THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
Paul raises Eutychus from death—Paul is free from blood of all men—He predicts apostasy and cultism—He reveals a teaching from Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
after the auproar
was ceased, Paul called unto him
the disciples, and bembraced them,
and departed for to go into Macedonia.
And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,
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.
These going before tarried for us at Troas.
And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of aunleavened
bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.
And upon the afirst bday
of the week, when the disciples came ctogether
to dbreak ebread
, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
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.
And Paul went down, and fell on him, and aembracing him
said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
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.
And they brought the young man aalive
, and were not a little comforted.
¶ And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so had he appointed, minding himself to ago
And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene.
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.
For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he ahasted
, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of bPentecost
¶ And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the aelders
of the church.
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,
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,
Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, aand
faith toward our Lord bJesus
And now, behold, I go bound in the aspirit
unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:
Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and aafflictions babide
But none of these things amove
me, neither count I my blife
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 cgospel
of the dgrace
And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am
pure from the ablood
of all men.
For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the acounsel
¶ Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the aflock
, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you boverseers
, to feed the cchurch
of God, which he hath purchased with his own dblood
For I know this, that after my departing shall agrievous
wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking aperverse
things, to bdraw
away disciples after them.
Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to awarn
every one night and day with tears.
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 ainheritance
among all them which are sanctified.
I have acoveted
no man’s silver, or bgold
, or apparel.
Yea, ye yourselves know, that these ahands
unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
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 agive
than to receive.
¶ And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.
And they all wept sore, and fell on Paul’s neck, and kissed him,
most of all for the words which he spake, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.
