6 Next Paul and Silas traveled through the area of Phrygia and Galatia, because the Holy Spirit had prevented them from preaching the word in the province of Asia at that time.7 Then coming to the borders of Mysia, they headed north for the province of Bithynia,[a] but again the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to go there.8 So instead, they went on through Mysia to the seaport of Troas.
9 That night Paul had a vision: A man from Macedonia in northern Greece was standing there, pleading with him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!”10 So we[b] decided to leave for Macedonia at once, having concluded that God was calling us to preach the Good News there.
16:6-7Phrygia, Galatia, Asia, Mysia, and Bithynia were all districts in what is now Turkey.
16:10Luke, the writer of this book, here joined Paul and accompanied him on his journey.
