Acts 8:14-17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

14 But when the apostles that were at Jerusalem, had heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John.

15 And when they came, they prayed for them [The which, when they came, prayed for them], that they should receive the Holy Ghost;

16 for he came not yet into any of them [forsooth not yet he came into any of them], but they were baptized only in the name of the Lord Jesus.

17 Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.
