He traveled through that area, speaking many words of encouragement to the people, and finally arrived in Greece,
where he stayed three months. Because the Jews made a plot against him1 just as he was about to sail for Syria,2 he decided to go back through Macedonia.34
He was accompanied by Sopater son of Pyrrhus from Berea, Aristarchus4 and Secundus from Thessalonica,5 Gaius6 from Derbe, Timothy7 also, and Tychicus8 and Trophimus9 from the province of Asia.105
These men went on ahead and waited for us11 at Troas.126
But we sailed from Philippi13 after the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and five days later joined the others at Troas,14 where we stayed seven days.
On the first day of the week15 we came together to break bread.16 Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.
There were many lamps in the upstairs room17 where we were meeting.
Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead.
Paul went down, threw himself on the young man18 and put his arms around him. "Don't be alarmed," he said. "He's alive!"1911
Then he went upstairs again and broke bread20 and ate. After talking until daylight, he left.
The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.
