26 Then an angel of the Lord said to Philip, Get up and go towards the south* to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza. (This is a wilderness road.) 27So he got up and went. Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of the Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to Jerusalem to worship 28and was returning home; seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29Then the Spirit said to Philip, Go over to this chariot and join it. 30So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah. He asked, Do you understand what you are reading? 31He replied, How can I, unless someone guides me? And he invited Philip to get in and sit beside him.
