||And when they had brought them, they stood them before the council. And the high priest questioned them,
||and said: “We strongly order you not to teach in this name. For behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and you wish to bring the blood of this man upon us.”
||But Peter and the Apostles responded by saying: “It is necessary to obey God, more so than men.
||The God of our fathers has raised up Jesus, whom you put to death by hanging him on a tree.
||It is he whom God has exalted at his right hand as Ruler and Savior, so as to offer repentance and the remission of sins to Israel.
||And we are witnesses of these things, with the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to all who are obedient to him.”
||When they had heard these things, they were deeply wounded, and they were planning to put them to death.
