Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Peter and John were going up at the same time to the temple, at the hour of the 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, being lame from the womb of his mother, was being carried, whom they were laying every day at the gate of the temple, called Beautiful, to ask a kindness from those entering 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 who, having seen Peter and John about to go into the temple, was begging to receive a kindness. 3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
4 And Peter, having looked stedfastly toward him with John, said, `Look toward us;' 4 Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 and he was giving heed to them, looking to receive something from them; 5 So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
6 and Peter said, `Silver and gold I have none, but what I have, that I give to thee; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and be walking.' 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 having seized him by the right hand, he raised [him] up, and presently 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 and springing up, he stood, and was walking, and did enter with them into the temple, walking and springing, 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 they were knowing him also that this it was who for a kindness was sitting at the Beautiful gate of the temple, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what hath 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 at the lame man who was healed holding Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch 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 and Peter having seen, answered unto the people, `Men, Israelites! why wonder ye at this? or on us why look ye so earnestly, as if by our own power or piety we have made 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, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, did glorify His child Jesus, whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, he having given judgment 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 and ye the Holy and Righteous One did deny, and desired a man -- 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 the Prince of the life ye did kill, whom God did raise out of 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 faith of his name, this one whom ye see and have known, his name made strong, even the faith that [is] through him did give to him this perfect soundness before 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, brethren, I have known that through ignorance ye did [it], as also your rulers; 17 "Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders.
18 and God, what things before He had declared through the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ should suffer, He did thus fulfil; 18 But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Christ would suffer.
19 reform ye, therefore, and turn back, for your sins being blotted out, 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 He may send Jesus Christ who before hath been preached to you, 20 and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you--even Jesus.
21 whom it behoveth heaven, indeed, to receive till times of a restitution of all things, of which God spake through the mouth of all His holy prophets from the age. 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, unto the fathers said -- A prophet to you shall the Lord your God raise up out of your brethren, like to me; him shall ye hear in all things, as many as he may speak unto 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, every soul that may not hear that prophet shall be utterly destroyed out of the people; 23 Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people.'
24 and also all the prophets from Samuel and those following in order, as many as spake, did also foretell of these days. 24 "Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have foretold these days.
25 `Ye are sons of the prophets, and of the covenant that God made unto our fathers, saying unto Abraham: And in thy seed shall be blessed all the families of the earth; 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 to you first, God, having raised up His child Jesus, did send him, blessing you, in the turning away of each one from your evil ways.' 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."
