Acts 20:1-16 New American Standard Bible

Paul's Journey to Macedonia and Greece

20 1  After the uproar had ceased , Paul sent for the disciples , and when he had exhorted them and taken his leave of them, he left to go to Macedonia . 2  When he had gone through those districts and had given them much exhortation e , he came to Greece . 3  And there he spent three months , and when a plot was formed against him by the Jews as he was about to set sail for Syria , he decided e to return through Macedonia . 4  And he was accompanied by Sopater of Berea , the son of Pyrrhus , and by Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians , and Gaius of Derbe , and Timothy , and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia . 5  But these had gone on ahead and were waiting for us at Troas . 6  We sailed from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and came to them at Troas within five days ; and there we stayed seven days .

Paul's Farewell Visit at Troas

7  On the first day of the week , when we were gathered together to break bread , Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day , and he prolonged his message until midnight . 8  There were many lamps in the upper room where we were gathered together . 9  And there was a young man named Eutychus sitting on 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 upon him, and after embracing him, he said , "Do not be troubled , for his life is in him." 11  When he had gone back up and had broken the bread and eaten , he talked with them a long while until daybreak , and then left . 12  They took away the boy alive , and were greatly e comforted .

The Voyage from Troas to Miletus

13  But we, 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 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 . 16  For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus so that he would not have to spend time in Asia ; for he was hurrying to be in Jerusalem , if possible , on the day of Pentecost .
