Acts 20:1-16 World English Bible

Paul's Journey to Macedonia and Greece

20 1  After the uproar had ceased, Paul sent for the disciples, took leave of them, and departed to go into Macedonia. 2  When he had gone through those parts, and had encouraged them with many words, he came into Greece. 3  When he had spent three months there, and a plot was made against him by Jews as he was about to set sail for Syria, he determined to return through Macedonia. 4  These accompanied him as far as Asia: Sopater of Beroea; Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians; Gaius of Derbe; Timothy; and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia. 5  But these had gone ahead, and were waiting for us at Troas. 6  We sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and came to them at Troas in five days, where we stayed seven days.

Paul's Farewell Visit at Troas

7  On the first day of the week, when the disciples were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and continued his speech until midnight. 8  There were many lights in the upper chamber where we [1] were gathered together. 9  A certain young man named Eutychus sat in the window, weighed down with deep sleep. As Paul spoke still longer, being weighed down by his sleep, he fell down from the third story, and was taken up dead. 10  Paul went down, and fell upon him, and embracing him said, “Don’t be troubled, for his life is in him.” 11  When he had gone up, and had broken bread, and eaten, and had talked with them a long while, even until break of day, he departed. 12  They brought the boy in alive, and were greatly comforted.

The Voyage from Troas to Miletus

13  But we who went ahead to the ship set sail for Assos, intending to take Paul aboard there, for he had so arranged, intending himself to go by land. 14  When he met us at Assos, we took him aboard, and came to Mitylene. 15  Sailing from there, we came the following day opposite Chios. The next day we touched at Samos and stayed at Trogyllium, and the day after we came to Miletus. 16  For Paul had determined to sail past Ephesus, that he might not have to spend time in Asia; for he was hastening, if it were possible for him, to be in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.
