View In My Bible
12 But when Peter saw this, he replied to the people, "Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this, or why do you gaze at us, as if by our own power or piety we had made him walk? 13 "1The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, 2the God of our fathers, has glorified His a3servant Jesus, the one whom 4you delivered and disowned in the presence of 5Pilate, when he had 6decided to release Him. 14 "But you disowned 7the Holy and Righteous One and 8asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 15 but put to death the b9Prince of life, the one whom 10God raised from the dead, a fact to which we are 11witnesses. 16 "And on the basis of faith 12in His name, it is cthe name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all. 17 "And now, brethren, I know that you acted 13in ignorance, just as your 14rulers did also. 18 "But the things which 15God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, 16that His dChrist would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 19 "Therefore 17repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that 18times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; 20 and that He may send Jesus, the eChrist appointed for you, 21 19whom heaven must receive until the fperiod of 20restoration of all things about which 21God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. 22 "Moses said, '22THE LORD GOD WILL RAISE UP FOR YOU A PROPHET gLIKE ME FROM YOUR BRETHREN; TO HIM YOU SHALL GIVE HEED to everything He says to you. 23 '23And it will be that every 24soul that does not heed that prophet 25shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.' 24 "And likewise, 26all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and his successors onward, also announced these days. 25 "It is you who are 27the sons of the prophets and of the 28covenant which God hmade with your fathers, saying to Abraham, '29AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED.' 26 "For you 30first, God 31raised up His iServant and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways."
