“Huh? If it was unknown, why was she searching for deliverance?”
It’s not that hard to figure out, despite the indefinite antecedent. She was really messed up. She didn’t know it was demonic possession. She arduously searched for a way to get better. Nothing worked until Yahweh acted.
She went to magicians. Hardly arduous. Not medical doctors. If this was India, their medicine is as good as that in this country. Methinks that this is a fairy story that people here are falling for - line, hook and sinker.
