Acts 18:18-21 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

18 And when Paul had abided many days, he said farewell to brethren, and by boat came to Syria. And Priscilla and Aquila came with him [saying farewell to brethren, by boat came to Syria, and with him, Priscilla and Aquila], which had clipped his head in Cenchrea; for he had a vow.

19 And he came to Ephesus, and there he left them; and he went into the synagogue, and disputed with Jews.

20 And when they prayed, that he should dwell more time, he consented not,

21 but he made farewell to brethren, and said [and saying], [It behooveth me to make the solemn day coming at Jerusalem, and] again I shall turn again to you, if God will [God willing]; and he went forth from Ephesus.

Acts 18:18-21 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

18 After this, Paul remained there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren and set sail for Syria, Priscilla and Aquila accompanying him. And he shaved his head in Cenchrea, for he had made a vow. 19 And he came to Ephesus, and left Priscilla and Aquila there; but he himself entered into the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews.

20 When they asked him to stay longer with them, he did not consent, 21 but bid them farewell, saying, I must be in Jerusalem at the coming feast. But I will return again to you, if God so wills. And he sailed from Ephesus,

18 [a]But when Paul had tarried there yet a good while, he took leave of the brethren, and sailed into Syria, (and with him Priscilla and Aquila) after that [b]he had shorn his head in [c]Cenchrea: for he had made a vow.

19 Then he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he entered into the Synagogue and disputed with the Jews.

20 [d]Who desired him to tarry a longer time with them: but he would not consent,

21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must needs keep this feast that cometh, in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, [e]if God will. So he sailed from Ephesus.
