Acts 20


20:1 And after the uproar had ceased, Paul called to [him] the
 disciples, and embraced [them], and departed to go into
 Macedonia.
20:2 And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them
 much exhortation, he came into Greece,
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.
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.
20:5 These going before, tarried for us at Troas.
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.
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.
20:8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they
 were assembled.
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.
20:10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing [him],
 said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
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.
20:12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a
 little comforted.
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.
20:14 And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came
 to Mitylene.
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.
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.
20:17 And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders
 of the church.
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,
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:
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,
20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks,
 repentance towards God, and faith towards our Lord Jesus
 Christ.
20:22 And now behold, I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not
 knowing the things that shall befall me there:
20:23 Save that the Holy Spirit testifieth in every city,
 saying, that bonds and afflictions abide me.
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.
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.
20:26 Wherefore I call you to witness this day, that I [am] pure
 from the blood of all [men].
20:27 For I have not shunned to declare to you all the counsel
 of God.
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.
20:29 For I know this, that after my departure grievous wolves
 will enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
20:30 Also from your own selves will men arise, speaking
 perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
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.
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.
20:33 I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.
20:34 And ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered
 to my necessities, and to them that were with me.
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.
20:36 And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed
 with them all.
20:37 And they all wept bitterly, and fell on Paul's neck, and
 kissed him,
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.
