nkjv@Acts:8:26 @ Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." This is desert.
nkjv@Acts:8:27 @ So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship,
nkjv@Acts:8:28 @ was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet.
nkjv@Acts:8:29 @ Then the Spirit said to Philip, "Go near and overtake this chariot."
nkjv@Acts:8:30 @ So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?"
nkjv@Acts:8:31 @ And he said, "How can I, unless someone guides me?" And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.
nkjv@Acts:8:32 @ The place in the Scripture which he read was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
nkjv@Acts:8:33 @ In His humiliation His justice was taken away, And who will declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth."
nkjv@Acts:8:34 @ So the eunuch answered Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?"
nkjv@Acts:8:35 @ Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.
nkjv@Acts:8:36 @ Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?"
nkjv@Acts:8:37 @ Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."
nkjv@Acts:8:38 @ So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.
nkjv@Acts:8:39 @ Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.
nkjv@Acts:8:40 @ But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.
