Acts 20:2–16

Now when he had gone over that region and encouraged them with many words, he came to bGreece and stayed three months. And cwhen the Jews plotted against him as he was about to sail to Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia. And Sopater of Berea accompanied him to Asia—also dAristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, and eGaius of Derbe, and fTimothy, and gTychicus and hTrophimus of Asia. These men, going ahead, waited for us at iTroas. But we sailed away from Philippi after jthe Days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days joined them kat Troas, where we stayed seven days.

Ministering at Troas

Now on lthe first day of the week, when the disciples came together mto break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight. There were many lamps nin the upper room where 1they were gathered together. And in a window sat a certain young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep. He was overcome by sleep; and as Paul continued speaking, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead. 10 But Paul went down, ofell on him, and embracing him said, p“Do not trouble yourselves, for his life is in him.” 11 Now when he had come up, had broken bread and eaten, and talked a long while, even till daybreak, he departed. 12 And they brought the young man in alive, and they were not a little comforted.

From Troas to Miletus

13 Then we went ahead to the ship and sailed to Assos, there intending to take Paul on board; for so he had 2given orders, intending himself to go on foot. 14 And when he met us at Assos, we took him on board and came to Mitylene. 15 We sailed from there, and the next day came opposite Chios. The following day we arrived at Samos and stayed at Trogyllium. The next day 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 qhe was hurrying rto be at Jerusalem, if possible, on sthe Day of Pentecost.
