Acts - Chapter 8
  • 1. Now Saul was consenting to his death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.
  • 2. And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
  • 3. As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison.
  • 4. Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.
  • 5. Then Philip went down to the {cf2super [42]} city of Samaria and preached Christ to them.
  • 6. And the multitudes with one accord heeded the things spoken by Philip, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
  • 7. For unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were paralyzed and lame were healed.
  • 8. And there was great joy in that city.
  • 9. But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great,
  • 10. to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, "This man is the great power of God."
  • 11. And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceries for a long time.
  • 12. But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.
  • 13. Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done.
  • 14. Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them,
  • 15. who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.
  • 16. For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
  • 17. Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
  • 18. And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,
  • 19. saying, "Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit."
  • 20. But Peter said to him, "Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money!
  • 21. You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God.
  • 22. Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.
  • 23. For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity."
  • 24. Then Simon answered and said, "Pray to the Lord for me, that none of the things which you have spoken may come upon me."
  • 25. So when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.
  • 26. Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." This is desert.
  • 27. So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship,
  • 28. was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet.
  • 29. Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go near and overtake this chariot."
  • 30. So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?"
  • 31. And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.
  • 32. The place in the Scripture which he read was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
  • 33. In His humiliation His justice was taken away, And who will declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth." {cf2super [43]}
  • 34. So the eunuch answered Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?"
  • 35. Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.
  • 36. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?"
  • 37. Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." {cf2super [44]}
  • 38. So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.
  • 39. Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.
  • 40. But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.
