When it was all over, Paul sent for the believers a and encouraged them. Then he said good-bye and left for Macedonia.
Along the way, he encouraged the believers in all the towns he passed through. Then he traveled down to Greece,
where he stayed for three months. He was preparing to sail back to Syria when he discovered a plot by some Jews against his life, so he decided to return through Macedonia.
Several men were traveling with him. They were Sopater of Berea, the son of Pyrrhus; Aristarchus and Secundus, from Thessalonica; Gaius, from Derbe; Timothy; and Tychicus and Trophimus, who were from the province of Asia.
They went ahead and waited for us at Troas.
As soon as the Passover season b ended, we boarded a ship at Philippi in Macedonia and five days later arrived in Troas, where we stayed a week.
