I am the Lord, and I am going to let Nebuchadnezzar capture this city and burn it down. 3 You will be taken prisoner and brought to Nebuchadnezzar, and he will speak with you face to face. Then you will be led away to Babylonia.

Analects 7.20 (Confucianism)

Sutta Nipata 927 (Buddhism)
As we were going to the place of prayer, we were
met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination
and brought her owners much gain by soothsay-
ing. She followed Paul and us, crying, “These
men are servants of the Most High God, who
proclaim to you the way of salvation.” And this
she did for many days. But Paul was annoyed,
and turned and said to the spirit, “I charge you
in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.”
And it came out that very hour.
Aisha told that when God’s messenger was
asked by some people about fortune-tellers he
replied, “They are of no account.” They said,
“Messenger of God, they sometimes tell a thing
which is true.” He replied, “That is a word per-
taining to truth which a jinn snatches and cack-
les into the ear of his friend as a hen does; then
they mix more than a hundred lies with it.”
Hadith of Bukhari and Muslim (Islam)
When the unclean spirit has gone out of a man,
he passes through waterless places seeking rest,
but he finds none. Then he says, “I will return
to my house from which I came.” And when he
comes he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
Then he goes and brings with him seven other
spirits more evil than himself, and they enter
and dwell there; and the last state of that man
becomes worse than the first.
