Acts 13:4-12 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

But they were sent of the Holy Ghost, and went forth to Seleucia [And soothly they sent of the Holy Ghost, went forth to Seleucia], and from thence they went by boat to Cyprus.

And when they came to Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of Jews; and they had also John in ministry [in ministry, or service].

And when they had walked by all the isle to Paphos, they found a man, a witch [And when they had walked by all the isle unto Paphos, they found some man witch], a false prophet, a Jew, to whom the name was Barjesus,

that was with the proconsul Sergius Paulus, a prudent man. This called Barnabas and Paul, and desired to hear the word of God.

But Elymas the witch withstood them; for his name is expounded so; and he sought to turn away the proconsul from belief.[a]

But Saul, which is said also Paul [Forsooth Saul, which and Paul is called], was filled with the Holy Ghost, and beheld into him,

10 and said, A! thou full of all guile, and all falseness, thou son of the devil, thou enemy of all rightwiseness, thou leavest not to turn upside-down [thou leavest not to subvert] the rightful ways of the Lord.

11 And now lo! the hand of the Lord is on thee, and thou shalt be blind, and not seeing the sun into a time. And at once [a] mist and darkness felled down on him; and he went about, and sought him that should give [the] hand to him. [And now lo! the hand of the Lord on thee, and thou shalt be blind, and not seeing sun till a time. And anon a mist fell down on him and darkness, and he going about, sought him that should give the hand to him.]

12 Then the proconsul, when he had seen the deed, believed, wondering on the teaching of the Lord.

Acts 13:4-12 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

And they, after they were sent by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to the island of Cyprus. And when they had come to Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. And they had John Mark to assist them.

When they had gone throughout the isle to the city of Paphos, they found a certain magician, a false prophet who was a Jew named Bar-Jesus. He was with the proconsul of the province, one Sergius Paulus, a man of understanding. This man called to him Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. But Elymas the magician (for so was his name by translation) withstood them, and sought to turn the proconsul away from the faith.

Then Saul, who also is called Paul, being full of the Holy Spirit, set his eyes on him 10 and said, O full of all subtlety and deceitfulness, child of the devil and enemy of all righteousness, you cease not to pervert the straight ways of the Lord. 11 And now behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a season.

And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness, and he went about seeking someone to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the proconsul, when he saw what had happened, believed, and wondered at the doctrine of the Lord.

Acts 13:4-12 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]And they after they were sent forth of the holy Ghost, came down unto [b]Seleucia, and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.

And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the Synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.

So when they had gone throughout the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, being a Jew, named Bar-Jesus,

Which was with the Deputy Sergius Paulus, a prudent man. He called unto him Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.

[c]But Elymas the sorcerer, (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, and sought to turn away the Deputy from the faith.

Then Saul (which also is called Paul) being full of the holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,

10 [d]And said, O full of all subtlety and all [e]mischief, the child of the devil, and enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the straight ways of the Lord?

11 Now therefore behold, the [f]hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, and not see the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness, and he went about, seeking some to lead him by the hand.

12 Then the Deputy when he saw what was done, believed, and was astonied at the doctrine of the Lord.

Acts 13:4-12 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus. And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister. And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus: which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10 and said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. 12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
