Acts 13:32-34 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

32 And we declare unto you, that touching the promise made unto the fathers,

33 God hath fulfilled it unto us their children, in that he [a]raised up Jesus, [b]even as it is written in the second Psalm, Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee.

34 Now as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, no more to return to corruption, he hath said thus, I will give you the holy things of David, [c]which are faithful.


  1. Acts 13:33 For then he appeared plainly and manifestly as that only Son of God, when as he left off his weakness, and came out of the grave, having conquered death.
  2. Acts 13:33 If Christ had tarried in death, he had not been the true Son of God, neither had the covenant, which was made with David, been sure.
  3. Acts 13:34 The Greeks call those holy things, which the Hebrews call gracious bounties: and they are called David’s bounties in the passive signification, because God bestowed them upon David: Moreover, they are termed faithful, after the manner of speech which the Hebrews use, who terms those things faithful, which are steady and sure such as never alter nor change.

32 “We tell you the good news: What God promised our ancestors 33 he has fulfilled for us, their children, by raising up Jesus. As it is written in the second Psalm:

“‘You are my son;
    today I have become your father.’[a]

34 God raised him from the dead so that he will never be subject to decay. As God has said,

“‘I will give you the holy and sure blessings promised to David.’[b]
