World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Peter and John were going up into 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 A certain man who was lame from his mother's womb was being carried, whom they laid daily at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask gifts for the needy of those who entered into 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 Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive gifts for the needy. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 Peter, fastening his eyes on him, with John, said, "Look at us." 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 He listened to 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 have I none, but what I have, that I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise 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 He took him by the right hand, and raised him up. Immediately his feet and his 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 Leaping up, he stood, and began to walk. He entered with them into the temple, 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 They recognized him, that it was he who sat begging for gifts for the needy at the Beautiful Gate of the temple. They were filled with wonder and amazement at that which 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 As the lame man who was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering. 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 it, he answered to the people, "You men of Israel, why do you marvel at this man? Why do you fasten your eyes on 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 delivered up, and denied before the face of Pilate, when he had determined 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 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, whereof we are witnesses. 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 has his name made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which is 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 "Now, brothers, I know that you did this in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 17 "Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.
18 But the things which God announced by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he 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 turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, that so there may come times of refreshing 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 Christ Jesus, who was ordained for you before, 20 and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
21 whom the heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, whereof God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets that have been from ancient 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 For Moses indeed said to the fathers, 'The Lord God will raise up a prophet to you from among your brothers, like me. You will listen to him 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 It will be, that every soul that will not listen to that prophet will 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 followed after, as many as have spoken, they also told of 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 God, having raised up his servant, Jesus, sent him to you first, to bless you, in turning away everyone of you 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."
