2:1  Dum complerentur dies Pentecostes, erant omnes in eodem

2:2  et factus est repente de caelo sonus tanquam spiritus vehementis, et replevit totam domum, ubi erant sedentes.

2:3  Et apparuerunt illis dispertitae linguae ignis seditque super singulos eorum:

2:4  et repleti sunt omnes Spiritu Sancto et caeperunt loqui variis linguis magnalia Dei.

2:1  And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2:2  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

2:3  And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

2:4  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, about the great works of God.
