OF THE APOSTLES
e. To Tyre
1 And when we parted from them and set sail, we took a straight course and came to Cos, and on the next day to Rhodes, and from there to Patara.
2 And having found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, we went on board and set sail.
5 And when we completed the days, we went forth and went on our way, with all of them, including the women and children, aescorting us until we were outside the city. And when we had bknelt down on the beach and prayed,
6 We took leave of one another and went on board the ship; and they returned home.
f. To Ptolemais
7 And when we finished the voyage from Tyre, we arrived at Ptolemais; and we greeted the abrothers and remained with them one day.
g. To Caesarea
9 Now this man had four virgin daughters who aprophesied.
10 And while we remained there many days, a certain prophet named aAgabus came down from Judea.
11 And he came to us and took Paul's abelt; and having bound his own feet and hands, he said, Thus 1says the Holy Spirit, In this way will the Jews in Jerusalem bbind the man whose belt this is and cdeliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
14 And since he would not be persuaded, we became silent, saying, The awill of the Lord be done.
h. To Jerusalem, Ending the Third Journey
15 And after these days we gathered our baggage and went up to aJerusalem.
8. The Negative Influence of Judaism
21 And they have been informed concerning you that you are ateaching all the Jews throughout the nations 1apostasy from Moses, telling them bnot to circumcise their children, nor to walk according to the ccustoms.
22 What then is to be done? 1They will certainly hear that you have come.
23 Therefore do this that we tell you: We have four men who have a 1vow on themselves;
24 Take these and be 1apurified with them, and pay their 2expenses that they may 3shave their heads. And all will know that there is nothing to the things that they have been informed of concerning you, but that you yourself also walk orderly, keeping the blaw.
25 But concerning the Gentiles who have believed, we have already written, having decided that they should keep themselves from aidol sacrifices and blood and anything strangled and fornication.
26 Then Paul took the men and on the following day, 1being purified with them, entered into the temple, giving notice of the 2completion of the days of the purification, until the aoffering was offered for each one of them.
9. The Ultimate Persecution of the Jews
a. An Uproar against Paul
(1) Seized by the Jews
28 Crying out, 1Men of Israel, help! This is the man who ateaches all men everywhere bagainst the 2people and the law and 3this place; and further, he has even brought Greeks into the temple and has 4cprofaned this 5holy place.
29 For they had previously seen aTrophimus the Ephesian in the city with him, whom they supposed Paul had brought into the temple.
(2) The Intervention of the Roman Commander
32 And he at once took soldiers and centurions and ran down to them. And when they saw the commander and the soldiers, they stopped beating Paul.
35 And when Paul came to the stairs, it so happened that he was being carried by the soldiers because of the violence of the crowd;
36 For the multitude of the people were following and crying out, aAway with him!
37 And when he was about to be brought into the barracks, Paul said to the commander, Am I allowed to say anything to you? And he said, You know Greek?
38 You are not then the Egyptian who some days ago revolted and led out the four thousand men of the Assassins into the wilderness?
