1 When the uproar was over, Paul sent for the disciples, encouraged them, said goodbye, and left for Macedonia.
2 He went through that region and spoke many words of encouragement to the people. Then he went to Greece
3 and stayed there for three months. When Paul was going to board a ship for Syria, he found out that the Jews were plotting to kill him. So he decided to go back through Macedonia.
4 Sopater (son of Pyrrhus) from Berea, Aristarchus and Secundus from Thessalonica, Gaius from Derbe, Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus from the province of Asia accompanied Paul.
5 All these men went ahead and were waiting for us in Troas.
6 After the Festival of Unleavened Bread, we boarded a ship at Philippi. Five days later we joined them in Troas and stayed there for seven days.
