Acts 10:34-43 (long version)

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles

Peter proceeded to speak, saying:
"In truth, I see that God shows no partiality.
Rather, in every nation whoever fears him and acts uprightly
     is acceptable to him.
You know the word that he sent to the children of Israel
     as he proclaimed peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all,
     what has happened all over Judea,
     beginning in Galilee after the baptism
     that John preached,
     how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
     with the Holy Spirit and power.
He went about doing good
     and healing all those oppressed by the Devil,
     for God was with him.
We are witnesses of all that he did
     both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem.
They put him to death by hanging him on a tree.
This man God raised on the third day and granted that he be visible,
     not to all the people, but to us,
     the witnesses chosen by God in advance,
     who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.
He commissioned us to preach to the people
     and testify that he is the one appointed by God
     as judge of the living and the dead.
To him all the prophets bear witness,
     that everyone who believes in him
     will receive forgiveness of sins through his name."

The word of the Lord.
