The Holy Bible

Acts Chapter 8   
   King James Version

     1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   2 And devout men carried Stephen [to his burial], and made great lamentation over him. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed [them] to prison. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed [with them]: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. [tsk]   8 And there was great joy in that city. [jfb] [tsk]   9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. [tsk]   12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) [tsk]   17 Then laid they [their] hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. [pnt] [tsk]   18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. [jfb] [tsk]   20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. [gsn] [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and [in] the bond of iniquity. [gsn] [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   25 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans. [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. [gsn] [mhcc] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   30 And Philip ran thither to [him], and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [tsk]   32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: [gsn] [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. [gsn] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. [jfb] [pnt] [tsk]   36 And as they went on [their] way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, [here is] water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. [gsn] [pnt] [tsk]   38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]   40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea. [jfb] [jwc] [pnt] [tsk]
