26 But 1an angel of the Lord spoke to 2Philip saying, "Get up and go south to the road that descends from Jerusalem to 3Gaza." (This is a desert road. )
27 So he got up and went; and 4there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure; and he 5had come to Jerusalem to worship,
28 and he was returning and sitting in his chariot, and was reading the prophet Isaiah.
29 Then 6the Spirit said to Philip, "Go up and join this chariot."
30 Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?"
31 And he said, "Well, how could I, unless * someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.
