Acts 13: 6-11

 

      

        They went all the way across the island to Paphos, where they met a certain magician named Bar-Jesus, a Jew who claimed to be a prophet.  He was a friend of the governor of the island, Sergius Paulus, who was an intelligent man.  

       The governor called Barnabas and Saul before him because he wanted to hear the word of God.  But they were opposed by the magician Elymas (that is his name in Greek), who tried to turn the governor away from the faith.  

       Then Saul—also know as Paul—was filled with the Holy Spirit; he looked straight at the magician and said,

      “You son of the Devil!   You are the enemy of everything that is good.  You are full of all kinds of evil tricks, and you always keep trying to turn the Lords’ truths into lies!  The Lord’s hand will come down on you now; you will be blind and will not see the light of day for a time.”
