Chapter 3

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)


      Peter and John went up together into the temple at the ninth hour of prayer. And there was a certain man halt from his mothers womb, whom they brought and laid at the gate of the temple called beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple. Which same when he saw Peter and John, that they would into the temple, desired to receive an alms. And Peter fastened his eyes on him with John and said: look on us. And he gave heed unto them, trusting to receive something of them. Then said Peter: Silver and gold have I none, such as I have, give I thee. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up. And immediately his feet and anklebones received strength. And he sprang, stood and also walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping and lauding God.
      And all the people saw him walk and *laud God. And they knew him, that it was he which sat and begged at the beautiful gate of the temple. And they wondered and were sore astonied at that which had happened unto him. And as the halt which was healed, held Peter and John, all the people ran amazed unto them in Solomons porch.
      When Peter saw that, he answered unto the people. Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this, or why look ye so steadfastly on us, as though by our own power or holiness, we had made this man go? The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers hath glorified his son Jesus, whom ye delivered, and denied in the presence of Pilate when he had judged him to be loosed. But ye denied the holy and just, and desired a murderer to be given you, and killed the Lord of life, whom God hath raised from death, of the which we are witnesses. And his name through the faith of his name, hath made this man sound, whom ye see and know. And the faith which is by him, hath given to him this health in the presence of you all.
      And now brethren I *wot well that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your heads. But those things which God before had showed, by the mouth of all his Prophets, how that Christ should suffer, he hath thus wise fulfilled. Repent ye therefore and turn, that your sins may be done away, when the time of refreshing cometh, which we shall have of the presence of the Lord, and when God shall send him, which before was preached unto you, that is to wit Jesus Christ, which must receive heaven until the time that all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy Prophets since the world began, be restored again.
      For Moses said unto the fathers: A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you, even of your brethren like unto me: him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. For the time will come, that every soul which shall not hear that same Prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Also all the Prophets from Samuel and thenceforth, as many as have spoken, have in like wise told of these days.
      Ye are the children of the Prophets, and of the covenant, which God hath made unto our fathers, saying to Abraham: Even in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. First unto you hath God raised up his son Jesus, and him he hath sent to bless you, that every one of you should turn from your wickedness.

*laud (celebrate, glorify) *wot (know) wit (know it sharply )
