When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together. And
suddenly there came from the sky a noise
like a strong driving wind, and it filled the
entire house in which they were. Then
there appeared to them tongues as of
fire, which parted and came to rest on
each one of them. And they were all filled
with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in
different tongues, as the Spirit enabled
them to proclaim.
Acts 2: 1 - 11
