THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Acts (Author Luke)

8:9But 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:

8:10To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.

8:11And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

8:12But 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.

8:13Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

8:18And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

8:19Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.

8:20But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

8:21Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

8:22Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

8:23For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.

8:24Then answered Simon, and said, Pray ye to the Lord for me, that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me.
