On (A)the first day of the week, when (B)we were gathered together to (C)break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his [a]message until midnight. There were many (D)lamps in the (E)upper room where we were gathered together. And there was a young man named [b]Eutychus sitting [c]on the window sill, sinking into a deep sleep; and as Paul kept on talking, he was overcome by sleep and fell down from the third floor and was picked up dead. 10 But Paul went down and (F)fell upon him, and after embracing him, he (G)said, “[d]Do not be troubled, for his life is in him.” 11 When he had gone back up and had (H)broken the bread and [e]eaten, he talked with them a long while until daybreak, and then left. 12 They took away the boy alive, and were [f]greatly comforted.

And on the first of the week, the disciples having been gathered together to break bread, Paul was discoursing to them, about to depart on the morrow, he was also continuing the discourse till midnight,

and there were many lamps in the upper chamber where they were gathered together,

and there was sitting a certain youth, by name Eutychus, upon the window -- being borne down by a deep sleep, Paul discoursing long -- he having sunk down from the sleep, fell down from the third story, and was lifted up dead.

10 And Paul, having gone down, fell upon him, and having embraced [him], said, `Make no tumult, for his life is in him;'

11 and having come up, and having broken bread, and having tasted, for a long time also having talked -- till daylight, so he went forth,

12 and they brought up the lad alive, and were comforted in no ordinary measure.
