|Now Peter and John went up to the temple at the ninth hour of prayer.
|And a certain man, who was lame from his mother’s womb, was being carried in. They would lay him every day at the gate of the temple, which is called the Beautiful, so that he might request alms from those entering into the temple.
|And this man, when he had seen Peter and John beginning to enter the temple, was begging, so that he might receive alms.
|Then Peter and John, gazing at him, said, “Look at us.”
|And he looked intently at them, hoping that he might receive something from them.
|But Peter said: “Silver and gold is not mine. But what I have, I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise up and walk.”
|And taking him by the right hand, he lifted him up. And immediately his legs and feet were strengthened.
|And leaping up, he stood and walked around. And he entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God.
|And all the people saw him walking and praising God.
|And they recognized him, that he was the same one who was sitting for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple. And they were filled with awe and amazement at what had happened to him.
