Acts 20 (WEBP)

[1] After the uproar had ceased, Paul sent for the disciples, took leave of them, and departed to go into Macedonia.
[2] When he had gone through those parts and had encouraged them with many words, he came into Greece.
[3] When he had spent three months there, and a plot was made against him by Jews as he was about to set sail for Syria, he determined to return through Macedonia.
[4] These accompanied him as far as Asia: Sopater of Beroea, Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, Gaius of Derbe, Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia.
[5] But these had gone ahead, and were waiting for us at Troas.
[6] We sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and came to them at Troas in five days, where we stayed seven days.
[7] On the first day of the week, when the disciples were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day; and continued his speech until midnight.
[8] There were many lights in the upper room where we° were gathered together.
[9] A certain young man named Eutychus sat in the window, weighed down with deep sleep. As Paul spoke still longer, being weighed down by his sleep, he fell down from the third floor and was taken up dead.
[10] Paul went down and fell upon him, and embracing him said, “Don’t be troubled, for his life is in him.”
[11] When he had gone up, had broken bread and eaten, and had talked with them a long while, even until break of day, he departed.
[12] They brought the boy in alive, and were greatly comforted.
[13] But we, going ahead to the ship, set sail for Assos, intending to take Paul aboard there; for he had so arranged, intending himself to go by land.
[14] When he met us at Assos, we took him aboard and came to Mitylene.
[15] Sailing from there, we came the following day opposite Chios. The next day we touched at Samos and stayed at Trogyllium, and the day after we came to Miletus.
[16] For Paul had determined to sail past Ephesus, that he might not have to spend time in Asia; for he was hastening, if it were possible for him, to be in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.
[17] From Miletus he sent to Ephesus and called to himself the elders of the assembly.
[18] When they had come to him, he said to them, “You yourselves know, from the first day that I set foot in Asia, how I was with you all the time,
[19] serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears, and with trials which happened to me by the plots of the Jews;
[20] how I didn’t shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, teaching you publicly and from house to house,
[21] testifying both to Jews and to Greeks repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus.°
[22] Now, behold, I go bound by the Spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there;
[23] except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions wait for me.
[24] But these things don’t count; nor do I hold my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to fully testify to the Good News of the grace of God.
[25] “Now, behold, I know that you all, among whom I went about preaching God’s Kingdom, will see my face no more.
[26] Therefore I testify to you today that I am clean from the blood of all men,
[27] for I didn’t shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God.
[28] Take heed, therefore, to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the assembly of the Lord and° God which he purchased with his own blood.
[29] For I know that after my departure, vicious wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
[30] Men will arise from among your own selves, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.
[31] Therefore watch, remembering that for a period of three years I didn’t cease to admonish everyone night and day with tears.
[32] Now, brothers,§ I entrust you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
[33] I coveted no one’s silver, gold, or clothing.
[34] You yourselves know that these hands served my necessities, and those who were with me.
[35] In all things I gave you an example, that so laboring you ought to help the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
[36] When he had spoken these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all.
[37] They all wept freely, and fell on Paul’s neck and kissed him,
[38] sorrowing most of all because of the word which he had spoken, that they should see his face no more. Then they accompanied him to the ship.

Acts 20 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 after G3326 the uproar G2351 was ceased G3973 (AorMidInf), Paul G3972 called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) unto [him] the disciples G3101, and G2532 embraced G782 (AorMidDepPtc) [them], and departed G1831 (Aor2ActInd) for to go G4198 (AorPasDepInf) into G1519 Macedonia G3109.
[2] And G1161 when he had gone over G1330 (Aor2ActPtc) those G1565 parts G3313, and G2532 had given G4183 them G846 much G4183 exhortation G3870 (AorActPtc) G3056, he came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 Greece G1671,
[3] And G5037 [there] abode G4160 (AorActPtc) three G5140 months G3376. And when the Jews G5259 G2453 laid G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) wait G1917 for him G846, as he was about G3195 (PresActPtc) to sail G321 (PresPasInf) into G1519 Syria G4947, he purposed G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) G1106 to return G5290 (PresActInf) through G1223 Macedonia G3109.
[4] And G1161 there accompanied G4902 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) him G846 into G891 Asia G773 Sopater G4986 of Berea G961; and G1161 of the Thessalonians G2331, Aristarchus G708 and G2532 Secundus G4580; and G2532 Gaius G1050 of Derbe G1190, and G2532 Timotheus G5095; and G1161 of Asia G774, Tychicus G5190 and G2532 Trophimus G5161.
[5] These G3778 going before G4281 (Aor2ActPtc) tarried G3306 (ImpfActInd) for us G2248 at G1722 Troas G5174.
[6] And G1161 we G2249 sailed away G1602 (AorActInd) from G575 Philippi G5375 after G3326 the days G2250 of unleavened bread G106, and G2532 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846 to G1519 Troas G5174 in G891 five G4002 days G2250; where G3757 we abode G1304 (AorActInd) seven G2033 days G2250.
[7] And G1161 upon G1722 the first G3391 [day] of the week G4521, when the disciples G3101 came together G4863 (PerfPasPtc) to break G2806 (AorActInf) bread G740, Paul G3972 preached G1256 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) unto them G846, ready G3195 (PresActPtc) to depart G1826 (PresInf) on the morrow G1887; and G5037 continued G3905 (ImpfActInd) his speech G3056 until G3360 midnight G3317.
[8] And G1161 there were G2258 (ImpfInd) many G2425 lights G2985 in G1722 the upper chamber G5253, where G3757 they were G2258 (ImpfInd) gathered together G4863 (PerfPasPtc).
[9] And G1161 there sat G2521 (PresMidPasDepPtc) in G1909 a window G2376 a certain G5100 young man G3494 named G3686 Eutychus G2161, being fallen G2702 (PresPasPtc) into a deep G901 sleep G5258: and as Paul G3972 was long G1909 G4119 preaching G1256 (PresMidPasDepPtc), he sunk down G2702 (AorPasPtc) with G575 sleep G5258, and fell down G2736 G4098 (Aor2ActInd) from G575 the third loft G5152, and G2532 was taken up G142 (AorPasInd) dead G3498.
[10] And G1161 Paul G3972 went down G2597 (Aor2ActPtc), and fell on G1968 (Aor2ActInd) him G846, and G2532 embracing G4843 (Aor2ActPtc) [him] said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Trouble G2350 not G3361 yourselves G2350 (PresPasImpr); for G1063 his G846 life G5590 is G2076 (PresInd) in G1722 him G846.
[11] When G1161 he G305 therefore was come up again G305 (Aor2ActPtc), and G2532 had broken G2806 (AorActPtc) bread G740, and G2532 eaten G1089 (AorMidDepPtc), and G5037 talked G3656 (AorActPtc) G1909 a long while G2425, even till G891 break of day G827, so G3779 he departed G1831 (Aor2ActInd).
[12] And G1161 they brought G71 (Aor2ActInd) the young man G3816 alive G2198 (PresActPtc), and G2532 were G3870 not G3756 a little G3357 comforted G3870 (AorPasInd).
[13] And G1161 we G2249 went before G4281 (Aor2ActPtc) to G1909 ship G4143, and sailed G321 (AorPasInd) unto G1519 Assos G789, there G1564 intending G3195 (PresActPtc) to take in G353 (PresActInf) Paul G3972: for G1063 so G3779 had he G2258 (ImpfInd) appointed G1299 (PerfPasPtc), minding G3195 (PresActPtc) himself G846 to go afoot G3978 (PresActInf).
[14] And G1161 when G5613 he met G4820 (Aor2ActInd) with us G2254 at G1519 Assos G789, we took G353 him G846 in G353 (Aor2ActPtc), and came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Mitylene G3412.
[15] And G2547 we sailed G636 (AorActPtc) thence G2547, and came G2658 (AorActInd) the next G1966 (PresPtc) [day] over against G481 Chios G5508; and G1161 the next G2087 [day] we arrived G3846 (Aor2ActInd) at G1519 Samos G4544, and G2532 tarried G3306 (AorActPtc) at G1722 Trogyllium G5175; and the next G2192 (PresPasPtc) [day] we came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Miletus G3399.
[16] For G1063 Paul G3972 had determined G2919 (AorActInd) to sail by G3896 (AorActInf) Ephesus G2181, because G3704 he G846 would G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) not G3361 spend the time G5551 (AorActInf) in G1722 Asia G773: for G1063 he hasted G4692 (ImpfActInd), if G1487 it were G2258 (ImpfInd) possible G1415 for him G846, to be G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) at G1519 Jerusalem G2414 the day G2250 of Pentecost G4005.
[17] And G1161 from G575 Miletus G3399 he sent G3992 (AorActPtc) to G1519 Ephesus G2181, and called G3333 (AorMidInd) the elders G4245 of the church G1577.
[18] And G1161 when G5613 they were come G3854 (Aor2MidDepInd) to G4314 him G846, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Ye G5210 know G1987 (PresMidPasDepInd), from G575 the first G4413 day G2250 that G575 G3739 I came G1910 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 Asia G773, after what manner G4459 I have been G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) with G3326 you G5216 at all G3956 seasons G5550,
[19] Serving G1398 (PresActPtc) the Lord G2962 with G3326 all G3956 humility of mind G5012, and G2532 with many G4183 tears G1144, and G2532 temptations G3986, which G3588 befell G4819 (Aor2ActPtc) me G3427 by G1722 the lying in wait G1917 of the Jews G2453:
[20] [And] how G5613 I kept back G5288 (AorMidInd) nothing G3762 that was profitable G4851 (PresActPtc) [unto you], but G3361 have shewed G312 (AorActInf) you G5213, and G2532 have taught G1321 (AorActInf) you G5209 publickly G1219, and G2532 from G2596 house to house G3624,
[21] Testifying G1263 (PresMidPasDepPtc) both G5037 to the Jews G2453, and also G2532 to the Greeks G1672, repentance G3341 toward G1519 God G2316, and G2532 faith G4102 toward G1519 our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
[22] And G2532 now G3568, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), I G1473 go G4198 (PresMidPasDepInd) bound G1210 (PerfPasPtc) in the spirit G4151 unto G1519 Jerusalem G2419, not G3361 knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) the things that shall befall G4876 (FutActPtc) me G3427 there G1722 G846:
[23] Save G4133 that G3754 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 witnesseth G1263 (PresMidPasDepInd) in every G2596 city G4172, saying G3004 (PresActPtc) that G3754 bonds G1199 and G2532 afflictions G2347 abide G3306 (PresActInd) me G3165.
[24] But G235 none G3762 of these things G3056 move me G4160 (PresMidInd), neither G3761 count I G2192 (PresActInd) my G3450 life G5590 dear G5093 unto myself G1683, so G5613 that I might finish G5048 (AorActInf) my G3450 course G1408 with G3326 joy G5479, and G2532 the ministry G1248, which G3739 I have received G2983 (Aor2ActInd) of G3844 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424, to testify G1263 (AorMidDepInf) the gospel G2098 of the grace G5485 of God G2316.
[25] And G2532 now G3568, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), I G1473 know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 ye G5210 all G3956, among G1722 whom G3739 I have gone G1330 (Aor2ActInd) preaching G2784 (PresActPtc) the kingdom G932 of God G2316, shall see G3700 (FutMidDepInd) my G3450 face G4383 no more G3765.
[26] Wherefore G1352 I take G3143 you G5213 to record G3143 (PresMidPasDepInd) this G1722 G4594 day G2250, that G3754 I G1473 [am] pure G2513 from G575 the blood G129 of all G3956 [men].
[27] For G1063 I have G5288 not G3756 G3361 shunned G5288 (AorMidInd) to declare G312 (AorActInf) unto you G5213 all G3956 the counsel G1012 of God G2316.
[28] Take heed G4337 (PresActImpr) therefore G3767 unto yourselves G1438, and G2532 to all G3956 the flock G4168, over G1722 the which G3739 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151 hath made G5087 (Aor2MidInd) you G5209 overseers G1985, to feed G4165 (PresActInf) the church G1577 of God G2316, which G3739 he hath purchased G4046 (AorMidInd) with G1223 his own G2398 blood G129.
[29] For G1063 I G1473 know G1492 (PerfActInd) this G5124, that G3754 after G3326 my G3450 departing G867 shall grievous G926 wolves G3074 enter in G1525 (FutMidDepInd) among G1519 you G5209, not G3361 sparing G5339 (PresMidPasDepPtc) the flock G4168.
[30] Also G2532 of G1537 your G5216 own selves G846 shall G450 men G435 arise G450 (FutMidInd), speaking G2980 (PresActPtc) perverse things G1294 (PerfPasPtc), to draw away G645 (PresActInf) disciples G3101 after G3694 them G846.
[31] Therefore G1352 watch G1127 (PresActImpr), and remember G3421 (PresActPtc), that G3754 by the space of three years G5148 I ceased G3973 (AorMidInd) not G3756 to warn G3560 (PresActPtc) every G1538 one G1520 night G3571 and G2532 day G2250 with G3326 tears G1144.
[32] And G2532 now G3569, brethren G80, I commend G3908 (PresMidInd) you G5209 to God G2316, and G2532 to the word G3056 of his G846 grace G5485, which G3588 is able G1410 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to build you up G2026 (AorActInf), and G2532 to give G1325 (Aor2ActInf) you G5213 an inheritance G2817 among G1722 all G3956 them which are sanctified G37 (PerfPasPtc).
[33] I have coveted G1937 (AorActInd) no man’s G3762 silver G694, or G2228 gold G5553, or G2228 apparel G2441.
[34] Yea G1161, ye yourselves G846 know G1097 (PresActInd), that G3754 these G3778 hands G5495 have ministered G5256 (AorActInd) unto my G3450 necessities G5532, and G2532 to them that were G5607 (PresPtc) with G3326 me G1700.
[35] I have shewed G5263 (AorActInd) you G5213 all things G3956, how that G3754 so G3779 labouring G2872 (PresActPtc) ye ought G1163 (PresInd) to support G482 (PresMidPasDepInf) the weak G770 (PresActPtc), and G5037 to remember G3421 (PresActInf) the words G3056 of the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424, how G3754 he G846 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), It is G2076 (PresInd) more G3123 blessed G3107 to give G1325 (PresActInf) than G2228 to receive G2983 (PresActInf).
[36] And G2532 when he had thus G5023 spoken G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), he G846 kneeled G1119 down G5087 (Aor2ActPtc), and prayed G4336 (AorMidDepInd) with G4862 them G846 all G3956.
[37] And G1161 they all G3956 wept G2805 G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) sore G2425, and G2532 fell G1968 (Aor2ActPtc) on G1909 Paul’s G3972 neck G5137, and kissed G2705 (ImpfActInd) him G846,
[38] Sorrowing G3600 (PresPasPtc) most of all G3122 for G1909 the words G3056 which G3739 he spake G2046 (PlupfActInd), that G3754 they should G3195 (PresActInd) see G2334 (PresActInf) his G846 face G4383 no more G3765. And G1161 they accompanied G4311 (ImpfActInd) him G846 unto G1519 the ship G4143.

Young’s Literal Translation

Acts 20 (YLT)

[1] And after the ceasing of the tumult, Paul having called near the disciples, and having embraced them, went forth to go on to Macedonia;
[2] and having gone through those parts, and having exhorted them with many words, he came to Greece;
[3] having made also three months’ stay-a counsel of the Jews having been against him-being about to set forth to Syria, there came to him a resolution of returning through Macedonia.
[4] And there were accompanying him unto Asia, Sopater of Berea, and of Thessalonians Aristarchus and Secundus, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timotheus, and of Asiatics Tychicus and Trophimus;
[5] these, having gone before, did remain for us in Troas,
[6] and we sailed, after the days of the unleavened food, from Philippi, and came unto them to Troas in five days, where we abode seven days.
[7] And on the first of the week, the disciples having been gathered together to break bread, Paul was discoursing to them, about to depart on the morrow, he was also continuing the discourse till midnight,
[8] and there were many lamps in the upper chamber where they were gathered together,
[9] and there was sitting a certain youth, by name Eutychus, upon the window-being borne down by a deep sleep, Paul discoursing long-he having sunk down from the sleep, fell down from the third story, and was lifted up dead.
[10] And Paul, having gone down, fell upon him, and having embraced him, said, ‘Make no tumult, for his life is in him;’
[11] and having come up, and having broken bread, and having tasted, for a long time also having talked-till daylight, so he went forth,
[12] and they brought up the lad alive, and were comforted in no ordinary measure.
[13] And we having gone before unto the ship, did sail to Assos, thence intending to take in Paul, for so he had arranged, intending himself to go on foot;
[14] and when he met with us at Assos, having taken him up, we came to Mitylene,
[15] and thence having sailed, on the morrow we came over-against Chios, and the next day we arrived at Samos, and having remained in Trogyllium, on the following day we came to Miletus,
[16] for Paul decided to sail past Ephesus, that there may not be to him a loss of time in Asia, for he hasted, if it were possible for him, on the day of the Pentecost to be at Jerusalem.
[17] And from Miletus, having sent to Ephesus, he called for the elders of the assembly,
[18] and when they were come unto him, he said to them, ‘Ye-ye know from the first day in which I came to Asia, how, with you at all times I was;
[19] serving the Lord with all humility, and many tears, and temptations, that befell me in the counsels of the Jews against me;
[20] how nothing I did keep back of what things are profitable, not to declare to you, and to teach you publicly, and in every house,
[21] testifying fully both to Jews and Greeks, toward God reformation, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
[22] ‘And now, lo, I-bound in the Spirit-go on to Jerusalem, the things that shall befall me in it not knowing,
[23] save that the Holy Spirit in every city doth testify fully, saying, that for me bonds and tribulations remain;
[24] but I make account of none of these, neither do I count my life precious to myself, so that I finish my course with joy, and the ministration that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify fully the good news of the grace of God.
[25] ‘And now, lo, I have known that no more shall ye see my face,-ye all among whom I did go preaching the reign of God;
[26] wherefore I take you to witness this day, that I am clear from the blood of all,
[27] for I did not keep back from declaring to you all the counsel of God.
[28] ‘Take heed, therefore, to yourselves, and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit made you overseers, to feed the assembly of God that He acquired through His own blood,
[29] for I have known this, that there shall enter in, after my departing, grievous wolves unto you, not sparing the flock,
[30] and of your own selves there shall arise men, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.
[31] ‘Therefore, watch, remembering that three years, night and day, I did not cease with tears warning each one;
[32] and now, I commend you, brethren, to God, and to the word of His grace, that is able to build up, and to give you an inheritance among all those sanctified.
[33] ‘The silver or gold or garments of no one did I covet;
[34] and ye yourselves know that to my necessities, and to those who were with me, minister did these hands;
[35] all things I did shew you, that, thus labouring, it behoveth us to partake with the ailing, to be mindful also of the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
[36] And these things having said, having bowed his knees, with them all, he did pray,
[37] and there came a great weeping to all, and having fallen upon the neck of Paul, they were kissing him,
[38] sorrowing most of all for the word that he had said-that they are about no more to see his face; and they were accompanying him to the ship.
