3:1Nowe Peter and Iohn went vp together into the Temple at the houre of prayer, beeing the ninth houre.
3:2And a certaine man lame from his mothers womb was caried, whom they laide daily at the gate of the Temple which is called Beautifull, to aske almes of them that entred into the Temple.
3:3Who seeing Peter & Iohn about to go into the Temple, asked an almes.
3:4And Peter fastening his eyes vpon him, with Iohn, said, Looke on vs.
3:5And he gaue heede vnto them, expecting to receiue something of them.
3:6Then Peter said, Siluer and gold haue I none, but such as I haue, giue I thee: In the Name of Iesus Christ of Nazareth, rise vp and walke.
3:7And hee tooke him by the right hand, & lift him vp: aud immediatly his feete and ancle bones receiued strength.
3:8And hee leaping vp, stood, and walked, and entred with them into the Temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
3:9And all the people saw him walking, and praising God.
3:10And they knew that it was hee which sate for almes at the beautifull gate of the Temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened vnto him.
3:11And as the lame man which was healed, helde Peter and Iohn, all the people ranne together vnto them in the porch, that is called Solomons, greatly wondring.
3:12And when Peter sawe it, hee answered vnto the people, Yee men of Israel, why marueile ye at this? or why looke yee so earnestly on vs, as though by our owne power or holinesse we had made this man to walke?
3:13The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Iacob, the God of our fathers hath glorified his sonne Iesus, whom ye deliuered vp, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when hee was determined to let him goe.
3:14But ye denied the Holy one, and the Iust, and desired a murderer to be granted vnto you,
3:15And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead, whereof we are witnesses.
3:16And 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 giuen him this perfect soundnesse in the presence of you all.
3:17And now brethren, I wote that through ignorance yee did it, as did also your rulers.
3:18But those things which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his Prophets, that Christ should suffer, hee hath so fulfilled.
3:19Repent yee therefore, and bee conuerted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shal come from the presence of the Lord.
3:20And hee shall send Iesus Christ, which before was preached vnto you.
3:21Whom the heauen must receiue, vntill the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy Prophets since the world began.
3:22For Moses truely said vnto the fathers, A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise vp vnto you of your brethren, like vnto me; him shall yee heare in all things whatsoeuer he shal say vnto you.
3:23And it shall come to passe, that euery soule which will not heare that Prophet, shalbe destroyed from among the people.
3:24Yea and all the Prophets from Samuel, and those that follow after, as many as haue spoken, haue likewise foretold of these dayes.
3:25Yee are the children of the Prophets, and of the couenant which God made with our fathers, saying vnto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kinreds of the earth be blessed.
3:26Unto you first, God hauing raised vp his Sonne Iesus, sent him to blesse you, in turning away euery one of you from his iniquities.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
