2 and having found a ship crossing over to aPhoenicia, we went aboard and set sail.
5 When 1our days there were ended, we left and started on our journey, while they all, with wives and children, aescorted us until we were out of the city. After bkneeling down on the beach and praying, we said farewell to one another.
6 Then we went on board the ship, and they returned ahome again.
9 Now this man had four virgin daughters who were aprophetesses.
10 As we were staying there for some days, a prophet named aAgabus came down from Judea.
11 And coming to us, he atook Paul’s belt and bound his own feet and hands, and said, “This bis what the Holy Spirit says: ‘In this way the Jews at Jerusalem will cbind the man who owns this belt and ddeliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’ ”
12 When we had heard this, we as well as the local residents began begging him anot to go up to Jerusalem.
14 And since he would not be persuaded, we fell silent, remarking, “aThe will of the Lord be done!”
15 After these days we got ready and astarted on our way up to Jerusalem.
17 After we arrived in Jerusalem, athe brethren received us gladly.
20 And when they heard it they began aglorifying God; and they said to him, “You see, brother, how many 1thousands there are among the Jews of those who have believed, and they are all bzealous for the Law;
21 and they have been told about you, that you are ateaching all the Jews who are among the Gentiles to forsake Moses, telling them bnot to circumcise their children nor to 1walk according to cthe customs.
24 take them and apurify yourself along with them, and 1pay their expenses so that they may bshave their 2heads; and all will know that there is nothing to the things which they have been told about you, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the Law.
26 Then Paul 1took the men, and the next day, apurifying himself along with them, bwent into the temple giving notice of the completion of the days of purification, until the sacrifice was offered for each one of them.
28 crying out, “Men of Israel, come to our aid! aThis is the man who preaches to all men everywhere against our people and the Law and this place; and besides he has even brought Greeks into the temple and has bdefiled this holy place.”
36 for the multitude of the people kept following them, shouting, “aAway with him!”
