When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, "Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!"
And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.
Crowds came from the villages around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those possessed by evil spirits, and they were all healed.
Many evil spirits were cast out, screaming as they left their victims. And many who had been paralyzed or lame were healed.
For they heard them speaking in other tongues and praising God. Then Peter asked,
This went on day after day until Paul got so exasperated that he turned and said to the demon within her, "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her." And instantly it left her.
