(A)He had his hair cut off at (B)Cenchrea, for he had taken a vow. 19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there; but he himself entered the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews. 20 When they asked him to stay a longer time with them, he did not consent, 21 but took leave of them, saying, (C)“I[b] must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem; but I will return again to you, (D)God willing.” And he sailed from Ephesus.

When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.
