Bible: Acts 8:14-20
8:14 Now when the apostles in Jerusalem 1 heard that Samaria had accepted the word 2 of God, they sent 3 Peter and John to them. 8:15 These two 4 went down and prayed for them so that they would receive the Holy Spirit. 8:16 (For the Spirit 5 had not yet come upon 6 any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 7 8:17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on the Samaritans, 8 and they received the Holy Spirit. 9
8:18 Now Simon, when he saw that the Spirit 10 was given through the laying on of the apostles’ hands, offered them money, 8:19 saying, “Give me this power 11 too, so that everyone I place my hands on may receive the Holy Spirit.” 8:20 But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, 12 because you thought you could acquire 13 God’s gift with money!
