The Lame Beggar Healed

Acts 3

1 Now Peter and John were o going up to the temple at p the hour of prayer, q the ninth hour. 1 2 And a man r lame from birth was being carried, s whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate t to ask alms of those entering the temple. 3 Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. 4 And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, "Look at us." 5 And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 But Peter said, u "I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. v In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!" 7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. 8 And w leaping up he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 9 And x all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 and recognized him as the one who sat at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, asking for alms. And they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
