Acts 3:1-10

Peter Heals the Disabled Beggar

1 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple. It was three o'clock in the afternoon. It was the time for prayer.
2 A man unable to walk was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful. He had been that way since he was born. Every day someone put him near the gate. There he would beg from people going into the temple courtyards.
3 He saw that Peter and John were about to enter. So he asked them for money.
4 Peter looked straight at him, and so did John. Then Peter said, "Look at us!"
5 So the man watched them closely. He expected to get something from them.
6 Peter said, "I don't have any silver or gold. But I'll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk."
7 Then Peter took him by the right hand and helped him up. At once the man's feet and ankles became strong.
8 He jumped to his feet and began to walk. He went with Peter and John into the temple courtyards. He walked and jumped and praised God.
9 All the people saw him walking and praising God.
10 They recognized him as the same man who used to sit and beg at the temple gate called Beautiful. They were filled with wonder. They were amazed at what had happened to him.
