You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God.
King James Bible
Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.
American Standard Version
Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right before God.
Young's Literal Translation
thou hast neither part nor lot in this thing, for thy heart is not right before God;
Acts 8:21 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter - Thou hast no part among the faithful, and no lot in this ministry. That the word κληρος, which we translate lot, is to be understood as implying a spiritual portion, office, etc., see proved in the note on Numbers 26:55 (note).
Thy heart is not right - It is not through motives of purity, benevolence, or love to the souls of men, that thou desirest to be enabled to confer the Holy Ghost; it is through pride, vain glory, and love of money: thou wouldest now give a little money that thou mightest, by thy new gift, gain much.
