Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, 1 replied, 2 “Rulers of the people and elders, 3
and how our chief priests and rulers handed him over 1 to be condemned to death, and crucified 2 him.
But Jesus called them and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those in high positions use their authority over them.
Yet here he is, speaking publicly, 1 and they are saying nothing to him. 2 Do the rulers really know that this man 3 is the Christ? 4
The kings of the earth stood together, 1 and the rulers assembled together, against the Lord and against his 2 Christ.’ 3
The people also stood there watching, but the rulers ridiculed 1 him, saying, “He saved others. Let him save 2 himself if 3 he is the Christ 4 of God, his chosen one!”
For the people who live in Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize 1 him, 2 and they fulfilled the sayings 3 of the prophets that are read every Sabbath by condemning 4 him. 5
(for rulers cause no fear for good conduct but for bad). Do you desire not to fear authority? Do good and you will receive its commendation,
