21 I have declared to both Jews(A) and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance(B) and have faith in our Lord Jesus.(C)

22 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem,(D) not knowing what will happen to me there. 23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me(E) that prison and hardships are facing me.(F) 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me;(G) my only aim is to finish the race(H) and complete the task(I) the Lord Jesus has given me(J)—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.(K)

25 “Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom(L) will ever see me again.(M) 26 Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any of you.(N) 27 For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.(O) 28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock(P) of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.(Q) Be shepherds of the church of God,[a](R) which he bought(S) with his own blood.[b](T) 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves(U) will come in among you and will not spare the flock.(V) 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples(W) after them.
