Bible: Acts 13:6-13

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. 13:12 Then when the proconsul 21  saw what had happened, he believed, 22  because he was greatly astounded 23  at the teaching about 24  the Lord.
