2 And a man, that was lame from the womb of his mother, was borne, and was laid each day at the gate of the temple [And some man that was lame from the womb of his mother, was borne, whom they put each day at the gate of the temple], that is said fair, to ask alms of men that 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 This, when he saw Peter and John beginning to enter into the temple, prayed that he should take alms. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 And Peter with John beheld on him, and said, Behold thou into us. [Forsooth Peter with John beholding him, said, Behold into us.] 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 And he beheld into them, and hoped, that he should take somewhat of them. [And he beheld into them, hoping him to take something of 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 [Forsooth Peter said, Silver and gold is not to me]; but that that I have, I give to thee.

7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up; and at once [and anon] his legs and his feet were strengthened together; 7 Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man's feet and ankles became strong.
8 and he leaped, and stood, and wandered. And he entered with them into the temple, and wandered, and leaped, and praised God. [and he leaping stood, and wandered.

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 knew him, that he it was that sat at alms at the fair gate of the temple. And they were filled with wondering, and astonishing, in that thing that befelled to him [And they were full-filled with wonder, and ecstasy, that is losing of mind and reason, and letting of tongue, in that thing that befell 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 But when they saw Peter and John, all the people ran to them at the porch that was called of Solomon, and wondered greatly. [Soothly when they saw Peter and John, all the people ran to them at the porch that is called of Solomon, wondering greatly.] 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 Peter saw, and answered to the people, Men of Israel, what wonder ye in this thing? either what behold ye us, as by our virtue either power we made this man for to walk [+Men of Israel, what wonder ye in this thing? or what behold ye us, as by our virtue, or power/either piety, we made this man 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 God of Abraham, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, [and] God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus, whom ye betrayed, and denied before the face of Pilate, when he deemed him to be delivered [+when he deemed to be dismissed, or let 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 ye denied the holy and the rightful, and asked a manslayer to be given to you. [Ye forsooth denied the holy and just, and asked a man-homicide, or manslayer, to be given to you.] 14 You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you.
15 And ye slew the maker of life, whom God raised from death [whom God raised from dead], of whom we be witnesses. 15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.
16 And in the faith of his name he hath confirmed this man, whom ye see and know; the name of him, and the faith that is by him, gave to this man full healing in the sight of all you [gave this full health in the sight of all 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.

20 and he shall send that Jesus Christ, that is now preached to you. 20 and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
