After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus1 came down from Judea.
Coming over to us, he took Paul's belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, "The Holy Spirit says,2 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind3 the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.' "412
When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem.
Then Paul answered, "Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die5 in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."614
When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up7 and said, "The Lord's will be done."815
After this, we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.916
Some of the disciples from Caesarea10 accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus11 and one of the early disciples.
When we arrived at Jerusalem, the brothers12 received us warmly.1318
The next day Paul and the rest of us went to see James,14 and all the elders15 were present.
Paul greeted them and reported in detail what God had done among the Gentiles16 through his ministry.1720
When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to Paul: "You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews have believed, and all of them are zealous18 for the law.19
