Ch 2 Atti

Atti degli Apostoli 2

2:1 E quando sono stati completati i giorni della Pentecoste, si trovavano tutti insieme nello stesso luogo.
2:2 E improvvisamente, venne dal cielo un suono, come quello di un vento si avvicina con violenza, e riempì tutta la casa dove si trovavano.
2:3 E apparvero loro lingue distinte, come di fuoco, che si stabilirono su ciascuno di essi.
2:4 Ed essi furono tutti pieni di Spirito Santo. E cominciarono a parlare in varie lingue, proprio come lo Spirito Santo donato eloquenza per loro.
2:5 Ora ci sono stati ebrei in Gerusalemme, pii uomini di ogni nazione che è sotto il cielo.
2:6 E quando si è verificato questo suono, la folla si radunò e fu confusa in mente, perché ciascuno li ascoltava parlare la propria lingua.
2:7 Poi tutti erano stupiti, e si chiedevano, detto: "Ecco, non sono tutti Costoro che parlano Galilei?
2:8 E come è possibile che abbiamo ogni loro udito nella nostra lingua, in cui siamo nati?
2:9 Parti, Medi, Elamiti, e coloro che abitano la Mesopotamia, Giudea, della Cappadocia, Del Ponto e dell'Asia,
2:10 Frigia e della Panfilia, Dell'Egitto e delle parti della Libia che sono intorno a Cirene, e nuovi arrivi dei Romani,
2:11 similmente ebrei e nuovi convertiti, Cretesi e Arabi: li abbiamo sentito parlare nelle nostre lingue le grandi opere di Dio “.
2:12 And they were all astonished, e si chiedevano, dicevano tra loro:: “But what does this mean?"
2:13 But others mockingly said, “These men are full of new wine.”
2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and he spoke to them: “Men of Judea, and all those who are staying in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and incline your ears to my words.
2:15 For these men are not inebriated, as you suppose, for it is the third hour of the day.
2:16 But this is what was spoken of by the prophet Joel:
2:17 ‘And this shall be: in the last days, dice il Signore, I will pour out, from my Spirit, upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. And your youths shall see visions, and your elders shall dream dreams.
2:18 E certamente, upon my men and women servants in those days, I will pour out from my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
2:19 And I will bestow wonders in heaven above, and signs on earth below: blood and fire and the vapor of smoke.
2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord arrives.
2:21 E questa sarà: whoever shall invoke the name of the Lord will be saved.’
2:22 Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus the Nazarene is a man confirmed by God among you through the miracles and wonders and signs that God accomplished through him in your midst, just as you also know.
2:23 This man, under the definitive plan and foreknowledge of God, was delivered by the hands of the unjust, afflicted, and put to death.
2:24 And he whom God has raised up has broken the sorrows of Hell, for certainly it was impossible for him to be held by it.
2:25 For David said about him: ‘I foresaw the Lord always in my sight, for he is at my right hand, so that I may not be moved.
2:26 A causa di ciò, my heart has rejoiced, and my tongue has exulted. Per di più, my flesh shall also rest in hope.
2:27 For you will not abandon my soul to Hell, nor will you allow your Holy One to see corruption.
2:28 You have made known to me the ways of life. You will completely fill me with happiness by your presence.’
2:29 fratelli Noble, permit me to speak freely to you about the Patriarch David: for he passed away and was buried, and his sepulcher is with us, even to this very day.
2:30 Dunque, he was a prophet, for he knew that God had sworn an oath to him about the fruit of his loins, about the One who would sit upon his throne.
2:31 Foreseeing this, he was speaking about the Resurrection of the Christ. For he was neither left behind in Hell, nor did his flesh see corruption.
2:32 This Jesus, God raised up again, and of this we are all witnesses.
2:33 Dunque, being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the Promise of the Holy Spirit, he poured this out, just as you now see and hear.
2:34 For David did not ascend into heaven. But he himself said: ‘The Lord said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand,
2:35 until I make your enemies your footstool.’
2:36 Dunque, may the entire house of Israel know most certainly that God has made this same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
2:37 Now when they had heard these things, they were contrite in heart, and they said to Peter and to the other Apostles: “What should we do, noble brothers?"
2:38 Ancora veramente, Peter said to them: “Do penance; and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
2:39 For the Promise is for you and for your sons, and for all who are far away: for whomever the Lord our God will have called.”
2:40 E poi, with very many other words, he testified and he exhorted them, detto, “Save yourselves from this depraved generation.”
2:41 Dunque, those who accepted his discourse were baptized. And about three thousand souls were added on that day.
2:42 Now they were persevering in the doctrine of the Apostles, and in the communion of the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers.
2:43 And fear developed in every soul. Anche, many miracles and signs were accomplished by the Apostles in Jerusalem. And there was a great awe in everyone.
2:44 And then all who believed were together, and they held all things in common.
2:45 They were selling their possessions and belongings, and dividing them to all, just as any of them had need.
2:46 Anche, they continued, daily, to be of one accord in the temple and to break bread among the houses; and they took their meals with exultation and simplicity of heart,
2:47 praising God greatly, and holding favor with all the people. And every day, the Lord increased those who were being saved among them.
