View In My Bible
1 And it came to pass that after we had parted from them and had launched, we came on a straight course unto Coos, and the day following unto Rhodes, and from thence unto Patara. 2 And finding a ship sailing over unto Phoenicia, we went aboard and set forth. 3 Now when we had sighted Cyprus, we left it on the left hand, and sailed to Syria and landed at Tyre, for there the ship was to unload her burden. 4 And having found disciples, we tarried there seven days. They told Paul through the Spirit that he should not go up to Jerusalem. 5 And when those days there had been accomplished, we departed and went our way; and they all brought us on our way, with wives and children, until we were out of the city. And we kneeled down on the shore and prayed. 6 And when we had taken our leave one of another, we boarded ship, and they returned home again. 7 And when we had finished our course from Tyre, we came to Ptolemais and saluted the brethren, and stayed with them one day. 8 The next day, we who were in Paul's company departed and came unto Caesarea, and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and lodged with him. 9 And this man had four daughters, virgins, who prophesied. 10 And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judea a certain prophet named Agabus. 11 And when he had come unto us, he took Paul's girdle and bound his own hands and feet, and said, "Thus saith the Holy Ghost, `So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.'" 12 And when we heard these things, both we and those at that place besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. 13 Then Paul answered, "What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? For I am not only ready to be bound, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus." 14 And when he would not be dissuaded, we ceased, saying, "The will of the Lord be done." 15 And after those days we took up our baggage and went up to Jerusalem. 16 There went with us also certain of the disciples of Caesarea, who brought with them one Mnason of Cyprus, an old disciple, with whom we were to lodge. 17 And when we had come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly. 18 And the day following, Paul went with us unto James, and all the elders were present.
