The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

"Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet. "Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God hath made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom ye crucified.

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and the rest of the apostles, 38 Brethren, what shall we do? "And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye "For to you 39) shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. is the promise, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call unto him. 40 "And with many other words he testified, and exhorted them, saying, Save yourselves from this crooked genera(41) tion. "They then that received his word were baptized: and there were added unto them in that day about three (42 thousand souls. "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and the prayers.




And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and 44 signs were done by the apostles". "And all that believed (45 were together, and had all things common; "and they sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all, 46) according as any man had need.

Now Peter and John were going up into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. "And a certain man that was lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; "who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked to receive an alms. "And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him, with John, said, Look on us. 5 "And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive some(6 thing from them. "But Peter said, Silver and gold have

"And he took him by the right hand, and raised him up: and immediate8)ly his feet and his ankle-bones received strength. "And leaping up, he stood, and began to walk; and he entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, 9 and praising God. "And all the people saw him walking and praising God: "and they took knowledge of him, that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.



(II And as he held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, 12 greatly wondering. "And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this 3man? or why fasten ye your eyes on us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him to walk?

And as they spake unto the people, 'the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees came upon 2 them, "being sore troubled because they taught the people, and proclaimed in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. "And they laid hands on them, and put them in ward unto the morrow: for it was now eventide. "But many of them that heard the word believed; and the number of the men came to be about five thousand. *5) And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusa+6 lem; "and Annas the high priest was there, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kin7 dred of the high priest. "And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, By what power, or in what (8 name, have ye done this? "Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and 9 elders, "if we this day are examined concerning a good deed done to an impotent man, by what means this 10 man is 3made whole; "be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even in him doth this man stand here before II you whole. "He is the stone which was set at nought of you the builders, which was made the head of the corner. "And in none other is there salvation: for neither is there any other name under heaven, that is given among men, wherein we must be saved.



Now when they beheld the boldness of Peter and John, and had perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them,

"But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among (16 themselves, "saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable 'miracle hath been wrought through them, is manifest to all that dwell in Jerusalem; and we (17 cannot deny it. "But that it spread no further among the people, let us threaten them, that they speak hence18 forth to no man in this name. "And they called them,

and charged them not to speak at all nor teach in the 19 name of Jesus. "But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to 20 hearken unto you rather than unto God, judge ye: "for we cannot but speak the things which we saw and heard. 21) "And they, when they had further threatened them, let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people; for all men glorified God for that which was done. "For the man was more than forty years old, on whom this 1 miracle of healing was wrought. And being let go, they came to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said (24) unto them. "And they, when they heard it, lifted up
