Paul stayed in Corinth for some time after that, then said good-bye to the brothers and sisters 1 and went to nearby Cenchrea. There he shaved his head according to Jewish custom, marking the end of a vow. Then he set sail for Syria, taking Priscilla and Aquila with him.
19 They stopped first at the port of Ephesus, where Paul left the others behind. While he was there, he went to the synagogue to reason with the Jews. 20 They asked him to stay longer, but he declined. 21 As he left, however, he said, “I will come back later, 2 God willing.” Then he set sail from Ephesus.
The next stop was at the port of Caesarea. From there he went up and visited the church at Jerusalem 3 and then went back to Antioch.
After spending some time in Antioch, Paul went back through Galatia and Phrygia, visiting and strengthening all the believers. 4
