Aramaic Bible in Plain English
And it was that when Shimeon Kaypha and Yohannan went up together to The Temple at the time of prayer, which was the ninth hour,
Behold, men who were keeping an appointment were carrying one man crippled from his mother's womb, bringing and placing him at the gate of The Temple, which is called Shappira, to be asking charity from those entering The Temple.
This one, when he saw Shimeon and Yohannan entering The Temple, was begging them to give him charity.
And Shimeon and Yohannan gazed at him and they said to him, “Look at us.”
And he gazed at them, as he had hoped to receive something from them.
Shimeon said to him, “I have no gold or silver, but what I do have, I give to you: In the name of Yeshua The Messiah, the Nazarene, stand up and walk.”
And he seized his right hand and raised him up, and in that moment, his legs and his feet were restored.
And he jumped, stood and walked and entered with them into The Temple as he was walking and jumping and praising God.
And all the people saw as he was walking and praising God.
And they knew that he was that beggar who sat every day and asked for charity at the gate, which is called Shappira, and they were filled with astonishment and wonder concerning what had happened.
11And as he was holding to Shimeon and Yohannan, all the people, while marveling, ran to them at the porch which is called Solomon's.
12And when Shimeon saw it, he answered and said to them, “Men, children of Israel: why do you wonder at this, or why do you gaze as if it was by our own power or by our authority that we have done this, that this man would walk?
13“The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, The God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Yeshua, him whom you handed over and rejected in the presence of Pilatus, when he had rightly judged to release him.”
14“But you rejected The Holy One and The Righteous One and you demanded a man who was a murderer to be given to you.”
15“And you killed him, The Ruler of Life, whom God raised from among the dead, and we are all his witnesses.”
16“And by the faith of his Name, this one whom you see and know, he has restored and healed, and faith in him has given him this health before you all.”
17“But now my brothers, I know that because of deception you did this as your Rulers did.”
18“And God has thus fulfilled the thing which before was preached by the mouth of all The Prophets, that his Messiah would suffer.”
19“Repent therefore and be converted, so that your sins will be blotted out, and the times of rest from before the face of THE LORD JEHOVAH will come to you.”
20“And he shall send to you The One who was prepared for you, Yeshua The Messiah.”
21“Whom Heaven must receive until the end times of all those things which God has spoken by the mouth of all his Holy Prophets, who were from ancient times.”
22“Moses said, 'THE LORD JEHOVAH shall raise up to you a Prophet like me from your brothers. Hear him in everything that he will speak with you.'”
23“It shall be that every soul who will not hear that Prophet, that soul shall perish from among his people.”
24“And all The Prophets from Samuel and those who were after him have spoken and preached of these days.”
25“You are the children of The Prophets and of the covenant which God appointed to our fathers, when he said to Abraham, 'By your Seed all the families of The Earth shall be blessed.' “
26“God appointed to you from the first and sent his Son to bless you, if you are converted, and you return from your evils.”
