Did he or didn't he? Acts 28

“After we were brought to safety, we learned that the island was called Malta. The natives showed us unusual kindness, as they lit a fire and welcomed us, because it had started to rain and it was cold. When Paul gathered a bundle of sticks and set them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat and caught it in his hand. When the natives saw the creature dangling from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer. Though he escaped from the sea, Justice did not allow him to live.” He, however, shook the creature into the fire and suffered no damage. They were waiting for him to swell up or suddenly drop dead. But when they waited a long time and saw no misfortune come to him, they changed their minds and said he was a God. Now in the vicinity of that place there were lands belonging to the chief of the island, called Publius, who received us and entertained us with hospitality for three days. It so happened that Publio's father was sick with fever and dysentery. And Paul visited him and prayed, and laying his hands on him, healed him. And when that happened, the rest of the people on the island who had illnesses also came and were healed. They also honored us a lot, and when we were about to board, they put on board what we needed. [Now the first words of verse eleven] After 3 months, we set out on a ship.”
