Acts 16:6-10 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And they passed Phrygia, and the country of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to speak the word of God in Asia.

And when they came to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia, and the Spirit of Jesus suffered not them [and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not].

But when they had passed by Mysia, they came down to Troas;

and a vision by night was showed to Paul. But a man of Macedonia that stood, prayed him, and said [and a vision in night was showed to Paul. Some man of Macedonia was standing, and praying him, and saying], Go thou into Macedonia, and help us.

10 And as he had seen the vision, at once [anon] we sought to go forth into Macedonia, and were made certain, that God had called us to preach to them [made certain that God had called us to evangelize to them].

Acts 16:6-10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

When they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia, they came to the region of Mysia, and sought to go into Bithynia. But the Spirit would not permit them. Then they went over Mysia and down to Troas. And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: there stood a man from Macedonia who appealed to him, saying, Come into Macedonia and help us! 10 After he had seen the vision, immediately we prepared to go into Macedonia, persuaded that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them.
