Paul Returns to Antioch
So Paul still remained a good while. Then he took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and Priscilla and Aquila were with him. p He had his hair cut off at q Cenchrea, for he had taken a vow.
And he came to Ephesus, and left them there; but he himself entered the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews.
When they asked him to stay a longer time with them, he did not consent,
but took leave of them, saying, r "I must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem; but I will return again to you, s God willing." And he sailed from Ephesus.
And when he had landed at t Caesarea, and gone up and greeted the church, he went down to Antioch.
After he had spent some time there, he departed and went over the region of u Galatia and Phrygia in order, v strengthening all the disciples.

And if anyone dies very suddenly beside him, and he defiles his consecrated head, then he shall shave his head on the day of his cleansing; on the seventh day he shall shave it.
Then the Nazirite shall shave his consecrated head at the door of the tabernacle of meeting, and shall take the hair from his consecrated head and put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace offering.
Take them and be purified with them, and pay their expenses so that they may shave their heads, and that all may know that those things of which they were informed concerning you are nothing, but that you yourself also walk orderly and keep the law.
I commend to you Phoebe our sister, who is a servant of the church in Cenchrea.

1 Corinthians 4:19
But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power.
