Paul in Macedonia and Greece

1 After the uproar had ceased, Paul sent for the R1195 disciples, and when he had exhorted them and taken his leave of them, he left to R1196 go to Macedonia. R1197 2 When he had gone through those districts and had given them much exhortation, he came to Greece. 3 And there he spent three months, and when a R1198 plot was formed against him by the Jews as he was about to set sail for Syria, R1199 he decided to return through Macedonia. R1200 4 And he F454 was accompanied by Sopater of Berea, R1201 the son of Pyrrhus, and by Aristarchus R1202 and Secundus of the Thessalonians, R1203 and Gaius R1202 of Derbe, R1204 and Timothy, R1205 and Tychicus R1206 and Trophimus R1207 of Asia. R1208 F455 5 But these had gone on ahead and were waiting for us R1209 at Troas. R1210 6 We R1211 sailed from Philippi R1212 after the R1213 days of Unleavened Bread, and came to them at Troas R1214 within five days; and there we stayed seven days.

7 On the R1215 first day of the week, when we R1216 were gathered together to break R1217 bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message F456 until midnight. 8 There were many lamps R1218 in the upper R1219 room where we were gathered together. 9 And there was a young man named Eutychus F457 sitting on F458 the window sill, sinking into a deep sleep; and as Paul kept on talking, he was overcome by sleep and fell down from the third floor and was picked up dead. 10 But Paul went down and fell R1220 upon him, and after embracing him, he said, R1221 "Do F459 not be troubled, for his life is in him." 11 When he had gone back up and had broken R1222 the bread and eaten, F460 he talked with them a long while until daybreak, and then left. 12 They took away the boy alive, and were greatly F461 comforted.

Troas to Miletus

13 But we, R1223 going ahead to the ship, set sail for Assos, intending from there to take Paul on board; for so he had arranged it, intending himself to go by F462 land. 14 And when he met us at Assos, we took him on board and came to Mitylene. 15 Sailing from there, we arrived the following day opposite Chios; and the next day we crossed over to Samos; and the day following we came to Miletus. R1224 16 For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus R1225 so that he would not have to spend time in Asia; R1226 F463 for he was hurrying to R1227 be in Jerusalem, if possible, on R1228 the day of Pentecost.

Farewell to Ephesus

17 From Miletus he sent to Ephesus R1229 and called to him the R1230 elders of the church. 18 And when they had come to him, he said to them,

"You yourselves know, from R1231 the first day that I set foot in Asia, F464 how I was with you the whole time, 19 serving the Lord with all humility and with tears and with trials which came upon me through F465 the R1232 plots of the Jews; 20 how I did R1233 not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly and from F466 house to house, 21 solemnly testifying R1234 to both Jews and Greeks of repentance R1235 toward God and faith R1236 in our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 "And now, behold, bound by the Spirit, F467 I R1237 am on my way to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there, 23 except that the R1238 Holy Spirit solemnly testifies R1239 to me in every city, saying that bonds R1240 and afflictions await me. 24 "But I R1241 do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish R1242 my course and the R1243 ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify R1244 solemnly of the gospel of the R1245 grace of God.

25 "And now, behold, I know that all of you, among whom I went about preaching R1246 the kingdom, will no longer see my face. 26 "Therefore, I testify F468 to you this day that I R1247 am innocent F469 of the blood of all men. 27 "For I did R1248 not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose R1249 of God. 28 "Be on guard for yourselves and for all the R1250 flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, F470 to shepherd the R1251 church of God which He R1252 purchased F471 with F472 His own blood. 29 "I know that after my departure savage R1253 wolves will come in among you, not sparing the R1254 flock; 30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the R1255 disciples after them. 31 "Therefore be on the alert, remembering that night and day for a period of three R1256 years I did not cease to admonish each one with R1257 tears. 32 "And now I commend R1258 you to God and to the R1259 word of His grace, which is able to build R1260 you up and to give you the R1261 inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33 "I R1262 have coveted no one's silver or gold or clothes. 34 "You yourselves know that these R1263 hands ministered to my own needs and to the men R1264 who were with me. 35 "In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, `It is more blessed to give than to receive.' "

36 When he had said these things, he knelt R1265 down and prayed with them all. 37 And they F473 began to weep aloud and embraced R1266 F474 Paul, and repeatedly kissed him, 38 grieving F475 especially over the R1267 word which he had spoken, that they would not see his face again. And they were accompanying R1268 him to the ship.
