CJB 8 so that there was great joy in that city. NIV 8 So there was great joy in that city. CJB 9 But there was a man named Shim'on in the city who for some time had been practicing magic and astonishing the nation of Shomron, claiming to be somebody great. 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, CJB 10 Everyone gave heed to him, from the lowest to the highest, saying, "This man is the power of God called 'The Great Power'." 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.” CJB 11 They followed him because for a considerable time he had amazed them with his magic. NIV 11 They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery.

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. CJB 13 Moreover, Shim'on himself came to believe; and after being immersed, he attached himself closely to Philip; and he was amazed as he saw the miraculous signs and great works of power that kept taking place. NIV 13 Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw. CJB 14 When the emissaries in Yerushalayim heard that Shomron had received the Word of God, they sent them Kefa and Yochanan, NIV 14 When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria.

NIV 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, CJB 16 For until then he had not come upon any of them; they had only been immersed into the name of the Lord Yeshua. 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. CJB 17 Then, as Kefa and Yochanan placed their hands on them, they received the Ruach HaKodesh. NIV 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. CJB 18 Shim'on saw that the Spirit was given when the emissaries placed their hands on them, and he offered them money.

NIV 19 and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” CJB 20 But Kefa said to him, "Your silver go to ruin - and you with it, for thinking the free gift of God can be bought! NIV 20 Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! CJB 21 You have no part at all in this matter; because in the eyes of God, your heart is crooked. NIV 21 You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. CJB 22 So repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord. Perhaps you will yet be forgiven for holding such a thought in your heart. 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. CJB 23 For I see that you are extremely bitter and completely under the control of sin!" NIV 23 For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.” CJB 24 Shim'on answered, "Pray to the Lord for me, so that none of the things you have spoken about will happen to me." NIV 24 Then Simon answered, “Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me.” CJB 25 Then, after giving a thorough witness and speaking the Word of the Lord, Kefa and Yochanan started back to Yerushalayim, announcing the Good News to many villages in Shomron. 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.
