Acts 2 32-41

 This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses.33 Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing. 34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord,

“Sit at my right hand,

35 

    until I make your enemies your footstool.”’

36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38 And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.” 40 And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.” 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.

Psalm 73 16-28

But when I thought how to understand this,

    it seemed to me a wearisome task,

17 

until I went into the sanctuary of God;

    then I discerned their end.

18 

Truly you set them in slippery places;

    you make them fall to ruin.

19 

How they are destroyed in a moment,

    swept away utterly by terrors!

20 

Like a dream when one awakes,

    O Lord, when you rouse yourself, you despise them as phantoms.

21 

When my soul was embittered,

    when I was pricked in heart,

22 

I was brutish and ignorant;

    I was like a beast toward you.

23 

Nevertheless, I am continually with you;

    you hold my right hand.

24 

You guide me with your counsel,

    and afterward you will receive me to glory.

25 

Whom have I in heaven but you?

    And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.

26 

My flesh and my heart may fail,

    but God is the strength[b] of my heart and my portion forever.

27 

For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;

    you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you.

28 

But for me it is good to be near God;

    I have made the Lord God my refuge,    that I may tell of all your works.
