Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

A charmer - i. e., one who fascinates and subdues noxious animals or men, such as the famous serpent-charmers of the East Psalm 58:4-5.

A consulter with familiar spirits ... a wizard - Compare Leviticus 19:31 note.

Their appearance bore evidence of the shameful treatment they had recently received, and necessitated an explanation of what had taken place.
