Acts 3:11-26 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 But when they saw Peter and John, all the people ran to them at the porch that was called of Solomon, and wondered greatly. [Soothly when they saw Peter and John, all the people ran to them at the porch that is called of Solomon, wondering greatly.]

12 And Peter saw, and answered to the people, Men of Israel, what wonder ye in this thing? either what behold ye us, as by our virtue either power we made this man for to walk[a]?

13 God of Abraham, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, [and] God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus, whom ye betrayed, and denied before the face of Pilate, when he deemed him to be delivered[b].

14 But ye denied the holy and the rightful, and asked a manslayer to be given to you. [Ye forsooth denied the holy and just, and asked a man-homicide, or manslayer, to be given to you.]

15 And ye slew the maker of life, whom God raised from death [whom God raised from dead], of whom we be witnesses.

16 And in the faith of his name he hath confirmed this man, whom ye see and know; the name of him, and the faith that is by him, gave to this man full healing in the sight of all you [gave this full health in the sight of all you].

17 And now, brethren, I wot that by unwitting ye did, as also your princes.

18 But God that before-told by the mouth of all prophets, that his Christ should suffer, hath fulfilled so.

19 Therefore be ye repentant, and be ye converted, that your sins be done away, that when the times of refreshing shall come from the sight of the Lord,

20 and he shall send that Jesus Christ, that is now preached to you.

21 Whom it behooveth heaven to receive, [till] into the times of restitution of all things, which the Lord spake by the mouth of his holy prophets from the world.

22 For Moses said, For the Lord your God shall raise to you a prophet, of your brethren; as me, ye shall hear him by all things [as me, ye shall hear him upon all things], whatever he shall speak to you.

23 And it shall be, that every man that shall not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from the people.[c]

24 And all prophets from Samuel and afterward, that spake, told these days.

25 But ye be the sons of prophets [Ye forsooth be the sons of prophets], and of the testament, that God ordained to our fathers, and said [saying] to Abraham, In thy seed all the families of earth shall be blessed.

26 God raised his Son first to you, and sent him blessing you [God raising his Son first to you, sent him blessing you], that each man convert him from his wickedness.

Acts 3:11-26 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

11 And as the lame man who was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran amazed to them in Solomon’s porch.

12 When Peter saw this, he spoke to the people: Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why do you look so steadfastly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man walk? 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate when he had determined to release him. 14 But you denied the Holy and Just One, and asked for a murderer to be given to you, 15 and killed the Lord of Life – whom God has raised from death, of which we are witnesses. 16 And his name, through the faith of his name, has made this man sound, whom you see and know. And the faith which is by him has given this man health in the presence of you all.

17 And now, brethren, I know well that you did it through ignorance, as did also your leaders. 18 But those things that God before had shown by the mouth of all his prophets, how the Christ would suffer, he has fulfilled this way. 19 Repent therefore, and turn, so that your sins may be put away when the time of refreshing comes, which we will have from the presence of the Lord, 20 and when God will send him who now before is preached to you; that is to say, Jesus Christ, 21 who must receive heaven until the time that all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began, are restored again.

22 For Moses said to the fathers: The Lord your God will raise up a prophet for you, even from among your brethren, as he did me. Him you must hear, in all things whatsoever he says to you. 23 For the time will come that every soul who will not hear that same prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. 24 Also all the prophets from Samuel onwards, as many as have spoken, have likewise told of these days.

25 You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant that God made to our fathers, saying to Abraham: Even in your seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. 26 First unto you has God raised up his Son Jesus, and him he has sent to bless you, that every one of you should turn from your wickedness.

Acts 3:11-26 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 ¶ And as the cripple which was healed, [a]held Peter and John, all the people ran amazed unto them in the porch which is called Solomon’s.

12 [b]So when Peter saw it, 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 godliness, we had made this man go?

13 The God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers hath glorified his Son Jesus, whom ye betrayed, and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had judged him to be delivered.

14 But ye denied the Holy one and the just, and desired a murderer to be given you,

15 And killed the Lord [c]of life, whom God hath raised from the dead, whereof we are witnesses.

16 And his Name hath made this man sound, whom ye see and know, through faith in his Name: [d]and the faith which is by him, hath given to him this perfect health of his whole body in the presence of you all.

17 [e]And now brethren, I know that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your governors.

18 But those things, which God before had showed [f]by the mouth of all his Prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath thus fulfilled.

19 Amend your lives therefore, and turn, that your sins may be put away, when the time of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you.

21 [g]Whom the heaven must contain until the time that all things be restored, which God had spoken by the mouth of all his holy Prophets since the world began.

22 For Moses said unto the Fathers, The Lord your God shall raise up unto you [h]a Prophet, even of your brethren, like unto me: ye shall hear him in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

23 For it shall be that every person which shall not hear that Prophet, shall be destroyed out of the people.

24 Also all the Prophets [i]from Samuel, and thenceforth as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.

25 [j]Ye are the [k]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.

26 First unto you hath God [l]raised up his Son Jesus, and him he hath sent to bless you, in turning everyone of you from your iniquities.

Acts 3:11-26 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

11 And 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? 13 The 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. 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; 15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. 16 And 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. 17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. 18 But 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; 20 and he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 whom 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. 22 For 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. 23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. 24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. 25 Ye 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. 26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
