the Lord, who bore witness to 5 the word of his grace, 6 granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
But the people of the city
were divided; 8 some sided with the Jews and some with the apostles.
When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers,
to mistreat them and 10 to stone them,

He listened to Paul speaking. And Paul, looking intently at him and
seeing that he had faith to be made well,
said in a loud voice, "Stand upright on your feet." And he
sprang up and began walking.
