Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth [hour]. 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 certain man was being carried who was lame {from birth}. {He} was placed every day at the gate of the temple called "Beautiful," [so that he] could ask for charitable gifts from those who were going into the temple [courts]. 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 go into the temple [courts], he began asking to receive alms. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 And Peter looked intently at him, together with John, [and] said, "Look at us!" 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 So he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 But Peter said, "Silver and gold {I do not possess}, but what I have, this I give to you--in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, 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 And taking hold of him by the right hand, he raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong.
8 And leaping up, he stood and began walking around and entered into the temple [courts] with them, walking and 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 And all the people saw him walking and praising God, 9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God,
10 And they recognized him, that this one was the one who used to sit [asking] for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and 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 And [while] he was holding fast to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the portico called Solomon's, utterly astonished. 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 And [when he] saw [it], Peter replied to the people, "Men [and] Israelites, why are you astonished at this? Or why are you staring at us, as [if] by our own power or godliness we have 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 and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you handed over and denied in the presence of Pilate, [after] 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 demanded [that] a man--a murderer--be granted to you. 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.
15 And you killed the originator of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses! 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.
16 And on the basis of faith in his name, his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know, and the faith [that is] through him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all. 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 acted in ignorance, just as your rulers did also. 17 "Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.
18 But [the things] which God foretold through the mouth of all the prophets, [that] his Christ 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, so that your sins may be blotted out, 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 so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and he may send the Christ appointed for you--Jesus, 20 and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
21 whom heaven must receive until the times of the restoration of all [things], about which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from earliest times. 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 God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You will listen to him in everything that he says 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] every soul who does not listen to that prophet will be destroyed utterly from the people.' 23 Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people.'

26 God, [after he] had raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you by turning each [of you] back from your wickedness!" 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."
