Peter and John are apprehended. Their constancy. The church is increased.
1 And as they were speaking to the people, the priests, and the officer of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,
Loquentibus autem illis ad populum, supervenerunt sacerdotes, et magistratus templi, et sadducaei,
2 Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached in Jesus the resurrection from the dead:
dolentes quod docerent populum, et annuntiarent in Jesu resurrectionem ex mortuis :
3 And they laid hands upon them, and put them in hold till the next day; for it was now evening.
et injecerunt in eos manus, et posuerunt eos in custodiam in crastinum : erat enim jam vespera.
4 But many of them who had heard the word, believed; and the number of the men was made five thousand.
Multi autem eorum, qui audierant verbum, crediderunt : et factus est numerus virorum quinque millia.
5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their princes, and ancients, and scribes, were gathered together in Jerusalem;
Factum est autem in crastinum, ut congregarentur principes eorum, et seniores, et scribae in Jerusalem.
6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest.
Et Annas princeps sacerdotum, et Caiphas, et Joannes, et Alexander, et quotquot erant de genere sacerdotali.
7 And setting them in the midst, they asked: By what power, or by what name, have you done this?
Et statuentes eos in medio, interrogabant : In qua virtute, aut in quo nomine fecistis hoc vos?
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said to them: Ye princes of the people, and ancients, hear:
Tunc repletus Spiritu Sancto Petrus, dixit ad eos : Principes populi, et seniores, audite :
9 If we this day are examined concerning the good deed done to the infirm man, by what means he hath been made whole:
si nos hodie dijudicamur in benefacto hominis infirmi, in quo iste salvus factus est,
10 Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God hath raised from the dead, even by him this man standeth here before you whole.
notum sit omnibus vobis, et omni plebi Israel : quia in nomine Domini nostri Jesu Christi Nazareni, quem vos crucifixistis, quem Deus suscitavit a mortuis, in hoc iste astat coram vobis sanus.
11 This is the stone which was rejected by you the builders, which is become the head of the corner.
Hic est lapis qui reprobatus est a vobis aedificantibus, qui factus est in caput anguli :
12 Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved.
et non est in alio aliquo salus. Nec enim aliud nomen est sub caelo datum hominibus, in quo oporteat nos salvos fieri.
13 Now seeing the constancy of Peter and of John, understanding that they were illiterate and ignorant men, they wondered; and they knew them that they had been with Jesus.
Videntes autem Petri constantiam, et Joannis, comperto quod homines essent sine litteris, et idiotae, admirabantur, et cognoscebant eos quoniam cum Jesu fuerant :
14 Seeing the man also who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
hominem quoque videntes stantem cum eis, qui curatus fuerat, nihil poterant contradicere.
15 But they commanded them to go aside out of the council; and they conferred among themselves,
Jusserunt autem eos foras extra concilium secedere : et conferebant ad invicem,
16 Saying: What shall we do to these men? for indeed a known miracle hath been done by them, to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: it is manifest, and we cannot deny it.
dicentes : Quid faciemus hominibus istis? quoniam quidem notum signum factum est per eos, omnibus habitantibus Jerusalem : manifestum est, et non possumus negare.
17 But that it may be no farther spread among the people, let us threaten them that they speak no more in this name to any man.
Sed ne amplius divulgetur in populum, comminemur eis, ne ultra loquantur in nomine hoc ulli hominum.
18 And calling them, they charged them not to speak at all, nor teach in the name of Jesus.
Et vocantes eos, denuntiaverunt ne omnino loquerentur, neque docerent in nomine Jesu.
19 But Peter and John answering, said to them: If it be just in the sight of God, to hear you rather than God, judge ye.
Petrus vero et Joannes respondentes, dixerunt ad eos : Si justum est in conspectu Dei, vos potius audire quam Deum, judicate.
20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
Non enim possumus quae vidimus et audivimus non loqui.
21 But they threatening, sent them away, not finding how they might punish them, because of the people; for all men glorified what had been done, in that which had come to pass.
At illi comminantes dimiserunt eos : non invenientes quomodo punirent eos propter populum, quia omnes clarificabant id quod factum fuerat in eo quod acciderat.
22 For the man was above forty years old, in whom that miraculous cure had been wrought.
Annorum enim erat amplius quadraginta homo, in quo factum fuerat signum istud sanitatis.
23 And being let go, they came to their own company, and related all that the chief priests and ancients had said to them.
Dimissi autem venerunt ad suos, et annuntiaverunt eis quanta ad eos principes sacerdotum et seniores dixissent.
24 Who having heard it, with one accord lifted up their voice to God, and said: Lord, thou art he that didst make heaven and earth, the sea, and all things that are in them.
Qui cum audissent, unanimiter levaverunt vocem ad Deum, et dixerunt : Domine, tu es qui fecisti caelum et terram, mare et omnia quae in eis sunt :
25 Who, by the Holy Ghost, by the mouth of our father David, thy servant, hast said: Why did the Gentiles rage, and the people meditate vain things?
qui Spiritu Sancto per os patris nostri David, pueri tui, dixisti : Quare fremuerunt gentes, et populi meditati sunt inania?
26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes assembled together against the Lord and his Christ.
Astiterunt reges terrae, et principes convenerunt in unum adversus Dominum, et adversus Christum ejus?
27 For of a truth there assembled together in this city against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel,
Convenerunt enim vere in civitate ista adversus sanctum puerum tuum Jesum, quem unxisti, Herodes, et Pontius Pilatus, cum gentibus, et populis Israel,
28 To do what thy hand and thy counsel decreed to be done.
facere quae manus tua et consilium tuum decreverunt fieri.
29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings, and grant unto thy servants, that with all confidence they may speak thy word,
Et nunc, Domine, respice in minas eorum, et da servis tuis cum omni fiducia loqui verbum tuum,
30 By stretching forth thy hand to cures, and signs, and wonders to be done by the name of thy holy Son Jesus.
in eo quod manum tuam extendas ad sanitates, et signa, et prodigia fieri per nomen sancti filii tui Jesu.
31 And when they had prayed, the place was moved wherein they were assembled; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spoke the word of God with confidence.
Et cum orassent, motus est locus in quo erant congregati : et repleti sunt omnes Spiritu Sancto, et loquebantur verbum Dei cum fiducia.
32 And the multitude of believers had but one heart and one soul: neither did any one say that aught of the things which he possessed, was his own; but all things were common unto them.
Multitudinis autem credentium erat cor unum, et anima una : nec quisquam eorum quae possidebat, aliquid suum esse dicebat, sed erant illis omnia communia.
33 And with great power did the apostles give testimony of the resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord; and great grace was in them all.
Et virtute magna reddebant Apostoli testimonium resurrectionis Jesu Christi Domini nostri : et gratia magna erat in omnibus illis.
34 For neither was there any one needy among them. For as many as were owners of lands or houses, sold them, and brought the price of the things they sold,
Neque enim quisquam egens erat inter illos. Quotquot enim possessores agrorum aut domorum erant, vendentes afferebant pretia eorum quae vendebant,
35 And laid it down before the feet of the apostles. And distribution was made to every one, according as he had need.
et ponebant ante pedes Apostolorum. Dividebatur autem singulis prout cuique opus erat.
36 And Joseph, who, by the apostles, was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, by interpretation, The son of consolation,) a Levite, a Cyprian born,
Joseph autem, qui cognominatus est Barnabas ab Apostolis ( quod est interpretatum Filius consolationis), Levites, Cyprius genere,
37 Having land, sold it, and brought the price, and laid it at the feet of the apostles.
cum haberet agrum, vendidit eum, et attulit pretium, et posuit ante pedes Apostolorum.
