Acts 3:16

By faith in his name (thi pistei tou onomatov autou).
Instrumental case of pistei (Aleph and B do not have epi) and objective genitive of onomatov.

His name (to onoma autou).
Repeats the word name to make the point clear. Cf. verse 6 where Peter uses "the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth" when he healed the man.

Made strong (esterewsen).
Same verb used in verse 7 (and 16:5). Nowhere else in the N.T. Old verb from stereov, firm, solid.

Through him (di' autou).
Through Jesus, the object of faith and the source of it.

Perfect soundness (oloklhrian).
Perfect in all its parts, complete, whole (from olov, whole, klhrov, allotment). Late word (Plutarch) once in LXX (Isaiah 1:6) and here alone in the N.T., but adjective oloklhrov, old and common (James 1:4; 1 Thessalonians 5:23).
