Acts 20


Paul's Journey in Greece

And after [3ceased 1the 2tumult], [2having called 1Paul] the disciples, and saluting, went forth to go into Macedonia. And having gone through those parts, and comforting them [2communication 1by much], he came unto Greece. And having spent [2months 1three], [2having been made 3against him 1with a plot] by the Jews, being about to embark unto Syria, he became of the opinion to return through Macedonia. And there accompanied him as far as Asia Sopator a Berean; and of Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundos, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus. These having gone forward waited for us in Troas. And we sailed across, after the days of the unleavened breads, from Philippi, and came to them in Troas unto [2days 1five]; where we spent [2days 1seven]. And on day one of the Sabbaths, [3having been gathered 1the 2disciples] to break bread, Paul reasoned with them, being about to exit the next day; and he extended the word until midnight. And there were [2of lamps 1a fit amount] in the upper room where we gathered together.

Eutychus Raised from the Dead

And there was sitting down a certain young one, by name Eutychus, by the window, being sunk [2sleep 1in a deep]. And with Paul reasoning for a long time, having sunken from the sleep, he fell from the third level to below, and was lifted up dead. 10 And having descended, Paul fell upon him, and having wrapped around him, said, Do not make a disruption, for his life [2in 3him 1is]. 11 And having ascended, and having broken bread, and having tasted, and for a fit time consorting until daylight, thus he went forth. 12 And they brought the child alive, and were comforted not moderately. 13 And we having gone forth unto the boat, embarked unto Assos, from there being about to take up Paul; for so it was having been set in order, himself being about to go on foot. 14 And when he united with us at Assos, having taken him in, we came unto Mitylene. 15 And from there we sailed away, and on the following day we arrived towards Chios; and another day we set aside unto Samos, and abided in Trogyllium; and the next day we came to Miletus, 16 [3decided 1for 2Paul] to sail by Ephesus, so that it should not happen for him to spend time in Asia; for he hastened, if it was possible for him, [4on the 5day 6of Pentecost 1to be 2in 3Jerusalem].

Paul's Farewell Address

17 And from Miletus, having sent to Ephesus, he called for the elders of the assembly. 18 And when they were come to him, he said to them, You know, from the first day of which I set foot in Asia, how [2with 3you 4all the 5time 1I was], 19 serving to the Lord with all humility, and many tears, and tests, of the ones coming to pass to me in the plots of the Jews; 20 how [2nothing 1I kept back] of the things advantageous unto you, so as to not announce it to you and to teach you in public, and by houses, 21 testifying both to Jews, and Greeks the thing for God -- repentance and belief, the one in our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 And now behold, I being bound in the spirit go unto Jerusalem, [3the things 4in 5it 6meeting up with 7me 1not 2knowing]; 23 except that the [2spirit 1holy] in every city testifies, saying that bonds [4me 1and 2afflictions 3await]. 24 But [3of nothing 2account 1I make], nor do I hold my life esteemed to myself, as to finish my race with joy, and the service which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the good news of the favor of God. 25 And now, behold, I know that no longer shall [3see 4my face 1you 2all], among whom I went about proclaiming the kingdom of God. 26 Therefore I testify to you in today's day, that I am clean from the blood of all; 27 [3did not 1for 2I] keep back to announce to you all the counsel of God. 28 Take heed then to yourselves, and to all the flock! in which [5you 1the 3spirit 2holy 4placed] as overseers, to tend the assembly of God, which he procured through his own blood. 29 For I know this, that [3shall enter 4after 5my departure 2wolves 1grievous] unto you, not sparing the flock. 30 And from out of your own selves shall rise up men speaking things being perverted, to draw away the disciples after them. 31 Therefore be vigilant! remembering that for a space of three years, night and day, I ceased not with tears, admonishing [2one 1each]. 32 And at present I point you out, brethren, to God and to the word of his favor, to the thing being able to build up, and to give to you an inheritance among [2the ones 3having been sanctified 1all]. 33 [3silver 4or 5gold 6or 7clothes 2of no one 1I desired]. 34 You know yourselves, that my needs, and the ones being with me, [3assisted 2hands 1these]. 35 All things I plainly showed to you, that so tiring it is necessary to assist the ones being weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he said, [3blessed 1It is 4to give 2more] than to receive. 36 And these things having said, having set his knees with them all, he prayed. 37 [3a fit amount 1And 2there became] of weeping by all; and falling upon the neck of Paul they kissed him, 38 being grieved especially over the word which he had said, that no longer are they about [2his face 1to view]. And they sent him unto the boat.
