Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.

     The Lord has made salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.

     He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

      Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;

     make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harpand the sound of singing,

     with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn– shout for joy before the Lord, the King.

     Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

     Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;

     let them sing before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

Psalm 98


     While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had come were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.

     Then Peter said, “Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.” So he ordered that they be baptized in the neame of Jesus Christ. Then they  asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.
