Acts 4:1-22
And ... the priests and the captain ... and the Sadducees came upon them,
of the temple
as they were speaking to the people,
greatly annoyed
because they were teaching the people
and proclaiming ... the resurrection
from the dead.
in Jesus
And they arrested them
and put them
in custody
until the next day,
for it was already evening.
But many ... ... believed,
of those
who had heard the word
and the number ... came to about five thousand.
of the men
On the next day
their rulers and elders and scribes gathered together
in Jerusalem,
with Annas the high priest
and Caiaphas
and John
and Alexander,
and all
who were of the high- priestly family.
when they had set them
in the midst,
And ... they inquired,
“By what power or by what name did you do this?”
Then Peter, ... said
with the Holy Spirit,
to them,
“Rulers ... and elders,
of the people
if we are being examined
concerning a good deed
done to a crippled man,
by what means this man has been healed,
let it be known
to all
Advantage 1
of you
and to all the people
Advantage 2
of Israel
that ... by him this man is standing before you well.
by the name of Jesus Christ
of Nazareth,
whom you crucified,
whom God raised
from the dead—
This Jesus is the stone
that was rejected by you,
the builders,
which has become the cornerstone.
And there is salvation
in no one else,
for there is no other name
under heaven
given among men
by which we must be saved.”
Now ... they were astonished.
when they saw the boldness
Ground 1
of Peter and John,
and perceived
Ground 2
that they were uneducated, common men,
And they recognized
that they had been
with Jesus.
But ... they had nothing to say
in opposition.
seeing the man
who was healed
beside them,
But ... they conferred
with one another,
when they had commanded them
to leave the council,
“What shall we do
with these men?
For ... is evident
to all the inhabitants
of Jerusalem,
that a notable sign has been performed
through them
and we cannot deny it.
But ... let us warn them
to speak no more
to anyone
in this name.”
in order that it may spread no further
among the people,
So they called them
and charged them
not to speak
or teach at all
in the name
of Jesus.
But Peter and John answered them,
“Whether it is right
in the sight
of God
to listen to you rather than to God,
you must judge,
for we cannot but speak
of what we have seen
and heard.”
when they had further threatened them,
And ... they let them go,
finding no way
to punish them,
because of the people,
for all were praising God
for what had happened.
For the man
on whom this sign ... was performed
of healing
was more than forty years old.
vv23-31 Phrase (Eng)
Acts 4:23-31
When they were released,
they went
to their friends
and reported
what the chief priests and the elders had said
to them.
And when they heard it,
they lifted their voices
to God
and said,
“Sovereign Lord,
Content 1
who made the heaven
and the earth
and the sea
and everything
in them,
who through the mouth
of our father David,
your servant,
by the Holy Spirit,
“‘Why did the Gentiles rage,
and the peoples plot
in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers were gathered
against the Lord
and against his Anointed’ —
for truly
Content 2
in this city
there were gathered
against your holy servant Jesus,
whom you anointed,
both Herod
and Pontius Pilate,
along with the Gentiles
and the peoples
of Israel,
to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined
to take place.
And now, Lord,
Content 3
look upon their threats
and grant
to your servants
to continue
to speak your word
with all boldness,
while you stretch out your hand
to heal,
and signs and wonders are performed
through the name
of your holy servant Jesus.”
And when they had prayed,
the place ... was shaken,
in which they were gathered together
and they were all filled
with the Holy Spirit
and continued
to speak
the word
of God
with boldness.
