(2) Exhorting People to Repent and Turn
That They May Partake of the Ascended and Coming Christ
19 aRepent therefore and turn, that your sins may be bwiped away,
20 So that seasons of 1refreshing may come from the presence of the 2Lord and that He may send the Christ, who has been previously aappointed for you, Jesus,
21 Whom heaven must indeed receive until the 1times of the arestoration of all things, of which God spoke through the mouth of His holy bprophets 2from of old.
22 Moses said, a"A 1Prophet will the Lord your God braise up unto you from your brothers, like me; Him shall you chear in whatever things He speaks to you.
23 aAnd it shall be that every soul who does not hear that Prophet shall be utterly bdestroyed from among the people.''
24 And also all the prophets, from aSamuel and those in succession after him, as many as spoke, also announced these days.
25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God covenanted with your fathers, saying to Abraham, "And ain your 1seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.''
26 To you afirst, God, having braised up His cServant, has sent 1Him to bless you in dturning each of you away from your wicked deeds.
