1 G1161 And G4569 Saul G2258 [G5713] was G4909 [G5723] consenting G846 to his G336 death G1161 . And G1722 at G1565 that G2250 time G1096 [G5633] there was G3173 a great G1375 persecution G1909 against G1577 the congregation G3588 which G1722 was at G2414 Jerusalem G5037 ; and G1289 0 they were G3956 all G1289 [G5681] scattered 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 [G5656] carried G4736 Stephen G2532 to his burial, and G4160 [G5668] made G3173 great G2870 lamentation G1909 over G846 him.
3 G1161 As G4569 for Saul G3075 [G5711] , he made havoc G1577 of the congregation G1531 [G5740] , entering into G2596 every G3624 house G4951 G5037 [G5723] , and dragging off G435 men G2532 and G1135 women G3860 [G5707] committed G1519 them to G5438 prison.
4 G3767 G3303 Therefore G1289 [G5651] they that were scattered G1330 [G5627] went every where G2097 [G5734] preaching G3056 the word.
5 G1161 Then G5376 Philip G2718 [G5631] went down G1519 to G4172 the city G4540 of Samaria G2784 [G5707] , and preached G5547 Christ G846 to them.
6 G5037 And G3793 the people G3661 with one accord G4337 [G5707] gave heed G5376 to those things which Philip G3004 G5259 [G5746] spoke G1722 G191 G846 [G5721] , hearing G2532 and G991 [G5721] seeing G4592 the miracles G3739 which G4160 [G5707] he was performing.
7 G1063 For G169 unclean G4151 spirits G994 [G5723] , crying G3173 with loud G5456 voice G1831 [G5711] , came out G4183 of many G2192 [G5723] that were possessed G1161 and G4183 many G3886 [G5772] sick with palsies G2532 , and G5560 that were lame G2323 [G5681] , were healed.
9 G1161 But G5100 there was a certain G435 man G3686 , called G4613 Simon G4391 [G5707] , who before G1722 in G4172 the same city G3096 [G5723] used sorcery G2532 , and G1839 [G5723] bewitched G1484 the people G4540 of Samaria G3004 [G5723] , saying G1438 that he G1511 [G5750] was G5100 some G3173 great person:
10 G3739 To whom G3956 they all G4337 [G5707] gave heed G575 , from G3398 the least G2193 to G3173 the greatest G3004 [G5723] , saying G3778 , This man G2076 [G5748] is G3173 the great G1411 power G2316 of God.
11 G1161 And G846 to him G4337 [G5707] they had regard G1223 , because G2425 that for a long G5550 time G1839 [G5760] he had bewitched G846 them G3095 with sorceries.
12 G1161 But G3753 when G4100 [G5656] they believed G5376 Philip G2097 [G5734] preaching G4012 the things concerning G932 the kingdom G2316 of God G2532 , and G3686 the name G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G907 [G5712] , they were baptized G5037 , both G435 men G2532 and G1135 women.
13 G1161 Then G4613 Simon G846 himself G4100 [G5656] believed G2532 also G2532 : and G907 [G5685] when he was baptized G2258 G4342 [G5713] , he continued G5376 with Philip G5037 , and G1839 [G5710] was amazed G2334 [G5723] , beholding G1411 the miracles G2532 and G4592 G3173 signs G1096 G1096 [G5740] which were done.
14 G1161 Now G652 when the apostles G3588 who G1722 were at G2414 Jerusalem G191 [G5660] heard G3754 that G4540 Samaria G1209 [G5766] had received G3056 the word G2316 of God G649 [G5656] , they sent G4314 to G846 them G4074 Peter G2532 and G2491 John:
15 G3748 Who G2597 [G5631] , when they had come down G4336 [G5662] , prayed G4012 for G846 them G3704 , that G2983 [G5632] they might receive G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit:
16 G1063 (For G3768 as yet G2258 [G5713] he had G1968 [G5761] fallen G1909 upon G3762 none G846 of them G3440 G1161 : only G5225 [G5707] they were G907 [G5772] baptized G1519 in G3686 the name G2962 of the Lord G2424 Jesus.)
17 G5119 Then G2007 [G5707] they laid G5495 their hands G1909 on G846 them G2532 , and G2983 [G5707] they received G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit.
18 G1161 And G4613 when Simon G2300 [G5666] saw G3754 that G1223 through G1936 laying on G652 of the apostles G5495 ' hands G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit G1325 [G5743] was given G4374 [G5656] , he offered G846 them G5536 money,
19 G3004 [G5723] Saying G1325 [G5628] , Give G2504 me also G5026 this G1849 power G2443 , that G2007 0 on G3739 G1437 whomever G2007 [G5632] I lay G5495 hands G2983 [G5725] , he may receive G40 the Holy G4151 Spirit.
20 G1161 But G4074 Peter G2036 [G5627] said G4314 to G846 him G4675 , Thy G694 money G1498 G1519 G684 [G5751] perish G4862 with G4671 thee G3754 , because G3543 [G5656] thou hast thought G1431 that the gift G2316 of God G2932 [G5738] may be acquired G1223 with G5536 money.
21 G4671 Thou G2076 [G5748] hast G3756 neither G3310 part G3761 nor G2819 lot G1722 in G5129 this G3056 matter G1063 : for G4675 thy G2588 heart G2076 [G5748] is G3756 not G2117 right G1799 in the sight G2316 of God.
22 G3340 [G5657] Change thy mind G3767 therefore G575 from G5026 this G4675 thy G2549 wickedness G2532 , and G1189 [G5676] petition G2316 God G1487 , if G686 perhaps G1963 the thought G4675 of thy G2588 heart G863 [G5701] may be forgiven G4671 thee.
23 G1063 For G3708 [G5719] I perceive G4571 that thou G5607 [G5752] art G1519 in G5521 the gall G4088 of bitterness G2532 , and G4886 in the bond G93 of iniquity.
24 G1161 Then G611 [G5679] answered G4613 Simon G2036 [G5627] , and said G1189 [G5676] , Pray G5210 ye G4314 to G2962 the Lord G5228 for G1700 me G3704 , that G3367 none of these things G3739 which G2046 [G5758] ye have spoken G1904 [G5632] come G1909 upon G1691 me.
25 G3303 G3767 And they, when G1263 [G5666] they had testified G2532 and G2980 [G5660] preached G3056 the word G2962 of the Lord G5290 [G5656] , returned G1519 to G2419 Jerusalem G5037 , and G2097 [G5668] preached the gospel G4183 in many G2968 villages G4541 of the Samaritans.
26 G1161 And G32 the angel G2962 of the Lord G2980 [G5656] spoke G4314 to G5376 Philip G3004 [G5723] , saying G450 [G5628] , Arise G2532 , and G4198 [G5737] go G2596 toward G3314 the south G1909 to G3598 the way G2597 [G5723] that goeth down G575 from G2419 Jerusalem G1519 to G1048 Gaza G3778 , which G2076 [G5748] is G2048 desert.
27 G2532 And G450 [G5631] he arose G4198 [G5675] and went G2532 : and G2400 [G5628] , behold G435 , a man G128 of Ethiopia G2135 , an eunuch G1413 of great authority G2582 under Candace G938 queen G128 of the Ethiopians G3739 , who G2258 [G5713] had G1909 the charge of G3956 all G846 her G1047 treasure G3739 , and G2064 [G5715] had come G1519 to G2419 Jerusalem G4352 [G5694] to worship,
28 G5037 G2258 [G5713] Was G5290 [G5723] returning G2532 , and G2521 [G5740] sitting G1909 in G846 his G716 G2532 chariot G314 [G5707] read G2268 Isaiah G4396 the prophet.
29 G1161 Then G4151 the Spirit G2036 [G5627] said G5376 to Philip G4334 [G5628] , Go near G2532 , and G2853 [G5682] join thyself to G5129 this G716 chariot.
30 G1161 And G5376 Philip G4370 [G5631] ran G191 [G5656] to him, and heard G846 him G314 [G5723] reading G4396 the prophet G2268 Isaiah G2532 , and G2036 [G5627] said G687 G1065 G1097 [G5719] , Understandest thou G3739 what G314 [G5719] thou readest?
31 G1161 And G2036 [G5627] he said G1063 G4459 , How G302 G1410 [G5739] can I G3362 , except G5100 some man G3594 [G5661] should guide G3165 me G5037 ? And G3870 [G5656] he besought G5376 Philip G305 [G5631] that he would come up G2523 [G5658] and sit G4862 with G846 him.
32 G1161 G4042 The place G1124 of the scripture G3739 which G314 [G5707] he read G2258 [G5713] was G3778 this G71 [G5681] , He was led G5613 as G4263 a sheep G1909 to G4967 the slaughter G2532 ; and G5613 like G286 a lamb G880 dumb G1726 before G846 his G2751 [G5723] shearer G3779 , so G455 [G5719] he opened G3756 not G846 his G4750 mouth:
33 G1722 In G846 his G5014 humiliation G846 his G2920 judgment G142 [G5681] was taken away G1161 : and G5101 who G1334 [G5695] shall declare G846 his G1074 generation G3754 ? for G846 his G2222 life G142 [G5743] is taken G575 from G1093 the earth.
34 G1161 And G2135 the eunuch G611 [G5679] answered G5376 Philip G2036 [G5627] , and said G1189 [G5736] , I pray G4675 thee G4012 , of G5101 whom G3004 [G5719] speaketh G4396 the prophet G5124 this G4012 ? of G1438 himself G2228 , or G4012 of G5100 some G2087 other man?
35 G1161 Then G5376 Philip G455 [G5660] opened G846 his G4750 mouth G2532 , and G756 [G5671] began G575 at G5026 the same G1124 scripture G2097 [G5668] , and preached G846 to him G2424 Jesus.
36 G1161 And G5613 as G4198 [G5711] they went G2596 on G3598 their way G2064 [G5627] , they came G1909 to G5100 a certain G5204 water G2532 : and G2135 the eunuch G5346 [G5748] said G2400 [G5628] , See G5204 , here is water G5101 ; what G2967 [G5719] doth hinder G3165 me G907 [G5683] to be baptized?
37 G1161 And G5376 Philip G2036 [G5627] said G1487 , If G4100 [G5719] thou believest G1537 with G3650 all thy G2588 heart G1832 [G5748] , thou mayest G1161 . And G611 [G5679] he answered G2036 [G5627] and said G4100 [G5719] , I believe G2424 that Jesus G5547 Christ G1511 [G5750] is G5207 the Son G2316 of God.
38 G2532 And G2753 [G5656] he commanded G716 the chariot G2476 [G5629] to stand still G2532 : and G297 they both G2597 [G5627] went down G1519 into G5204 the water G5037 , both G5376 Philip G2532 and G2135 the eunuch G2532 ; and G907 [G5656] he baptized G846 him.
39 G1161 And G3753 when G305 [G5627] they had come up G1537 out of G5204 the water G4151 , the Spirit G2962 of the Lord G726 [G5656] caught away G5376 Philip G2532 , G2135 that the eunuch G1492 G3756 [G5627] saw G846 him G3765 no more G1063 : and G4198 [G5711] he went G846 on his G3598 way G5463 [G5723] rejoicing.
