2:1 Καὶ ἐν τῳ̂ συμπληρου̂σθαι τὴν ἡμέραν τη̂ς πεντηκοστη̂ς ʼη̂σαν πάντες ὁμου̂ ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό. 2:2 καὶ ἐγένετο ʼάφνω ἐκ του̂ οὐρανου̂ ʼη̂χος ʽώσπερ φερομένης πνοη̂ς βιαίας καὶ ἐπλήρωσεν ʽόλον τὸν οʼι̂κον οʽυ̂ ʼη̂σαν καθήμενοι. 2:3 καὶ ʼώφθησαν αὐτοι̂ς διαμεριζόμεναι γλω̂σσαι ὡσεὶ πυρός, καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐφ' ʽένα ʽέκαστον αὐτω̂ν. 2:4 καὶ ἐπλήσθησαν πάντες πνεύματος ἁγίου, καὶ ʼήρξαντο λαλει̂ν ἑτέραις γλώσσαις καθὼς τὸ πνευ̂μα ἐδίδου ἀποφθέγγεσθαι αὐτοι̂ς.

2:5 ʼΗ̂σαν δὲ εἰς ʼΙερουσαλὴμ κατοικούντες ʼΙουδαι̂οι ʼάνδρες εὐλαβει̂ς ἀπὸ παντὸς ʼέθνους τω̂ν ὑπὸ τὸν οὐρανόν. 2:6 γενομένης δὲ τη̂ς φωνη̂ς ταύτης συνη̂λθεν τὸ πλη̂θος καὶ συνεχύθη, ʽότι ʼήκουον εʽι̂ς ʽέκαστος τῃ̂ ἰδίᾳ διαλέκτῳ λαλούντων αὐτω̂ν. 2:7 ἐξίσταντο δὲ καὶ ἐθαύμαζον λέγοντες, οὐχὶ ἰδοὺ πάντες οʽυ̂τοί εἰσιν οἱ λαλου̂ντες Γαλιλαι̂οι; 2:8 Καὶ πω̂ς ἡμει̂ς ἀκούομεν ʽέκαστος τῃ̂ ἰδίᾳ διαλέκτῳ ἡμω̂ν ἐν ʽῃ̂ ἐγεννήθημεν; 2:9 Πάρθοι καὶ Μη̂δοι καὶ ʼΕλαμι̂ται, καὶ οἱ καταοικου̂ντες τήν Μεσοποταμίαν, ʼΙουδαίαν τε καὶ Καππαδοκίαν, Πόντον καὶ τὴν ʼΑσίαν, 2:10 Φρυγίαν τε καὶ Παμφυλίαν, Αʼίγυπτον καὶ τὰ μέρη τη̂ς Λιβύης τη̂ς κατὰ Κυρήνην, καὶ οἱ ἐπιδημου̂ντες ʽΡωμαι̂οι, ʼΙουδαι̂οί τε καὶ προσήλυτοι, 2:11 Κρη̂τες καὶ ʼΆραβες, ἀκούομεν λαλούντων αὐτω̂ν ται̂ς ἡμετέραις γλώσσαις τὰ μεγαλει̂α του̂ θεου̂. 2:12 ἐξίσταντο δὲ πάντες καὶ διηπορου̂ντο, ʼάλλος πρὸς ʼάλλον λέγοντες, τί θέλει του̂το εʼι̂ναι;

2:13 ʽέτεροι δὲ διαχλευάζοντες ʼέλεγον ʽότι γλεύκους μεμεστωμένοι εἰσίν.

Mark 3:35 (memory verse) - ʽῸς ʼάν ποιήσῃ τὸ θέλημα του̂ θεου̂, οʽυ̂τος ἀδελφός μου καὶ ἀδελφὴ καὶ μη̂τηρ ἐστίν.

Translation

From the King James version:
2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
Mark 3:35 (memory verse) --
For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
