Acts 20:1–12

Paul in Macedonia and Greece

When he had gone through those regions and had given them much encouragement, he came to Greece. There he spent three months, and when ra plot was made against him by the Jews1 as he was about to set sail for Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia.
