1 And Peter and John went up into the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth. 2 And a certain man, being lame from his mother's womb was habitually carried, whom they placed daily at the gate of the temple called Beautiful, to ask alms of those entering into the temple; 3 who seeing Peter and John about to come into the temple, asked to receive alms. 4 And Peter along with John, fixing his attention on him, said, Look unto us. 5 And he gave attention to them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 Peter said, Silver and gold do not belong to me; but I give thee that which I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, walk about. 7 And taking him by the right hand he raised him up; and immediately the bottoms of his feet and his ankle-bones were strengthened. 8 And leaping out, he stood, and continued to walk around, and came into the temple with them, walking around and leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking round and praising God. 10 And they recognized him, that he was the one sitting for alms at Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with astonishment and delight at that which had happened to him.
11 And he holding on to Peter and John; all the people ran together to them in the porch called Solomon's, exceedingly astonished. 12 And Peter seeing them, responded to the people; Israelitish men, why are you astonished at this, or why do you look upon us as having by our own power or holiness, made this man to walk about? 13 The God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Child, Jesus, who you indeed delivered up and denied before the face of Pilate having decided to release Him. 14 And you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and ask that a man who was a murderer should be delivered unto you, 15 and you slew the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, whose witnesses we are. 16 And through the faith of his name, his name hath made sound this one who you see and know, and through him faith has given unto him this soundness, in the presence of you all.
17 And now, brethren, I know that you did it through ignorance, as did your rulers also; 18 and those things which God proclaimed through the mouth of all the prophets that his Christ should suffer, he hath thus fulfilled. 19 Repent, therefore, and turn, that your sins may be blotted out, in order that seasons of soul-renewing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and he may send forth Jesus, who has been preached unto you as the Christ, 21 whom it behooves heaven indeed to receive until the times of the restitution of all things which God spoke through the mouth of all his prophets from the beginning. 22 Moses indeed said; The Lord our God will raise up to you from your brethren a prophet like unto me; Him you will hear concerning all things so many as he may speak to you. 23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul whosoever will not hear that prophet, shall be cut off from the people.
24 And indeed all the prophets from Samuel and consecutively, so many as spoke, also proclaimed these days. 25 Ye are the sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, In thy seed shall the families of the earth be truly blessed. 26 To you God, having first raised up his Son, sent him blessing you, in turning each one from your sins.
