Acts 19:21-23 The Passion Translation (TPT)
A Riot Breaks Out
21 Paul had it in his heart to go to Jerusalem and, on his way there, to revisit the places in Greece where he had ministered.[a] “After that,” he said, “I have to go to Rome also.” 22 So he sent ahead into Macedonia two of his ministry assistants, Timothy[b] and Erastus,[c] while he remained in western Turkey.[d]
23 At that time a major disturbance erupted in Ephesus over the people following God’s way.[e]
Acts 19:21-23 New International Version (NIV)
21 After all this had happened, Paul decided[a] to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. “After I have been there,” he said, “I must visit Rome also.” 22 He sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, to Macedonia, while he stayed in the province of Asia a little longer.
