After saying good-by to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home.
We continued our voyage from Tyre1 and landed at Ptolemais, where we greeted the brothers2 and stayed with them for a day.
Leaving the next day, we reached Caesarea3 and stayed at the house of Philip4 the evangelist,5 one of the Seven.
He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.610
After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus7 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,8 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind9 the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.' "1012
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 die11 in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."1214
When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up13 and said, "The Lord's will be done."1415
After this, we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.1516
Some of the disciples from Caesarea16 accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus17 and one of the early disciples.
