They went on ahead and waited for us at Troas.
After the Passover ended, we boarded a ship at Philippi in Macedonia and five days later joined them in Troas, where we stayed a week.
On the first day of the week, we gathered with the local believers to share in the Lord’s Supper. Paul was preaching to them, and since he was leaving the next day, he kept talking until midnight.
The upstairs room where we met was lighted with many flickering lamps.
As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus, sitting on the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he fell sound asleep and dropped three stories to his death below.
Paul went down, bent over him, and took him into his arms. “Don’t worry,” he said, “he’s alive!”
Then they all went back upstairs, shared in the Lord’s Supper, and ate together. Paul continued talking to them until dawn, and then he left.
Meanwhile, the young man was taken home alive and well, and everyone was greatly relieved.
Paul went by land to Assos, where he had arranged for us to join him, while we traveled by ship.
He joined us there, and we sailed together to Mitylene.
The next day we sailed past the island of Kios. The following day we crossed to the island of Samos, and a day later we arrived at Miletus.
