But when the apostles that were at Jerusalem, had heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John.
And when they came, they prayed for them [The which, when they came, prayed for them], that they should receive the Holy Ghost;
for he came not yet into any of them [forsooth not yet he came into any of them], but they were baptized only in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
And when Simon had seen, that the Holy Ghost was given by laying on of [the] hands of the apostles, and he proffered to them money [he offered to them money],
and said, Give ye also to me this power, that [to] whomever I shall lay on mine hands, that he receive the Holy Ghost. [saying, Give to me and this power, that on whomever I shall put on hands, he receive the Holy Ghost.]
But Peter said to him, Thy money be with thee into perdition, for thou guessedest that the gift of God should be had for money [for thou guessedest the gift of God for to be had with money].
There is no part, nor lot to thee [Part is not to thee, neither sort], in this word, for thine heart is not rightful before God.
Therefore do thou penance for this wickedness of thee, and pray God, if peradventure this thought of thine heart be forgiven to thee.
For I see that thou art in the gall of bitterness and in the bond of wickedness.
And Simon answered, and said, Pray ye for me to the Lord, that nothing of these things that ye have said, come on me.
