1Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. 2And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; 3Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. 4And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. 5And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. 6Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. 7And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. 9And all the people saw him walking and praising God: 10And they knew 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. 11And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.
12¶ And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? 13The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. 14But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; 15And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. 16And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. 17And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. 18But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
19¶ Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; 20And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. 22For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. 23And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. 24Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. 25Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. 26Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
Petro Amponya Mlemavu Kwa Jina La Yesu
13:1 Lk 22:8; Mdo 2:46; Za 55:17; Mdo 10:30Siku moja Petro na Yohana walikuwa wanapanda kwenda Hekaluni kusali yapata saa tisa alasiri. 23:2 Mdo 14:8; Lk 16:20; Yn 9:8Basi palikuwa na mtu mmoja aliyekuwa kiwete tangu kuzaliwa. Alichukuliwa na kuwekwa kwenye lango la Hekalu liitwalo Zuri, kila siku ili aombe msaada kwa watu wanaoingia Hekaluni. 3Huyu mtu alipowaona Petro na Yohana wakikaribia kuingia Hekaluni, akawaomba wampe sadaka. 43:4 Mdo 14:9Wakamkazia macho, kisha Petro akamwambia, “Tutazame sisi.” 5Hivyo yule mtu akawatazama, akitazamia kupata kitu kutoka kwao.
63:6 Mk 1:24; Mdo 14:10Ndipo Petro akamwambia, “Sina fedha wala dhahabu, lakini nilicho nacho ndicho nikupacho. Kwa jina la Yesu Kristo wa Nazareti, tembea!” 7Petro akamshika yule mtu kwa mkono wa kuume akamwinua, mara nyayo zake na vifundo vya miguu yake vikapata nguvu. 83:8 Isa 35:6; Mdo 14:10Akaruka juu na kusimama, akaanza kutembea. Kisha akaingia Hekaluni pamoja na Petro na Yohana, huku akitembea na kurukaruka na kumsifu Mungu. 93:9 Mdo 4:16, 21Watu wote walipomwona akitembea na kumsifu Mungu, 103:10 Mdo 3:2; Yn 9:8wakamtambua kuwa ni yule mtu aliyekuwa akiketi nje ya Hekalu penye lango liitwalo Zuri akiomba msaada, nao wakajawa na mshangao, wakastaajabu juu ya yale yaliyomtukia.
Petro Anashuhudia Kuwa Yesu Anaponya
113:11 Lk 22:8; Yn 10:23; Mdo 5:12Aliyeponywa alipokuwa akiambatana na Petro na Yohana, watu wote walishangaa mno, wakaja wakiwakimbilia pale ukumbi wa Solomoni. 12Petro alipoona watu wamekusanyika akawaambia, “Enyi Waisraeli, kwa nini mnastaajabu kuhusu jambo hili? Mbona mnatukazia macho kwa mshangao kana kwamba ni kwa uwezo wetu au utakatifu wetu tumemfanya mtu huyu kutembea? 133:13 Mdo 7:32; 22:14; Mt 27; 2; Lk 23:4Mungu wa Abrahamu na Isaki na Yakobo, Mungu wa baba zetu amemtukuza Mwanawe Yesu, ambaye ninyi mlimtoa ahukumiwe kifo na mkamkana mbele ya Pilato, ingawa yeye alikuwa ameamua kumwachia aende zake. 143:14 Mdo 4:27; 7:52; Mk 15:11; Lk 23:18-25Ninyi mlimkataa huyo Mtakatifu na Mwenye Haki mkaomba mpewe yule muuaji. 153:15 Mdo 2:24; 2:32Hivyo mkamuua aliye chanzo cha uzima, lakini Mungu akamfufua kutoka kwa wafu. Sisi tu mashahidi wa mambo haya. 163:16 Mt 9:22; Mdo 4:10; 14:9Kwa imani katika jina la Yesu, huyu mtu mnayemwona na kumfahamu ametiwa nguvu. Ni kwa jina la Yesu na imani itokayo kwake ambayo imemponya kabisa huyu mtu, kama ninyi wote mnavyoona.
173:17 Lk 23:34; Mdo 13:27“Sasa ndugu zangu, najua ya kuwa ninyi mlitenda bila kujua, kama walivyofanya viongozi wenu. 183:18 Mdo 17:2-3; Lk 24:27; Mdo 26:22-27Lakini kwa njia hii Mungu alitimiza kile ambacho alikuwa ametabiri kwa vinywa vya manabii wake wote, kwamba Kristo3:18 Kristo maana yake ni Masiya, yaani Aliyetiwa mafuta. atateswa. 193:19 Za 5:11; Mdo 2:38Tubuni basi mkamgeukie Mungu, dhambi zenu zifutwe, ili zipate kuja nyakati za kuburudishwa kwa kuwepo kwake Bwana, 203:20 Lk 2:11naye apate kumtuma Kristo, ambaye ameteuliwa kwa ajili yenu, yaani Yesu. 213:21 Mdo 1:11; Mt 17:11; Lk 1:70Ilimpasa mbingu zimpokee mpaka wakati wa kufanywa upya kila kitu, kama Mungu alivyoahidi zamani kupitia kwa vinywa vya manabii wake watakatifu. 223:22 Kum 18:15-18; Mdo 7:37Kwa maana Mose alisema, ‘Bwana Mungu wenu atawainulia nabii kama mimi kutoka miongoni mwa ndugu zenu. Itawapasa kumtii huyo kwa kila jambo atakalowaambia. 233:23 Kum 18:19; Law 23:29Mtu yeyote ambaye hatamsikiliza huyo nabii, atatupiliwa mbali kabisa na watu wake.’
243:24 Lk 24:27“Naam, manabii wote tangu Samweli na waliokuja baada yake, wote walitabiri kuhusu siku hizi. 253:25 Mdo 2:39; Rum 9:4-5; Mwa 22:18; 28:14Ninyi ndio wana wa manabii na wa Agano ambalo Mungu alifanya na baba zenu, akimwambia Abrahamu, ‘Kupitia kwa uzao wako, watu wote wa ulimwengu watabarikiwa.’ 263:26 Mdo 2:24; 13:46; Rum 1:16Mungu alipomfufua Yesu Mwanawe, alimtuma kwenu kwanza, ili awabariki kwa kumgeuza kila mmoja wenu kutoka njia yake mbaya.”
