3 two other of his disciples. Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also come with thee. They went forth, and entered into the boat; and that night they

4 took nothing. But when day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the beach: uowbeit the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.

5 Jesus therefore saith unto them, Children, have ye aught to eat?

6 They answered him, No. And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and ye shah find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes,

7 That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his coat about him (for he was naked), and cast himself into

8 the sea. But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits off),

9 dragging the net full of fishes. So when they got out upon the land, they see a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and

10 bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have

11 now taken. Simon Peter therefore went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, a hundred and fifty and three: and for

12 all there were so many, the net was not rent. Jesus saith unto them, Come and break your fast. And none of the disciples durst inquire of him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the

13 Lord. Jesus cometh, and taketh the bread, and giveth them, and

14 the fish likewise. This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.

15 So when they had broken their fast, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of John, lovest thou me more than these? He

16 saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again a second time, Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him,

17 Tend my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee.

18 Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry

19 thee whither thou wouldst not. Now this he spake, signifying by what manner of death he should glorify God. And when he

20 had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me. Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned back on his breast at the supper, and said, Lord who is he

21 that betrayeth thee? Peter therefore seeing him saith to Jesus,

22 Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou

23 me. This saying therefore went forth among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, that he should not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what it that

to thee? 34 This is the disciple which beareth witness of these things, and

wrote these things: and we know that his witness is true. 25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the

which if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the

world itself would not contain the books that should be written.

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES.

1 The former treatise I made, O Theophilus, concerning all that

2 Jesus began both to do and to teach, until the day in which he was received up, after that he had given commandment through

3 the Holy Ghost unto the apostles whom he had chosen: to whom he also shewed himself alive after his passion by many proofs, appearing unto them by the space of forty days, and speaking the

4 things concerning the kingdom of God: and, being assembled together with them, he charged them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the, Father, which, said he,

5 ye heard from me: for John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

6 They therefore, when they were come together, asked him, saying, Lord, dost thou at this time restore the kingdom to

7 Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father hath set within his own authority.

8 But ye shall receive power, when the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judfea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

9 And when he had said these things, as they were looking, he was

10 taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were looking steadfastly into heaven as he went, behold, two

11 men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye looking into heaven? this Jesus, which was received up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye beheld him going into heaven.

12 Then return they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet,

13 which is nigh unto Jerusalem, a sabbath day's journey off. And when they were come in, they went up into the upper chamber, where they were abiding: both Peter and John and James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas the son of

14 James. These all with one accord continued steadfastly in prayer, with the woman, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

15 And in these days Peter stood up in the midst of the brethren, and said (and there was a multitude of persons gathered together,

16 about a hundred and twenty), Brethren, it was needful that the scripture should be fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost spake before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was guide to them

17 that took Jesus. For he was numbered among us, and received

18 his portion in this ministry. (Now this man obtained a field with the reward of his iniquity; and falling headlong, he burstasunder

19 in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it became known to all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch that in their language that field was called Akeldama, that is, The field of

20 blood.) For it is written in the book of Psalms,

Let his habitation be made desolate, And let no man dwell therein: and,

His office let another take.

21 Of the men thereof which have companied with us all the time

22 that the Lord Jesus went in and went out among us, beginning from the baptism of John, unto the day that he was received up from us, of these must one become a witness with us of hisresur

23 rection. And they put forward two, Joseph called BarsaMms,

24 who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew of

25 these two the one whom thou hast chosen, to take the place in this ministry and apostlesbip, from which Judas fell away, that

26 he might go to his own place. And they gave lots for them; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

2 And when the day of Pentecost was now come, they were all

2 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

3 house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them tongues parting asunder, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one

4 of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

5 Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from

6 every nation under heaven. And when this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that

7 every man heard them speaking in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying, Behold, are not all these

8 which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we, every man in oar

9 own language, wherein we were born? Parthians and Medes and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, in Judaea and Cappa

10 docia, in Pontus and Asia, in Phrygia and Pamphylia, in Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and sojourners from Rome,

11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians, we do hear them

12 speaking in our tongues the mighty works of God. And they were all amazed, and were perplexed, saying one to another,

13 What meaneth this? But others mocking said, They are filled with new wine.

14 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

16 my words. For these are not drunken, as ye suppose; seeing it

16 is but the third hour of the day; but this is that which hath been spoken by,the prophet Joel:

17 And it shall be in the last days, sailh 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:

18 Yea and on my servants and on my handmaidens in those

days Will I pour forth of my spirit; and they shall prophesy.

19 And I will shew wonders in the heaven above, And signs on the earth beneath;

Blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,

Before the day of the Lord come,
That great and notable day:

21 And it shall be, that whosoever shall call on the name of

the Lord shall be saved.

22 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

23 yourselves know; him, being delivered up by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye by the hand of lawless men

24 did crucify and slay: whom God raised up, having loosed the pangs of death: because it was not possible that he should be

23 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:

26 Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; Moreover my flesh also shall dwell in hope:

27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in Hades,
Neither wilt thou give thy Holy One to see corruption.

28 Thou madest known unto me the ways of life;

Thou shalt make me full of gladness with thy countenance.

29 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

30 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

31 set one upon his throne; he foreseeing this spake of the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was he left in Hades, nor did his

82 flesh see corruption. This Jesus did God raise up, whereof we

33 all are witnesses. Being therefore by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath poured forth this, which ye see and hear.

34 For David ascended not into the heavens: but he saith himself,

The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

35 Till I make thine': nies the footstool of thy feet.
