Bible: Acts 13:6-11
13:6 When they had crossed over 1 the whole island as far as Paphos, 2 they found a magician, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus, 3 13:7 who was with the proconsul 4 Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. The proconsul 5 summoned 6 Barnabas and Saul and wanted to hear 7 the word of God. 13:8 But the magician Elymas 8 (for that is the way his name is translated) 9 opposed them, trying to turn the proconsul 10 away from the faith. 13:9 But Saul (also known as Paul), 11 filled with the Holy Spirit, 12 stared straight 13 at him 13:10 and said, “You who are full of all deceit and all wrongdoing, 14 you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness – will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord? 15 13:11 Now 16 look, the hand of the Lord is against 17 you, and you will be blind, unable to see the sun for a time!” Immediately mistiness 18 and darkness came over 19 him, and he went around seeking people 20 to lead him by the hand.
