Bible: Acts 3:1-10

Peter and John Heal a Lame Man at the Temple

3:1 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time 1  for prayer, 2  at three o’clock in the afternoon. 3  3:2 And a man lame 4  from birth 5  was being carried up, who was placed at the temple gate called “the Beautiful Gate” every day 6  so he could beg for money 7  from those going into the temple courts. 8  3:3 When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple courts, 9  he asked them for money. 10  3:4 Peter looked directly 11  at him (as did John) and said, “Look at us! 3:5 So the lame man 12  paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them. 3:6 But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, 13  but what I do have I give you. In the name 14  of Jesus Christ 15  the Nazarene, stand up and 16  walk! 3:7 Then 17  Peter 18  took hold 19  of him by the right hand and raised him up, and at once the man’s 20  feet and ankles were made strong. 21  3:8 He 22  jumped up, 23  stood and began walking around, and he entered the temple courts 24  with them, walking and leaping and praising God. 3:9 All 25  the people saw him walking and praising God, 3:10 and they recognized him as the man who used to sit and ask for donations 26  at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and they were filled with astonishment and amazement 27  at what had happened to him.
