  • 1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.
  • 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 for charitable gifts from those who entered the temple;
  • 3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for charitable gifts.
  • 4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.”
  • 5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.
  • 6 Then Peter said, “I do not have any silver and gold, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
  • 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
  • 8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them, walking, leaping, and praising God.
  • 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God.
  • 10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging for charitable gifts at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
  • 11 Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon’s, greatly amazed.
  • 12 So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: “You men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man walk?
  • 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Son Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go.
  • 14 But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted to you,
  • 15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God has raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.
  • 16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes by Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
  • 17 “Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers.
  • 18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ would suffer, He has likewise fulfilled.
  • 19 Therefore all of you repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
  • 20 and He will send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you beforehand,
  • 21 whom the heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
  • 22 Because, Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you will hear in all things, whatever He says to you.
  • 23 And it will be that every soul who shall not hear that Prophet will be utterly destroyed from among the people.’
  • 24 Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who followed later, as many as have spoken, have also foretold these days.
  • 25 You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, ‘And in your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed.’
  • 26 To you first, God, having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities.”
