Day - 318 - Acts 8-9
Act 8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. Act 8:1 Saul was in hearty agreement with putting him to death. And on that day a great persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. Act|8|1|σαῦλος δὲ ἦν συνευδοκῶν τῇ ἀναιρέσει αὐτοῦ. ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ διωγμὸς μέγας ἐπὶ τὴν ἐκκλησίαν τὴν ἐν ἱεροσολύμοις· πάντες δὲ διεσπάρησαν κατὰ τὰς χώρας τῆς ἰουδαίας καὶ σαμαρείας πλὴν τῶν ἀποστόλων.
Act 8:2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. Act 8:2 Some devout men buried Stephen, and made loud lamentation over him. Act|8|2|συνεκόμισαν δὲ τὸν στέφανον ἄνδρες εὐλαβεῖς καὶ ἐποίησαν κοπετὸν μέγαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶ.
Act 8:3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. Act 8:3 But Saul began ravaging the church, entering house after house, and dragging off men and women, he would put them in prison. Act|8|3|σαῦλος δὲ ἐλυμαίνετο τὴν ἐκκλησίαν κατὰ τοὺς οἴκους εἰσπορευόμενος, σύρων τε ἄνδρας καὶ γυναῖκας παρεδίδου εἰς φυλακήν.
Act 8:4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. Act 8:4 Therefore, those who had been scattered went about preaching the word. Act|8|4|οἱ μὲν οὗν διασπαρέντες διῆλθον εὐαγγελιζόμενοι τὸν λόγον.
Act 8:5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. Act 8:5 Philip went down to the city of Samaria and began proclaiming Christ to them. Act|8|5|φίλιππος δὲ κατελθὼν εἰς [τὴν] πόλιν τῆς σαμαρείας ἐκήρυσσεν αὐτοῖς τὸν χριστόν.
Act 8:6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. Act 8:6 The crowds with one accord were giving attention to what was said by Philip, as they heard and saw the signs which he was performing. Act|8|6|προσεῖχον δὲ οἱ ὄχλοι τοῖς λεγομένοις ὑπὸ τοῦ φιλίππου ὁμοθυμαδὸν ἐν τῶ ἀκούειν αὐτοὺς καὶ βλέπειν τὰ σημεῖα ἃ ἐποίει·
Act 8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. Act 8:7 For in the case of many who had unclean spirits, they were coming out of them shouting with a loud voice; and many who had been paralyzed and lame were healed. Act|8|7|πολλοὶ γὰρ τῶν ἐχόντων πνεύματα ἀκάθαρτα βοῶντα φωνῇ μεγάλῃ ἐξήρχοντο, πολλοὶ δὲ παραλελυμένοι καὶ χωλοὶ ἐθεραπεύθησαν·
Act 8:8 And there was great joy in that city. Act 8:8 So there was much rejoicing in that city. Act|8|8|ἐγένετο δὲ πολλὴ χαρὰ ἐν τῇ πόλει ἐκείνῃ.
Act 8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: Act 8:9 Now there was a man named Simon, who formerly was practicing magic in the city and astonishing the people of Samaria, claiming to be someone great; Act|8|9|ἀνὴρ δέ τις ὀνόματι σίμων προϊπῆρχεν ἐν τῇ πόλει μαγεύων καὶ ἐξιστάνων τὸ ἔθνος τῆς σαμαρείας, λέγων εἶναί τινα ἑαυτὸν μέγαν,
Act 8:10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. Act 8:10 and they all, from smallest to greatest, were giving attention to him, saying," This man is what is called the Great Power of God." Act|8|10|ᾧ προσεῖχον πάντες ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου λέγοντες, οὖτός ἐστιν ἡ δύναμις τοῦ θεοῦ ἡ καλουμένη μεγάλη.
Act 8:11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. Act 8:11 And they were giving him attention because he had for a long time astonished them with his magic arts. Act|8|11|προσεῖχον δὲ αὐτῶ διὰ τὸ ἱκανῶ χρόνῳ ταῖς μαγείαις ἐξεστακέναι αὐτούς.
Act 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

Act|8|12|ὅτε δὲ ἐπίστευσαν τῶ φιλίππῳ εὐαγγελιζομένῳ περὶ τῆς βασιλείας τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ ὀνόματος ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ, ἐβαπτίζοντο ἄνδρες τε καὶ γυναῖκες.
Act 8:13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done. Act 8:13 Even Simon himself believed; and after being baptized, he continued on with Philip, and as he observed signs and great miracles taking place, he was constantly amazed. Act|8|13|ὁ δὲ σίμων καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπίστευσεν, καὶ βαπτισθεὶς ἦν προσκαρτερῶν τῶ φιλίππῳ, θεωρῶν τε σημεῖα καὶ δυνάμεις μεγάλας γινομένας ἐξίστατο.
Act 8:14 Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: Act 8:14 Now when the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent them Peter and John, Act|8|14|ἀκούσαντες δὲ οἱ ἐν ἱεροσολύμοις ἀπόστολοι ὅτι δέδεκται ἡ σαμάρεια τὸν λόγον τοῦ θεοῦ ἀπέστειλαν πρὸς αὐτοὺς πέτρον καὶ ἰωάννην,
Act 8:15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: Act 8:15 who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit. Act|8|15|οἵτινες καταβάντες προσηύξαντο περὶ αὐτῶν ὅπως λάβωσιν πνεῦμα ἅγιον·
Act 8:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Act 8:16 For He had not yet fallen upon any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Act|8|16|οὐδέπω γὰρ ἦν ἐπ᾽ οὐδενὶ αὐτῶν ἐπιπεπτωκός, μόνον δὲ βεβαπτισμένοι ὑπῆρχον εἰς τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ κυρίου ἰησοῦ.
Act 8:17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. Act 8:17 Then they began laying their hands on them, and they were receiving the Holy Spirit. Act|8|17|τότε ἐπετίθεσαν τὰς χεῖρας ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς, καὶ ἐλάμβανον πνεῦμα ἅγιον.
Act 8:18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Act 8:18 Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was bestowed through the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money, Act|8|18|ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ σίμων ὅτι διὰ τῆς ἐπιθέσεως τῶν χειρῶν τῶν ἀποστόλων δίδοται τὸ πνεῦμα, προσήνεγκεν αὐτοῖς χρήματα
Act 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

Act 8:20 But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Act 8:20 But Peter said to him," May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! Act|8|20|πέτρος δὲ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν, τὸ ἀργύριόν σου σὺν σοὶ εἴη εἰς ἀπώλειαν, ὅτι τὴν δωρεὰν τοῦ θεοῦ ἐνόμισας διὰ χρημάτων κτᾶσθαι.
Act 8:21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Act 8:21 You have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Act|8|21|οὐκ ἔστιν σοι μερὶς οὐδὲ κλῆρος ἐν τῶ λόγῳ τούτῳ, ἡ γὰρ καρδία σου οὐκ ἔστιν εὐθεῖα ἔναντι τοῦ θεοῦ.
Act 8:22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee. Act 8:22 Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray the Lord that, if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you. Act|8|22|μετανόησον οὗν ἀπὸ τῆς κακίας σου ταύτης, καὶ δεήθητι τοῦ κυρίου εἰ ἄρα ἀφεθήσεταί σοι ἡ ἐπίνοια τῆς καρδίας σου·
Act 8:23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity. Act 8:23 For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bondage of iniquity." Act|8|23|εἰς γὰρ χολὴν πικρίας καὶ σύνδεσμον ἀδικίας ὁρῶ σε ὄντα.
Act 8:24 Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the LORD for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. Act 8:24 But Simon answered and said," Pray to the Lord for me yourselves, so that nothing of what you have said may come upon me." Act|8|24|ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ σίμων εἶπεν, δεήθητε ὑμεῖς ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ πρὸς τὸν κύριον ὅπως μηδὲν ἐπέλθῃ ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ ὧν εἰρήκατε.

Act 8:25 So, when they had solemnly testified and spoken the word of the Lord, they started back to Jerusalem, and were preaching the gospel to many villages of the Samaritans. Act|8|25|οἱ μὲν οὗν διαμαρτυράμενοι καὶ λαλήσαντες τὸν λόγον τοῦ κυρίου ὑπέστρεφον εἰς ἱεροσόλυμα, πολλάς τε κώμας τῶν σαμαριτῶν εὐηγγελίζοντο.
Act 8:26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. Act 8:26 But an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip saying," Get up and go south to the road that descends from Jerusalem to Gaza." ( This is a desert road. ) Act|8|26|ἄγγελος δὲ κυρίου ἐλάλησεν πρὸς φίλιππον λέγων, ἀνάστηθι καὶ πορεύου κατὰ μεσημβρίαν ἐπὶ τὴν ὁδὸν τὴν καταβαίνουσαν ἀπὸ ἰερουσαλὴμ εἰς γάζαν· αὕτη ἐστὶν ἔρημος.

Act 8:30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

Act|8|30|προσδραμὼν δὲ ὁ φίλιππος ἤκουσεν αὐτοῦ ἀναγινώσκοντος ἠσαΐαν τὸν προφήτην, καὶ εἶπεν, ἆρά γε γινώσκεις ἃ ἀναγινώσκεις;
Act 8:31 And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. Act 8:31 And he said," Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Act|8|31|ὁ δὲ εἶπεν, πῶς γὰρ ἂν δυναίμην ἐὰν μή τις ὁδηγήσει με; παρεκάλεσέν τε τὸν φίλιππον ἀναβάντα καθίσαι σὺν αὐτῶ.
Act 8:32 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: Act 8:32 Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this:" He was led as a sheep to slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He does not open His mouth. Act|8|32|ἡ δὲ περιοχὴ τῆς γραφῆς ἣν ἀνεγίνωσκεν ἦν αὕτη· ὡς πρόβατον ἐπὶ σφαγὴν ἤχθη, καὶ ὡς ἀμνὸς ἐναντίον τοῦ κείραντος αὐτὸν ἄφωνος, οὕτως οὐκ ἀνοίγει τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ.
Act 8:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

Act|8|34|ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ εὐνοῦχος τῶ φιλίππῳ εἶπεν, δέομαί σου, περὶ τίνος ὁ προφήτης λέγει τοῦτο; περὶ ἑαυτοῦ ἢ περὶ ἑτέρου τινός;

Act|8|35|ἀνοίξας δὲ ὁ φίλιππος τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀρξάμενος ἀπὸ τῆς γραφῆς ταύτης εὐηγγελίσατο αὐτῶ τὸν ἰησοῦν.
Act 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? Act 8:36 As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch *said," Look! Water! What prevents me from being baptized?" Act|8|36|ὡς δὲ ἐπορεύοντο κατὰ τὴν ὁδόν, ἦλθον ἐπί τι ὕδωρ, καί φησιν ὁ εὐνοῦχος, ἰδοὺ ὕδωρ· τί κωλύει με βαπτισθῆναι;

Act 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing. Act 8:39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, but went on his way rejoicing. Act|8|39|ὅτε δὲ ἀνέβησαν ἐκ τοῦ ὕδατος, πνεῦμα κυρίου ἥρπασεν τὸν φίλιππον, καὶ οὐκ εἶδεν αὐτὸν οὐκέτι ὁ εὐνοῦχος· ἐπορεύετο γὰρ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ χαίρων.
