Bible: Acts 20:1-12

Paul Travels Through Macedonia and Greece

20:1 After the disturbance had ended, Paul sent for the disciples, and after encouraging 1  them and saying farewell, 2  he left to go to Macedonia. 3  20:2 After he had gone through those regions 4  and spoken many words of encouragement 5  to the believers there, 6  he came to Greece, 7  20:3 where he stayed 8  for three months. Because the Jews had made 9  a plot 10  against him as he was intending 11  to sail 12  for Syria, he decided 13  to return through Macedonia. 14  20:4 Paul 15  was accompanied by Sopater son of Pyrrhus from Berea, 16  Aristarchus and Secundus from Thessalonica, 17  Gaius 18  from Derbe, 19  and Timothy, as well as Tychicus and Trophimus from the province of Asia. 20  20:5 These had gone on ahead 21  and were waiting for us in Troas. 22  20:6 We 23  sailed away from Philippi 24  after the days of Unleavened Bread, 25  and within five days 26  we came to the others 27  in Troas, 28  where we stayed for seven days. 20:7 On the first day 29  of the week, when we met 30  to break bread, Paul began to speak 31  to the people, and because he intended 32  to leave the next day, he extended 33  his message until midnight. 20:8 (Now there were many lamps 34  in the upstairs room where we were meeting.) 35  20:9 A young man named Eutychus, who was sitting in the window, 36  was sinking 37  into a deep sleep while Paul continued to speak 38  for a long time. Fast asleep, 39  he fell down from the third story and was picked up dead. 20:10 But Paul went down, 40  threw himself 41  on the young man, 42  put his arms around him, 43  and said, “Do not be distressed, for he is still alive! 44  20:11 Then Paul 45  went back upstairs, 46  and after he had broken bread and eaten, he talked with them 47  a long time, until dawn. Then he left. 20:12 They took the boy home alive and were greatly 48  comforted.
