5 These men went on and waited for us in Troas,
6 while we sailed from Philippi after the Days of Matzah. Five days later, we met them in Troas, where we spent a week.
7 On Motza'ei-Shabbat, when we were gathered to break bread, Sha'ul addressed them. Since he was going to leave the next day, he kept talking until midnight.
8 Now there were many oil lamps burning in the upstairs room where we were meeting,
9 and there was a young fellow named Eutychus sitting on the window-sill. As Sha'ul's drash went on and on, Eutychus grew sleepier and sleepier; until finally he went sound asleep and fell from the third story to the ground. When they picked him up, he was dead.
10 But Sha'ul went down, threw himself onto him, put his arms around him and said, "Don't be upset, he's alive!"
11 Then he went back upstairs, broke the bread and ate. He continued talking with them till daylight, then left.
12 So, greatly relieved, they brought the boy home alive.
13 We went on ahead to the ship and set sail for Assos, where we were planning to take Sha'ul aboard - he had arranged this because he wanted to go there by land.
14 After he met us at Assos, we took him aboard and went on to Mitylene.
15 The next day, we sailed from there and arrived off Chios; the following day, we crossed over to Samos; and the day after that, we reached Miletus.
