Acts 21:10-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus1 came down from Judea. 11 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.' "4 12 When we heard this, we and the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. 13 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."6 14 When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up7 and said, "The Lord's will be done."8 15 After this, we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.9 16 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.

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
