Leaving the next day, we reached Caesarea1 and stayed at the house of Philip2 the evangelist,3 one of the Seven.
He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.410
After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus5 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,6 'In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind7 the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.' "812
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 die9 in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."1014
When he would not be dissuaded, we gave up11 and said, "The Lord's will be done."1215
After this, we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.1316
Some of the disciples from Caesarea14 accompanied us and brought us to the home of Mnason, where we were to stay. He was a man from Cyprus15 and one of the early disciples.
