b. Witnessing of Jesus in His Work,
Death, Resurrection, and Ascension
22 1Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus the aNazarene, a 2man 3shown by God to you to be approved by works of power and wonders and bsigns, which God did through Him in your midst, even as you yourselves know --
23 This man, adelivered up by the 1bdetermined counsel and 2foreknowledge of God, you, through the hand of 3lawless men, cnailed to a 4cross and dkilled;
24 Whom 1God has araised up, having loosed the pangs of bdeath, since it was 2not possible for Him to be held by it.
25 For David says regarding Him, 1a"I saw the 2Lord continually before me, because 3He is on my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart was made glad and my 1tongue exulted; moreover, also my flesh will 2rest in hope,
27 Because You will not abandon my soul to 1aHades, nor will You permit Your 2bHoly One to see 3corruption.
28 You have made known to me the 1ways of life; You will make me full of gladness with Your 2presence.''
29 1Men, brothers, I can say to you plainly concerning the patriarch aDavid that he both deceased and was buried, and his btomb is among us until this day.
30 Therefore, being a prophet and knowing that God had asworn with an oath to him to seat One from the 1bfruit of his loins upon his 2throne,
31 He, seeing this beforehand, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that neither was He abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh see acorruption.
32 This Jesus 1God has araised up, of 2which we all are bwitnesses.
33 Therefore having been aexalted to the bright hand of God and having received the 1promise of the Holy cSpirit from the Father, He has dpoured out this which you both see and hear.
34 For David did 1not aascend into the heavens, but he himself says, b"The 2Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My 3right hand
35 Until I 1set Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet.''
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made Him both 1aLord and bChrist, this Jesus whom 2you have ccrucified.
