20:9 A young man named Eutychus, who was sitting in the window, 1 was sinking 2 into a deep sleep while Paul continued to speak 3 for a long time. Fast asleep, 4 he fell down from the third story and was picked up dead.
20:11 Then Paul 5 went back upstairs, 6 and after he had broken bread and eaten, he talked with them 7 a long time, until dawn. Then he left.
20:31 Therefore be alert, 8 remembering that night and day for three years I did not stop warning 9 each one of you with tears.
