5 Philip went down to a city of Sama'ria, and proclaimed to them the Christ.
6 And the multitudes with one accord gave heed to what was said by Philip, when they heard him and saw the signs which he did.
7 For unclean spirits came out of many who were possessed, crying with a loud voice; and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed.
8 So there was much joy in that city.
14 Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Sama'ria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John,
15 who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit;
16 for it had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
17 Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.
|Psalms 66: 1 - 7, 16, 20|
|1||Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;|
|2||sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise!|
|3||Say to God, "How terrible are thy deeds! So great is thy power that thy enemies cringe before thee.|
|4||All the earth worships thee; they sing praises to thee, sing praises to thy name." [Selah]|
|5||Come and see what God has done: he is terrible in his deeds among men.|
|6||He turned the sea into dry land; men passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him,|
|7||who rules by his might for ever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations -- let not the rebellious exalt themselves. [Selah]|
|16||Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me.|
|20||Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!|
