20 And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto him athe disciples, and bembraced them, and cdeparted for to go into dMacedonia. 2 *And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece, 3 And there abode three months. And ewhen the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into fSyria, he purposed to return through dMacedonia. 4 And there accompanied him into gAsia Sopater of hBerea; and of the iThessalonians, kAristarchus and Secundus; and kGaius of lDerbe, and mTimotheus; and of gAsia, nTychicus and oTrophimus. 5 These going before tarried for pus at qTroas. 6 And we sailed away from rPhilippi after sthe days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to qTroas in five days; where we abode seven days. 7 And upon tthe first day of the week, when athe disciples came together to ubreak bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight. 8 And there were many vlights in wthe upper chamber, where they were gathered together. 9 And there sat in a xwindow a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third yloft, and was taken up dead. 10 And Paul went down, and zfell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; afor his life is in him. 11 When he therefore was come up again, and had bbroken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed. 12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
13 And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so had he appointed, minding himself to go afoot. 14 And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene. 15 And we sailed thence, and came the next day over against Chios; and the next day we arrived at Samos, and tarried at Trogyllium; and cthe next day we came to dMiletus. 16 For Paul had determined to sail by eEphesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, fto be at Jerusalem gthe day of Pentecost. 17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called hthe elders of the church. 18 And when they were come to him, he said unto them,
Ye know, ifrom the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons, 19 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me kby the lying in wait of the Jews: 20 And how lI kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, lbut have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, 21 mTestifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, norepentance toward God, and nfaith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. 22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: 23 Save that pthe Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, qsaying that bonds and afflictions ||abide me. 24 But rnone of these things move me, neither scount I my life dear unto myself, so that I might tfinish my course with joy, and uthe ministry, which I have received wof the Lord Jesus, to mtestify the gospel of the grace of God. 25 And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone xpreaching the kingdom of God, yshall see my face no more. 26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that zI am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For aI have not shunned to declare unto you all bthe counsel of God. 28 cTake heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all dthe flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you eoverseers, dto feed the church of God, which he hath fpurchased gwith his own blood. 29 For I know this, that after my departing shall hgrievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also iof your own selves shall men arise, speaking kperverse things, to draw away ldisciples after them. 31 Therefore mwatch, and remember, that by the space of nthree years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32 And now, brethren, I ocommend you to God, and to pthe word of his grace, which is able to qbuild you up, and to give you ran inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33 sI have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or tapparel. 34 Yea, ye yourselves know, that uthese hands have ministered unto my necessities, and xto them that were with me. 35 I have shewed you all things, how that sso labouring ye ought to ysupport the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
36 And when he had thus spoken, he zkneeled down, and prayed with them all. 37 And they all wept sore, and afell on Paul’s neck, and kissed him, 38 Sorrowing most of all for the words bwhich he spake, that they should see his face no more. And they caccompanied him unto the ship.
