44-1:16†††† Men and brethren, This Scripture must needs haue beene fulfilled, which the holy Ghost by the mouth of Dauid spake before concerning Iudas, which was guide to them that took Iesus.

44-1:17†††† For hee was numbred with vs, and had obtained part of this ministerie.

44-1:22†††† Beginning from the baptisme of Iohn, vnto that same day that he was taken vp from vs, must one be ordained to be a witnesse with vs of his resurrection.

44-1:23†††† And they appointed two, Ioseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Iustus, and Matthias.

44-1:24†††† And they prayed, and said, Thou Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,

44-2:7††††† And they were all amazed, and marueiled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speake, Galileans?

44-2:8††††† And how heare we euery man in our owne tongue, wherein we were borne?

44-2:9††††† Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Iudea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

44-2:10†††† Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya, about Cyrene, & strangers of Rome, Iewes and Proselites,

44-2:11†††† Cretes, and Arabians, we doe heare them speake in our tongues the wonderfull workes of God.

44-2:24†††† Whom God hath raised vp, hauing loosed the paines of death: because it was not possible that hee should be holden of it.

44-2:25†††† For Dauid speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord alwayes before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moued.

44-2:26†††† Therefore did my heart reioyce, and my tongue was glad: Moreouer also, my flesh shall rest in hope,

44-2:27†††† Because thou wilt not leaue my soule in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy one to see corruption.

44-2:30†††† Therefore being a Prophet, and knowing that God had sworne with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loines, according to the flesh, hee would raise vp Christ, to sit on his throne:

44-2:31†††† He seeing this before, spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soule was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

44-2:32†††† This Iesus hath God raised vp, whereof we all are witnesses.

44-2:33†††† Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and hauing receiued of the Father the promise of the holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and heare.

44-2:34†††† For Dauid is not ascended into the heauens, but he saith himselfe, The Lord said vnto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

44-2:35†††† Untill I make thy foes thy footstoole.

44-2:36†††† Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Iesus, whom ye haue crucified, both Lord and Christ.

44-2:37†††† Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said vnto Peter, and to the rest of the Apostles, Men and brethren, What shall we doe?

44-2:38†††† Then Peter said vnto them, Repent, and be baptized euery one of you in the Name of Iesus Christ, for the remission of sinnes, and ye shal receiue the gift of the holy Ghost.

44-2:40†††† And with many other words did hee testifie and exhort, saying, Saue your selues from this vntoward generation.

44-2:41†††† Then they that gladly receiued his word, were baptized: and the same day there were added vnto them about three thousand soules.

44-2:42†††† And they continued stedfastly in the Apostles doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in praiers.

44-2:46†††† And they continuing daily with one accord in the Temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladnesse and singlenesse of heart,

44-2:47†††† Praising God, and hauing fauour with all the people. And the Lord added to the Church dayly such as should be saued.

44-4:3††††† And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold vnto the next day: for it was now euentide.

44-4:4††††† Howbeit, many of them which heard the word, beleeued, and the number of the men was about fiue thousand.

44-4:5††††† And it came to passe on the morow, that their rulers, and Elders, and Scribes,

44-4:6††††† And Annas the high Priest, and Caiphas, and Iohn, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kinred of the high Priest, were gathered together at Hierusalem.

44-4:7††††† And when they had set them in the middest, they asked, By what power, or by what name haue ye done this?

44-4:8††††† Then Peter filled with the holy Ghost, said vnto them, Ye rulers of the people, and Elders of Israel,

44-4:9††††† If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what meanes he is made whole,

44-4:17†††† But that it spread no farther among the people, let vs straitly threaten them, that they speake henceforth to no man in this Name.

44-4:18†††† And they called them, and commanded them, not to speake at all, nor teach in the Name of Iesus.

44-4:28†††† For to doe whatsoeuer thy hand and thy counsell determined before to be done.

44-4:29†††† And now Lord, behold their threatnings, and graunt vnto thy seruants, that with all boldnesse they may speake thy word,

44-4:30†††† By stretching foorth thine hand to heale: and that signes and wonders may be done by the Name of thy holy child Iesus.

44-4:32†††† And the multitude of them that beleeued, were of one heart, and of one soule: Neither said any of them, that ought of the things which he possessed, was his owne, but they had all things common.

44-4:35†††† And laide them downe at the Apostles feete: And distribution was made vnto euery man according as hee had neede.

44-5:4††††† Whiles it remained, was it not thine owne? and after it was sold, was it not in thine owne power? why hast thou conceiued this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied vnto men, but vnto God.

44-5:23†††† Saying, The prison truely found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doores, but when we had opened, we found no man within.

44-5:24†††† Now when the high Priest, and the captaine of the Temple, and the chiefe Priests heard these things, they doubted of them wherunto this would grow.

44-5:25†††† Then came one, and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison, are standing in the Temple, and teaching the people.

44-5:26†††† Then went the captaine with the officers, and brought them without violence: (For they feared the people, lest they should haue bene stoned.)

44-5:35†††† And said vnto them, Yee men of Israel, take heed to your selues, what ye intend to doe as touching these men.
