      n : the art of sorcery [syn: witchery]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    (1 Sam. 15:23; 2 Kings 9:22; 2 Chr. 33:6; Micah 5:12; Nahum 3:4;
    Gal. 5:20). In the popular sense of the word no mention is made
    either of witches or of witchcraft in Scripture.
      The "witch of En-dor" (1 Sam. 28) was a necromancer, i.e., one
    who feigned to hold converse with the dead. The damsel with "a
    spirit of divination" (Acts 16:16) was possessed by an evil
    spirit, or, as the words are literally rendered, "having a
    spirit, a pithon." The reference is to the heathen god Apollo,
    who was regarded as the god of prophecy.
