Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost.

And so gifted for their offices and employments in the Church.

The heathens tell us that Hesiod, being filled with a sudden inspiration by the Muses, became of a sordid neatherd a most skilful poet.

And Cicero saith, no man ever grew famous sine aliquo afflatu divino, without some inbreathing from on high.
