Chapter XXIV.—The Sick Healed.

When he had thus spoken, all of them remained, some in order to be healed, and others to see those who obtained cures.  But Peter, only laying his hands upon them, and praying, healed them; 1107 so that those who were straightway cured were exceeding glad, and those who looked on exceedingly wondered, and blessed God, and believed with a firm hope, and with those who had been healed departed to their own homes, having received a charge to meet early on the following day.  And when they had gone, Peter remained there with his associates, and partook of food, and refreshed himself with sleep.
