Paul goeth to Macedonia.
Acts 20:1 And after the uproar had ceased, Paul called to [him] the disciples, and embraced [them], and departed to go into Macedonia. Acts 20:2 And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece, Acts 20:3 And [there] abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia. Acts 20:4 And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy; and of Asia, Tychicus, and Trophimus. Acts 20:5 These going before, tarried for us at Troas. Acts 20:6 And we sailed away from Philippi, after the days of unleavened bread, and came to them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.
He celebrateth the Lord's supper, and preacheth.
Acts 20:7 And upon the first [day] of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached to them (ready to depart on the morrow) and continued his speech until midnight. Acts 20:8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were assembled.
Eutychus having fallen down dead,
Acts 20:9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, having fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
is raised to life.
Acts 20:10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing [him], said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him. Acts 20:11 When he had come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and discoursed a long while, even till break of day, so he departed. Acts 20:12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
Acts 20:13 And we went before to a ship, and sailed to Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so he had appointed, intending himself to go on foot. Acts 20:14 And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene. Acts 20:15 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 the next [day] we came to Miletus. Acts 20:16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.
At Miletus he calleth the elders together, telleth them what shall befall to himself,
Acts 20:17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church. Acts 20:18 And when they had come to him, he said to them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons, Acts 20:19 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews: Acts 20:20 [And] how I kept back nothing that was profitable [to you], but have shown you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house, Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance towards God, and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 20:22 And now behold, I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: Acts 20:23 Save that the Holy Spirit testifieth in every city, saying, that bonds and afflictions abide me. Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I have received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:25 And now behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, will see my face no more. Acts 20:26 Wherefore I call you to witness this day, that I [am] pure from the blood of all [men]. Acts 20:27 For I have not shunned to declare to you all the counsel of God.
committeth God's flock to them,
Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
warneth them of false teachers,
Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departure grievous wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Acts 20:30 Also from your own selves will men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Acts 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
commendeth them to God,
Acts 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them who are sanctified. Acts 20:33 I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel. Acts 20:34 And ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered to my necessities, and to them that were with me. Acts 20:35 I have shown you all things, that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
prayeth with them, and goeth his way.
Acts 20:36 And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all. Acts 20:37 And they all wept bitterly, and fell on Paul's neck, and kissed him, Acts 20:38 Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spoke, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him to the ship.
