Acts 16:16-18

Paul and Silas in Prison

16 As we were going to x the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had y a spirit of z divination and a brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and us, b crying out, "These men are c servants 1 of d the Most High God, who proclaim to you e the way of salvation." 18 And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, f "I command you g in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And h it came out that very hour.
