5. And when Philip came into the city of Samaria, he preached Christ to them. 6. And the multitude gave ear to those things which Philip spake, hearing with one consent, and seeing the signs which he showed.
7. For whereas many were possessed with unclean spirits, they came out, crying with a loud voice; and many that had the palsy,
and which were lame, were healed; 8. So that there was great joy in that city.
9. And a man, named Simon, had been before in the city, exercising the art magic, and bewitching the people of Samaria, saying
that he was some great man: 10. To whom they all gave heed, both small and great, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11. And they had given heed unto him, because they had been bewitched long time with his witchcraft. 12. But as soon as they believed Philip preaching concerning the kingdom of God, and in the name of Jesus Christ,
they were baptized, both men and women. 13. And Simon himself believed, and being baptized, did cleave to Philip; and when he saw the signs and great powers which were
done, he wondered.
