After we1 had torn ourselves away from them, we put out to sea and sailed straight to Cos. The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara.
We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia,2 went on board and set sail.
After sighting Cyprus and passing to the south of it, we sailed on to Syria.3 We landed at Tyre, where our ship was to unload its cargo.
Finding the disciples4 there, we stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit5 they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.
But when our time was up, we left and continued on our way. All the disciples and their wives and children accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray.66
After saying good-by to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home.
We continued our voyage from Tyre7 and landed at Ptolemais, where we greeted the brothers8 and stayed with them for a day.
