Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now Peter and John were going up together to the temple complex at the hour of prayer at three in the afternoon. 1 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer--at three in the afternoon.
2 And a man who was lame from his mother's womb was carried there and placed every day at the temple gate called Beautiful, so he could beg from those entering the temple complex. 2 Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.
3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter the temple complex, he asked for help. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 Peter, along with John, looked at him intently and said, "Look at us." 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 So he turned to them, expecting to get something from them. 5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 But Peter said, "I have neither silver nor gold, but what I have, I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!" 6 Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."
7 Then, taking him by the right hand he raised him up, and at once his feet and ankles became strong. 7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong.
8 So he jumped up, stood, and started to walk, and he entered the temple complex with them-walking, leaping, and praising God. 8 He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.
9 All the people saw him walking and praising God, 9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God,
10 and they recognized that he was the one who used to sit and beg at the Beautiful Gate of the temple complex. So they were filled with awe and astonishment at what had happened to him. 10 they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
11 While he was holding on to Peter and John, all the people, greatly amazed, ran toward them in what is called Solomon's Colonnade. 11 While the beggar held on to Peter and John, all the people were astonished and came running to them in the place called Solomon's Colonnade.
12 When Peter saw this, he addressed the people: "Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this? Or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him walk? 12 When Peter saw this, he said to them: "Men of Israel, why does this surprise you? 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 Jesus, whom you handed over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him. 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go.
14 But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked to have a murderer given to you. 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.
15 And you killed the source of life, whom God raised from the dead; we are witnesses of this. 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.
16 By faith in His name, His name has made this man strong, whom you see and know. So the faith that comes through Him has given him this perfect health in front of all of you. 16 By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.
17 "And now, brothers, I know that you did it in ignorance, just as your leaders also did. 17 "Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.
18 But what God predicted through the mouth of all the prophets-that His Messiah would suffer-He has fulfilled in this way. 18 But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Christ would suffer.
19 Therefore repent and turn back, that your sins may be wiped out so that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
20 and He may send Jesus, who has been appointed Messiah for you. 20 and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
21 Heaven must welcome Him until the times of the restoration of all things, which God spoke about by the mouth of His holy prophets from the beginning. 21 He must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets.
22 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 will say to you. 22 For Moses said, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you.
23 And it will be that everyone who will not listen to that Prophet will be completely cut off from the people. 23 Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people.'
24 "In addition, all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those after him, have also announced these days. 24 "Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have foretold these days.
25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your forefathers, saying to Abraham, And in your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed. 25 And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, 'Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.'
26 God raised up His Servant and sent Him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your evil ways." 26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways."
