katapi HOME Acts 4:23-31 - The Believers Pray for Boldness  Ac.4.23-31 (Jerusalem)

4 23 When they were released they went to their friends and reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 4 24 [ Ex.20.11, Ps.146.6, Is.37.16. ] And 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, 4 25 [ Ps.2.1-2. ] who by the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit,

'Why did the Gentiles rage,
and the peoples imagine vain things?
4 26 The kings of the earth set themselves in array,
and the rulers were gathered together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed' -
4 27 for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, 4 28 to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place. 4 29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to your servants to speak your word with all boldness, 4 30 while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus." 4 31 And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness.
