Paul travels from Corinth to Antioch
18 Paul remained in Corinth with the believers for many days. Then he left them. Priscilla and Aquila also went with him. They went to the port called Cenchrea. They got on a boat there to sail to Syria. Before they left, someone cut off all the hair on Paul's head. This showed that he had made a promise to God.
18:18God had helped Paul to do many things in Corinth. Maybe he was saying thank you because God had helped him.
19 They all arrived in the city called Ephesus. Paul left Priscilla and Aquila, and he went into the Jewish meeting room. There he talked about God's message with the Jews. 20 Some of them asked Paul to remain in Ephesus with them for a longer time. But he did not agree to stay. 21 Before he left, he said to them, ‘If God wants me to come back, I will return to you.’ Then Paul got in a boat and he sailed from Ephesus to Caesarea. 22 When Paul arrived in Caesarea, he went on to Jerusalem. He said, ‘hello’ to the group of believers there. Then he travelled to Antioch in Syria.
23 He stayed in Antioch for some time. Then he left there and he travelled through the regions called Galatia and Phrygia. He spoke to all the believers in these places. He helped them to trust God and to be strong.
