|Then, having been released, they went to their own, and they reported in full what the leaders of the priests and the elders had said to them.
|And when they had heard it, with one accord, they lifted up their voice to God, and they said: “Lord, you are the One who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them,
|who, by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said: ‘Why have the Gentiles been seething, and why have the people been pondering nonsense?
|The kings of the earth have stood up, and the leaders have joined together as one, against the Lord and against his Christ.’
|For truly Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, joined together in this city against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed
|to do what your hand and your counsel had decreed would be done.
|And now, O Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to your servants that they may speak your word with all confidence,
|by extending your hand in cures and signs and miracles, to be done through the name of your holy Son, Jesus.”
|And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered was moved. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. And they were speaking the Word of God with confidence.
