8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church which was in Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
8:4 They therefore that were scattered abroad, went about preaching the word.
8:5 And Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and proclaimed unto them the Christ.
8:6 And the multitudes gave heed with one accord unto the things that were spoken by Philip, when they heard, and saw the signs which he did.
8:8 And there was much joy in that city.
8:9 But there was a certain man, Simon by name, who beforetime in the city used sorcery, and amazed the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:
8:13 And Simon also himself believed: and being baptized, he continued with Philip; and beholding signs and great miracles wrought, he was amazed.
8:15 who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit:
8:16 for as yet it was fallen upon none of them: only they had been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.
8:17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
8:18 Now when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles` hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money,
8:19 saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay my hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit.
8:24 And Simon answered and said, Pray ye for me to the Lord, that none of the things which ye have spoken come upon me.
8:25 They therefore, when they had testified and spoken the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel to many villages of the Samaritans.
8:26 But an angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza: the same is desert.
8:27 And he arose and went: and behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was over all her treasure, who had come to Jerusalem to worship;
8:28 and he was returning and sitting in his chariot, and was reading the prophet Isaiah.
8:29 And the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
8:30 And Philip ran to him, and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
8:31 And he said, How can I, except some one shall guide me? And he besought Philip to come up and sit with him.
8:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: His generation who shall declare? For his life is taken from the earth.
8:34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other?
8:35 And Philip opened his mouth, and beginning from this Scripture, preached unto him Jesus.
8:39 And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip; and the eunuch saw him no more, for he went on his way rejoicing.
8:40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached the gospel to all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
