Paul Returns to Antioch

Acts 18

18 After this, Paul stayed many days longer and then took leave of x the brothers 1 and set sail for Syria, and with him y Priscilla and Aquila. At z Cenchreae a he had cut his hair, for he was under a vow. 19 And they came to b Ephesus, and he left them there, but c he himself went into the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews. 20 When they asked him to stay for a longer period, he declined. 21 But on taking leave of them he said, "I will return to you d if God wills," and he set sail from Ephesus.

22 When he had landed at Caesarea, he e went up and greeted the church, and then went down to Antioch. 23 After spending some time there, he departed and f went from one place to the next through the region of Galatia and Phrygia, g strengthening all the disciples.
