Acts 16:16

Paul and Silas in Prison

16 Once, as we were on our way to prayer, a
slave: The strong Greek word doulos cannot be accurately translated in English by "servant" or "bond servant"; the HCSB translates this word as "slave," not out of insensitivity to the legitimate concerns of modern English speakers, but out of a commitment to accurately convey the brutal reality of the Roman empire's inhumane institution as well as the ownership called for by Christ.
slave girl met us who had a spirit of prediction.
Or a spirit by which she predicted the future
c She made a large profit for her owners by fortune-telling.
