1Peter and John were going up to the temple at three o’clock in the afternoon, the established prayer time. 2Meanwhile, a man crippled since birth was being carried in. Every day, people would place him at the temple gate known as the Beautiful Gate so he could ask for money from those entering the temple. 3When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he began to ask them for a gift. 4Peter and John stared at him. Peter said, "Look at us!" 5So the man gazed at them, expecting to receive something from them. 6Peter said, "I don’t have any money, but I will give you what I do have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, rise up and walk!" 7Then he grasped the man’s right hand and raised him up. At once his feet and ankles became strong. 8Jumping up, he began to walk around. He entered the temple with them, walking, leaping, and praising God. 9All the people saw him walking and praising God. 10They recognized him as the same one who used to sit at the temple’s Beautiful Gate asking for money. They were filled with amazement and surprise at what had happened to him.
