Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 One day Peter and John were going up to the Temple for the hour of prayer--the ninth hour--and, just then, 1 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer--at three in the afternoon.
2 some men were carrying there one who had been lame from birth, whom they were wont to place every day close to the Beautiful Gate (as it was called) of the Temple, for him to beg from the people as they went in. 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 them for alms. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 Peter fixing his eyes on him, as John did also, said, "Look at us." 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 So he looked and waited, expecting to receive something from them. 5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 "I have no silver or gold," Peter said, "but what I have, I give 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 Then taking his hand Peter lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were strengthened. 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 upright and began to walk, and went into 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 All the people saw him walking and praising God; 9 When all the people saw him walking and praising God,
10 and recognizing him as the man who used to sit at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple asking for alms, they were filled with awe 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 While he still clung to Peter and John, the people, awe-struck, ran up crowding round them in what was known as Solomon's Portico. 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 Peter, seeing this, spoke to the people. "Israelites," he said, "why do you wonder at this man? Or why gaze at us, as though by any power or piety of our own we had enabled him to 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 forefathers, has conferred this honour on His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and disowned in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided 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 Yes, you disowned the holy and righteous One, and asked as a favour the release of a murderer. 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.
15 The Prince of Life you put to death; but God has raised Him from the dead, and we are witnesses as to that. 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.
16 It is His name-- faith in that name being the condition--which has strengthened this man whom you behold and know; and the faith which He has given has made this man sound and strong again, as you can all see. 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, brethren, I know that it was in ignorance that you did it, as was the case with your rulers also. 17 "Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.
18 But in this way God has fulfilled the declarations He made through all the Prophets, that His Christ would suffer. 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 reform your lives, so that the record of your sins may be cancelled, and that there may come seasons of revival from 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 the Christ appointed beforehand for you--even Jesus. 20 and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
21 Heaven must receive Him until those times of which God has spoken from the earliest ages through the lips of His holy Prophets--the times of the reconstitution of all things. 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 declared, "`The Lord your God will raise up a Prophet for you from among your brethren as He has raised me. In all that He says to you, you must listen to Him. 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 every one, without exception, who refuses to listen to 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 onwards--all who have spoken--have also announced the coming of this present time. 24 "Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have foretold these days.
25 "You are the heirs of the Prophets, and of the Covenant which God made with your forefathers when He said to Abraham, `And through your posterity all the families of the world shall 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 It is to you first that God, after raising His Servant from the grave, has sent Him to bless you, by causing every one of you to turn 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."
