044:020:001
And after the uproar was ceased,
Paul called unto him the disciples,
and embraced them,
and departed for to go into Macedonia.


044:020:002
And when he had gone over those parts,
and had given them much exhortation,
he came into Greece,


044:020:003
And there abode three months.
And when the Jews laid wait for him,
as he was about to sail into Syria,
he purposed to return through Macedonia.


044:020:004
And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea;
and of the Thessalonians,
Aristarchus and Secundus;
and Gaius of Derbe,
and Timotheus;
and of Asia,
Tychicus and Trophimus.


044:020:005
These going before tarried for us at Troas.


044:020:006
And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread,
and came unto them to Troas in five days;
where we abode seven days.


044:020:007
And upon the first day of the week,
when the disciples came together to break bread,
Paul preached unto them,
ready to depart on the morrow;
and continued his speech until midnight.


044:020:008
And there were many lights in the upper chamber,
where they were gathered together.


044:020:009
And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus,
being fallen into a deep sleep:
and as Paul was long preaching,
he sunk down with sleep,
and fell down from the third loft,
and was taken up dead.


044:020:010
And Paul went down,
and fell on him,
and embracing him said,
Trouble not yourselves;
for his life is in him.


044:020:011
When he therefore was come up again,
and had broken bread,
and eaten,
and talked a long while,
even till break of day,
so he departed.


044:020:012
And they brought the young man alive,
and were not a little comforted.


044:020:013
And we went before to ship,
and sailed unto Assos,
there intending to take in Paul:
for so had he appointed,
minding himself to go afoot.


044:020:014
And when he met with us at Assos,
we took him in,
and came to Mitylene.


044:020:015
And we sailed thence,
and came the next day over against Chios;
and the next day we arrived at Samos,
and tarried at Trogyllium;
and the next day we came to Miletus.


044:020:016
For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus,
because he would not spend the time in Asia:
for he hasted,
if it were possible for him,
to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.


044:020:017
And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus,
and called the elders of the church.


044:020:018
And 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,


044:020:019
Serving the LORD with all humility of mind,
and with many tears,
and temptations,
which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:


044:020:020
And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you,
but have shewed you,
and have taught you publickly,
and from house to house,


044:020:021
Testifying both to the Jews,
and also to the Greeks,
repentance toward God,
and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.


044:020:022
And now,
behold,
I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem,
not knowing the things that shall befall me there:


044:020:023
Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city,
saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.


044:020:024
But none of these things move me,
neither count I my life dear unto myself,
so that I might finish my course with joy,
and the ministry,
which I have received of the Lord Jesus,
to testify the gospel of the grace of God.


044:020:025
And now,
behold,
I know that ye all,
among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God,
shall see my face no more.


044:020:026
Wherefore I take you to record this day,
that I am pure from the blood of all men.


044:020:027
For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.


044:020:028
Take heed therefore unto yourselves,
and to all the flock,
over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
to feed the church of God,
which he hath purchased with his own blood.


044:020:029
For I know this,
that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you,
not sparing the flock.


044:020:030
Also of your own selves shall men arise,
speaking perverse things,
to draw away disciples after them.


044:020:031
Therefore watch,
and remember,
that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.


044:020:032
And now,
brethren,
I commend you to God,
and to the word of his grace,
which is able to build you up,
and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.


044:020:033
I have coveted no man's silver,
or gold,
or apparel.


044:020:034
Yea,
ye yourselves know,
that these hands have ministered unto my necessities,
and to them that were with me.


044:020:035
I have shewed you all things,
how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak,
and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus,
how he said,
It is more blessed to give than to receive.


044:020:036
And when he had thus spoken,
he kneeled down,
and prayed with them all.


044:020:037
And they all wept sore,
and fell on Paul's neck,
and kissed him,


044:020:038
Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake,
that they should see his face no more.
And they accompanied him unto the ship.
