Acts 4:8-13, 18-21

Then Peter,
filled with the Holy Spirit,
said to them:
“Rulers and elders of the people!
If we are being called to account today
for an act of kindness shown to a cripple
and are asked how he was healed,
then know this,
you and everyone else in Israel:
It is by the name
of Jesus Christ of Nazareth,
whom you crucified
but whom God raised from the dead,
that this man
stands before you completely healed.
He is ‘the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the capstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else,
for there is no other name under heaven
given to men by which
we must be saved.”
Then they called them in again
and commanded them not to speak
or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
But Peter and John replied,
“Judge for yourselves
whether it is right in God's sight
to obey you rather than God.
For we cannot help speaking
about what we have seen and heard.”
After further threats they let them go.
They could not decide
how to punish them,
because all the people
were praising God
for what had happened.
