Acts 4:13-31
  • 13Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.
  • 14But seeing the man who was healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition.
  • 15But when they had commanded them to leave the council, they conferred with one another,
  • 16saying, "What shall we do with these men? For that a notable sign has been performed through them is evident to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it.
  • 17But in order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to anyone in this name."
  • 18So they called them and charged them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
  • 19But 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,
  • 20for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard."
  • 21And when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way to punish them, because of the people, for all were praising God for what had happened.
  • 22For the man on whom this sign of healing was performed was more than forty years old.
  • 23When they were released, they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them.
  • 24And when they heard it, they lifted their voices together to God and said, "Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything in them,
  • 25who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit, "'Why did the Gentiles rage, and the peoples plot in vain?
  • 26The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord and against his Anointed'--
  • 27for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel,
  • 28to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place.
  • 29And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness,
  • 30while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus."
  • 31And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
