Acts 3 ©

1 Peter, going up to the temple with John, cures one who was lame from his mother’s womb. 9 Whereat the people, being amazed, run together. 12 Whom Peter informs that this work was not done by his own power but by Jesus Christ. 14 Whom they had put to death, and Who was risen from the dead. 17 Comforts them, and exhorts them to repentance. 20 That by Him, Who is now in heaven, and from thence shall come again. 22 According to the testimony of Moses. 24 And all the prophets. 25 They might receive the blessing of Abraham.


NOW Peter and John went up together into the temple 1at the hour of prayer, being 2the ninth hour.


Anda a certain 3man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called 4Beautiful, tob ask 5alms of them that entered into the temple;


Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.


And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.


And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive 6something of them.


Then Peter said, Silver and goldc have I none; but such as I have give I thee: 7Ind the name of Jesus Christ of 8Nazareth rise up and walk.


And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his 9feet and ankle bones received strength.


And he 10leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.


And all the people saw him walking and praising God:


And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazemente at that which had happened unto him.


And as the lame man which was healed 11held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called 12Solomon's, greatly wondering.


¶And when Peter saw it, he 13answered 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 14holiness we had made this man to walk?


15The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath 16glorified his 17Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and 18denied him inf the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.


But ye denied 19the Holy One and the Just, and desired 20a murderer to be granted unto you;


And killed 21the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; 22whereofg we are witnesses.


And 23his name through faith 24in his name hath made this man 25strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is 26by him hath given him this 27perfect soundness in the presence of you all.


And now, brethren, I woth that through 28ignorance ye did it, as did also your 29rulers.


But those things, which God before had shewed byi the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.


¶Repentj ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times 30of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;


And he shall 31send Jesus Christ, which 32before was preached unto you:


Whom the heaven must 33receive 34until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since 35the world began.


For Moses truly said unto the fathers, 36A prophet shall thek Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, 37like unto me; him shall ye hear 38in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.


And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be 39destroyed from among the people.


Yea, and all the prophets 40from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.


Ye are the 41children of the prophets, and of the 42covenant which God made 43with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, Andl in thy seed shall all 44the kindreds of the earth be blessed.


45Unto you first God, having 46raised up his 47Son Jesus, sent him to 48bless you, 49in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
