Acts 20 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
20 1 Paul appointed to go to Macedonia: 7 In Troas preaching until midnight, 9 Eutychus fell down dead out of a window, 10 he raised him to life: 15 At Miletus, 17 Having called the Elders of Ephesus together, 23 he declareth what things shall come upon himself, 28 and others.
1 Now [a]after the tumult was appeased, Paul called the disciples unto him, and embraced them, and departed to go into Macedonia.
2 And when he had gone through those parts, and had exhorted them with [b]many words, he came into Greece.
3 [c]And having tarried there three months, because the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.
4 And there accompanied him into Asia, Sopater of Berea, and of them of Thessalonica, Aristarchus, and Secundus, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy, and of them of Asia, Tychicus, and Trophimus.
5 These went before, and tarried us at Troas.
6 And we sailed forth from Philippi, after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days, where we abode seven days.
8 [f]And there were many lights in an upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
9 And there sat in a window a certain young man, named Eutychus, fallen into a dead sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he overcome with sleep, fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
10 But Paul went down, and laid himself upon him, and embraced him, saying, Trouble not yourselves: for his life is in him.
11 Then when Paul was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, having spoken a long while till the dawning of the day, he so departed.
12 And they brought the boy alive, and they were not a little comforted.
13 ¶ Then we went before to ship, and sailed unto the city Assos, that we might receive Paul there: for so had he appointed, and would himself go afoot.
14 Now when he was come unto us to Assos, and we had received him, we came to Mitylene.
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: the next day we came to Miletus.
16 [g]For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted to be, if he could possible, at Jerusalem, at the day of Pentecost.
17 ¶ Wherefore from [h]Miletus, he sent to Ephesus, and called the Elders of the Church.
18 [i]Who when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
19 Serving the Lord with all modesty, and with many tears, and temptations, which came unto me by the layings await of the Jews,
20 And how I kept [j]back nothing that was profitable, but have showed you, and taught you openly and throughout every house.
21 Witnessing both to the Jews, and to the Grecians the repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
23 Save that the holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying, that bonds and afflictions abide me.
24 But I pass not at all, neither is my life dear unto myself, so that I may fulfill my course with joy, and the ministration which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the Gospel of the grace of God.
25 And now behold, I know that henceforth ye all, through whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am [m]pure from the blood of all men.
27 [n]For I have kept nothing back, but have showed you all the counsel of God.
29 [r]For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Moreover of your own selves shall men arise speaking perverse things, to [s]draw disciples after them.
31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn everyone, both night and day with tears.
33 [v]I have coveted no man’s silver, nor gold, nor apparel.
34 Yea, ye know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
35 I have showed you all things, how that so laboring, ye ought to [w]support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how that he said, It is a blessed thing to give, rather than to receive.
36 And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.
37 [x]Then they wept all abundantly, and fell on Paul’s neck, and kissed him,
38 Being chiefly sorry for the words which he spake, That they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.
