An angel of the Lord spoke to Philip: "Get up and go south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to desert Gaza."a27
So he got up and went. There was an Ethiopian man, a eunuch and high official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to worship in Jerusalem
and was sitting in his chariot on his way home, reading the prophet Isaiah aloud.
The Spirit told Philip, "Go and join that chariot."
When Philip ran up to it, he heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you're reading?"
"How can I," he said, "unless someone guides me?" So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.
