Acts 8:26-40

GNT 26 An angel of the Lord said to Philip, "Get ready and go south to the road that goes from Jerusalem to Gaza." (This road is not used nowadays.) 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.” GNT 27 So Philip got ready and went. Now an Ethiopian eunuch, who was an important official in charge of the treasury of the queen of Ethiopia, was on his way home. He had been to Jerusalem to worship God and was going back home in his carriage. As he rode along, he was reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah. 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, GNT 29 The Holy Spirit said to Philip, "Go over to that carriage and stay close to it." NIV 29 The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.” GNT 30 Philip ran over and heard him reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah. He asked him, "Do you understand what you are reading?" 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. GNT 31 The official replied, "How can I understand unless someone explains it to me?" And he invited Philip to climb up and sit in the carriage 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. GNT 32 The passage of scripture which he was reading was this: "He was like a sheep that is taken to be slaughtered, like a lamb that makes no sound when its wool is cut off. He did not say a word. 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. GNT 33 He was humiliated, and justice was denied him. No one will be able to tell about his descendants, because his life on earth has come to an end." NIV 33 In his humiliation he was deprived of justice. Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth.” GNT 34 The official asked Philip, "Tell me, of whom is the prophet saying this? Of himself or of someone else?" NIV 34 The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” GNT 35 Then Philip began to speak; starting from this passage of scripture, he told him the Good News about Jesus. NIV 35 Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus. GNT 36 As they traveled down the road, they came to a place where there was some water, and the official said, "Here is some water. What is to keep me from being 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? ” GNT 38 The official ordered the carriage to stop, and both Philip and the official went down into the water, and Philip 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. GNT 39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord took Philip away. The official did not see him again, but continued on his way, full of joy. 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. GNT 40 Philip found himself in Azotus; he went on to Caesarea, and on the way he preached the Good News in every town. NIV 40 Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.
