Acts 4 (WEBP)

[1] As they spoke to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came to them,
[2] being upset because they taught the people and proclaimed in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
[3] They laid hands on them, and put them in custody until the next day, for it was now evening.
[4] But many of those who heard the word believed, and the number of the men came to be about five thousand.
[5] In the morning, their rulers, elders, and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem.
[6] Annas the high priest was there, with Caiaphas, John, Alexander, and as many as were relatives of the high priest.
[7] When they had stood Peter and John in the middle of them, they inquired, “By what power, or in what name, have you done this?”
[8] Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “You rulers of the people and elders of Israel,
[9] if we are examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed,
[10] may it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, this man stands here before you whole in him.
[11] He is ‘the stone which was regarded as worthless by you, the builders, which has become the head of the corner.’
[12] There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven that is given among men, by which we must be saved!”
[13] Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled. They recognized that they had been with Jesus.
[14] Seeing the man who was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
[15] But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,
[16] saying, “What shall we do to these men? Because indeed a notable miracle has been done through them, as can be plainly seen by all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we can’t deny it.
[17] But so that this spreads no further among the people, let’s threaten them, that from now on they don’t speak to anyone in this name.”
[18] They called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
[19] But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, judge for yourselves,
[20] for we can’t help telling the things which we saw and heard.”
[21] When they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people; for everyone glorified God for that which was done.
[22] For the man on whom this miracle of healing was performed was more than forty years old.
[23] Being let go, they came to their own company and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them.
[24] When they heard it, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord and said, “O Lord, you are God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and all that is in them;
[25] who by the mouth of your servant David, said, ‘Why do the nations rage, and the peoples plot a vain thing?
[26] The kings of the earth take a stand, and the rulers plot together, against the Lord, and against his Christ.’°
[27] “For truly,° both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed,
[28] to do whatever your hand and your counsel foreordained to happen.
[29] Now, Lord, look at their threats, and grant to your servants to speak your word with all boldness,
[30] while you stretch out your hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of your holy Servant Jesus.”
[31] When they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were gathered together. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
[32] The multitude of those who believed were of one heart and soul. Not one of them claimed that anything of the things which he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common.
[33] With great power, the apostles gave their testimony of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. Great grace was on them all.
[34] For neither was there among them any who lacked, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold,
[35] and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and distribution was made to each, according as anyone had need.
[36] Joses, who by the apostles was also called Barnabas (which is, being interpreted, Son of Encouragement), a Levite, a man of Cyprus by race,
[37] having a field, sold it and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

Acts 4 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 as they G846 spake G2980 (PresActPtc) unto G4314 the people G2992, the priests G2409, and G2532 the captain G4755 of the temple G2411, and G2532 the Sadducees G4523, came upon G2186 (Aor2ActInd) them G846,
[2] Being grieved G1278 (PresMidPasDepPtc) that G1223 they G846 taught G1321 (PresActInf) the people G2992, and G2532 preached G2605 (PresActInf) through G1722 Jesus G2424 the resurrection G386 from G1537 the dead G3498.
[3] And G2532 they laid G1911 (Aor2ActInd) hands G5495 on them G846, and G2532 put G5087 (Aor2MidInd) [them] in G1519 hold G5084 unto G1519 the next day G839: for G1063 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) now G2235 eventide G2073.
[4] Howbeit G1161 many G4183 of them which heard G191 (AorActPtc) the word G3056 believed G4100 (AorActInd); and G2532 the number G706 of the men G435 was G1096 (AorPasDepInd) about G5616 five G4002 thousand G5505.
[5] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) on G1909 the morrow G839, that their G846 rulers G758, and G2532 elders G4245, and G2532 scribes G1122,
[6] And G2532 Annas G452 the high priest G749, and G2532 Caiaphas G2533, and G2532 John G2491, and G2532 Alexander G223, and G2532 as many as G3745 were G2258 (ImpfInd) of G1537 the kindred G1085 of the high priest G748, were gathered together G4863 (AorPasInf) at G1519 Jerusalem G2419.
[7] And G2532 when they had set G2476 (AorActPtc) them G846 in G1722 the midst G3319, they asked G4441 (ImpfMidPasDepInd), By G1722 what G4169 power G1411, or G2228 by G1722 what G4169 name G3686, have G4160 ye G5210 done G4160 (AorActInd) this G5124?
[8] Then G5119 Peter G4074, filled G4130 (AorPasPtc) with the Holy G40 Ghost G4151, said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Ye rulers G758 of the people G2992, and G2532 elders G4245 of Israel G2474,
[9] If G1487 we G2249 this day G4594 be examined G350 (PresPasInd) of G1909 the good deed done G2108 to the impotent G772 man G444, by G1722 what means G5101 he G3778 is made whole G4982 (PerfPasInd);
[10] Be it G2077 (PresImpr) known G1110 unto you G5213 all G3956, and G2532 to all G3956 the people G2992 of Israel G2474, that G3754 by G1722 the name G3686 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 of Nazareth G3480, whom G3739 ye G5210 crucified G4717 (AorActInd), whom G3739 God G2316 raised G1453 (AorActInd) from G1537 the dead G3498, [even] by G1722 him G5129 doth G3936 this man G3778 stand here G3936 (PerfActInd) before G1799 you G5216 whole G5199.
[11] This G3778 is G2076 (PresInd) the stone G3037 which G3588 was set at nought G1848 (AorPasPtc) of G5259 you G5216 builders G3618 (PresActPtc), which G3588 is become G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) the head G2776 of G1519 the corner G1137.
[12] Neither G2532 G3756 is there G2076 (PresInd) salvation G4991 in G1722 any G3762 other G243: for G1063 there is G2076 (PresInd) none G3777 other G2087 name G3686 under G5259 heaven G3772 given G1325 (PerfPasPtc) among G1722 men G444, whereby G1722 G3739 we G2248 must G1163 (PresInd) be saved G4982 (AorPasInf).
[13] Now G1161 when they saw G2334 (PresActPtc) the boldness G3954 of Peter G4074 and G2532 John G2491, and G2532 perceived G2638 (Aor2MidPtc) that G3754 they were G1526 (PresInd) unlearned G62 and G2532 ignorant G2399 men G444, they marvelled G2296 (ImpfActInd); and G5037 they took knowledge G1921 (ImpfActInd) of them G846, that G3754 they had been G2258 (ImpfInd) with G4862 Jesus G2424.
[14] And G1161 beholding G991 (PresActPtc) the man G444 which was healed G2323 (PerfPasPtc) standing G2476 (PerfActPtc) with G4862 them G846, they could G2192 (ImpfActInd) say G471 nothing G3762 against it G471 (Aor2ActInf).
[15] But G1161 when they had commanded G2753 (AorActPtc) them G846 to go aside G565 (Aor2ActInf) out of G1854 the council G4892, they conferred G4820 (Aor2ActInd) among G4314 themselves G240,
[16] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), What G5101 shall we do G4160 (FutActInd) to these G5125 men G444? for G1063 that G3754 indeed G3303 a notable G1110 miracle G4592 hath been done G1096 (Perf2ActInd) by G1223 them G846 [is] manifest G5318 to all them G3956 that dwell G2730 (PresActPtc) in Jerusalem G2419; and G2532 we cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) deny G720 (AorMidDepInf) [it].
[17] But G235 that G3363 it spread G1268 (AorPasSubj) no G3363 further G1909 G4119 among G1519 the people G2992, let us straitly G547 threaten G546 (AorMidSubj) them G846, that they speak G2980 (PresActInf) henceforth G3371 to no G3367 man G444 in G1909 this G5129 name G3686.
[18] And G2532 they called G2564 (AorActPtc) them G846, and commanded G3853 (AorActInd) them G846 not G3361 to speak G5350 (PresMidPasDepInf) at all G2527 nor G3366 teach G1321 (PresActInf) in G1909 the name G3686 of Jesus G2424.
[19] But G1161 Peter G4074 and G2532 John G2491 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Whether G1487 it be G2076 (PresInd) right G1342 in the sight G1799 of God G2316 to hearken G191 (PresActInf) unto you G5216 more than G3123 G2228 unto God G2316, judge ye G2919 (AorActImpr).
[20] For G1063 we G2249 cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) but G3361 speak G2980 (PresActInf) the things which G3739 we have seen G1492 (Aor2ActInd) and G2532 heard G191 (AorActInd).
[21] So G1161 when they had further threatened them G4324 (AorMidPtc), they let G630 them G846 go G630 (AorActInd), finding G2147 (PresActPtc) nothing G3367 how G4459 they might punish G2849 (AorMidSubj) them G846, because G1223 of the people G2992: for G3754 all G3956 [men] glorified G1392 (ImpfActInd) God G2316 for G1909 that which was done G1096 (Perf2ActPtc).
[22] For G1063 the man G444 was G2258 (ImpfInd) above G4119 forty G5062 years old G2094, on G1909 whom G3739 this G5124 miracle G4592 of healing G2392 was shewed G1096 (PlupfActInd).
[23] And G1161 being let go G630 (AorPasPtc), they went G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G4314 their own company G2398, and G2532 reported G518 (AorActInd) all G3745 that the chief priests G749 and G2532 elders G4245 had said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846.
[24] And G1161 when they heard that G191 (AorActPtc), they lifted up G142 (AorActInd) their voice G5456 to G4314 God G2316 with one accord G3661, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Lord G1203, thou G4771 [art] God G2316, which G3588 hast made G4160 (AorActPtc) heaven G3772, and G2532 earth G1093, and G2532 the sea G2281, and G2532 all G3956 that in G1722 them is G846:
[25] Who G3588 by G1223 the mouth G4750 of thy G4675 servant G3816 David G1138 hast said G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), Why G2444 did G5433 the heathen G1484 rage G5433 (AorActInd), and G2532 the people G2992 imagine G3191 (AorActInd) vain things G2756?
[26] The kings G935 of the earth G1093 stood up G3936 (AorActInd), and G2532 the rulers G758 were gathered G4863 (AorPasInd) together G1909 G846 against G2596 the Lord G2962, and G2532 against G2596 his G846 Christ G5547.
[27] For G1063 of G1909 a truth G225 against G1909 thy G4675 holy G40 child G3816 Jesus G2424, whom G3739 thou hast anointed G5548 (AorActInd), both G5037 Herod G2264, and G2532 Pontius G4194 Pilate G4091, with G4862 the Gentiles G1484, and G2532 the people G2992 of Israel G2474, were gathered together G4863 (AorPasInd),
[28] For to do G4160 (AorActInf) whatsoever G3745 thy G4675 hand G5495 and G2532 thy G4675 counsel G1012 determined before G4309 (AorActInd) to be done G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf).
[29] And G2532 now G3569, Lord G2962, behold G1896 (Aor2ActImpr) G1909 their G846 threatenings G547: and G2532 grant unto G1325 (Aor2ActImpr) thy G4675 servants G1401, that with G3326 all G3956 boldness G3954 they may speak G2980 (PresActInf) thy G4675 word G3056,
[30] By G1722 G4571 stretching forth G1614 (PresActInf) thine G4675 hand G5495 to G1519 heal G2392; and G2532 that signs G4592 and G2532 wonders G5059 may be done G1096 (PresMidPasDepInf) by G1223 the name G3686 of thy G4675 holy G40 child G3816 Jesus G2424.
[31] And G2532 when they G846 had prayed G1189 (AorPasDepPtc), the place G5117 was shaken G4531 (AorPasInd) where G1722 G3739 they were G2258 (ImpfInd) assembled together G4863 (PerfPasPtc); and G2532 they were G4130 all G537 filled G4130 (AorPasInd) with the Holy G40 Ghost G4151, and G2532 they spake G2980 (ImpfActInd) the word G3056 of God G2316 with G3326 boldness G3954.
[32] And G1161 the multitude G4128 of them that believed G4100 (AorActPtc) were G2258 (ImpfInd) of one heart G2588 and G2532 of one G3391 soul G5590: neither G2532 G3761 said G3004 (ImpfActInd) any G1520 [of them] that ought G5100 of the things which he G846 possessed G5224 (PresActPtc) was G1511 (PresInf) his own G2398; but G235 they G846 had G2258 (ImpfInd) all things G537 common G2839.
[33] And G2532 with great G3173 power G1411 gave G591 (ImpfActInd) the apostles G652 witness G3142 of the resurrection G386 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424: and G5037 great G3173 grace G5485 was G2258 (ImpfInd) upon G1909 them G846 all G3956.
[34] Neither G3761 G1063 was G5225 (ImpfActInd) there any G5100 among G1722 them G846 that lacked G1729: for G1063 as many as G3745 were G5225 (ImpfActInd) possessors G2935 of lands G5564 or G2228 houses G3614 sold them G4453 (PresActPtc), and brought G5342 (ImpfActInd) the prices G5092 of the things that were sold G4097 (PresPasPtc),
[35] And G2532 laid [them] down G5087 (ImpfActInd) at G3844 the apostles G652’ feet G4228: and G1161 distribution was made G1239 (ImpfPasInd) unto every man G1538 according G2530 as G302 he had G2192 (ImpfActInd) need G5100 G5532.
[36] And G1161 Joses G2500, who G3588 by G5259 the apostles G652 was surnamed G1941 (AorPasPtc) Barnabas G921, (which G3739 is G2076 (PresInd), being interpreted G3177 (PresPasPtc), The son G5207 of consolation G3874,) a Levite G3019, [and] of the country G1085 of Cyprus G2953,
[37] Having G5225 (PresActPtc) G846 land G68, sold G4453 (AorActPtc) [it], and brought G5342 (AorActInd) the money G5536, and G2532 laid G5087 (AorActInd) [it] at G3844 the apostles G652’ feet G4228.

Young’s Literal Translation

Acts 4 (YLT)

[1] And as they are speaking unto the people, there came to them the priests, and the magistrate of the temple, and the Sadducees-
[2] being grieved because of their teaching the people, and preaching in Jesus the rising again out of the dead-
[3] and they laid hands upon them, and did put them in custody unto the morrow, for it was evening already;
[4] and many of those hearing the word did believe, and the number of the men became, as it were, five thousand.
[5] And it came to pass upon the morrow, there were gathered together of them the rulers, and elders, and scribes, to Jerusalem,
[6] and Annas the chief priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the chief priest,
[7] and having set them in the midst, they were inquiring, ‘In what power, or in what name did ye do this?’
[8] Then Peter, having been filled with the Holy Spirit, said unto them: ‘Rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
[9] if we to-day are examined concerning the good deed to the ailing man, by whom he hath been saved,
[10] be it known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye did crucify, whom God did raise out of the dead, in him hath this one stood by before you whole.
[11] ‘This is the stone that was set at nought by you-the builders, that became head of a corner;
[12] and there is not salvation in any other, for there is no other name under the heaven that hath been given among men, in which it behoveth us to be saved.’
[13] And beholding the openness of Peter and John, and having perceived that they are men unlettered and plebeian, they were wondering-they were taking knowledge also of them that with Jesus they had been-
[14] and seeing the man standing with them who hath been healed, they had nothing to say against it,
[15] and having commanded them to go away out of the sanhedrim, they took counsel with one another,
[16] saying, ‘What shall we do to these men? because that, indeed, a notable sign hath been done through them, to all those dwelling in Jerusalem is manifest, and we are not able to deny it;
[17] but that it may spread no further toward the people, let us strictly threaten them no more to speak in this name to any man.’
[18] And having called them, they charged them not to speak at all, nor to teach, in the name of Jesus,
[19] and Peter and John answering unto them said, ‘Whether it is righteous before God to hearken to you rather than to God, judge ye;
[20] for we cannot but speak what we did see and hear.’
[21] And they having further threatened them, let them go, finding nothing how they may punish them, because of the people, because all were glorifying God for that which hath been done,
[22] for above forty years of age was the man upon whom had been done this sign of the healing.
[23] And being let go, they went unto their own friends, and declared whatever the chief priests and the elders said unto them,
[24] and they having heard, with one accord did lift up the voice unto God, and said, ‘Lord, thou art God, who didst make the heaven, and the earth, and the sea, and all that are in them,
[25] who, through the mouth of David thy servant, did say, Why did nations rage, and peoples meditate vain things?
[26] the kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord and against His Christ;
[27] for gathered together of a truth against Thy holy child Jesus, whom Thou didst anoint, were both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with nations and peoples of Israel,
[28] to do whatever Thy hand and Thy counsel did determine before to come to pass.
[29] ‘And now, Lord, look upon their threatenings, and grant to Thy servants with all freedom to speak Thy word,
[30] in the stretching forth of Thy hand, for healing, and signs, and wonders, to come to pass through the name of Thy holy child Jesus.’
[31] And they having prayed, the place was shaken in which they were gathered together, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and were speaking the word of God with freedom,
[32] and of the multitude of those who did believe the heart and the soul was one, and not one was saying that anything of the things he had was his own, but all things were to them in common.
[33] And with great power were the apostles giving the testimony to the rising again of the Lord Jesus, great grace also was on them all,
[34] for there was not any one among them who did lack, for as many as were possessors of fields, or houses, selling them, were bringing the prices of the thing sold,
[35] and were laying them at the feet of the apostles, and distribution was being made to each according as any one had need.
[36] And Joses, who was surnamed by the apostles Barnabas-which is, having been interpreted, Son of Comfort-a Levite, of Cyprus by birth,
[37] a field being his, having sold it, brought the money and laid it at the feet of the apostles.
