accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians,
Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timotheus; and of Asia,

These going before tarried for us at Troas.
And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of
unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode
the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread,
Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his
speech until midnight.
And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered
And there sat
in a window 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 loft, and was taken up dead.
And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said,
Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
When he therefore was come up again, and had broken
bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he
brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
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.

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.
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.
And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus,
and called the elders of the church.
And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from
the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at
the LORD with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which
befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:
And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto
you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to
both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith
toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing
the things that shall befall me there:
Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city,
saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.
But none of these things move me, neither count I my
life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the
ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the
grace of God.
now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom
of God, shall see my face no more.
Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the
blood of all men.
I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
For I know this, that after my
departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves
shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after
watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn
every one night and day with tears.
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 which are sanctified.
I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.
Yea, ye yourselves know, that these
hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
I have shewed you all
things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the
words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to
And when he
had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.
And they all wept sore, and fell on
Paul's neck, and kissed him,
Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake, that they should
see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.
