Acts Chapter 20
20:19 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 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 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance
toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
20:22 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not
knowing the things that shall befall me there:
20:23 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that
bonds and afflictions abide me.
20:24 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 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 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the
blood of all men.
20:27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
20:28 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 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves
enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things,
to draw away disciples after them.
20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I
ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
