And opening his mouth, Peter said, In truth I perceive that God is not a respecter of persons,
But in every nation he who fears Him and works righteousness is acceptable to Him.
The word which He sent to the sons of Israel in announcing the gospel of peace through Jesus Christ (this One is Lord of all)
You yourselves know, the word which has been spoken throughout the whole of Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism which John proclaimed:
Jesus, the One from Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all those who were being oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
And we are witnesses of all the things which He did, both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem; whom also they did away with by hanging Him on a tree.
This One, God raised on the third day; and He has made Him manifest,
Not to all the people, but to witnesses appointed beforehand by God, to us, ones who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead.
And He has charged us to proclaim to the people and solemnly testify that this is the One who was designated by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead.
To this One all the prophets testify that through His name everyone who believes into Him will receive forgiveness of sins.
While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those hearing the word.
And the believers who were of the circumcision, as many as had accompanied Peter, were amazed, because on the Gentiles also the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out;
For they heard them speaking in tongues and magnifying God. Then Peter answered,
Can anyone forbid the water so that these would not be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit even as we?
And he charged them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days.
