In a loud voice.
On your feet!’
The crippled man
Then he walked.”
εἶπεν μεγάλῃ φωνῇ Ἀνάστηθι ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας σου ὀρθός. καὶ ἥλατο καὶ περιεπάτει.
The author of Acts indicated that Paul said (εἶπεν) in a loud voice (μεγάλῃ φωνῇ) that this lifetime crippled man should stand (Ἀνάστηθι) upright (ὀρθός) on his feet (ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας σου). The man did exactly that. He sprang up (καὶ ἥλατο) and began to walk (καὶ περιεπάτει). Paul had become a miracle worker just like he was in Cyprus, chapter 13:9-11, when he forced the false Jewish prophet Elymas to become blind. Here Paul seemed to shout at this crippled man that he should get on his feet and stand straight up. This lame person jumped and started walking. Nothing complicated here. Paul told the lame man to do something and he did it. Would you do something if someone shouted at you?
