1 Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.

The lame man healed at the gate of the Temple Acts 3:1-10 (Beautiful Gate, The Temple, Jerusalem) -
2 And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at that gate of the temple which is called Beautiful to ask alms of those who entered the temple.  
3 Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked for alms.  
4 And Peter directed his gaze at him, with John, and said, "Look at us."  
5 And he fixed his attention upon them, expecting to receive something from them.  
6 But Peter said, "I have no silver and gold, but I give you what I have; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."  
7 And he took him by the right hand and raised him up; and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong.  
8 And leaping up he stood and walked and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.  
9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God,  
10 and recognized him as the one who sat for alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.  
11 While he clung to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the portico called Solomon's, astounded.

Peter's Speech in Solomon's Portico Ac.3.11-26 (Solomon's Portico, The Temple, Jerusalem) -
12 And when Peter saw it he addressed the people, "Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we had made him walk?  
13 The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him.

- The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, Ac.3.13 - Ex.3.6, Is.52.13, Is.53.11
14 But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you,  
15 and killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.  
16 And his name, by faith in his name, has made this man strong whom you see and know; and the faith which is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.

17 "And now, brethren, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers.

18 But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ should suffer, he thus fulfilled.  
19 Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out,  
20 that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah appointed for you, Jesus,  
21 whom heaven must receive until the time for establishing all that God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old.

22 Moses said, 'The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet from your brethren as he raised me up. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.

- 'The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet Ac.3.22 - Dt.18.15-19
23 And it shall be that every soul that does not listen to that prophet shall be destroyed from the people.'

- And it shall be that every soul that does not listen Ac.3.23 - Lv.23.29
24 And all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those who came afterwards, also proclaimed these days.  
25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God gave to your fathers, saying to Abraham, 'And in your posterity shall all the families of the earth be blessed.'

- the covenant which God gave to your fathers Ac.3.25 - Gn.12.3, Gn.22.18
26 God, having raised up his servant, sent him to you first, to bless you in turning every one of you from your wickedness."

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
