Acts 4

And as they spake unto the people, the priests (kohanim), and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through YHWH the resurrection from the dead.

3 And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day; for it was now eventide.

4 Howbeit many of them who heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,

6 And Annas the high priest (kohen hagadol), and Caiaphas, and John (Yochanan), and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest (kohen hagadol), were gathered together at Jerusalem (Yerushalayim).

7 And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, “By what power, or by what name, have you done this?”

8 Then Peter (Kefa), filled with the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh), said unto them, “You rulers of the people, and elders of Yisrael,

9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;

10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Yisrael, that by the name of YHWH haMashiach of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God (Elohim) raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stands here before you whole.

11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. – Psa. 118:22

12 Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter (Kefa) and John (Yochanan), and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with YHWH.

14 And beholding the man who was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,

16 Saying, “What shall we do to these men? For that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem (Yerushalayim); and we cannot deny it.

17 But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.”

18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of YHWH.

19 But Peter (Kefa) and John (Yochanan) answered and said unto them, “Whether it be right in the sight of God (Elohim) to hearken unto you more than unto God (Elohim), judge you.

20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people; for all men glorified God (Elohim) for that which was done.

22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.

23 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests (kohanim) and elders had said unto them.

24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God (Elohim) with one accord, and said, “Lord (Adonai), You are the God (El), who hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is;

25 Who by the mouth of your servant Dawid hast said, ‘Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? – Psa. 2:1

26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against יהוה, and against His Anointed (Mashiach). – Psa. 2:2

27 For of a truth against Your holy Child YHWH, whom You have anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles (Goyim), and the people of Yisrael, were gathered together,

28 For to do whatsoever Your hand and Your counsel determined before to be done.

29 And now, יהוה (YHWH) behold their threatenings; and grant unto Your servants, that with all boldness they may speak Your word,

30 By stretching forth Your hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of Your holy Child YHWH.

31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit (Ruach haQodesh), and they spake the word of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) with boldness.

32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul; neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord (Adonai) YHWH; and great grace was upon them all.

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked; for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

35 And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

36 And Joses (Yosef), who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite (Lewi), and of the country of Cyprus,

37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
