New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now Peter and John went up together 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 lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple; 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 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, "Look at us." 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. 5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 Then Peter said, "Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise 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 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong.
8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple 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 And all the people saw him walking and praising God. 9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God,
10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement 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 Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon's, greatly amazed. 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 So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: "Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man 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, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. 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 One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.
15 and killed the Prince 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 His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness 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 Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 17 "Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.
18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. 18 But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Christ would suffer.
19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times 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 that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 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 restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. 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 For Moses truly said to the fathers, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever 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 shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be utterly destroyed from among the people.' 23 Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people.'
24 Yes, and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who follow, as many as have spoken, have also foretold these days. 24 "Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have foretold these days.

He said to Abraham, 'Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.'
26 To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities." 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."
