Acts 13:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Mischief (ῥᾳδιουργίας)

Only here in New Testament. Originally, ease or facility in doing; hence readiness in turning the hand to anything, bad or good; and so recklessness, unscrupulousness, wickedness. A kindred word (ῥᾳδιούργημα, lewdness, Rev., villany) occurs at Acts 18:14.

Right ways

Or straight, possibly with an allusion to Elymas' crooked ways.
