Context
Peter Speaks in Solomon's Colonnade

11And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering. 12And when Peter saw it, he answered to the people, You men of Israel, why marvel you at this? or why look you so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? 13The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his Son Jesus; whom you delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. 14But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted to you; 15And killed the Prince of life, whom God has raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. 16And his name through faith in his name has made this man strong, whom you see and know: yes, the faith which is by him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. 17And now, brothers, I know that through ignorance you did it, as did also your rulers. 18But those things, which God before had showed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he has so fulfilled. 19Repent you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached to you: 21Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. 22For Moses truly said to the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up to you of your brothers, like to me; him shall you hear in all things whatever he shall say to you. 23And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. 24Yes, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. 25You are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying to Abraham, And in your seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. 26To you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
