ACTS 20:1 And after the ceasing of the tumult, Paul having called near the disciples, and having embraced `them', went forth to go on to Macedonia;
ACTS 20:2 and having gone through those parts, and having exhorted them with many words, he came to Greece;
ACTS 20:3 having made also three months' `stay' -- a counsel of the Jews having been against him -- being about to set forth to Syria, there came `to him' a resolution of returning through Macedonia.
ACTS 20:4 And there were accompanying him unto Asia, Sopater of Berea, and of Thessalonians Aristarchus and Secundus, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timotheus, and of Asiatics Tychicus and Trophimus;
ACTS 20:5 these, having gone before, did remain for us in Troas,
ACTS 20:6 and we sailed, after the days of the unleavened food, from Philippi, and came unto them to Troas in five days, where we abode seven days.
ACTS 20:7 And on the first of the week, the disciples having been gathered together to break bread, Paul was discoursing to them, about to depart on the morrow, he was also continuing the discourse till midnight,
ACTS 20:8 and there were many lamps in the upper chamber where they were gathered together,
ACTS 20:9 and there was sitting a certain youth, by name Eutychus, upon the window -- being borne down by a deep sleep, Paul discoursing long -- he having sunk down from the sleep, fell down from the third story, and was lifted up dead.
ACTS 20:10 And Paul, having gone down, fell upon him, and having embraced `him', said, `Make no tumult, for his life is in him;'
ACTS 20:11 and having come up, and having broken bread, and having tasted, for a long time also having talked -- till daylight, so he went forth,
ACTS 20:12 and they brought up the lad alive, and were comforted in no ordinary measure.
ACTS 20:13 And we having gone before unto the ship, did sail to Assos, thence intending to take in Paul, for so he had arranged, intending himself to go on foot;
ACTS 20:14 and when he met with us at Assos, having taken him up, we came to Mitylene,
ACTS 20:15 and thence having sailed, on the morrow we came over-against Chios, and the next day we arrived at Samos, and having remained in Trogyllium, on the following day we came to Miletus,
ACTS 20:16 for Paul decided to sail past Ephesus, that there may not be to him a loss of time in Asia, for he hasted, if it were possible for him, on the day of the Pentecost to be at Jerusalem.
ACTS 20:17 And from Miletus, having sent to Ephesus, he called for the elders of the assembly,
ACTS 20:18 and when they were come unto him, he said to them, `Ye -- ye know from the first day in which I came to Asia, how, with you at all times I was;
ACTS 20:19 serving the Lord with all humility, and many tears, and temptations, that befell me in the counsels of the Jews against `me';
ACTS 20:20 how nothing I did keep back of what things are profitable, not to declare to you, and to teach you publicly, and in every house,
ACTS 20:21 testifying fully both to Jews and Greeks, toward God reformation, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
ACTS 20:22 `And now, lo, I -- bound in the Spirit -- go on to Jerusalem, the things that shall befall me in it not knowing,
ACTS 20:23 save that the Holy Spirit in every city doth testify fully, saying, that for me bonds and tribulations remain;
ACTS 20:24 but I make account of none of these, neither do I count my life precious to myself, so that I finish my course with joy, and the ministration that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify fully the good news of the grace of God.
ACTS 20:25 `And now, lo, I have known that no more shall ye see my face, -- ye all among whom I did go preaching the reign of God;
ACTS 20:26 wherefore I take you to witness this day, that I `am' clear from the blood of all,
ACTS 20:27 for I did not keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God.
ACTS 20:28 `Take heed, therefore, to yourselves, and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit made you overseers, to feed the assembly of God that He acquired through His own blood,
ACTS 20:29 for I have known this, that there shall enter in, after my departing, grievous wolves unto you, not sparing the flock,
ACTS 20:30 and of your own selves there shall arise men, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.
ACTS 20:31 `Therefore, watch, remembering that three years, night and day, I did not cease with tears warning each one;
ACTS 20:32 and now, I commend you, brethren, to God, and to the word of His grace, that is able to build up, and to give you an inheritance among all those sanctified.
ACTS 20:33 `The silver or gold or garments of no one did I covet;
ACTS 20:34 and ye yourselves know that to my necessities, and to those who were with me, minister did these hands;
ACTS 20:35 all things I did shew you, that, thus labouring, it behoveth `us' to partake with the ailing, to be mindful also of the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.'
ACTS 20:36 And these things having said, having bowed his knees, with them all, he did pray,
ACTS 20:37 and there came a great weeping to all, and having fallen upon the neck of Paul, they were kissing him,
ACTS 20:38 sorrowing most of all for the word that he had said -- that they are about no more to see his face; and they were accompanying him to the ship.
