Acts 8:27–39

27 And he arose and went: and, behold, ta man of Ethiopia, uan eunuch wof great authority under Candace queen of the xEthiopians, who had ythe charge of all her treasure, and zhad come to Jerusalem for to worship, 28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. 29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, aUnderstandest thou what thou readest? 31 And he said, How can I, except some man should bguide me? And che desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. 32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, dHe was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: 33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. 34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? 35 Then Philip eopened his mouth, and fbegan at the same gscripture, and hpreached unto him Jesus. 36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth ihinder me to be baptized? 37 And Philip said, jIf thou believest with all thine heart, kthou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that lJesus Christ is mthe Son of God. 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. 39 And when they were come up out of the water, nthe Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way orejoicing.
