20:1 乱定之后,保罗请门徒来,劝勉他们,就辞别起行,往马其顿去。

And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto him the disciples, and embraced them, and departed for to go into Macedonia.

20:2 走遍了那一带地方,用许多话劝勉门徒,(或作众人)然后来到希腊。

And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,

20:3 在那里住了三个月,将要坐船往叙利亚去。犹太人设计要害他,他就定意从马其顿回去。

And there abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.

20:4 同他到亚细亚去的,有庇哩亚人毕罗斯的儿子所巴特,帖撒罗尼迦人亚里达古,和西公都,还有特庇人该犹,并提摩太,又有亚细亚人推基古,和特罗非摩。

And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timotheus; and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus.

20:5 这些人先走在特罗亚等候我们。

These going before tarried for us at Troas.

20:6 过了除酵的日子,我们从腓立比开船,五天到了特罗亚,和他们相会,在那里住了七天。

And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

20:7 七日的第一日,我们聚会擘饼的时候,保罗因为要次日起行,就与他们讲论,直到半夜。

And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

20:8 我们聚会的那座楼上,有些灯烛。

And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.

20:9 有一个少年人,名叫犹推古,坐在窗台上,困倦沉睡。保罗讲了多时,少年人睡熟了,就从三层楼上掉下去。扶起他来,已经死了。

And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.

20:10 保罗下去,伏在他身上,抱着他,说,你们不要发慌,他的灵魂还在身上。

And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.

20:11 保罗又上去,擘饼,吃了,谈论许久,直到天亮,这才走了。

When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.

20:12 有人把那童子活活的领来,得的安慰不小。

And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.

20:13 我们先上船开往亚朔去,意思要在那里接保罗。因为他是这样安排的,他自己打算要步行。

And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so had he appointed, minding himself to go afoot.

20:14 他既在亚朔与我们相会,我们就接他上船,来到米推利尼。

And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene.

20:15 从那里开船,次日到了基阿的对面。又次日,在撒摩靠岸。又次日,来到米利都。

And we sailed thence, and came the next day over against Chios; and the next day we arrived at Samos, and tarried at Trogyllium; and the next day we came to Miletus.

20:16 乃因保罗早已定意越过以弗所,免得在亚细亚耽延。他急忙前走,巴不得赶五旬节能到耶路撒冷。

For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.

20:17 保罗从米利都打发人往以弗所去,请教会的长老来。

And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.

20:18 他们来了,保罗就说,你们知道,自从我到亚细亚的日子以来,在你们中间始终为人如何,

And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,

20:19 服事主,凡事谦卑,眼中流泪,又因犹太人的谋害,经历试炼。

Serving the LORD with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:

20:20 你们也知道,凡与你们有益的,我没有一样避讳不说的。或在众人面前,或在各人家里,我都教导你们。

And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,

20:21 又对犹太人,和希腊人,证明当向神悔改,信靠我主耶稣基督。

Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

20:22 现在我往耶路撒冷去,心甚迫切,(原文作心被捆绑)不知道在那里要遇见什么事。

And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:

20:23 但知道圣灵在各城里向我指证,说,有捆锁与患难等待我。

Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.

20:24 我却不以性命为念,也不看为宝贵,只要行完我的路程,成就我从主耶稣所领受的职事,证明神恩惠的福音。

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

20:25 我素常在你们中间来往,传讲神国的道,如今我晓得你们以后都不得再见我的面了。

And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.

20:26 所以我今日向你们证明,你们中间无论何人死亡,罪不在我身上。(原文作我于众人的血是洁净的)。

Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.

20:27 因为神的旨意,我并没有一样避讳不传给你们的。

For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

20:28 圣灵立你们作全群的监督,你们就当为自己谨慎,也为全群谨慎,牧养神的教会,就是他用自己血所买来的。(或作救赎)

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

20:29 我知道我去之后,必有凶暴的豺狼,进入你们中间,不爱惜羊群。

For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

20:30 就是你们中间,也必有人起来,说悖谬的话,要引诱门徒跟从他们。

Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

20:31 所以你们应当儆醒,记念我三年之久,昼夜不住的流泪,劝戒你们各人。

Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

20:32 如今我把你们交托神,和他恩惠的道。这道能建立你们,叫你们和一切成圣的人同得基业。

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

20:33 我未曾贪图一个人的金,银,衣服。

I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel.

20:34 我这两只手,常供给我和同人的需用,这是你们自己知道的。

Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

20:35 我凡事给你们作榜样,叫你们知道,应当这样劳苦,扶助软弱的人,又当记念主耶稣的话,说,施比受更为有福。

I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

20:36 保罗说完了这话,就跪下同众人祷告。

And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.

20:37 众人痛哭,抱着保罗的颈项,和他亲嘴。

And they all wept sore, and fell on Paul’s neck, and kissed him,

20:38 叫他们最伤心的,就是他说,以后不能再见我的面那句话。于是送他上船去了。

Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.

使徒行传20参考

在保罗未到以前,罗马已有教会了吗?若没有,罗马书写给谁?其内容……
20:1-3 保罗在希腊时,很多时候都在哥林多,并在这里写了罗马书。虽然他那时尚未到过罗马,但是信徒已在那里建立了教会(2:10;18:2),保罗在信中提到他计划去探望罗马的信徒。罗马书是一卷阐明教义的书信,内容提到救恩和信心的意义,解释犹太人和外邦人在基督里的关系,并列出教会处事的一些实际标准。

保罗一个人去耶路撒冷不可以吗?为何要这些教会代表同去?
20:4 这些与保罗同行的人代表他在亚西亚设立的教会,每一个代表都带著自己教会给耶路撒冷信徒的捐款。保罗要他们亲自把捐款送去,是要各外邦教会都能直接与耶路撒冷教会接触,以此促进信徒彼此间的合一。同时,这也是教导教会有关施与的有效方法,因为他们可以向教会报告神怎样藉著他们的捐献来工作。保罗在哥林多后书提到这些捐款(参林后8:1-21)。

犹推古睡了,是保罗讲道不好听吗……
20:8-9 许多人聚集在这座楼房内,再加上好些灯烛所发出来的热气,使室内十分闷热,况且保罗讲道的时间颇长,难怪犹推古熟睡了,他当时大概是八至十四岁的少年人。

行色匆匆,保罗所为何事?
20:16 保罗错过了在耶路撒冷过逾越节的机会,所以他很希望能赶上过五旬节(逾越节后五十天就是五旬节)。他带著亚西亚和希腊教会给耶路撒冷信徒的捐款上路(参罗15:25-26;林前16:1-4;林后8:9)。当时耶路撒冷教会正处于经济困难的时刻。保罗或许急于要在五旬节把捐款交给信徒,因为这是向神献上赞美和感谢的节日。

凡事为人、伤心流泪,他为何还有动力去干?换了是我,很难想像我仍会继续事奉……
20:18-21 天路并不是一条容易走的路;成为基督徒并非一帆风顺。保罗谦卑事奉神,服事人,并且常常流泪,但他从来没有放弃自己的职责。救恩的信息是这么重要,他从来不会放过任何分享福音的机会。基督徒的一生会有各种遭遇,有流泪的时刻和欢呼的时候,但我们应该随时准备好向人分享神为我们所成就的美好事情,他的祝福永远胜过一生中的难处。

艰险我奋进,所靠惟我神──这是保罗的坚持;面对困难,你也不会退缩吧……
20:23 圣灵指示保罗,他将会入狱并经历苦难。尽管保罗知道这个情况,然而,他并没有退缩不去完成他的使命。以弗所教会的长老中,有一些人也将会为基督受苦,保罗坚强的性格是他们的好榜样。

他心只想为神行完他的路程,轻看世间的一切;不知道我们可以吗?世上的事很吸引啊……
20:24 一般人认为,如果一生中在知识、玩乐、金钱、事业上没有很大的收获,人生就是失败的。不过,保罗却认为除非他将生命用来成就神的工作,否则生命便毫无价值。他为生命付出的,远较他从生命中得到甚么重要。哪一样对你更重要呢?是从生命中所得著的,还是为生命所付出的呢?如果有人想为神工作,他必须一心一意。保罗是个一心一意的人,他一生中最重要的目标就是向别人介绍基督(参腓3:7-13),无怪乎保罗是有史以来最伟大的宣教士。神正寻找更多只专注大使命的人。
常听说,主内相交爱深厚,你也向往啊,不妨看看保罗……
20:31, 36-38 保罗与这些信徒的关系,是基督徒相交的美好榜样:他关怀他们,爱他们,甚至为他们的需要而流泪;他们也以爱和关怀来报答他,并且因他的离开而忧伤。他们一同祷告,互相安慰。你也可以像保罗那样,与其他基督徒一同祷告,分享主恩,关怀他人,与人同哀伤,同欢乐,从而建立深厚的情谊,惟有你为身边的人付出时,你才能得著他们。

已有的,自满足;没有的,不贪求,保罗就是如此;我们嘛……
20:33 只要能够为神工作,保罗对拥有甚么,以及身处何地从不介意。请检查你对于财富及安逸生活的态度,假如你关注自己所没有的,过于你所有的,便要重新安排你的优先次序,把神的工作放回第一位。

保罗织帐棚,为使生活舒适点;你不同意?那你认为……
20:34 保罗是一个织造帐棚的工人,他从事此工作并非为了致富,乃是维持自己和其他同工的生活,而不想倚赖任何人。(参腓4:11-13;帖前2:9)

记载耶稣生平的福音书也没记载这话,它是怎样流传下来的?
20:35 耶稣说的这句话并没有记录在福音书中。很明显,并不是耶稣所说的每一话都记录下来了(参约21:25),这句话大概是由使徒口传下来的。
