25 "And now, behold, I know that all of you, among whom I went about 1preaching the kingdom, will no longer see my face.
26 "Therefore, I testify to you this day that 2I am innocent of the blood of all men.
27 "For I 3did not shrink from declaring to you the whole 4purpose of God.
28 "Be on guard for yourselves and for all 5the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd 6the church of God which 7He purchased with His own blood.
29 "I know that after my departure 8savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing 9the flock;
30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away 10the disciples after them.
31 "Therefore be on the alert, remembering that night and day for a period of 11three years I did not cease to admonish each one 12with tears.
