King James 1611
Acts 4  23-31                                                                                                                                           

23 

And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.

24 

And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

25 

Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

26 

The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

27 

For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

28 

For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

29 

And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

30 

By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

31 

And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

 

   
 

Matthew Henry Concise
Acts 4

                                                                                                                                     Verses 23-31

Christ's followers do best in company, provided it is their own company. It encourages God's servants, both in doing work, and suffering work, that they serve the God who made all things, and therefore has the disposal of all events; and the Scriptures must be fulfilled. Jesus was anointed to be a Saviour, therefore it was determined he should be a sacrifice, to make atonement for sin. But sin is not the less evil for God's bringing good out of it. In threatening times, our care should not be so much that troubles may be prevented, as that we may go on with cheerfulness and courage in our work and duty. They do not pray, Lord let us go away from our work, now that it is become dangerous, but, Lord, give us thy grace to go on stedfastly in our work, and not to fear the face of man. Those who desire Divine aid and encouragement, may depend upon having them, and they ought to go forth, and go on, in the strength of the Lord God. God gave a sign of acceptance of their prayers. The place was shaken, that their faith might be established and unshaken. God gave them greater degrees of his Spirit; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, more than ever; by which they were not only encouraged, but enabled to speak the word of God with boldness. When they find the Lord God help them by his Spirit, they know they shall not be confounded, ( Isaiah 1.7 ) .
