The chains of iniquity (Acts 8:23)

“I see

That you are in

The gall of bitterness

And the chains

Of iniquity.”

εἰς γὰρ χολὴν πικρίας καὶ σύνδεσμον ἀδικίας ὁρῶ σε ὄντα.

The author of Acts indicated that Peter said that he saw Simon (ὁρῶ σε ὄντα), the magician, in the gall of bitterness (εἰς γὰρ χολὴν πικρίας) and the chains of iniquity (καὶ σύνδεσμον ἀδικίας).  Peter said that he saw that Simon was bitter and bound in the chains of wickedness.  He pointed out the bad situation that Simon was in.  Have you ever been in a bad situation?
