On the first day of the week1 we came together to break bread.2 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 room3 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 man4 and put his arms around him. "Don't be alarmed," he said. "He's alive!"511
Then he went upstairs again and broke bread6 and ate. After talking until daylight, he left.
The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.
