John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 20:30

Also of your own selves shall men arise
Not only false teachers from abroad should come and enter among them, but some would spring up out of their own communities, such as had been admitted members of them, and of whom they had hoped well; such were Hymenseus, Philetus, Alexander, Hertoogenes, and Phygellus;

to draw away disciples after them;
to rend away members from the churches, make schisms and divisions, form parties, set themselves at the head of them, and establish new sects, called after their own names; see ( 1 John 2:19 ) ( 1 Timothy 5:19 ) .
