Then Simon answered, "Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me."
But Simon answered and said, "Pray to the Lord for me yourselves, so that nothing of what you have said may come upon me."
"Pray to the Lord for me," Simon exclaimed, "that these terrible things won’t happen to me!"
"Oh!" said Simon, "pray for me! Pray to the Master that nothing like that will ever happen to me!"
And Simon, answering, said, Make prayer for me to the Lord, so that these things which you have said may not come on me.
Simon answered, "Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may happen to me."
Then Simon answered and said, "Pray to the Lord for me, that none of the things which you have spoken may come upon me."

2 tn Grk “may come upon.”
