2  Ngesikhathi usuku loMkhosi WePhentekoste + luqhubeka, bonke babendawonye endaweni efanayo.  Kungazelelwe kwezwakala umsindo uvela ezulwini, unjengowesivunguvungu esinamandla, wagcwala yonke indlu ababehlezi kuyo. +  Kwabonakala izilimi ezibukeka njengamalangabi omlilo kubo, zasakazeka, ngalunye lwahlala phezu kwalowo nalowo kubo,  bonke bagcwala umoya ongcwele, + baqala ukukhuluma ngezilimi ezihlukahlukene, njengoba nje umoya wawubenza bakhulume. +  Ngaleso sikhathi eJerusalema kwakuhlala amaJuda ashisekayo evela kuzo zonke izizwe ngaphansi kwezulu. +  Ngakho lapho kuzwakala lo msindo, isixuku sabuthana futhi sasididekile, ngoba ngamunye kuso wayebezwa bekhuluma ngolimi lwakhe.  Ngempela babemangele kakhulu, bethi: “Bhekani, bonke laba abakhulumayo bangabaseGalile, + akunjalo?  Pho kwenzeka kanjani ukuba ngamunye wethu ezwe ulimi lwakhe aluncela ebeleni?  AmaParte, amaMede + nama-Elamu, + abakhe eMesophothamiya, eJudiya naseKhaphadosiya, ePhontu nasesifundazweni sase-Asiya, + 10  eFrigiya nasePhamfiliya, eGibhithe nasezifundeni zaseLibhiya ngaseKhurene, nezivakashi ezazivela eRoma, abangamaJuda nabangamaproselithe, + 11  abaseKrethe, nabase-Arabhiya—sibezwa bekhuluma ngezilimi zethu ngezinto ezinhle kakhulu zikaNkulunkulu.” 12  Ngempela, bonke babemangele futhi bedidekile, bethi komunye nomunye: “Isho ukuthini le nto?” 13  Nokho, abanye babahleka bathi: “Basuthi iwayini elimnandi.”* 14  Kodwa uPetru wasukuma nabayiShumi Nanye *+ wakhuluma nabo ngezwi elikhulu wathi: “Madoda aseJudiya nani nonke enihlala eJerusalema, makwazeke lokhu kini futhi niwalalele ngokucophelela amazwi ami. 15  Eqinisweni laba bantu abadakiwe njengoba nina nicabanga, ngoba kuseyihora lesithathu losuku.* 16  Kunalokho, yilokhu okwashiwo ngomprofethi uJoweli: 17  ‘ “Ezinsukwini zokugcina,” kusho uNkulunkulu, “ngiyothululela omunye womoya wami phezu kwayo yonke inyama, amadodana enu namadodakazi enu ayoprofetha, izinsizwa zenu zibone imibono, amaxhegu enu aphuphe amaphupho, + 18  ngalezo zinsuku ngiyothululela omunye womoya wami ngisho nasezigqileni zami zesilisa nezesifazane, ziprofethe. + 19  Ngiyokwenza izimangaliso ezulwini phezulu nezibonakaliso emhlabeni phansi—igazi nomlilo namafu entuthu. 20  Ilanga liyophenduka ubumnyama nenyanga ibe yigazi ngaphambi kokuba usuku lukaJehova* olukhulu nolumangalisayo lufike. 21  Wonke umuntu obiza igama likaJehova* uyosindiswa.” ’ + 22  “Madoda akwa-Israyeli, yizwani la mazwi: UJesu umNazaretha wayengumuntu uNkulunkulu amveza obala kini ngemisebenzi yamandla nezimangaliso nezibonakaliso uNkulunkulu azenza ngaye phakathi kwenu, + njengoba nje nani ngokwenu nazi. 23  Lo muntu, owanikelwa ngokuvumelana nenjongo* nangokwazi kusengaphambili kukaNkulunkulu, + nambophela esigxotsheni ngesandla sabantu abangenamthetho nambulala. + 24  Kodwa uNkulunkulu wamvusa + ngokumkhulula emandleni* okufa, ngoba kwakungenakwenzeka ukuba abanjwe yiwo. + 25  Ngoba uDavide uthi ngaye: ‘Ngimgcina ephambi kwami njalo uJehova,* ngoba ungakwesokudla sami ukuze ngingalokothi nginyakaziswe. 26  Ngenxa yalokhu inhliziyo yami yenama nolimi lwami lwajabula kakhulu. Ngiyohlala ethembeni; 27  ngoba ngeke ungishiye* eThuneni,* futhi ngeke umvumele oqotho wakho abone ukonakala. + 28  Ungazisile izindlela zokuphila; uyongenza ngijabule kakhulu uma ungibheka ngomusa.’ + 29  “Madoda, bazalwane, kuvumelekile ukukhuluma nani ngokukhululekile ngoDavide inhloko yomndeni, ukuthi washona, wangcwatshwa, + nethuna lakhe liphakathi kwethu kuze kube namuhla. 30  Ngenxa yokuthi wayengumprofethi, azi ukuthi uNkulunkulu wayefunge kuye ukuthi uyobeka oyedwa enzalweni yakhe esihlalweni sakhe sobukhosi, + 31  wabona kusengaphambili futhi wakhuluma ngokuvuka kukaKristu, ukuthi akashiywanga eThuneni* nenyama yakhe ayikubonanga ukonakala. *+ 32  UNkulunkulu wamvusa lo Jesu, sonke singofakazi balokho. + 33  Ngakho-ke, ngenxa yokuthi waphakanyiselwa kwesokudla sikaNkulunkulu + futhi wamukela kuBaba umoya ongcwele othenjisiwe, + uthulule lokhu enikubonayo nenikuzwayo. 34  Ngoba uDavide akazange anyukele emazulwini, kodwa yena ngokwakhe uthi, ‘UJehova* wathi eNkosini yami: “Hlala ngakwesokudla sami 35  ngize ngibeke izitha zakho zibe yisenabelo sezinyawo zakho.” ’ + 36  Ngakho, yonke indlu ka-Israyeli mayazi ngokuqinisekile ukuthi uNkulunkulu wamenza iNkosi + noKristu, lo Jesu enambethela esigxotsheni.” + 37  Lapho bekuzwa lokhu, kwaba sengathi bahlabeka enhliziyweni, bathi kuPetru nakubo bonke abanye abaphostoli: “Madoda, bazalwane, yini okufanele siyenze?” 38  UPetru wathi kubo: “Phendukani, + yilowo nalowo kini abhapathizwe + egameni likaJesu Kristu ukuze izono zenu zithethelelwe, + khona-ke nizokwamukela isipho sesihle somoya ongcwele. 39  Ngoba lesi sithembiso + senziwa kini nakubantwana benu, nakubo bonke abakude, bonke labo uJehova* uNkulunkulu wethu angase ababizele kuye.” + 40  Wanikeza ubufakazi obuphelele nangamanye amazwi amaningi, elokhu ebakhuthaza ethi: “Sindiswani kulesi sizukulwane esigwegwile.” + 41  Ngakho labo abamukela izwi lakhe ngenjabulo babhapathizwa, + ngalolo suku kwanezelwa abantu abangaba ngu-3 000. + 42  Babekulangazelela ukuqhubeka befunda kubaphostoli, ukuhlangana ndawonye,* ukudla ndawonye + futhi bephikelela emthandazweni. + 43  Ngempela, bonke abantu baqala ukufikelwa ukwesaba, abaphostoli benza izimangaliso nezibonakaliso eziningi. + 44  Bonke ababa amakholwa babendawonye, bahlanganyela yonke into ndawonye, 45  babethengisa izimpahla zabo + nezindawo, imali abayithole lapho bayabele bonke abantu, kuye ngesidingo somuntu ngamunye. + 46  Usuku nosuku babeba khona njalo ethempelini benenjongo efanayo, babedlela emakhaya ahlukahlukene, babelana ukudla ngenjabulo enkulu nangenhliziyo emsulwa, 47  bedumisa uNkulunkulu futhi bethola umusa kubo bonke abantu. Ngesikhathi esifanayo uJehova* waqhubeka enezela kubo nsuku zonke abasindiswayo. +
