1 aSaul was in hearty agreement with putting him to death.
6 The crowds with one accord were giving attention to what was said by Philip, as they heard and saw the 1signs which he was performing.
8 So there was amuch rejoicing in that city.
10 and they all, from smallest to greatest, were giving attention to him, saying, “aThis man is what is called the Great Power of God.”
11 And they were giving him attention because he had for a long time astonished them with his amagic arts.
15 who came down and prayed for them athat they might receive the Holy Spirit.
20 But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could aobtain the gift of God with money!
22 “Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray the Lord that, aif possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you.
24 But Simon answered and said, “aPray to the Lord for me yourselves, so that nothing of what you have said may come upon me.”
28 and he was returning and sitting in his 1chariot, and was reading the prophet Isaiah.
“aHe was led as a sheep to slaughter;
And as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
So He does not open His mouth.
33 “aIn humiliation His judgment was taken away;
For His life is removed from the earth.”
37 [1And Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”]
38 And he ordered the 1chariot to stop; and they both went down into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch, and he baptized him.
