Acts 8:18-24

18 Now when Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money,  19 saying, "Give me also this power, that whoever I lay my hands on may receive the Holy Spirit."  20 But Peter said to him, "May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money!  21 You have neither part nor lot in this matter, for your heart isn't right before God.  22 Repent therefore of this, your wickedness, and ask God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.  23 For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and in the bondage of iniquity."

24 Simon answered, "Pray for me to the Lord, that none of the things which you have spoken happen to me."
