Acts 3: 1 – 27 (NET)


Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time1  for prayer,2  at three o’clock in the afternoon.3  2 And a man lame4  from birth5  was being carried up, who was placed at the temple gate called “the Beautiful Gate” every day6  so he could beg for money7  from those going into the temple courts.8  3 When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple courts,9  he asked them for money.10  4 Peter looked directly11  at him (as did John) and said, “Look at us! 5 So the lame man12  paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold,13  but what I do have I give you. In the name14  of Jesus Christ15  the Nazarene, stand up and16  walk! 7 Then17  Peter18  took hold19  of him by the right hand and raised him up, and at once the man’s20  feet and ankles were made strong.21  8 He22  jumped up,23  stood and began walking around, and he entered the temple courts24  with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9 All25  the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and they recognized him as the man who used to sit and ask for donations26  at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and they were filled with astonishment and amazement27  at what had happened to him.
