Acts 2:14-24

Sunday School was on the Pentecost this week. Fun times! I added Goddess and made the language more gender-inclusive. I left "Lord" alone because I considered it a reference to Christ.

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye people of Jud├Ža, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.

16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith Goddess and God, We will pour out of our Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men and women shall see visions, and your old men and women shall dream dreams:

18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:

21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

22 Ye people of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of Goddess and God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which Goddess and God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God and Goddess, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:

24 Whom Goddess and God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
