Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:8-12.


Acts 13:10

_ _ full of all subtlety — referring to his magic arts.

_ _ and all malice — The word signifies “readiness for anything,” knavish dexterity.

_ _ thou child of the devil ... enemy of all righteousness — These were not words of passion, for immediately before uttering them, it is said he was “filled with the Holy Ghost” [Chrysostom].

_ _ wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord — referring to his having to that hour made a trade of leading his fellow creatures astray.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:4-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 13:10

O full of all guile — As a false prophet, and all mischief — As a magician. Thou son of the devil — A title well suited to a magician; and one who not only was himself unrighteous, but laboured to keep others from all goodness. Wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? — Even now thou hast heard the truth of the Gospel.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 13:10

(5) And said, O full of all subtilty and all (e) mischief, [thou] child of the devil, [thou] enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?

(5) The sorcerer, who was stricken by Paul with a physical punishment (although extraordinarily), shows an example to lawful magistrates how they ought to punish those who wickedly and obstinately hinder the course of the Gospel.

(e) He points out a fault of those who run eagerly and with great desire into all types of wickedness with the least bit of prompting from the world.
