(D)What prevents me from being baptized?”[a] 38 And he ordered that the [b]chariot stop; and they both went down into the water, Philip as well as the eunuch, and he baptized him. 39 When they came up out of the water, (E)the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, [c]but went on his way rejoicing.
