Now in these days, when the disciples were being multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecian Jews against the Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily ministration. And the twelve, having called the multitude of the disciples to them, said, "It is not proper that we, leaving the word of God, should serve tables; read more. but look ye out, brethren, from among yourselves, seven well-attested men, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint over this business; but we will devote ourselves steadfastly to prayer and to the ministry of the word." And the saying was pleasing to the multitude; and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte of Antioch; whom they set before the apostles; and, having prayed, they laid their hands on them.

But he said, "How, in fact, were I able, unless some one should guide me?" And he besought Philip, having come up, to sit with him. Now the passage of the Scripture which he was reading was this: "He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and, as a lamb dumb before its shearer, so He openeth not His mouth. In His humiliation, His judgment was taken away; His generation who shall declare? because His life is being taken away from the earth." And the eunuch, answering Philip, said, "I pray you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself, or of someone else?" And Philip, opening his mouth, and, beginning from this Scripture, proclaimed to him the good news of Jesus. And, as they were journeying along the way, they came to a certain water; and the eunuch says, "Behold, here is water; what hinders me from being immersed?"
