KJV translation of two Greek words. In Galatians 3:1 , Paul criticized the Galatians for being “captivated by the falsehood” (baskaino) of the Judaizers to the point of straying from the Gospel. The Greek word used here has a history in magical evil and the casting of spells. “Bewitch” is also used as a translation of another word (existemi) that modern versions translate as “amazed,” “astonish,” or “astound” (Acts 8:9 ,Acts 8:9,8:11 ).
