New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
7 On the first day of the week, we gathered to observe the Lord's Supper. Paul was preaching; and since he was leaving the next day, he talked until midnight. 7 On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.
8 The upstairs room where we met was lighted with many flickering lamps. 8 There were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting.
9 As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he sank into a deep sleep and fell three stories to his death below. 9 Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead.
10 Paul went down, bent over him, and took him into his arms. "Don't worry," he said, "he's alive!" 10 Paul went down, threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. "Don't be alarmed," he said. "He's alive!"
11 Then they all went back upstairs and ate the Lord's Supper together. And Paul continued talking to them until dawn; then he left. 11 Then he went upstairs again and broke bread and ate. After talking until daylight, he left.
12 Meanwhile, the young man was taken home unhurt, and everyone was greatly relieved. 12 The people took the young man home alive and were greatly comforted.
