Bible Version

Nehemiah chapter 9

1
Then on the 24 day of that same month, the Israelites gathered together for a day of fasting. They wore sackcloth and put ashes on their heads to show they were sad and upset.
2
Those people who were true Israelites separated themselves from foreigners. The Israelites stood and confessed their sins and the sins of their ancestors.
3
They stood there for about three hours, and the people read the Book of the Law of the Lord their God. Then for three more hours they confessed their sins and bowed down to worship the Lord their God.
4
Then these Levites stood on the stairs: Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Kenani. They called out to the Lord their God with loud voices.
5
Then these Levites spoke again: Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabneiah, Sherebiah, Hodiah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah. They said, "Stand up and praise the Lord your God! "God has always lived and will live forever. People should praise your glorious name. May your name be lifted above all blessing and praise.
6
You are God. Lord, only you are God. You made the sky and the highest heavens, and everything in them. You made the earth, and everything on it. You made the seas, and everything in them. You give life to everything. All the heavenly angels bow down and worship you.
7
You are the Lord God. You chose Abram. You led him from Ur in Babylonia. You changed his name to Abraham.
8
You saw he was true and loyal to you, and you made an agreement with him. You promised to give him the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites, and Girgashites. But you promised to give that land to Abraham's descendants. And you kept your promise because you are good.
9
You saw our ancestors suffering in Egypt and heard them call for help by the Red Sea.
10
You showed the miracles to Pharaoh. You did amazing things to his officials and his people. You knew that the Egyptians thought they were better than our ancestors. But you proved how great you are, and they remember that even today.
11
You split the Red Sea in front of them, and they walked through on dry land. The Egyptian soldiers were chasing them, but you threw that enemy into the sea. And they sank like a rock into the sea.
12
With the tall cloud, you led them by day, and at night you used the column of fire. That is the way you lit their path and showed them where to go.
13
Then you came down to Mount Sinai. You spoke to them from heaven. You gave them good laws. You gave them true teachings. You gave them laws and commands that were very good.
14
You told them about your special day of rest�the Sabbath. Through your servant Moses, you gave them commands, laws, and teachings.
15
They were hungry, so you gave them food from heaven. They were thirsty, so you gave them water from a rock. You told them, 'Come, take this land.' You used your power, and took the land for them.
16
But our ancestors became proud and stubborn. They refused to obey your commands.
17
They refused to listen. They forgot the amazing things you did with them. They became stubborn. They decided to return to Egypt and become slaves again. "But you are a forgiving God! You are kind and full of mercy. You are patient and full of love. So you didn't leave them!
18
You didn't leave them even when they made golden calves and said, 'These are the gods that led us out of Egypt.'
19
You are very kind, so you didn't leave them in the desert. You didn't take the tall cloud away from them by day. You continued to lead them. You didn't take the column of fire away from them at night. You continued to light their path and show them which way to go.
20
You gave them your good Spirit to make them wise. You gave them manna for food. You gave them water for their thirst.
21
You took care of them for 40 years. They had all they needed in the desert. Their clothes didn't wear out, and their feet didn't swell and hurt.
22
You gave them kingdoms and nations, and you gave them faraway places where few people live. They got the land of King Sihon of Heshbon. They got the land of King Og of Bashan.
23
You made their descendants as many as the stars in the sky. You brought them to the land you promised to give their ancestors. They went in and took that land.
24
Their children took the land. They defeated the Canaanites living there. You let them defeat those people. You let them do whatever they wanted to those nations, people, and kings.
25
They defeated powerful cities. They took the fertile land. They got houses filled with good things. They got wells that were already dug. They got vineyards, olive trees, and plenty of fruit trees. They ate until they were full and fat. They enjoyed all the wonderful things you gave them.
26
And then they turned against you. They threw away your teachings. They killed your prophets. Those prophets warned the people. They tried to bring them back to you. But our ancestors said terrible things against you.
27
So you let their enemies have them. The enemy caused them much trouble. When trouble came, our ancestors called to you for help. And in heaven, you heard them. You are very kind, so you sent people to save them. And they rescued them from their enemies.
28
Then as soon as our ancestors were rested, they started doing terrible things again! So you let the enemy defeat them and punish them. They called to you for help, and in heaven you heard them and helped them. You are so kind. That happened so many times.
29
You warned them. You told them to come back, but they were too proud. They refused to listen to your commands. If people obey your laws, they will live. But our ancestors broke your laws. They were stubborn. They turned their backs on you. They refused to listen.
30
"You were very patient with our ancestors. You let them mistreat you for many years. You warned them with your Spirit. You sent the prophets to warn them. But our ancestors didn't listen. So you gave them to people in other countries.
31
"But you are so kind! You didn't completely destroy them. You didn't leave them. You are such a kind and merciful God!
32
Our God, you are the great God, the awesome, powerful soldier! You are kind and loyal. You keep your agreement. We have had many troubles, and our troubles are important to you. Bad things happened to all our people, and to our kings and leaders, and to our priests and prophets. Those terrible things have happened from the days of the king of Assyria until today!
33
But God, you were right about everything that happens to us. You were right, and we were wrong.
34
Our kings, leaders, priests, and fathers did not obey your law. They didn't listen to your commands. They ignored your warnings.
35
Our ancestors didn't serve you even when they were living in their own kingdom. They didn't stop doing evil. They enjoyed all the wonderful things you gave them. They enjoyed the rich land and had plenty of room, but they didn't stop their evil ways.
36
And now, we are slaves. We are slaves in this land, the land you gave our ancestors so they could enjoy its fruit and all the good things that grow here.
37
The harvest is big in this land. But we sinned, so that harvest goes to the kings you put over us. They control us and our cattle. They do anything they want. We are in a lot of trouble.
38
Because of all of these things, we are making an agreement that cannot be changed. We are putting this agreement in writing. Our leaders, Levites, and priests are signing their names to this agreement and sealing it with a seal. "

28
So all these people now make this special promise to God. And they all ask for bad things to happen if they don't keep their promise. All these people promise to follow the law of God. That law of God was given to us through Moses his servant. These people promise to carefully obey all the commands, rules, and teachings of the Lord our God. Now, these are the people who are making this promise: The rest of the people�the priests, Levites, gatekeepers, singers, Temple servants, and all the Israelites who separated themselves from the people living around them. They have separated themselves to obey God's law. Their wives, sons, and daughters who are able to listen and understand also did this. All these people joined their brothers and the important people to accept for themselves the promise to obey God's law. And they accepted the curse that asks for bad things to happen to them if they don't obey God's law.
29
30
"We promise not to let our daughters marry the people living around us. And we promise not to let our sons marry their daughters.
31
"We promise not to work on the Sabbath day. If the people living around us bring grain or other things to sell on the Sabbath, we will not buy them on that special day or on any other festival. Every seventh year, we will not plant or work the land. And every seventh year, we will cancel every debt that other people owe to us.
32
"We will accept the responsibility for obeying the commands to take care of God's Temple. We will give?shekel of silver each year to support the Temple service to honor our God.
33
This money will pay for the special bread that the priests put on the table in the Temple. It will pay for the daily grain offerings and burnt offerings. It will pay for the offerings on the Sabbaths, New Moon celebrations, and other special meeting days. It will pay for the holy offerings and for the sin offerings that make the Israelites pure. It will pay for any work needed on the Temple of our God.
34
"We, the priests, the Levites, and the people have thrown lots to decide when each of our families is to bring a gift of wood to the Temple of our God at certain times each year. The wood is to burn on the altar of the Lord our God. We must do that just as it is written in the law.
35
"We also accept the responsibility of bringing the first part of our harvest, whether from the grain in our fields or the fruit from our trees. We will bring them to the Lord's Temple each year.
36
"Just as it is also written in the law, this is what we will do: We will bring our firstborn sons and our firstborn cows, sheep, and goats. We will bring these to the Temple of our God, to the priests who are serving there.
37
"And we will also bring the first part of our harvest to priests to put in the storage rooms of the Lord's Temple. We will bring the first of our ground meal, the first of our grain offerings, the first fruit from our trees, and the first of our new wine and oil. And we will bring a tenth of our crops to the Levites, because they are the ones who collect these things in all the towns where we work.
38
A priest from the family of Aaron must be with the Levites when they receive the crops. Then the Levites must bring the crops to the Temple of our God and put them in the storerooms of the Temple treasury.
39
The Israelites and the Levites must bring their gifts to the storerooms. They are to bring their gifts of grain, new wine, and oil. All the things for the Temple are kept in the storerooms, and that is where the priests who are on duty stay. The singers and gatekeepers also stay there. "We all promise that we will take care of the Temple of our God."

Acts chapter 2

1
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
2
Suddenly a noise came from heaven. It sounded like a strong wind blowing. This noise filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3
They saw something that looked like flames of fire. The flames were separated and stood over each person there.
4
They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak different languages. The Holy Spirit was giving them the power to do this.
5
There were some godly Jewish men in Jerusalem at this time. They were from every country in the world.
6
A large group of these men came together because they heard the noise. They were surprised because, as the apostles were speaking, every person heard in their own language.
7
They were all amazed at this. They did not understand how the apostles could do this. They said, "Look! These men we hear speaking are all from Galilee.
8
But we hear them in our own languages. How is this possible? We are from all these different places:
9
Parthia, Media, Elam, Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia,
10
Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the areas of Libya near the city of Cyrene, Rome,
11
Crete, and Arabia. Some of us were born Jews, and others have changed their religion to worship God like Jews. We are from these different countries, but we can hear these men in our own languages! We can all understand the great things they are saying about God."
12
The people were all amazed and confused. They asked each other, "What is happening?"
13
But others were laughing at the apostles, saying they were drunk from too much wine.
14
Then Peter stood up with the other eleven apostles. He spoke loudly so that all the people could hear. He said, "My Jewish brothers and all of you who live in Jerusalem, listen to me. I will tell you something you need to know. Listen carefully.
15
These men are not drunk as you think; it's only nine o'clock in the morning.
16
But Joel the prophet wrote about what you see happening here today. This is what he wrote:
17
'God says, In the last days I will pour out my Spirit on all kinds of people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy,* your young men will see visions, and your old men will have dreams.
18
In those days I will pour out my Spirit on my servants, men and women, and they will prophesy.
19
I will work wonders in the sky above. I will cause miraculous signs on the earth below. There will be blood, fire, and thick smoke.
20
The sun will be changed into darkness, and the moon will be as red as blood. Then the great and awesome day of the Lord will come.
21
And everyone who trusts in the Lord will be saved.'
22
"My fellow Israelites, listen to these words: Jesus from Nazareth was a very special man. God clearly showed this to you. He proved it by the miracles, wonders, and miraculous signs he did through Jesus. You all saw these things, so you know this is true.
23
Jesus was handed over to you, and you killed him. With the help of evil men, you nailed him to a cross. But God knew all this would happen. It was his plan�a plan he made long ago.
24
Jesus suffered the pain of death, but God made him free. He raised him from death. There was no way for death to hold him.
25
David said this about him: 'I saw the Lord before me always; he is at my right side to keep me safe.
26
So my heart is happy, and the words I speak are words of joy. Yes, even my body will live with hope,
27
because you will not leave me in the place of death. You will not let the body of your Holy One rot in the grave.
28
You taught me how to live. You will come close to me and give me great joy.'
29
"My brothers, I can tell you for sure about David, our great ancestor. He died, was buried, and his tomb is still here with us today.
30
He was a prophet and knew something that God had said. God had promised David that someone from his own family would sit on David's throne as king.
31
David knew this before it happened. That is why he said this about that future king: 'He was not left in the place of death. His body did not rot in the grave.' David was talking about the Christ rising from death.
32
So Jesus is the one God raised from death. We are all witnesses of this. We saw him.
33
Jesus was lifted up to heaven. Now he is with God, at God's right side. The Father has given the Holy Spirit to him, as he promised. So Jesus has now poured out that Spirit. This is what you see and hear.
34
David was not the one who was lifted up to heaven. David himself said, 'The Lord God said to my Lord: Sit at my right side,
35
until I put your enemies under your power. '
36
"So, all the people of Israel should know this for certain: God has made Jesus to be Lord and Christ. He is the man you nailed to the cross!"
37
When the people heard this, they felt very, very sorry. They asked Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?"
38
Peter said to them, "Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ. Then God will forgive your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39
This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for the people who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself."
40
Peter warned them with many other words; he begged them, "Save yourselves from the evil of the people who live now!"
41
Then those who accepted what Peter said were baptized. On that day about 3000 people were added to the group of believers.
42
The believers spent their time listening to the teaching of the apostles. They shared everything with each other. They ate together and prayed together.
43
Many wonders and miraculous signs were happening through the apostles, and everyone felt great respect for God.
44
All the believers stayed together and shared everything.
45
They sold their land and the things they owned. Then they divided the money and gave it to those who needed it.
46
The believers shared a common purpose, and every day they spent much of their time together in the Temple area. They also ate together in their homes. They were happy to share their food and ate with joyful hearts.
47
The believers praised God and were respected by all the people. More and more people were being saved every day, and the Lord was adding them to their group.
