Acts 19:11-16 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 And God did works of power not small by the hand of Paul, [God did virtues not little by the hand of Paul,]

12 so that on sick men the napkins [the sudaria, or girdles], were borne from his body, and sicknesses departed from them, and wicked spirits went out.

13 But also some of the Jewish exorcists went about, and assayed to call the name of the Lord Jesus Christ on them that had evil spirits, and said[a], I conjure you by Jesus, whom Paul preacheth.

14 And there were [some] seven sons of a Jew, Sceva, a prince of priests, that did this thing.

15 But the evil spirit answered, and said to them, I know Jesus, and I know Paul; but who be ye?

16 And the man in which was the worst devil, leaped on them, and had victory on both [and having lordship of both], and was strong against them, that they naked and wounded fled away from that house.

Acts 19:11-16 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

11 And God worked no small miracles by the hands of Paul. 12 Napkins or partlets were even brought from his body to the sick, and their diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, We exorcise you by Jesus whom Paul preaches! 14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew and chief of the priests, who did this. 15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know, but who are you? 16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was ran on them and overcame them, and so prevailed against them that they fled out of that house with their clothes torn off, and wounded.

12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick, kerchiefs, or handkerchiefs, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

13 [a]Then certain of the vagabond Jews, [b]exorcists took in hand to name over them which had evil spirits, the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus, whom Paul preacheth.
