When the uproar was over, Paul sent for the believers and encouraged them. Then he said good-bye and left for Macedonia.
While there, 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 son of Pyrrhus from Berea; Aristarchus and Secundus from Thessalonica; Gaius from Derbe; Timothy; and Tychicus and Trophimus from the province of Asia.
They went on ahead and waited for us at Troas.
After the Passover ended, we boarded a ship at Philippi in Macedonia and five days later joined them in Troas, where we stayed a week.
