Bible: Acts 3:1-11
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.
