Acts 16:16-18 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Paul and Silas in Jail

16 One day we were going to the place for prayer, and a servant girl met us. She had a spirit[a] in her that gave her the power to tell what would happen in the future. By doing this she earned a lot of money for the men who owned her. 17 She started following Paul and the rest of us around. She kept shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God! They are telling you how you can be saved!” 18 She continued doing this for many days. This bothered Paul, so he turned and said to the spirit, “By the power of Jesus Christ, I command you to come out of her!” Immediately, the spirit came out.
