Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits1 tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, "In the name of Jesus,2 whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out."
Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this.
[One day] the evil spirit answered them, "Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?"
Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.
