Acts 20:26

26 So today I tell you that if any of you should be lost, I am not responsible,

Acts 20:26 Meaning and Commentary

Acts 20:26

Wherefore I take you to record this day
This is a solemn appeal to the elders of the church at Ephesus, who knew his doctrine and manner of life for a considerable time among them:

that I am pure from the blood of all men:
or "of you all", as some copies, and the Syriac, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions read; which seems most natural, since they could only bear a testimony for him with respect to themselves, and the people at Ephesus, where he had so behaved both in the faithful discharge of his ministry, and in his exemplary life and conversation; as that the ruin and destruction of no one of them could be laid to his charge, or any one perish for want of knowledge, or through any negligence of his; see ( Ezekiel 33:6 ) .

Acts 20:26 In-Context

24 I don't care about my own life. The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me -- to tell people the Good News about God's grace.
25 "And now, I know that none of you among whom I was preaching the kingdom of God will ever see me again.
26 So today I tell you that if any of you should be lost, I am not responsible,
27 because I have told you everything God wants you to know.
28 Be careful for yourselves and for all the people the Holy Spirit has given to you to care for. You must be like shepherds to the church of God, which he bought with the death of his own son.
