34 For David himself never ascended into heaven, yet he said, `The LORD said to my Lord, Sit in honor at my right hand1
35 until I humble your enemies, making them a footstool under your feet.'*2
36 So let it be clearly known by everyone in Israel that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified to be both Lord and Messiah!"
37 Peter's words convicted them deeply, and they said to him and to the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?"
38 Peter replied, "Each of you must turn from your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39 This promise is to you and to your children, and even to the Gentiles*--all who have been called by the Lord our God."3
40 Then Peter continued preaching for a long time, strongly urging all his listeners, "Save yourselves from this generation that has gone astray!"
41 Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church--about three thousand in all.
42 They joined with the other believers and devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, sharing in the Lord's Supper and in prayer.
43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.
44 And all the believers met together constantly and shared everything they had.
45 They sold their possessions and shared the proceeds with those in need.
46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity--
47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved.
