresActInd) God G2316, I will pour out G1632 (FutActInd) of G575 my G3450 Spirit G4151 upon G1909 all G3956 flesh G4561: and G2532 your G5216 sons G5207 and G2532 your G5216 daughters G2364 shall prophesy G4395 (FutActInd), and G2532 your G5216 young men G3495 shall see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) visions G3706, and G2532 your G5216 old men G4245 shall dream G1797 (FutPasInd) dreams G1798:
 And G2532 G1065 on G1909 my G3450 servants G1401 and G2532 on G1909 my G3450 handmaidens G1399 I will pour out G1632 (FutActInd) in G1722 those G1565 days G2250 of G575 my G3450 Spirit G4151; and G2532 they shall prophesy G4395 (FutActInd):
 And G2532 I will shew G1325 (FutActInd) wonders G5059 in G1722 heaven G3772 above G507, and G2532 signs G4592 in G1909 the earth G1093 beneath G2736; blood G129, and G2532 fire G4442, and G2532 vapour G822 of smoke G2586:
 The sun G2246 shall be turned G3344 (Fut2PasInd) into G1519 darkness G4655, and G2532 the moon G4582 into G1519 blood G129, before G2228 G4250 that great G3173 and G2532 notable G2016 day G2250 of the Lord G2962 come G2064 (Aor2ActInf):
 And G2532 it shall come to pass G2071 (FutInd), [that] whosoever G3739 G3956 G302 shall call on G1941 (AorMidSubj) the name G3686 of the Lord G2962 shall be saved G4982 (FutPasInd).
 Ye men G435 of Israel G2475, hear G191 (AorActImpr) these G5128 words G3056; Jesus G2424 of Nazareth G3480, a man G435 approved G584 (PerfPasPtc) of G575 God G2316 among G1519 you G5209 by miracles G1411 and G2532 wonders G5059 and G2532 signs G4592, which G3739 God G2316 did G4160 (AorActInd) by G1223 him G846 in G1722 the midst G3319 of you G5216, as G2531 ye yourselves G846 also G2532 know G1492 (PerfActInd):
 Him G5126, being delivered G1560 by the determinate G3724 (PerfPasPtc) counsel G1012 and G2532 foreknowledge G4268 of God G2316, ye have taken G2983 (Aor2ActPtc), and by G1223 wicked G459 hands G5495 have crucified G4362 (AorActPtc) and slain G337 (Aor2ActInd):
 Whom G3739 God G2316 hath raised up G450 (AorActInd), having loosed G3089 (AorActPtc) the pains G5604 of death G2288: because G2530 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) not G3756 possible G1415 that he G846 should be holden G2902 (PresPasInf) of G5259 it G846.
 For G1063 David G1138 speaketh G3004 (PresActInd) concerning G1519 him G846, I foresaw G4308 (ImpfMidInd) the Lord G2962 always G1223 G3956 before G1799 my G3450 face, for G3754 he is G2076 (PresInd) on G1537 my G3450 right hand G1188, that G3363 I should G4531 not G3363 be moved G4531 (AorPasSubj):
 Therefore G1223 G5124 did G2165 my G3450 heart G2588 rejoice G2165 (AorPasInd), and G2532 my G3450 tongue G1100 was glad G21 (AorMidDepInd); moreover G1161 G2089 also G2532 my G3450 flesh G4561 shall rest G2681 (FutActInd) in G1909 hope G1680:
 Because G3754 thou wilt G1459 not G3756 leave G1459 (FutActInd) my G3450 soul G5590 in G1519 hell G86, neither G3761 wilt thou suffer G1325 (FutActInd) thine G4675 Holy One G3741 to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) corruption G1312.
 Thou hast made known G1107 (AorActInd) to me G3427 the ways G3598 of life G2222; thou shalt make G4137 me G3165 full G4137 (FutActInd) of joy G2167 with G3326 thy G4675 countenance G4383.
 Men G435 [and] brethren G80, let G2036 me G1832 (PresPtc) freely G3326 G3954 speak G2036 (Aor2ActInf) unto G4314 you G5209 of G4012 the patriarch G3966 David G1138, that G3754 he is G5053 both G2532 dead G5053 (AorActInd) and G2532 buried G2290 (Aor2PasDepSubj), and G2532 his G846 sepulchre G3418 is G2076 (PresInd) with G1722 us G2254 unto G891 this G5026 day G2250.
 Therefore G3767 being G5225 (PresActPtc) a prophet G4396, and G2532 knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) that G3754 God G2316 had sworn G3660 (AorActInd) with an oath G3727 to him G846, that of G1537 the fruit G2590 of his G846 loins G3751, according to G2596 the flesh G4561, he would raise up G450 (FutActInf) Christ G5547 to sit G2523 (AorActInf) on G1909 his G846 throne G2362;
 He seeing this before G4275 (Aor2ActPtc) spake G2980 (AorActInd) of G4012 the resurrection G386 of Christ G5547, that G3754 his G846 soul G5590 was G2641 not G3756 left G2641 (AorPasInd) in G1519 hell G86, neither G3761 his G846 flesh G4561 did see G1492 (Aor2ActInd) corruption G1312.
 This G5126 Jesus G2424 hath G450 God G2316 raised up G450 (AorActInd), whereof G3739 we G2249 all G3956 are G2070 (PresInd) witnesses G3144.
 Therefore G3767 being G5312 by the right hand G1188 of God G2316 exalted G5312 (AorPasPtc), and G5037 having received G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) of G3844 the Father G3962 the promise G1860 of the Holy G40 Ghost G4151, he hath shed forth G1632 (AorActInd) this G5124, which G3739 ye G5210 now G3568 see G991 (PresActInd) and G2532 hear G191 (PresActInd).
 For G1063 David G1138 is not G3756 ascended G305 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the heavens G3772: but G1161 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) himself G846, The LORD G2962 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto my G3450 Lord G2962, Sit thou G2521 (PresMidPasDepImpr) on G1537 my G3450 right hand G1188,
 Until G2193 I make G302 G5087 (Aor2ActSubj) thy G4675 foes G2190 thy G4675 footstool G4228 G5286.
 Therefore G3767 let G1097 all G3956 the house G3624 of Israel G2474 know G1097 (PresActImpr) assuredly G806, that G3754 God G2316 hath made G4160 (AorActInd) that same G5126 Jesus G2424, whom G3739 ye G5210 have crucified G4717 (AorActInd), both G2532 Lord G2962 and G2532 Christ G5547.
 Now G1161 when they heard G191 (AorActPtc) [this], they were pricked G2660 (Aor2PasDepSubj) in their heart G2588, and G5037 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 Peter G4074 and G2532 to the rest G3062 of the apostles G652, Men G435 [and] brethren G80, what G5101 shall we do G4160 (FutActInd)?
 Then G1161 Peter G4074 said G5346 (ImpfInd) unto G4314 them G846, Repent G3340 (AorActImpr), and G2532 be baptized G907 (AorPasImpr) every one G1538 of you G5216 in G1909 the name G3686 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 for G1519 the remission G859 of sins G266, and G2532 ye shall receive G2983 (FutMidDepInd) the gift G1431 of the Holy G40 Ghost G4151.
 For G1063 the promise G1860 is G2076 (PresInd) unto you G5213, and G2532 to your G5216 children G5043, and G2532 to all G3956 that are afar off G1519 G3112, [even] as many as G3745 the Lord G2962 our G2257 God G2316 shall call G302 G4341 (AorMidDepSubj).
 And G5037 with many G4119 other G2087 words G3056 did he testify G1263 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) and G2532 exhort G3870 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Save yourselves G4982 (AorPasImpr) from G575 this G5026 untoward G4646 generation G1074.
 Then G3303 G3767 they that gladly G780 received G588 (AorMidDepPtc) his G846 word G3056 were baptized G907 (AorPasInd): and G2532 the same G1565 day G2250 there were added G4369 (AorPasInd) [unto them] about G5616 three thousand G5153 souls G5590.
 And G1161 they continued G2258 (ImpfInd) stedfastly G4342 (PresActPtc) in the apostles G652’ doctrine G1322 and G2532 fellowship G2842, and G2532 in breaking G2800 of bread G740, and G2532 in prayers G4335.
 And G1161 fear G5401 came upon G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) every G3956 soul G5590: and G5037 many G4183 wonders G5059 and G2532 signs G4592 were done G1096 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) by G1223 the apostles G652.
 And G1161 all G3956 that believed G4100 (PresActPtc) were G2258 (ImpfInd) together G1909 G846, and G2532 had G2192 (ImpfActInd) all things G537 common G2839;
 And G2532 sold G4097 (ImpfActInd) their possessions G2933 and G2532 goods G5223, and G2532 parted G1266 (ImpfActInd) them G846 to all G3956 [men], as G2530 every man G5100 had G302 G2192 (ImpfActInd) need G5532.
 And G5037 they, continuing G4342 (PresActPtc) daily G2596 G2250 with one accord G3661 in G1722 the temple G2411, and G5037 breaking G2806 (PresActPtc) bread G740 from G2596 house to house G3624, did eat G3335 (ImpfActInd) their meat G5160 with G1722 gladness G20 and G2532 singleness G858 of heart G2588,
 Praising G134 (PresActPtc) God G2316, and G2532 having G2192 (PresActPtc) favour G5485 with G4314 all G3650 the people G2992. And G1161 the Lord G2962 added G4369 (ImpfActInd) to the church G1577 daily G2596 G2250 such as should be saved G4982 (PresPasPtc).
Young’s Literal Translation
Acts 2 (YLT)
 And in the day of the Pentecost being fulfilled, they were all with one accord at the same place,
 and there came suddenly out of the heaven a sound as of a bearing violent breath, and it filled all the house where they were sitting,
 and there appeared to them divided tongues, as it were of fire; it sat also upon each one of them,
 and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, according as the Spirit was giving them to declare.
 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation of those under the heaven,
 and the rumour of this having come, the multitude came together, and was confounded, because they were each one hearing them speaking in his proper dialect,
 and they were all amazed, and did wonder, saying one unto another, ‘Lo, are not all these who are speaking Galileans?
 and how do we hear, each in our proper dialect, in which we were born?
 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and those dwelling in Mesopotamia, in Judea also, and Cappadocia, Pontus, and Asia,
 Phrygia also, and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya, that are along Cyrene, and the strangers of Rome, both Jews and proselytes,
 Cretes and Arabians, we did hear them speaking in our tongues the great things of God.’
 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one unto another, ‘What would this wish to be?’
 and others mocking said,-‘They are full of sweet wine;’
 and Peter having stood up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and declared to them, ‘Men, Jews! and all those dwelling in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and harken to my sayings,
 for these are not drunken, as ye take it up, for it is the third hour of the day.
 ‘But this is that which hath been spoken through the prophet Joel:
 And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of 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 also upon My men-servants, and upon My maid-servants, in those days, I will pour out of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy;
 and I will give wonders in the heaven above, and signs upon the earth beneath-blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke,
 the sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the day of the Lord-the great and illustrious;
 and it shall be, every one-whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, he shall be saved.
 ‘Men, Israelites! hear these words, Jesus the Nazarene, a man approved of God among you by mighty works, and wonders, and signs, that God did through him in the midst of you, according as also ye yourselves have known;
 this one, by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, being given out, having taken by lawless hands, having crucified-ye did slay;
 whom God did raise up, having loosed the pains of the death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it,
 for David saith in regard to him: I foresaw the Lord always before me-because He is on my right hand-that I may not be moved;
 because of this was my heart cheered, and my tongue was glad, and yet-my flesh also shall rest on hope,
 because Thou wilt not leave my soul to hades, nor wilt Thou give Thy Kind One to see corruption;
 Thou didst make known to me ways of life, Thou shalt fill me with joy with Thy countenance.
 ‘Men, brethren! it is permitted to speak with freedom unto you concerning the patriarch David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is among us unto this day;
 a prophet, therefore, being, and knowing that with an oath God did swear to him, out of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, to raise up the Christ, to sit upon his throne,
 having foreseen, he did speak concerning the rising again of the Christ, that his soul was not left to hades, nor did his flesh see corruption.
 ‘This Jesus did God raise up, of which we are all witnesses;
 at the right hand then of God having been exalted-also the promise of the Holy Spirit having received from the Father-he was shedding forth this, which now ye see and hear;
 for David did not go up to the heavens, and he saith himself: The Lord saith to my lord, Sit thou at my right hand,
 till I make thy foes thy footstool;
 assuredly, therefore, let all the house of Israel know, that both Lord and Christ did God make him-this Jesus whom ye did crucify.’
 And having heard, they were pricked to the heart; they say also to Peter, and to the rest of the apostles, ‘What shall we do, men, brethren?’
 and Peter said unto them, ‘Reform, and be baptized each of you on the name of Jesus Christ, to remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,
 for to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call.’
 Also with many more other words he was testifying and exhorting, saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation;’
 then those, indeed, who did gladly receive his word were baptized, and there were added on that day, as it were, three thousand souls,
 and they were continuing stedfastly in the teaching of the apostles, and the fellowship, and the breaking of the bread, and the prayers.
 And fear came on every soul, many wonders also and signs were being done through the apostles,
 and all those believing were at the same place, and had all things common,
 and the possessions and the goods they were selling, and were parting them to all, according as any one had need.
 Daily also continuing with one accord in the temple, breaking also at every house bread, they were partaking of food in gladness and simplicity of heart,
 praising God, and having favour with all the people, and the Lord was adding those being saved every day to the assembly.
