2 And (C)a man who had been lame from his mother’s womb was being carried along, whom they (D)used to set down every day at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, (E)in order to beg (b)alms of those who were entering the temple.
2 And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

3 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.
3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter the temple complex, he asked for help.
3 When he saw that Peter and John were about to go into the Temple, he asked them to give him something.
3 So when he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he began asking [them] for coins.
4 And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
4 Peter, along with John, looked at him intently and said, “Look at us.”
4 Peter, along with John, looked him straight in the eye and said, "Look at us!"
4 But Peter, along with John, stared at him intently and said, “Look at us!”
5 And he began to give them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
5 And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.
5 So the man watched them closely, expecting to get something from them.

6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
6 However, Peter said, "I don't have any silver or gold, but I'll give you what I do have. In the name of Jesus the Messiah from Nazareth, walk!"
6 But Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have; but what I do have I give to you: In the name (authority, power) of Jesus Christ the Nazarene—[begin now to] walk and go on walking!”
7 And seizing him by the right hand, he raised him up; and immediately his feet and his ankles were strengthened.
7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ancle bones received strength.
7 Then, taking him by the right hand he raised him up, and at once his feet and ankles became strong.
7 Then Peter took hold of his right hand and began to help him up. Immediately his feet and ankles became strong,
7 Then he seized the man’s right hand with a firm grip and raised him up. And at once his feet and ankles became strong and steady,
8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
8 and he sprang to his feet, stood up, and began to walk. Then he went with them into the Temple, walking, jumping, and praising God.
8 and with a leap he stood up and began to walk; and he went into the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.

11 Now while he was still holding on to Peter and John, all the people, utterly amazed, ran together and crowded around them at the covered porch called Solomon’s portico.
12 But when Peter saw this, he replied to the people, “Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this, or why do you gaze at us, as if by our own power or piety we had made him walk?
12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
12 When Peter saw this, he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this? Or why do you stare at us, as though we had made him walk by our own power or godliness?

19 Therefore, repent and turn to him to have your sins blotted out,
19 So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];
