Now Peter and John were going up together to the temple complex at the hour of prayer at three in the afternoon.
And a man who was lame from his mother's womb was carried there and placed every day at the temple gate called Beautiful, so he could beg from those entering the temple complex.
When he saw Peter and John about to enter the temple complex, he asked for help.
Peter, along with John, looked at him intently and said, "Look at us."
So he turned to them, expecting to get something from them.
But Peter said, "I have neither silver nor gold, but what I have, I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!"
Then, taking him by the right hand he raised him up, and at once his feet and ankles became strong.
So he jumped up, stood, and started to walk, and he entered the temple complex with them-walking, leaping, and praising God.
All the people saw him walking and praising God,
and they recognized that he was the one who used to sit and beg at the Beautiful Gate of the temple complex. So they were filled with awe and astonishment at what had happened to him.
While he was holding on to Peter and John, all the people, greatly amazed, ran toward them in what is called Solomon's Colonnade.
When Peter saw this, he addressed the people: "Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this? Or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him walk?
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you handed over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him.
But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked to have a murderer given to you.
