JUB 1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the <em>congregation</em> {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones} which was at Jerusalem, and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. NIV 1 And Saul approved of their killing him. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. JUB 2 And devout men carried Stephen <em>to his burial</em> and made great lamentation over him. NIV 2 Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. JUB 3 As for Saul, he made havoc of the <em>congregation</em> {Gr. ekklesia – called out ones}; entering into the houses and dragging <em>out</em> men and women, he committed <em>them</em> to prison. NIV 3 But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison. JUB 4 But those that were scattered abroad went everywhere preaching the word of the gospel. NIV 4 Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. JUB 5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria and preached the Christ unto them. NIV 5 Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there. JUB 6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spoke, hearing and seeing the signs which he did. NIV 6 When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said. JUB 7 For many unclean spirits, crying with a loud voice, came out of those who were possessed <em>with them</em>, and many paralytics and that were lame were healed. NIV 7 For with shrieks, impure spirits came out of many, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. JUB 8 And there was great joy in that city. NIV 8 So there was great joy in that city. JUB 9 But there was a certain man called Simon, who before this in the same city used magic arts and amazed the people of Samaria, giving out that <em>he</em> himself was some great one, NIV 9 Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, JUB 10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This is the great virtue of God. NIV 10 and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” JUB 11 And to him they had regard because for a long time he had amazed them with magic arts. NIV 11 They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery. JUB 12 But when they believed Philip preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. NIV 12 But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. JUB 13 Then Simon himself believed also; and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were being done. NIV 13 Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw. JUB 14 Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John unto them, NIV 14 When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. JUB 15 who, when they were come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. NIV 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, JUB 16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them; they were baptized only in the name of the Lord Jesus.) NIV 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. JUB 17 Then they laid <em>their</em> hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. NIV 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. JUB 18 And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, NIV 18 When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money JUB 19 saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit. NIV 19 and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” JUB 20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. NIV 20 Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! JUB 21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter, for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. NIV 21 You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. JUB 22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness and pray God, if perhaps this thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. NIV 22 Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. JUB 23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness and <em>in</em> the prison of iniquity. NIV 23 For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.” JUB 24 Then Simon answered and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. NIV 24 Then Simon answered, “Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me.” JUB 25 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of God, returned to Jerusalem and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans. NIV 25 After they had further proclaimed the word of the Lord and testified about Jesus, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages. JUB 26 And the angel of the Lord spoke unto Philip, saying, Arise and go toward the south unto the way that goes down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. NIV 26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Go south to the road—the desert road—that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” JUB 27 Then he arose and went, and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure and had come to Jerusalem to worship, NIV 27 So he started out, and on his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch, an important official in charge of all the treasury of the Kandake (which means “queen of the Ethiopians”). This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, JUB 28 was returning and sitting in his chariot reading Isaiah the prophet. NIV 28 and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet. JUB 29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near and join thyself to this chariot. NIV 29 The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.” JUB 30 And Philip ran there to <em>him</em> and heard him read the prophet Isaiah and said, Dost thou understand what thou readest? NIV 30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. JUB 31 And he said, How can I, except someone should guide me? And he besought Philip to come up and sit with him. NIV 31 “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. JUB 32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter, and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth; NIV 32 This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading: “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth. JUB 33 in his humiliation his judgment was taken away, and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. NIV 33 In his humiliation he was deprived of justice. Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth.” JUB 34 And the eunuch answered Philip and said, I pray thee, of whom does the prophet speak this? of himself or of some other? NIV 34 The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” JUB 35 Then Philip opened his mouth and began at the same scripture and preached unto him the gospel of Jesus. NIV 35 Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus. JUB 36 And as they went on <em>their</em> way, they came unto a certain water; and the eunuch said, See, <em>here is</em> water; what hinders me to be baptized? NIV 36 As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized? ” JUB 37 And Philip said, If thou dost believe with all thine heart, thou may. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. JUB 38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still, and they went both down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. NIV 38 And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. JUB 39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, <em>so</em> that the eunuch saw him no more, and he went on his way rejoicing. NIV 39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. JUB 40 But Philip was found at Azotus, and passing through, he preached the gospel in all the cities until he came to Caesarea. NIV 40 Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.
