Through Macedonia and Greece to Troas
after the uproar had ceased, Paul, having sent for the disciples and having exhorted them,
took leave of them
and went off to go into 1aMacedonia
when he had passed through those parts and had exhorted them with many words, he came into Greece,
months there. And
when a aplot
was made against him by the bJews
as he was about to set sail for Syria, he 2resolved
to return through Macedonia.
Sopater of Berea, the son
of Pyrrhus, accompanied him, as well as aAristarchus
and Secundus of the Thessalonians and 1Gaius
and the Asians, dTychicus
had gone on ahead and were waiting for us at Troas.
we sailed away from aPhilippi
after the days of bUnleavened
Bread and in five days came to them in cTroas
, where we spent seven days.
on the 1afirst
day of the week, when 2we
gathered together to bbreak
bread, Paul conversed with them since he was to go forth on the next day; and he extended his message until midnight.
there were a considerable number of lamps in the aupper
room where we were gathered together.
a certain young man named Eutychus was sitting in the window and began to sink into deep sleep while Paul conversed longer; and
when he had been overcome by sleep, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead.
Paul went down and fell aupon
him, and embracing him,
he said, Do not make a commotion, for his soul is in him.
when he had gone up and abroken
the bread and 1eaten
and had spoken for a considerable time, until daybreak, he therefore went forth.
they brought the boy alive and were comforted, and that
To Miletus, meeting with the elders of the church in Ephesus
we, going ahead onto the ship, set sail for Assos, from there intending to pick up Paul, for so he had arranged it,
himself intending to go by foot.
when he met us in Assos, we picked him up and came to Mitylene.
sailing away from there, on the following day we arrived opposite Chios; and on the next day we put in at Samos. And on the day following we came to Miletus,
Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus so that he might not have to spend time in Asia; for he was hurrying so that
if possible he might be in aJerusalem
on the 1day
from Miletus he sent word
to Ephesus and called for the aelders
of the bchurch
when they came to him, he said to them, You yourselves know, from the first day that I set foot in aAsia
I was with you all the time,
the Lord as a slave with all bhumility
which came upon me by the eplots
of the Jews;
I did not awithhold
any of those things that are profitable by not declaring them
to you and by not
teaching you publicly and from bhouse
both to Jews and to bGreeks crepentance
unto God and dfaith 1in
our Lord 2Jesus
now, behold, I am going 1bound
in the 2spirit
, not knowing what will meet me 3there
that the Holy aSpirit
solemnly testifies to me in city after city, saying that bbonds
of no account as if
precious to myself, in order that I may finish my bcourse
and the cministry
which I have received from the Lord Jesus to solemnly dtestify
of the egospel
of the fgrace
now, behold, I know that you all, among whom I have gone about proclaiming the 1akingdom
, will see my bface 2no
I testify to you 1on athis
day that 2I
am clean from the bblood
of all men,
I did not ashrink
from declaring to you all the bcounsel
heed to yourselves and to all the 1bflock
, among whom the Holy 2cSpirit
you as 3eoverseers
of God, which He hobtained
know that after my departure fierce awolves
will come in among you, not 1sparing
from among you yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverted things to 1adraw
away the disciples after them.
, remembering that for bthree
years, night and day, I did not cease admonishing each one with ctears
now I acommit
you to 1God
and to the word of His 2bgrace
, which is able to cbuild you
up and to give you
among all those who have been 4esanctified
no one's silver or gold or clothing.
yourselves know that these 1ahands
have ministered to my needs and to those who are with me.
all things I have shown you by example that atoiling
in this way we ought to support 1the bweak
and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, 2It
is more blessed to cgive
than to receive.
when he had said these things, he aknelt
down with them all and prayed.
there was considerable weeping by all; and afalling
on Paul's neck, they kissed him affectionately,
pained over the word which he had spoken, that they would no longer behold his aface
. And they bescorted
him to the ship.
