36 all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God made*
that Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and
Christ.” 37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the
heart, and said to Peter, and to the rest of the apostles, 38 “ Brethren, what shall we do?” Then Peter said unto
them, “ Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in
the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins; and 39 ye shall receive the gift of the holy spirit. For the pro
mise is to you, and to your children ; and to all that are 40 afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call.” And
with many other words he testified and exhorted, saying,
“ Save yourselves from this perverse generation." 41 Then those who [gladly) received his words, were bap
tized : and on that day about three thousand persons were 42 added to the churcht. And they stedfastly continued in
the doctrine of the apostles, and in fellowship, and in the 43 breaking of bread, and in prayers.
And fear came upon every one ; and many wonders and signs were done by 44 the apostles. And all who believed were together, and 45 had all things common; and sold their possessions and
substance, and parted them among all, as every one had 46 need. And stedfastly continuing in the temple every
daył with one consent, and breaking bread from house
to house, they partook of food with gladness, and single47 ness of heart; praising God, and having favour with all
the people. And the Lord daily added to the church
those who were saved). CH. III. Now Peter and John went up together into the tem2 ple at the hour of prayer, which was the ninth hour. And
a certain man, lame from his mother's womb, was carried ; who was laid daily at the gate of the temple, which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of those that entered into the

s temple: who, when he saw Peter and John about to go 4 into the temple, asked to receive alms. Then Peter and
John earnestly beheld him; and Peter said *, “ Look on 5 us.” And he gave heed to them, expecting to receive 6 something from them. Then Peter said, “ Silver and
gold I have not : but such as I have, I give unto thee.
In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise and walk.” 7 And Peter took him by the right hand, and raised him
up; and immediately his feet and ancle-bones were 8 strengthened : and leaping up, he stood and walked, and
entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, 9 and praising God. And all the people saw him walking, 10 and praising God; and they knew that it was he who
used to sit for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple :
and they were filled with astonishment and amazement at 11 that which had befallen him. And as het held Peter and
John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch
which is called Solomon's, much astonished. 12 And when Peter saw it, he said to the people, “ Ye
men of Israel, why wonder ye at this ? or why look ye
earnestly on us, as though by our own power or godli13 ness we had made this man to walk? The God of Abra
ham and of Isaac and of Jacob, even the God of our fathers, hath glorified his servant Jesus; whom ye deli
vered up, and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he 14 had determined to release him. But ye denied the holy
and righteous one ; and desired a murtherer to be granted 15 unto you ; and killed the conductor to lifell, whom God is through Jesus, gave* him this perfect soundness in the 17 presence

this man, whom ye see and know : yea, our faith, which

of you all. And now, brethren, I know that 18 through ignorance ye did it; as did your rulers also. But
those things which God foreshewed by the mouth of all
the prophets that his Christt would suffer, he hath thus 19 fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins
may be blotted out, when the times of refresh. 20 ment shall come from the presence of the Lord ; and he
shall send Jesus Christ, that was before appointed for 21 yout: whom heaven must receive, until the times of the
restoration of all thingsli, concerning which God hath
spoken by the mouth of his holy prophets [since the 22 world began.] Now Moses said (to our fathers,] "The
Lord your God will raise up unto you from your breth
ren, a prophet like me ; to him ye shall hearken in all 23 things, whatsoever he shall speak unto you. And it shall
come to pass that every one who shall not hear that pro24 phet, shall be destroyed from among the people.' Yea,
and all the prophets, from Samuel and those who follow
after, as many as have spoken, have toldtt likewise of 25 these days. Ye are the sons of the prophets, and of the
covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto
Abraham, 'And in thine offspring all the families of the 26 earth shall be blessed.' Unto you first, God, having rais
ed up his servantff, hath sent him|||| to bless you, by
turning away every one of you from his iniquities." Ch. iv. And as the apostles were speaking to the people, the
priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, 2 came suddenly upon them; being grieved that they taught

the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection 3 from the dead : and they laid their hands on them, and
put them in prison until the next day : for it was now 4 evening. (However, many of those, that had heard the
discourse of Peter*, believed : and the number of the
men was about five thousand.) 5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, 6 and clders, and scribes, and Annas the high-priest, and
Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as
were of the race of the high-priest, were gathered together 7 in Jerusalem. And when they had set the apostles in the
midst, they asked, “By what power, or by what name, 8 have ye done this ?” Then Peter, filled with the holy spi
rit, said unto them, “Ye rulers of the people, and elders 9 of Israel, if we be examined this day concerning the good
deed done to the infirm man, by what means he hath been 10 made wellt; be it known to you all, and to all the peo
ple of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, but whom God raised from the dead,

healing|| by any other : for there is no other name under
heaven given among men, by which we can be healed." 13 Now, when they observed the free speech of Peter and
John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ob
scure men, they wondered ; and they knew that these men 14 had been with Jesus. And beholding the man that had
been restored standing with them, they had nothing to 15 object. But when they had commanded them to with
draw out of the council, they conferred among them16 selves, saying, “ What shall we do to these men ? for that indeed a signal miracle hath been wrought by them,

is manifest to all those who dwell in Jerusalem, and we 17 cannot deny. But, that it spread no further among
the people, let us strictly threaten them that henceforth 18 they speak to no man in this name.” And they called
the apostles, and commanded them not to speak at all, nor 19 teach, in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John an
swered and said unto them, “ Whether it be right before
God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye ; 20 for we cannot but speak the things which we have seen 21 and heard.” So when they had further threatened them,
they released them ; not finding how they might punish
them, on account of the people ; for all men glorified 22 God because of that which had been done. For the man
was more than forty years old, on whom this miracle of
curing had been wrought. 23 And having been released, they went to their own com
pany, and reported all which the chief-priests and elders 24 had said unto them. And when* their own company had
heard it, they lifted up their voice to God with one consent, and said ; “O sovereign Lord, thou art God, who
madest heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that is in 25 them : who saidst also by the mouth of thy servant Da
vid, "Why did the gentiles rage, and the peoplest ima26 gine vain things? Why did kings of the earth stand
up, and why were the rulers gathered together, against 27 the Lord, and against his anointed ?' For in truth, against
thy holy servant Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both
Herod and Pontius Pilate, and the gentiles, and the peo. 28 ple of Israel, were gathered together in this city ; to do
whatsoever thy hand and thy counseltt determined before 29 to be done. And now, Lord, behold their threatenings :
