Chapter 8 - Acts

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.1 At si Saulo ay sumangayon sa kaniyang pagkamatay. At nang araw na yao'y nangyari ang isang malaking paguusig laban sa iglesia na nasa Jerusalem; at silang lahat ay nagsipangalat sa lahat ng mga dako ng Judea at Samaria, maliban na sa mga apostol.
2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.2 At inilibing si Esteban ng mga taong masipag sa kabanalan, at siya'y tinangisan ng di kawasa.
3 As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.3 Datapuwa't pinuksa ni Saulo ang iglesia, na pinapasok ang bahay-bahay, at kinakaladkad ang mga lalake't mga babae, at sila'y ipinapasok sa bilangguan.
4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.4 Ang mga nagsipangalat nga ay nagsipaglakbay, na ipinangangaral ang salita.
5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.5 At bumaba si Felipe sa bayan ng Samaria, at ipinangaral sa kanila ang Cristo.
6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.6 At ang mga karamiha'y nangagkakaisang nangakikinig sa mga bagay na sinasalita ni Felipe, pagkarinig nila, at pagkakita ng mga tanda na ginawa niya.
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.7 Sapagka't sa maraming may mga karumaldumal na espiritu, ay nangagsilabas sila, na nangagsisisigaw ng malakas na tinig: at maraming lumpo, at pilay, ang pinagaling.
8 And there was great joy in that city.8 At nagkaroon ng malaking kagalakan sa bayang yaon.
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:9 Datapuwa't may isang tao, na nagngangalang Simon, na nang unang panaho'y nanggagaway sa bayan, at pinahahanga ang mga tao sa Samaria, at nagsasabing siya'y isang dakila:
10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.10 Na siyang pinakikinggan nilang lahat, buhat sa kaliitliitan hanggang sa kadakidakilaan, na sinasabi, Ang taong ito ang siyang kapangyarihan ng Dios na tinatawag na Dakila.
11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.11 At siya'y pinakinggan nila, sapagka't mahabang panahong pinahahanga niya sila ng kaniyang mga panggagaway.
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.12 Datapuwa't nang magsipaniwala sila kay Felipe na nangangaral ng mabubuting balita tungkol sa kaharian ng Dios at sa pangalan ni Jesucristo, ay nangabautismuhan ang mga lalake't mga babae.
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.13 At si Simon man ay naniwala rin: at nang mabautismuhan na, ay nanatili siyang kasama ni Felipe; at nang makakita ng mga tanda at ng mga dakilang himalang ginawa, ay napahanga siya.
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:14 Nang mabalitaan nga ng mga apostol na nangasa Jerusalem na tinanggap ng Samaria ang salita ng Dios, ay sinugo nila sa kanila si Pedro at si Juan:
15 Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:15 Na nang sila'y makalusong, ay ipinanalangin nila sila, upang kanilang tanggapin ang Espiritu Santo.
16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)16 Sapagka't ito'y hindi pa bumababa sa kanino man sa kanila: kundi sila'y nangabautismuhan lamang sa pangalan ng Panginoong Jesus.
17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.17 Nang magkagayo'y ipinatong sa kanila ang kanilang mga kamay, at kanilang tinanggap ang Espiritu Santo.
18 And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,18 Nang makita nga ni Simon na sa pamamagitan ng pagpapatong ng mga kamay ng mga apostol ay ibinigay ang Espiritu Santo, ay inalok niya sila ng salapi,
19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.19 Na sinasabi, Bigyan naman ninyo ako ng kapangyarihang ito, upang sinomang patungan ko ng aking mga kamay, ay tumanggap ng Espiritu Santo.
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.20 Datapuwa't sinabi sa kaniya ni Pedro, Ang iyong salapi'y mapahamak na kasama mo, sapagka't inisip mong tamuhin ang kaloob ng Dios sa pamamagitan ng salapi.
21 Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.21 Wala kang bahagi ni kapalaran man sa bagay na ito: sapagka't ang puso mo'y hindi matuwid sa harap ng Dios.
22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.22 Magsisi ka nga sa kasamaan mong ito, at manalangin ka sa Panginoon, baka sakaling ipatawad sa iyo ang pagiisip ng iyong puso.
23 For I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity.23 Sapagka't nakikita kong ikaw ay nasa apdo ng kapaitan at sa tali ng katampalasanan.
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.24 At sumagot si Simon at sinabi, Ipanalangin ninyo ako sa Panginoon, upang huwag mangyari sa akin ang alin mang bagay sa mga sinasabi ninyo.
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.25 Sila nga, nang makapagpatotoo at masabi na nila ang salita ng Panginoon, ay nangagbalik sa Jerusalem, at ipinangaral ang evangelio sa maraming nayon ng mga Samaritano.
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.26 Datapuwa't nagsalita kay Felipe ang isang anghel ng Panginoon, na nagsasabi, Magtindig ka, at ikaw ay pumaroon sa dakong timugan, sa daang palusong mula sa Jerusalem hanggang sa Gaza: na ito'y ilang.
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,27 At siya'y nagtindig at yumaon: at narito, ang isang lalaking taga Etiopia, isang bating na may dakilang kapamahalaan na sakop ni Candace, reina ng mga Etiope, na siyang namamahala ng lahat niyang kayamanan, at siya'y naparoon sa Jerusalem upang sumamba;
28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.28 At siya'y pabalik at nakaupo sa kaniyang karo, at binabasa ang propeta Isaias.
29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.29 At sinabi kay Felipe ng Espiritu, Lumapit ka, at makisama sa karong ito.
30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?30 At tumakbo si Felipeng patungo sa kaniya, at napakinggan niyang binabasa si Isaias na propeta, at sinabi, Nauunawa mo baga ang binabasa mo?
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.31 At sinabi niya, Paanong magagawa ko, maliban nang may pumatnubay sa aking sinoman? At pinakiusapan niya si Felipe na pumanhik at maupong kasama niya.
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:32 Ang dako nga ng kasulatan na binabasa niya ay ito, Siya'y gaya ng tupa na dinala sa patayan; At kung paanong hindi umimik ang kordero sa harap ng manggugupit sa kaniya, Gayon din hindi niya binubuka ang kaniyang bibig:
33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.33 Sa kaniyang pagpapakababa'y inalis ang kaniyang paghuhukom. Sino ang maghahayag ng kaniyang lahi? Sapagka't inalis sa lupa ang kaniyang buhay.
34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?34 At sumagot ang bating kay Felipe, at sinabi, Ipinamamanhik ko sa iyo, kanino sinasabi ng propeta ito? sa kaniya bagang sarili, o sa alin mang iba?
35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.35 At binuka ni Felipe ang kaniyang bibig, at pagpapasimula sa kasulatang ito, ay ipinangaral sa kaniya si 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?36 At sa pagpapatuloy sa daan, ay nagsidating sila sa dakong may tubig; at sinabi ng bating, Narito, ang tubig; ano ang nakahahadlang upang ako'y mabautismuhan?
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.37 At sinabi ni Felipe Kung nanampalataya ka ng buong puso ay mangyayari. At sumagot siya at sinabi: Sumasampalataya ako na si Jesu-Cristo ay Anak ng Dios.
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.38 At ipinagutos niyang itigil ang karo: at sila'y kapuwa lumusong sa tubig, si Felipe at ang bating; at kaniyang binautismuhan siya.
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.39 At nang magsiahon sila sa tubig, ay inagaw si Felipe ng Espiritu ng Panginoon; at hindi na siya nakita ng bating, sapagka't ipinagpatuloy niya ang kaniyang lakad na natutuwa.
40 But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.40 Nguni't nasumpungan si Felipe sa Azoto: at sa pagdadaan ay ipinangaral niya ang evangelio sa lahat ng mga bayan, hanggang sa dumating siya sa Cesarea.
