The Stoning of Stephen

Acts 7

54 e When they heard these things they were 1 cut to the heart, and they gnashed at him with their teeth. 55 But he, f being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the g glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, 56 and said, "Look! h I see the heavens opened and the i Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!" 57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, stopped their ears, and ran at him with one accord; 58 and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And j the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59 And they stoned Stephen as he was calling on God and saying, "Lord Jesus, k receive my spirit." 60 Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, l "Lord, do not charge them with this sin." And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
