Acts 20:1-16 Darby’s Translation

Paul's Journey to Macedonia and Greece

20 1  But after the tumult had ceased, Paul having called the disciples to [him] and embraced [them], went away to go to Macedonia. 2  And having passed through those parts, and having exhorted them with much discourse, he came to Greece. 3  And having spent three months [there], a treacherous plot against him having been set on foot by the Jews, as he was going to sail to Syria, [the] resolution was adopted of returning through Macedonia. 4  And there accompanied him as far as Asia, Sopater [son] of Pyrrhus, a Berean; and of Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus, and Gaius and Timotheus of Derbe, and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus. 5  These going before waited for us in Troas; 6  but we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and we came to them to Troas in five days, where we spent seven days.

Paul's Farewell Visit at Troas

7  And the first day of the week, we being assembled to break bread, Paul discoursed to them, about to depart on the morrow. And he prolonged the discourse till midnight. 8  And there were many lights in the upper room where we were assembled. 9  And a certain youth, by name Eutychus, sitting at the window-opening, overpowered by deep sleep, while Paul discoursed very much at length, having been overpowered by the sleep, fell from the third story down to the bottom, and was taken up dead. 10  But Paul descending fell upon him, and enfolding [him] [in his arms], said, Be not troubled, for his life is in him. 11  And having gone up, and having broken the bread, and eaten, and having long spoken until daybreak, so he went away. 12  And they brought [away] the boy alive, and were no little comforted.

The Voyage from Troas to Miletus

13  And we, having gone before on board ship, sailed off to Assos, going to take in Paul there; for so he had directed, he himself being about to go on foot. 14  And when he met with us at Assos, having taken him on board, we came to Mitylene; 15  and having sailed thence, on the morrow arrived opposite Chios, and the next day put in at Samos; and having stayed at Trogyllium, the next day we came to Miletus: 16  for Paul thought it desirable to sail by Ephesus, so that he might not be made to spend time in Asia; for he hastened, if it was possible for him, to be the day of Pentecost at Jerusalem.
