A Lame Man Walks1 [ One afternoon ] Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth [hour] . 2 And a man who was lame from birth was being carried [to] the temple gate called Beautiful, [where] he was put every day to beg from those entering the temple courts. 3 [When] he saw Peter and John about to enter the temple, he asked [them] for money. 4 Peter looked directly at him, as [did] John. “Look at us!” said [Peter] . 5 [So] [the man] gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, “Silver [or] gold I do not have, but what I have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!” ▼
▼ SBL, NE, and WH In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk7 Taking him by the right hand, [Peter] helped him up, and at once [the man’s] feet and ankles were strengthened. 8 He sprang to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple [courts] , walking and leaping and praising God. 9 [When] all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 they recognized him [as] the [man] who used to sit [begging] at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
Peter Speaks in Solomon's Colonnade11 [While] [the man] clung to Peter and John, all the people were astonished [and] ran to them in the [walkway] called Solomon’s Colonnade. 12 [When] Peter saw [this] , he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why are you surprised by this? Why do you stare at us as if by [our] own power or godliness [we] had made [this man] walk? 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant ▼
▼ Or child; also in verse 26Jesus. You handed [Him over] and rejected [Him] before Pilate, [even though] he had decided to release [Him] . 14 You rejected the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. 15 You killed the Author of life, [but] God raised [Him] from [the] dead, [and] we are witnesses of [the fact] . 16 By faith in [the] name of Jesus, this [man] whom you see and know has been made strong. [It is Jesus’] name and the faith that [comes] through Him [that] has given him this complete healing in your presence. 17 And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as [did] your leaders. 18 But in this way [God] has fulfilled what [He] foretold through all the prophets, [saying that] His Christ would suffer. 19 Repent, then, and turn back, so that your sins may be wiped away, 20 that times of refreshing may come from [the] presence of the Lord, and [that] He may send Jesus, [the] Christ, who has been appointed for you. 21 Heaven must take Him in until [the] time [comes] for [the] restoration of all things, which God announced long ago through His holy prophets. 22 For Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers. You must listen to Him in everything He tells you. 23 Everyone who does not listen [ to Him ] will be completely cut off from among the people.’ ▼
▼ Leviticus 23:29; Deuteronomy 18:15-2024 Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have proclaimed these days. 25 [And] you are sons of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers, [when] He said to Abraham, ‘ - Through your offspring all the families of the earth will be blessed.’ ▼
▼ Genesis 22:1826 [When] God raised up His servant, He sent Him first to you to bless you by turning each [of you] from your wicked ways.”
