Acts Chapter Eight

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.
 
2: And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
 
3: As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.
 
4: Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.
 
5: Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.
 
6: And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
 
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.
 
8: And there was great joy in that city.
 
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:
 
10: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.
 
11: And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
 
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.
 
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.
 
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:
 
15: Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:
 
16: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)
 
17: Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
 
18: And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,
 
19: Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
 
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.
 
21: Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
 
22: Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
 
23: For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.
 
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.
 
25: And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Lord, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.
 
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.
 
27: And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
 
28: Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.
 
29: Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
 
30: And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
 
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.
 
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:
 
33: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.
 
34: And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
 
35: Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
 
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?
 
37: And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
 
38: And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
 
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.
 
40: But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.

Psalm Eighty Five

1:LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
 
2: Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
 
3: Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
 
4: Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
 
5: Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
 
6: Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
 
7: Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
 
8: I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
 
9: Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
 
10: Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
 
11: Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
 
12: Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
 
13: Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.

Deuteronomy Chapter Eleven

1:Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, always.
 
2: And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm,
 
3: And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;
 
4: And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow them as they pursued after you, and how the LORD hath destroyed them unto this day;
 
5: And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came into this place;
 
6: And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:
 
7: But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.
 
8: Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it;
 
9: And that ye may prolong your days in the land, which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that floweth with milk and honey.
 
10: For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:
 
11: But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
 
12: A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
 
13: And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
 
14: That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
 
15: And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.
 
16: Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
 
17: And then the LORD's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.
 
18: Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
 
19: And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
 
20: And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
 
21: That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
 
22: For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
 
23: Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.
 
24: Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be.
 
25: There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you.
 
26: Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
 
27: A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
 
28: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
 
29: And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God hath brought thee in unto the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal.
 
30: Are they not on the other side Jordan, by the way where the sun eth down, in the land of the Canaanites, which dwell in the champaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh?
 
31: For ye shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God giveth you, and ye shall possess it, and dwell therein.
 
32: And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you this day.

Deuteronomy Chapter Twelve

1:These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth.
 
2: Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:
 
3: And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.
 
4: Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God.
 
5: But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:
 
6: And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:
 
7: And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee.
 
8: Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.
 
9: For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which the LORD your God giveth you.
 
10: But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;
 
11: Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:
 
12: And ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Levite that is within your gates; forasmuch as he hath no part nor inheritance with you.
 
13: Take heed to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt offerings in every place that thou seest:
 
14: But in the place which the LORD shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee.
 
15: Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee: the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and as of the hart.
 
16: Only ye shall not eat the blood; ye shall pour it upon the earth as water.
 
17: Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand:
 
18: But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God in all that thou puttest thine hands unto.
 
19: Take heed to thyself that thou forsake not the Levite as long as thou livest upon the earth.
 
20: When the LORD thy God shall enlarge thy border, as he hath promised thee, and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, because thy soul longeth to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.
 
21: If the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to put his name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock, which the LORD hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after.
 
22: Even as the roebuck and the hart is eaten, so thou shalt eat them: the unclean and the clean shall eat of them alike.
 
23: Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh.
 
24: Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as water.
 
25: Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.
 
26: Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou shalt take, and go unto the place which the LORD shall choose:
 
27: And thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of the LORD thy God: and the blood of thy sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of the LORD thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh.
 
28: Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God.
 
29: When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;
 
30: Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou inquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
 
31: Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
 
32: What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
