We bid farewell to everyone and set sail all the way to Brother. The next day, I arrived at Rhodes and went from there to Padala.

Encountering a ship heading towards Phoenicia, he boarded the ship and set sail.

When we saw Jubilee, we passed by from the south and headed towards Syria. Then we landed in Tyre. Because the ship needs to unload there.

After finding his disciples, he stayed there for seven days. They were moved by the Holy Spirit and said to Paul, Do not go up to Jerusalem.

After these few days, we will get up and move forward. They all, along with their wives and children, sent us outside the city. We all knelt on the shore and prayed, saying goodbye to each other.

We boarded the ship and they went home.

After completing the waterway from Tyre, we arrived at Dorimai and greeted the brothers there. We stayed with them for a day.

The next day, we left there and arrived at Caesarea. He entered the house of Philip, who preached the gospel, and stayed with him. He is one of those seven deacons.

He has four daughters, all virgins, who prophesy.

We stayed there for a few more days when a prophet named Agab came down from Judea.

When they came to us, they took Paul’s belt and tied his hands and feet, saying, The Holy Spirit says, “In Jerusalem, the Jews will bind the owner of this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.”.

We and the people of that land, upon hearing these words, strongly advised Paul not to go up to Jerusalem.

Paul said, Why do you cry so bitterly and break my heart? I am willing not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem, in the name of Lord Jesus.

Since Paul refused to listen, we remained silent and only said, May the will of the Lord be fulfilled.

After a few days, we packed our bags and went up to Jerusalem.

Several disciples of Caesarea went with us and brought us to the house of an old disciple, named Nathan, who was from Cybilus.

When we arrived in Jerusalem, the brothers welcomed us with joy and joy.

The next day, Paul went with us to see Jacob. The elders are also there.

Paul greeted them and recounted one by one what God had done through his preaching among the Gentiles.

When they heard this, they glorified God and said to Paul, Brother, see how many thousands of Jews believe in the Lord and are all enthusiastic about the law.

They heard people say, Teach all the Jews in the Gentiles, abandon Moses, and say to them, Do not circumcise the child, and do not follow the rules.

Everyone will hear you coming, what should we do?

Just follow our words, there are four people here who have wishes.

Take them and accompany them in a clean ceremony, and take out the prescribed fees for them so that they can shave their heads. So everyone will know that all the things they heard about you before are meaningless. And you may know that as a person, you follow the rules and follow the law.

As for the Gentiles who believe in the Lord, we have written a letter to advise them to abstain from offerings to idols, blood, strangled animals, and adultery.

So Paul took the four of them and went with them the next day for the purification ceremony, entering the temple and announcing the date of purification to be fulfilled. Only waiting for the priests to offer sacrifices for each of them.

At the end of those seven days, the Jews who came from Asia saw Paul in the temple and stirred up the crowd, laying hands on him,

Shouting out, ‘The Israelites are coming to help.’ This is teaching everyone everywhere to mistreat our people, the law, and this place. He also brought the Greeks into the temple and defiled this holy place.

This is because they had seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with Paul, thinking that Paul had brought him into the temple.

The whole city trembled, and the people ran together, catching Paul and pulling him out of the temple. Immediately, all the doors of the temple were closed.

They were about to kill him when someone reported to the commander of the camp that all Jerusalem was in chaos.

The commander immediately led his soldiers and several centurions to run down to them. They stopped attacking Paul when they saw the commander and soldiers.

So the commander approached and grabbed him, ordering to tie the lock with two iron chains. Ask him again who he is and what he is doing.

Everyone shouted this and that. The commander, unable to obtain the truth due to such a commotion, ordered that Paul be taken into the barracks.

When they reached the steps, the crowd crowded fiercely, and the soldiers had to lift Paul up.

Everyone followed behind, shouting, get rid of him.

As he was about to take him into the barracks, Paul said to the commander, “May I have a word with you?”? He said, do you understand Greek?

Are you the Egyptian who once rebelled and led four thousand criminals to the wilderness?

Paul said, I am a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, and not from an unnamed small town. Please allow me to speak to the people.

When the captain approved, Paul stood on the steps and waved his hand to the people. They were all silent, and Paul spoke to them in Hebrew.
