[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Act 2:1 When the day of Pentecost came, all the believers were gathered together in one place.
Act 2:2 Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3 Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there.
Act 2:4 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.
Act 2:5 There were Jews living in Jerusalem, religious people who had come from every country in the world.
Act 2:6 When they heard this noise, a large crowd gathered. They were all excited, because all of them heard the believers talking in their own languages.
Act 2:7 In amazement and wonder they exclaimed, "These people who are talking like this are Galileans!
Act 2:8 How is it, then, that all of us hear them speaking in our own native languages?
Act 2:9 We are from Parthia, Media, and Elam; from Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia; from Pontus and Asia,
Act 2:10 from Phrygia and Pamphylia, from Egypt and the regions of Libya near Cyrene. Some of us are from Rome,
Act 2:11 both Jews and Gentiles converted to Judaism, and some of us are from Crete and Arabia---yet all of us hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things that God has done!"
Act 2:12 Amazed and confused, they kept asking each other, "What does this mean?"
Act 2:13 But others made fun of the believers, saying, "These people are drunk!"
Act 2:14 Then Peter stood up with the other eleven apostles and in a loud voice began to speak to the crowd: "Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, listen to me and let me tell you what this means.
