After saying farewell to the Ephesian elders, we sailed straight to the island of Cos. The next day we reached Rhodes and then went to Patara.
There we boarded a ship sailing for the Syrian province of Phoenicia.
We sighted the island of Cyprus, passed it on our left, and landed at the harbor of Tyre, in Syria, where the ship was to unload.
We went ashore, found the local believers, a and stayed with them a week. These disciples prophesied through the Holy Spirit that Paul should not go on to Jerusalem.
When we returned to the ship at the end of the week, the entire congregation, including wives and children, came down to the shore with us. There we knelt, prayed,
and said our farewells. Then we went aboard, and they returned home.
