36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that j God has made him k both Lord and Christ, this Jesus l whom you crucified."

37 Now when m they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brothers, n what shall we do?" 38 And Peter said to them, o "Repent and p be baptized every one of you q in the name of Jesus Christ r for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive s the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For t the promise is for you and u for your children and for all v who are far off, everyone w whom the Lord our God calls to himself." 40 And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, x "Save yourselves from this y crooked generation." 41 So those who received his word were baptized, and z there were added that day about three thousand souls.
