Bible Quote 2:1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
2:2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
2:3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
2:4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
2:5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven.

2:6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
2:7 Utterly amazed, they asked: "Are not all these men who are speaking Galileans?
2:8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language?
2:9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,
2:10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome

2:11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs--we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!"
2:12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, "What does this mean?"
