American Standard Version
And Philip ran to him, and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
Young's Literal Translation
and Philip having run near, heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, 'Dost thou then know what thou dost read?'
Acts 8:30 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Heard him read the Prophet Esaias - The eunuch, it seems, was reading aloud, and apparently in Greek, for that was the common language in Egypt; and, indeed, almost in every place it was understood. And it appears that it was the Greek version of the Septuagint that he was reading, as the quotation below is from that version.
