4. Peter's Second Message to the Jews

a. The Healing of a Lame Man

1 Now Peter and John were going up into the 1atemple at the 2bninth-hour prayer;

2 And a certain man who had been alame from his mother's womb was being carried there, whom they had laid day by day at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful to ask alms from those entering into the temple.

3 And he, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, began to ask to receive alms.

4 And Peter, gazing at him with John, said, Look at us!

5 And he turned his attention to them, expecting to receive something from them.

6 But Peter said, 1Silver and gold I do anot possess, but what I have, this I give to you: In the bname of Jesus Christ the 2cNazarene 3rise up and walk.

7 And he seized him by the right hand and raised him up; and instantly his feet and ankles were made strong.

8 And aleaping up and about, he stood and began to walk, and he entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and bpraising God.

9 And all the apeople saw him walking and praising God,

10 And they recognized him, that he was the one who had been sitting for alms at the temple's Beautiful Gate; and they were filled with amazement and astonishment at what had happened to him.
