498-499 : Eutychus Falls Asleep And Falls Out The Window

498-499  : Eutychus Falls Asleep And Falls Out The Window


And the day before his departure,
 when the disciples in Troas came together for the breaking of bread,
 Paul preached to them, and continued talking until midnight.
There were many lights in the upper room where they were gathered together.

 In one window sat a certain young man named Eutychus, who had fallen into a deep sleep.
 As Paul was long in preaching, he sank down in his sleep and fell from the third floor,
 and was picked up dead.
Paul went down and threw himself upon him,
and putting his arms around him, said, "Do not worry, he is still alive."
When Paul came up again, he broke bread and ate and talked a long while,
until break of day, and then he departed.
And they brought the young man home alive and were not a little comforted.




Paul hastened in order to Jerusalem the day of Pentecost, if it were possible.
Going from Troas, he sailed from Assos, and along the coast stopped at Mitylene,
 Chios, Samos, Trogyllium and Miletus, then Coos, Rhodes and Patara.
 From there Paul and his company sailed to Syria and landed at Tyre.
 Next they came to Ptolemais and the following day to Caesarea.

While they were there, there came down from Judea a certain prophet named Agabus.
 And when he had come to them,
 he took Paul's girdle and bound his own hands and feet and said, "Thus says the Holy Spirit,
'So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owns this girdle,
 and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles."'

When they heard these things, they begged him not to go up to Jerusalem.
But Paul answered, "Why do you weep and break my heart?
 For I am ready not only to be bound but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."

And when he would not be persuaded, they ceased, saying,
"Let the will of the Lord be done."
And after those days, they went up to Jerusalem, together with certain of the disciples of Caesarea.
