Acts 4:8-12

8 Then Peter, 1filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders,
9 if we are being examined today 2concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed,
10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that 3by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, 4whom God raised from the dead--by him this man is standing before you well.
11 5This Jesus[a] is the stone that was 6rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.[b]
12 And there is 7salvation 8in no one else, for 9there is no other 10name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."

Acts 4:8-12 In-Context

6 with Annas the high priest and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family.
7 And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, "By what power or by what name did you do this?"
8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, "Rulers of the people and elders,
9 if we are being examined today concerning a good deed done to a crippled man, by what means this man has been healed,
10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead--by him this man is standing before you well.
11 This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.
12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.
14 But seeing the man who was healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition.
