“¶ And when her Masters saw that the hope of their gaines was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the market place, vnto the rulers,”
King James Version (KJV)
16. ¶ And it came to passe, as we went to prayer, a certaine Damosell possessed with a spirit of diuination, met vs: which brought her masters much gaine by soothsaying. 17. The same followed Paul and vs, and cried, saying, These men are the seruants of the most hie God, which shew vnto vs the way of saluation. 18. And this did she many dayes: but Paul being grieued, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the Name of Iesus Christ, to come out of her. And he came out the same houre. 19. ¶ And when her Masters saw that the hope of their gaines was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the market place, vnto the rulers, 20. And brought them to the Magistrates, saying, These men being Iewes, do exceedingly trouble our city, 21. And teach customes which are not lawfull for vs to receiue, neither to obserue, being Romanes. 22. And the multitude rose vp together against them, and the Magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beate them.
