1 G1161 And G4569 Saul G2258 was G4909 consenting unto G846 his G336 death. G1161 And G1722 there arose on G1565 that G2250 day G1096 a G3173 great G1375 persecution G1909 against G1577 the church G3588 which was G1722 in G2414 Jerusalem; G5037 and G1289 they were G3956 all G1289 scattered abroad G2596 throughout G5561 the regions G2449 of Judaea G2532 and G4540 Samaria, G4133 except G652 the apostles.
2 G1161 And G2126 devout G435 men G4792 buried G4736 Stephen, G2532 and G4160 made G3173 great G2870 lamentation G1909 over G846 him.
3 G1161 But G4569 Saul G3075 laid waste G1577 the church, G1531 entering into G2596 every G3624 house, G2532 and G4951 dragging G435 men G5037 and G1135 women G3860 committed G1519 them to G5438 prison.
4 G3588 They G3303 G3767 therefore G1289 that were scattered abroad, G1330 went about G2097 preaching G3056 the word.
5 G1161 And G5376 Philip G2718 went down G1519 to G4172 the city G4540 of Samaria, G2784 and proclaimed G846 unto them G5547 the Christ.
6 G5037 And G3793 the multitudes G4337 gave heed G3661 with one accord G5259 unto G3588 the things G3004 that G3004 were spoken G5376 by Philip, G846 when they G191 heard, G2532 and G991 saw G4592 the signs G3739 which G4160 he did.
7 G1063 For G4183 from many G2192 of those that had G169 unclean G4151 spirits, G1831 they came out, G994 crying G3173 with a loud G5456 voice: G1161 and G4183 many G3886 that were palsied, G2532 and G2323 that were G5560 lame, G2323 were healed.
9 G1161 But there was G5100 a certain G435 man, G4613 Simon G3686 by name, G4391 who beforetime G1722 in G4172 the city G3096 used sorcery, G2532 and G1839 amazed G1484 the people G4540 of Samaria, G3004 giving out that G1438 himself G1511 was G5100 some G3173 great one:
10 G3739 to whom G3956 they all G4337 gave heed, G575 from G3398 the least G2193 to G3173 the greatest, G3004 saying, G3778 This man G2076 is G1411 that power G2316 of God G3173 which is called Great.
11 G1161 And G4337 they gave heed G846 to him, G1223 because that G2425 of long G5550 time G1839 he had amazed G846 them G3095 with his sorceries.
12 G1161 But G3753 when G4100 they believed G5376 Philip G2097 preaching G3588 good tidings G4012 concerning G932 the kingdom G2316 of God G2532 and G3686 the name G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G907 they were baptized, G5037 both G435 men G2532 and G1135 women.
13 G2532 And G4613 Simon G2532 also G846 himself G4100 believed: G2532 and G2258 being G907 baptized, G4342 he continued G5376 with Philip; G5037 and G2334 beholding G3173 G4592 signs G2532 and G1411 great miracles G1096 wrought, G1839 he was amazed.
14 G1161 Now when G652 the apostles G3588 that were G1722 at G2414 Jerusalem G191 heard G3754 that G4540 Samaria G1209 had received G3056 the word G2316 of God, G649 they sent G4314 unto G846 them G4074 Peter G2532 and G2491 John:
15 G3748 who, G2597 when they were come down, G4336 prayed G4012 for G846 them, G3704 that G2983 they might receive G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit:
16 G1063 for G3768 as yet G2258 it was G1968 fallen G1909 upon G3762 none G1161 of them: G3440 only G5225 they had been G907 baptized G1519 into G3686 the name G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus.
17 G5119 Then G2007 laid they G5495 their hands G1909 on G846 them, G2532 and G2983 they received G4151 the Holy G40 Spirit.
18 G1161 Now G4613 when Simon G2300 saw G3754 that G1223 through G1936 the laying on G652 of the apostles' G5495 hands G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G1325 was given, G4374 he offered G846 them G5536 money,
19 G3004 saying, G1325 Give me G2504 also G3778 this G1849 power, G2443 that G302 G3739 on whomsoever G2007 I lay G5495 my hands, G2983 he may receive G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit.
20 G1161 But G4074 Peter G2036 said G4314 unto G846 him, G4675 Thy G694 silver G1519 G684 perish G4862 with G4671 thee, G3754 because G3543 thou hast thought G1223 to G2932 obtain G1431 the gift G2316 of God G5536 with money.
21 G4671 Thou G2076 hast G3756 neither G3310 part G3761 nor G2819 lot G1722 in G5129 this G3056 matter: G1063 for G4675 thy G2588 heart G2076 is G3756 not G2117 right G1799 before G2316 God.
22 G3340 Repent G3767 therefore G575 of G3778 this G4675 thy G2549 wickedness, G2532 and G1189 pray G2316 the Lord, G1487 if G686 perhaps G1963 the thought G4675 of thy G2588 heart G863 shall be forgiven G4671 thee.
23 G1063 For G3708 I see G4571 that thou G5607 art G1519 in G5521 the gall G4088 of bitterness G2532 and G4886 in the bond G93 of iniquity.
24 G1161 And G4613 Simon G611 answered G2036 and said, G1189 Pray G5210 ye G5228 for G1700 me G4314 to G2962 the Lord, G3704 that G3367 none of the things G3739 which G2046 ye have spoken G1904 come G1909 upon G1691 me.
25 G3767 G3588 They G3303 therefore, G1263 when they had testified G3767 and G2980 spoken G3056 the word G2962 of the Lord, G5290 returned G1519 to G2419 Jerusalem, G5037 and G2097 preached the gospel G4183 to many G2968 villages G4541 of the Samaritans.
26 G1161 But G32 an angel G2962 of the Lord G2980 spake G4314 unto G5376 Philip, G3004 saying, G450 Arise, G2532 and G4198 go G2596 toward G3314 the south G1909 unto G3598 the way G3588 that G2597 goeth down G575 from G2419 Jerusalem G1519 unto G1048 Gaza: G3778 the same G2076 is G2048 desert.
27 G2532 And G450 he arose G4198 and went: G2532 and G2400 behold, G435 a man G128 of Ethiopia, G2135 a eunuch G1413 of great authority G2582 under Candace, G938 queen G128 of the Ethiopians, G3739 who G2258 was G1909 over G3956 all G846 her G1047 treasure, G3739 who G2064 had come G1519 to G2419 Jerusalem G4352 to worship;
28 G5037 and G2258 he was G5290 returning G2532 and G2521 sitting G1909 in G846 his G716 chariot, G2532 and G314 was reading G4396 the prophet G2268 Isaiah.
29 G1161 And G4151 the Spirit G2036 said G5376 unto Philip, G4334 Go near, G2532 and G2853 join thyself G5129 to this G716 chariot.
30 G1161 And G5376 Philip G4370 ran to G191 him, and heard G846 him G314 reading G2268 Isaiah G4396 the prophet, G2532 and G1065 said, G1097 Understandest thou G3739 what G314 thou readest?
31 G1161 And G1063 he said, G4459 How G302 G302 can I, G1437 except G3361 G5100 some one G3594 shall guide G3165 me? G5037 And G3870 he besought G5376 Philip G305 to come up G2523 and sit G4862 with G846 him.
32 G4042 Now the passage G1124 of the Scripture G3739 which G314 he was reading G2258 was G3778 this, G71 He was led G5613 as G4263 a sheep G1909 to G4967 the slaughter; G2532 And G5613 as G286 a lamb G1726 before G846 his G2751 shearer G880 is dumb, G3779 So G455 he G3756 openeth not G846 his G4750 mouth:
33 G1722 In G846 his G5014 humiliation G846 his G2920 judgment G142 was taken away: G1161 G846 His G1074 generation G5101 who G1334 shall declare? G3754 For G846 his G2222 life G142 is taken G575 from G1093 the earth.
34 G1161 And G2135 the eunuch G611 answered G5376 Philip, G2036 and said, G1189 I pray G4675 thee, G4012 of G5101 whom G3004 speaketh G4396 the prophet G5124 this? G4012 of G1438 himself, G2228 or G4012 of G5100 some G2087 other?
35 G2532 And G5376 Philip G455 opened G846 his G4750 mouth, G2532 and G756 beginning G575 from G1124 this Scripture, G2097 preached G846 unto him G2424 Jesus.
36 G1161 And G5613 as G4198 they went G2596 on G3598 the way, G2064 they came G1909 unto G5100 a certain G5204 water; G2532 and G2135 the eunuch G5346 saith, G2400 Behold, G5204 here is water; G5101 what G2967 doth hinder G3165 me G907 to be baptized?
38 G2532 And G2753 he commanded G716 the chariot G2476 to stand still: G2532 and G297 they both G2597 went down G1519 into G5204 the water, G5037 both G5376 Philip G2532 and G2135 the eunuch, G2532 and G907 he baptized G846 him.
39 G1161 And G3753 when G305 they came up G1537 out of G5204 the water, G4151 the Spirit G2962 of the Lord G726 caught away G5376 Philip; G2532 and G2135 the eunuch G1492 saw G846 him G3756 no G3765 more, G4198 for he went G846 on his G3598 way G5463 rejoicing.
