Acts 3:14 But ye denyed the holye and iuste: and desyred a mortherer to be geuen you Acts 3:15 and kylled the Lorde of lyfe, whom god hath raysed from death, of the whiche we are wytnesses.

Acts 3:25 Ye are the chyldren of the prophetes and of the couenaunt, which God hath made vnto our fathers saiynge to Abraham: Euen in thy sede shall all þe kynredes of the earthe be blessed. Acts 3:26 Fyrste vnto you hath God raysed vp his sonne Iesus, and hym he hath sent to blesse you, that euery one of you shuld turne from your wickednes.
